Humuhumu’s description

4 Kahunas Tiki Lounge opened in June 2018 in Arlington, Texas, between Dallas and Fort Worth. The bar is topped with thatch, and backed with four large carved tikis, caricatures of the four "kahunas" who run the bar.

This place nails it. Best drinks, homemade syrups, and phenomenal garnishes. A must visit.

We heard about this through Critiki and mentions from other regulars who had been unimpressed with Pilikia and its Tiki Bar offerings in DFW and this, finally, is the real deal. The decor is there and perfect, sort of a semi-modern vibe with well organized seating and a mix of well-understood lighting that keeps everything dim and pleasant at all times of day. Hours are great, and while it's not the easiest to find, there's plenty of parking nearby if you catch them at a not-busy time of day.
The important thing here, however, is the drinks. This place understands its menu and what it's going for. The drinks are great, and the 1944 Mai Tai I had was handled with brilliance in replicating and improving upon the recipe I remember sampling at actual Trader Vics locations elsewhere. Their Zombie, in turn, is literally the best I've ever had, and the spin they take on their drinks is a unique sort of touch on the typical recipes while keeping to the rule of real fruit juices.
It took a long time to finally get a good Tiki offering after Trader Vics died, but this is it, and if this is only the beginning in DFW, we're going to be looking forward to a wonderful Tiki renaissance.

I am so happy that there is now a tiki bar in the DFW area! I visited for the first time on the night before their grand opening. The space is not large, but it is decorated quite well. The bar has a thatched roof and showcases four interesting carved tikis. When I was there, the television behind the bar was showing Jaws. I had three drinks: the Kahuna Painkiller (perfect drink to start off the night, sweet but not too sweet), a Mai Tai Royal (their spin on the 44 Mai Tai, seemed a bit sweeter with some added fruit juice maybe? I enjoyed this one for sure), and a Missionary’s Downfall (tasty, but this was my first time having this drink so I can’t compare it to others). I really enjoyed my drinks! Their garnish game is really on point, with some creative additions to the usual such as a pirate ship made out of citrus rinds or a butterfly made from an orange peel. I had a chance to chat with one of the owners, who was charismatic and kind. The bartenders were great and attentive. The music was very tiki, and the lighting made it feel cozy and tropical. The decorating is definitely done well! Overall, I will certainly be back to try more drinks and soak up the great tiki vibes!
