Made reservations for my wife’s birthday and “assumed” we would be located in the restaurant area vs the bar area ( in from of the band). The music was great but we were unable to converse at our table. The back portion of the restaurant was taken by a private party.
Had I known this we would have made other arrangements and come to Tikis another time.

Is very loud and a lot of obnoxious people were eating around us. We spent the past three days up on the North Shore and had terrific seafood which left us Seeking the same quality in Honolulu but we didn’t find it

家族旅行の際に利用しました。
雰囲気はクラブよりの居酒屋という感じ?でした。
料理は美味しく、陽気なウェイターさんにも大変良くしてもらいました。子供がいたのですが、クレヨンやぬりえもくれたりと、家族連れでも安心できます。
ステーキのボリュームも、味も素晴らしく、お代わりをしてしまったくらいですが、料金は思ったよりもリーズナブルです。
ワイキキのはじのホノルル動物園よりなので、泊まる場所が近ければまた利用したいと思います。

If you have a reservation for around sunset, make sure you ask them for a table on the edge. They only give those tables to people who specifically ask for them or make an issue of it.

Great sunset. Food was pretty good, but way over priced. It’s a chain, so you kind of get what you’d expect from a chain. They come take a “free” picture, and then try to sell you it for $20. You order their famous mai tai and they try to sell you the glass it comes in. But the service was great and the view of the sunset over Waikiki unbeatable.

We had a wonderful dining experience that exceeded our expectations. One thing most important was one of our party was having issues and not feeling well. When asked about what would help to make her dining experience exemplary in light of her situation it was perfect! There was a clear broth delicious vegetable, chicken soup with lemongrass and other seasonings but just the right amount for her digestive delicacies that day. They also offered just an order of the Molokai sweet potatoes with a light coconut milk for her other choice. It was perfect. We so enjoyed a preview of the St. Patrick’s Day spring rolls with that amazing house cured corned beef by your Executive Chef Ronni Nasuti utilizing local Kunoa Beef. The cheese sauce with Guinness was a triumphant way to dip and roll those pieces in extreme decadence. We had a Poisson Cru in pot cones that was subtle but with underlying notes on the palate that complemented the beautifully subtle ingredients letting the fish speak for itself with a strong voice.
We were so lucky to have Sarah as our host for the evening. Her knowledge and well paced non-intrusive participation in our dining was just what we needed. She knew everything that we wanted to know through questions and added pertinent information that helped us want to try the menu items by her enthusiastic way of describing the vision of the kitchen. We loved the fresh catch, oh my! The guava glazed ribs were so perfect!!!!! Nice crispy outside and fall off the bone texture without being “mushy” as can be the case. They were happy to let me have the wasabi mashed potatoes instead of fries which was the perfect combination. We sat outside, the temperature was great, we had a great view. We were staying at the Halekulani for the weekend. The next day we saw our favorite pool host from House Without A Key. As we were ordering our breakfast the famous Mai Tai’s he asked “what did you do last night for dinner?” He recommends you to guests!

We were on vacation in Waikiki. This was our favorite meal. The lamb shank with shrimp gnocchi was delicious and the Parmesan chicken was also excellent. Dessert was orange creme brûlée. The service was great. A little got outside before sunset but beautiful views of Waikiki. The pina colada was not excellent

We ordered braised lamb shank for our entrees because it is one of our favorites. It was not properly prepared, should be "fall off the bone tender", it was inedible. The waiter was very gracious and quickly offered us anything else on the menu which was then delivered by management with apologies. The food was adequate.

This restaurant needs better management. Waiter was involved with a large party & clearly had no time for us.
He was frazzled, sweating as he ran by. Drink orders were wrong, salad course was plopped down
with our main courses.
