Putting the Happy in my Hour!

We appreciated the opportunity to sit outside during our meal on a very busy Friday evening. The weather was warm and it was quieter than tables inside. Our waiter was professional, knowledgeable and didn't even write down our order, but remembered it precisely in his mind. Th food was absolutely delicious!

Okay, I'll admit it. I'm a sucker for themed things. So when I saw a restaurant with the words Hula and Tiki, I grabbed a girlfriend and swayed right down to the Huki Lau. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of the food. The front of the restaurant opens to the street for excellent Old Town people... More

As visitors to "Old Town" Scottsdale, we'd figured on having dinner somewhere that had some sort of southwestern theme. We never would have even looked at Hula's Modern Tiki had it not been for the recommendation by a friend who lives locally. Hula's turned out to be a very good choice. Considering its touristy location, the prices aren't all that... More

Visited with friends for a late lunch. The food was fresh and tasty. The lobster bisque was good..being hot would have made it great. Pulled pork good and large portion. Service was attentive. Would have preferred the server to have a more tasteful shirt on, rather than a slightly questionable one. Atmosphere is island casual. I'd recommend if you're looking... More

So glad we tried this taste of Hawaii in Phoenix. We were seated quickly, outdoors with heat lamps to warm us. Lots of variety on the menu, and we took full advantage: our party ordered a Mongolian Beef Bowl, Cocojoe's Chicken Plate, Hapu with Soy-Miso sauce, and Hawaiian Lobster Bisque. All were delicious, although the Soy-Miso sauce was salty. The... More

Just North of Downtown Phoenix on Central, you can find a little piece of the Islands! We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon and were very pleasantly surprised with every aspect of the place. Very nice outdoor seating with heaters (yes, it isn't always blazing hot in Phoenix) that lead into roll up doors that open into both the bar... More

Good food with healthy choices, nice firepit on the patio. Close to downtown if you're going to an event!

We have been many times, and this is the first review. The food is good at this indoor / outdoor hangout. It has become a good after work place to get a bite and a drink. You will be able to find a good selection on the menu, so come and give it a try. I recently had the ribeye... More
