The Mission: To Have Fun!
Tiki’s was created by three friends who all went to University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa with a goal to open a restaurant where they could hang out and bring their friends and family. Even now, visitors and locals alike come to unwind and have a good time here. And it’s not just good times here—Tiki’s serves a full menu of handcrafted drinks and dishes made entirely from scratch. The restaurant/bar is decked out in with replica tikis from all over the world. In the front and center of it is a band playing classic Hawaiian tunes and a hula dancer gracing the stage. It’s the perfect place to get a few drinks, catch the sunset over Waikiki Beach, and even watch fireworks on a Friday night. 

Tiki’s Grill & Bar’s Smoked Marlin Dip

On The Menu
In addition to their dishes being made from scratch, Tiki’s ingredients are made almost entirely with produce, products, and fish from local farmers, butchers, suppliers, and fishermen. Some of their popular dishes include: the Kiawe Smoked Marlin Dip is served alongside Moloka‘i potato and taro chips and local pickles. The Kiawe Smoked Fish Arancini are crispy risotto rice balls that contain house-smoked local fish and comes with a sun-dried tomato rosemary chardonnay sauce. Tiki’s best-selling entree, the Macadamia Nut Crusted Fish, is their catch of the day coated with macadamia nuts and panko. Then it is served with Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, basil cream, and fresh, local vegetables.

Green Program
Tiki’s supports local by using local ingredients and by taking multiple measures to reduce their impact on the environment, which are outlined in their Green Program. Takeout orders are packaged in corn-based biodegradable containers. Extra produce and goods are donated to the Hawai‘i Foodbank and Aloha Harvest on a regular basis, and the food waste that is not suitable for donations is delivered to local farms and fed to livestock. Glass bottles are collected bi-weekly to be recycled, and other waste is burned as fuel at the City and County of Honolulu’s H-Power waste-to-energy plant.

Implementing planet-saving measures, supporting local, and keeping things fun is what has kept Tiki’s going for the past two decades.
