Humuhumu’s description

The Jungle Bird opened in October 2016 in Midtown Sacramento. The bar and restaurant is owned by Melissa and Tyler Williams (of Sacramento's Tank House) and Buddy Newby. The decor includes lauhala and bamboo, with a few large tikis. There is an outdoor patio. A full menu of tropical drinks, including many classics, is available. The small food menu has a mix of old school Polynesian and modern Asian-Pacific fare, including a Pu-Pu Platter.

I was so excited to finally go to Jungle Bird. We made a hotel reservation and hit the road. The decor was kitschy fun with cute parrots hanging around, our waitress was friendly, and the food was quite tasty. The chicken skewers, Korean rice bowl, and pan-fried noodles were yummy.

Then our drinks came. I got a Mai Tai, since that's a pretty standard tiki drink, and almost choked on it. It tasted like someone put a few squirts of Torani caramel syrup, a splash of sweet n sour, and a bit of rum into a glass. It was a nasty sugar bomb, and in no way resembled a Mai Tai. My bf got his drink, which was equally horrid. We each got a second drink, both of which were just as disappointing. If you love Tiki vibe, decent grub, but aren't serious about your tiki drinks, this might be your bar.

We're hitting our local tiki bar tonight to cleanse our palates.

Really Fabulous, Authentic Tiki Bar, and a welcome addition to Sacramento's exploding Bar and club scene, with a Revival style that has been Long overdue! Tyler and Buddy run a tight ship!
