Humuhumu’s description

The Golden Tiki opened in Las Vegas' Chinatown on July 24, 2015. The man behind The Golden Tiki, Branden Powers, has been part of the nightclub scene in Las Vegas for some time now (he was Creative Director at the Hard Rock Hotel), but is himself a longtime lover of Tiki, having spent some of his youth DJing Exotica tunes at the Islands Restaurant

The Golden Tiki is in a large space, 4,000 square feet, and split into four different zones. The interior design and build out were done by Danny "Tiki Diablo" Gallardo. The bar has a thatched roof, and is topped by an animatronic talking tiki head, named Goldy, created by Erik "Irk" Hedman. A loveseat-sized artificial giant clam is popular for photos.
A flaming pu-pu platter is available on Friday and Saturday nights.

Cool to look at but falls short on every other front. Drinks are juice with a splash of rum and lacking in that punch all around. Service leaves much to be desired as well. Just can’t say I’m in love. Keep giving it a shot when doing tiki tours of Vegas with visitors but am continually underwhelmed.

Believe the hype: Golden Tiki is top notch tiki. The decor is great, the service is friendly and fun, and the drinks can hold there own against any other tiki bar. The food was good (we had the orange chicken), and it’s also in Chinatown so there are tons of good restaurants nearby. They have a nice selection of swag that includes t-shirts, a good selection of munktiki un-branded mugs, and a couple excellent branded mugs. They also sell their menus for $5 so you don’t need to awkwardly swipe one if you’re a menu junkie. Highly recommend; they’re doing good things here.

Loved it. Will return when I come back to Vegas. Happy Hour appetizers were just right. Mai Tai excellent.
