“Only thing better than the food was the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

I found this place online when searching for eating spots close to the condo we were renting. It was an easy walk to Tiki's and the food and service was superb. Our first visit was a spur of the moment one, we reserved online just 30 minutes before we wanted to eat and strolled down to the beach. We were seated on the lanai overlooking Kalakaua Ave and Kuhio Beach Park. We watched the sun set as I sipped a Mai Tai and my wife had a Lava Flow, a pina colada with a swirl of strawberry in it. We split an ahi poke appetizer, which was nicely seasoned and the ahi melted in our mouths like butter. Keeping the ahi theme I had a seared ahi steak. Perfect. For dessert I had a apple volcano, which was an apple tart with a salted caramel sauce drizzled over it. The dessert wasn't too sweet as some can be, it was a perfect balance of flavors. Tiki's is well worth your dollar. We returned two days later and were not disappointed.

“High prices for average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

As we stayed in the aston Waikiki beach hotel we thought we would give tikis a try one night. Unfortunately the food we found to be very overpriced for what it was you can get better meals elsewhere for less money me and my wife found.

Aloha Gareth. We’re disappointed to hear that your dining experience with us was not as enjoyable as you had hoped. We believe that our prices are fairly reasonable considering the area for which we are located. We would like for you to give us another try sometime to prove that our food is definitely worth the value! Mahalo, Bill.
