Very Good for lunch - 4 Stars. YES, we would go back. LONGER REVIEW: We come to Hawaii on business 4-6 times a year for decades now, and it has been a while since we were at Tiki. This is a nice relaxing Waikiki place that should please most. Service from Zach was Excellent, and we enjoyed a nice leisurely lunch on the patio overlooking the beach across the street. My wife had the Hebi (local fish) sandwich with fries, I had the "trio" of sliders with a side salad. Nothing left on the plate and we are not big people. Very good - all very tasty. A nice brew quaffed down our food. A nice place for lunch - YES we would go back.

3rd time there and loved every minute! Sean (or Shawn) is an awesome staffer and made the night more memorable! My fave restaurant in Hawaii and got another cool take home mug to add to the collection. Best tiki decor-perfect Hawaiian experience!

I booked here on a whim for beach side dining- and I got a vegetarian ratatouille tower. OMG. I wasn't expecting much because it was just vegetables- but holy crap, I didn't know vegetables could taste so good (or be so filling). My meat-eating friends woofed up some surf n turf (my friend who never finishes his plate finished most of his plate.) and calamari.

Basically a sports bar with fruity drinks in goofy glasses. We ordered five meals and two were ok. Two were actually bad and one inedible. Even the desserts, which usually are decent at this type of restaurant were not great.

Prices were about $40/ person. Pretty high even for Waikiki.

We chose Tiki's because of their awesome Thanksgiving set dinner. And a lot of other people did as well. The food was plentiful and very tasty. A traditional turkey dinner with a Hawaiian flare. I had leftovers for several meals and loved it. The view was nothing to sneeze at and the drinks were fun with glasses or in my case a coconut we could keep.

Live music is a plus. Great bar and views of beach. Ordered trio of sliders bbq pork, cheeseburger and fried fish with fruit side. Sliders were ok and fruit was not as fresh as I expected for Hawaii. Ate there on my last visit in January 2017 and good was better.

I have brought my family here several times when we visit Hawaii. The food is delicious and always gets rave reviews from them (and me too!). The Ashton Waikiki offers three hours free valet parking with validation from the restaurant which always makes things so much easier. Service is great also.

Went to try the Restaurant week special which was shown on a local morning television feature. The first course "Ahi Tartar" was very good as well as the Lobster with rissotto. The main course of "Braised short ribs" fell off the mark, but the dessert of coconut cake made up for it. Service was very friendly, but wait help had too many stations to cover to be as attentive as necessary. Tiki's has a few of Waikiki Beach with a limited view plane.

We went there on a Friday evening to watch the sun set into the Pacific and enjoy some Mai Tai's and dinner. The food was good, nothing great but worth the price. The Mai Tai's were also very good, although pricey at $10 per and we went through 5 of them (4 for us, one sent to another table where a woman was celebrating her birthday). Our waitress was "ok" but not very friendly or personable, and didn't even let us know whether or not the birthday drink had been delivered until we asked about it (still not sure if it was actually sent or they charged us for the drink but didn't make it). We would go again, but mostly for the view of the water.

They have great views here, too bad we had a late dinner and couldn't see anything. The food and service were excellent. My husband started with the Beef Gyoza app. Crunchy, juicy, delicious! I had the Miso Butter fish with all veggies. The fish was light and smooth, great flavor and they really loaded me up on the extra veggies. The grilled zucchini was super! My husband had the Seafood Risotto. Ample portion of shrimp, veggies and risotto in a light sauce. He loved it! Overall we enjoyed our meals and were impressed with the service.

Our reservation was at 5:30 we arrived at 5:25pm. We were seated at 5:50pm, but waited 20 minutes to get our servers attention. When I finally asked a server who our server was she said it was her and that “she’s coming, she’s just really busy”. I understand and don’t want to be THAT customer, but I do believe you owe me an apologize. Which I never got. It took another 20 minutes to get the drinks we ordered from the bar and received our dinner shortly after. Both tables to the right and left of us were complaining about the service as well. athe table to our right, the server gave them a complementary dessert for the trouble. But Which was nice, but our server didn’t give us nor the table to the left anything. Maybe she was having a bad day? They have a live band which I LOVED! Overall it wasn’t bad, but not SUPER amazing.

The past few times our visits here have been horrible however, we were attending a pre-concert party here so we gave it another try. The place was PACKED! The woman at check in was completely overwhelmed however, she was a gem. People were very unkind to her but she was absolutely lovely to them. I think she could have used additional help. When we finally got seated about 30 minutes late from our reservation, it was fabulous! Our server, again, could have used help but he was great. Food was great, atmosphere fabulous! Will definately go back again!

Had high expectations for food and drinks. Dinner entree of Parmesan chicken linguine can be improved by making the chicken juicer and not dry, by making the broccoli florets softer and removing the hard stalks, and by adding more sauce in the pasta. The Hawaiian iced tea can be made better by making it stronger. Crab dip pupu was the only best tasting item. Not sure if going back there again.

This restaurant was honestly one of the worst places I have ever eaten at. Our family was recommended this place from a friend, and after eating here we weren't sure if she was trying to mess with us or not. From the menu we ordered 4 different salads and they all were terrible. The dressing was bland on 3 out of the four, the watermelon was old, and the lettuce was dry on the mixed greens. The Cesar salad looked exciting but the dressing was bland. I had ordered a $26 plate of ribs and I was sure they wouldn't mess this up, I guess I was wrong. The ratio between the sauce and the ribs was completely off. The sauce also was very salty and overall gross. The meat was chewy, almost as if it was microwaved a couple of times. My brother had ordered grilled cheese and fries off of the menu, and had claimed that it was the worst grilled cheese he had ever had. The cheese tasted old and the bread was also soggy. The fries were surprisingly good, but let me be honest, have you ever had bad fries in your life.
Not only was the food bad, the service was also horrid. When my family was about to ask the waitress for drinks, she walked away from our table mid sentence. The coconut shrimp was good but it's not fresh, it tasted like the kind I can buy frozen from Trader Joe's. The Mai Tai was not good, this is the first Mai Tai I didn't finish.
