This is my go to restaurant for days I don't feel like cooking! Huge portions, tasty and fresh food each time. Menu is out of the world with range of cuisine. from Chinese to Polynesian and some American favorites too. I try to order something different each time. Staples for me are definitely their fresh shrimp fried rice -cleaned and... More

My husband and I love to meet here for lunch. The people are friendly and the food was great! They are inexpensive and give you lots of food. Love their Sweet and Sour chicken. Great sauce.

Whenever my friend and I don't know what we want to eat, we meet at Tiki-Tiki, the midway point between our jobs...the service is fast and we can get in and out under an hour. The spicy tofu lunch is the best tofu I've had and my favourite dish on the menu.

Average, not big on flavor. Somewhat greasy. Fast service though. Not someplace I would go out of my way to go. It's better than some of the nearby alternatives. I'm not sure why they don't do just a bit to jazz up the freshness and flavor.

We had take out from Tiki Tiki and it was terrible! The moo shu pork had too much soggy cabbage, pork didn't seem fresh and the mushrooms were canned! The crab Rangoon wasn't crispy and the crab tasted "crabby" - yuck! the pancakes for the moo shu were too thick and the sauce was too thick. The fried rice was... More

This is a review for the Midlothian location. The people are so nice BUT I have yet to receive a correct food order in 4 orders. Not difficult requests really. Example; rice no onions & they still put in onions. Food left out of bag. Every order had mistakes. After 4 tries we will not be back again.

Ok, I have to admit we went there to get a little tikiness and asked to be seated at the bar. At first we were disappointed as there was no bartender and no others in the bar. Nevertheless, we ordered a Tiki Tiki and a Zombie and were soon transported into a very good mood. The old photos on the... More

I give them a 5 for atmosphere simply for the back room bar. I love to go in and have a Mai Tai while waiting for takeout. It's untouched since the 1970's it seems and it's awesome. The food is very good, especially the ginger lobster when in season - that dish is exceptional.
