“Fun, but average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

The entertainment at Tiki's was great, but the food was only average. I have a serious allergy to MSG and could not get a clear answer on what I could eat there.

We would like to apologize to you for not being able to get you a clear answer on the MSG. We do not add any MSG to our food, however, some of our pre-ready ingredients such as seasoning’s and sauces do come with MSG in them. We will make every effort to accommodate any food allergy our customer’s may have. Your concerns about getting an answer will certainly be addressed with our staff. Mahalo for the compliment on our entertainment and we hope you’ll stop back by sometime to give us another try! Sincerely, Bill.

“Wouldn't go there again.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

If you order ribs, that's all you get! All food seems to have to be ordered as separate servings which will increase your bill! Music was too loud and while you can see the sun set, it's better if you go to the beach to see it. We won't be going back.

We would like to apologize for your visit not being satisfactory. We would venture to guess that you ordered your ribs off the Lanai Menu. That order of ribs is not accompanied by a side, as stated on the menu. If you are looking for a side with your ribs, we do have a rib entrée under the “specialty” items on our dinner menu, which comes with a side of fries. We hope that clears up any miscommunication on the menu. Mahalo for your feedback, Bill.
