Fun, cool and fairly-priced!

We enjoyed a late lunch at Hula's Modern Tiki after a day spent touring the Phoenix Art Museum, just a bit down the street. What a fun atmosphere and what a delicious menu. We caught the tail end of their "weekend brunch" menu, so my friends had omelets, and I had pork tacos. One of the omelets was... read more

Drag out your Aloha shirt and get some grub at the place where the locals like to party. I had the encrusted fish with mashed potatoes and coleslaw. It was excellent. Our server had the best eye contact with each person at our table. This is a talent that everybody should learn because it immediately shows interest in the person... More

Nice open air bar. Steak was thin and underwhelming. The ribs were awesome. The drinks were $10 a pop, a bit high considering the prices of the entrees...

Having been raised in Hawaii, i know my way around great Hawaiian food and this is some of the most unique I have eaten. Mac Nuts and Avacado in Ahi Poke?! It was AMAZING! There were so many great sounding things on the menu, but I chose the crunchy fish tacos. This was a perfect balance taco, super crispy and... More

Great happy hour prices, nice appetizer menu. Try the Back Scratcher drink; you get a real back scratcher! Great drinks. Fun atmosphere to be with friends for a drink after work. Right on Central near Camelback.

I am not one for trying new places but was pleasantly surprised with the amount of dishes that they had that were possible for me to order. I ordered the pulled pork that was very good and served with an excellent BBQ sauce on the side. I tried taste of the food around the table and the food was very... More

Anyone who's read my reviews knows how much I appreciate good food, ambiance, etc. Lately, boyfriend and I have been having a good run of finding new delish places to try. Hula's had been HIGHLY recommended to me in the past but I'd never gotten around to it. This past Sunday, boyfriend and I stopped by the location on Central.... More

Very fun place, great food and very attentive bartenders. I didn't know what to drink or eat and they helped me decide. Such good people which is a good sign. If I lived in Phoenix I'd go back regularly to get that kind of caring service from Christine and Drew.

I was intrigued by Hula's interesting menu with a South Pacific flair and innovative vegetarian and fish dishes. I settled on the ahi tuna bowl. The tuna was tasty and cooked to order but the rice was mushy and gloppy. However, we were with a large group to maybe the timing of the dishes affected the meal. I would give... More
