Great Place To Hang Out With Friends!

Hula is a casual restaurant/bar with a modern decor, and is a great place to meet up with friends after work. They have a big long table across from the bar that is perfect for big groups. The service is good and the menu has a lot of options from a long list of appetizers to full meals. Their... read more

Stopped in for dinner on a Friday night around 7pm. It was bustling and busy, but we got seated right away. Our server greeted us immediately, took our drink order and appetizer order in a flash, and even offered some suggestions on dinner. The fish bites for an appetizer was an excellent choice! They were so delicious and crispy! I... More

This was my first visit and I guess it was what I expected. The music was a bit loud. The food was fun and Polynesian-themed. We had the coconut shrimp rolls as an appetizer and those were delicious. For dinner we had the coconut chicken served with fried plantains and rice, and the coconut white fish served with cole slaw... More

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 built around... 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
