We had a very nice dinner there. The taro rolls with banana butter were worth the wait. Main courses were very good. Unfortunately the night we were there, it rained very hard so they lost many of the tables, which delayed our reservation by 45 minutes. They need to do a better job of seating people in order, as a... More

After a day full of work in school or office, dinner with friends to make lighter conversations with the view and air coming from you Waikiki Beach will be a great ambience to relax and destress. The background music thru the live band also helps achieve this. If you want a concrete memento of the experience, professional photographers are just... More

The French toast is great, the view is the best part! A good value and friendly staff. The location is good, being as it is across the street from the beach and Honolulu Zoo.

We have dined here three times in 6 days. We just could not get enough of the friendly service, the view and of course the food. This place is perfect if you are a first time visitor to Waikiki. Sunsets from its upstairs location are perfect and views of the beach night or day are just what you come to... More

Tiki Room embodies a Polynesian ambiance with a view of Waikiki beach. Moderately priced meals. I had Japanese-style short ribs that were absolutely delicious. Literally melted in my mouth. My wife had a fish that she wasn't crazy about at a more expensive restaurant on Maui. But she raved about the preparation at Tiki. Our daughter has worked at a... More

Had lunch there. The view is wonderful, elevated above the street and the crowds. The food selection is vast, as well as drink selections, many with mugs you keep. The server was very friendly and attentive. Food results were mixed. The pulled pork on a taro bun was wonderful. The fish tacos with taro tortillas was very disappointing. The fish... More
