Fun, old fashioned Tiki bar

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

My husband and I went here on a Friday for Happy Hour. I had read about it in a google search for a place with a great Happy Hour and we decided to check it out. We were not disappointed! We went during Happy Hour and did not find it as busy as we would have thought so we had... More

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
