Humuhumu’s description

Hula's Modern Tiki opened in Phoenix in late 2009, and comes from the same minds behind the hit Hula's restaurants in Monterey
Hula's Island Grill & Tiki Room
Monterey, CA
Bar & Restaurant
and Santa Cruz

. The concept here is a bit different—while the Monterey and Santa Cruz locations have more of a surf-meets-tiki feel, the aesthetic here is a mix of midcentury modern and tiki.
The dominant feature of the space is a massive, hexagonal window that looks straight out of a '70s sci-fi film set (the building actually dates to 1965). The interiors are all sleek, but executed with a variety of organic materials to bring a sort of barely-primitive feel. The indoor area features a large bar, and there is outdoor dining.
There is at least one large Tiki tOny tiki. Tiki mugs, especially from Munktiki, fill cases around the restaurant. Volcano bowl drinks are available, and drinks are served in glassware with the Hula's tiki logo. Like the other Hula's locations, it has won raves for its food.

Overall very pleasant experience. Service was friendly and excellent. Food fantastic and drinks good. I prefer more traditional tiki decor and atmosphere than this place offers. Much more contemporary vibe and very light inside. However, it’s hard to fault the place for this as the name of the establishment is Hula’s MODERN Tiki. In the end what it all comes down to for me is would I go again? The answer? A resounding YES!!

Looks like it still open but it relocated (5114 N 7th St.) due to losing their old lease because the building owners wanted to redevelop.
