My husband and I really enjoyed Tikis. This is my first time in Hawaii and I really wanted a drink that came in a pinnapple. Tiki’s delivered! The Edamame is a must have!

On our first morning in Honolulu we went to Kiki's for a continental breakfast. Not only was the food delicious (fresh, fresh fruit and ultra flakey pastries!), but we met Viki (hostess) and Ambee (bartender). They were so friendly that we decided to come back the next morning--and every morni g of our stay! They shared so much with us of the best to see and do in Hawaii, and became our friends. The views in the morning and at sunset are just amazing! We had dinner and drinks as well, and all were just perfectly delicious!

Great view of Waikiki Beach! If you are going for the food, I would not choose it, but for the ambiance and view, I would recommend it. Very friendly and attentive staff. Very cool beach vibe, and even the Tiki glasses we found fun and not overly priced at all. The food does not get great grades due to the ribs being very tough, the Spicy Korean Short Ribs being tasty, but more pot roast with gravy then short ribs. The salmon was very tasty, as was the appetizers we had, but if you are shooting for view and ambiance, this is a great place, but not quite for foodies.

We sat on the patio closest to the beach side which we wanted and really enjoyed. They had live music.
I had the Ginger Salmon and substituted mashed potatoes for sautéed spinach. It was delicious and I would order again. The Coconut Shrimp was more of a fried shrimp with some coconut and the sauce was just ok. If you love Coconut Shrimp, pass on this one.

We made reservations for noon but got to Tiki’s at 10 AM. We sat ourselves. Hostess Vicki was quick to notice was didn’t have a menu so she brought menus over and remembered that we were there earlier in the week. The staff is always so welcoming and friendly. Mahalo to you all for making us feel like Ohana. Aloha a hui hou

We were a family of 8, including a 3 year old. The atmosphere was great. The patio was overlooking the Waikiki Beach and had great views. We were pleasantly surprised to find the food excellent. The portions weren't miniscule at all, and the price was reasonable unlike the typical touristic restaurants with a view. Overall, wehad a great time!

We love Tikis and eat there every time we visit Honolulu, but this time we left slightly disappointed. The food was rather lacking in ingredients and flavour, for the price that it was.
I'm sure we will be back again in the future but we dont have that same excitement as we usually do, based on our last experience

The photographer lady who walked to each table was pretty persistent and said “really? Wow”. When we declined to purchase the 5x7 print (sun was in our eyes and not flattering”. She was just rude. Everything else about the dinner was fantastic! Live band was good and a great addition to the dining experience.

We go to Tikis every time we are on Oahu. It is a family tradition. Love the taro rolls with banana butter, calamari katsu, coconut shrimp and macadamia crusted catch of the day.

Came here on vacation. Overpriced mediocre food, weak alcoholic drinks even the “doubles”, felt like i got hustled as soon as i walked out. Used to 4 star and 5 star restaurants back home this was an average 3 not worth the bill

Booked a reservation here because we wanted to be able to see the beach while we ate. The views were beautiful but things went downhill from there, particularly when it came to service. Our waitress was absent most of the meal and we had to chase her down for anything we needed and the food was only ok to good. It’s pretty commercialized (maybe a chain?) which we didn’t realize before we went, so the prices were high for a mediocre quality experience.
