Humuhumu’s description

Tiki Iniki opened in Princeville, on the north side of the island of Kauai, in 2013. It was brought to life by Michele Rundgren, wife of famed all-over-the-musical-map Todd Rundgren. The two fell in love with Kauai through their visits to the Coco Palms resort. They moved to Kauai just after Hurricane Iniki destroyed the resort. All these years later, they have now opened a place of their own.
The interior of Tiki Iniki was created by Bamboo Ben.

How to find it

Tiki Iniki is in the Princeville Shopping Center, near Ace Hardware.


There is a parking lot.

The wife and I got a chance to come to Kauai for a week and of course Tiki Iniki was on the list! It definitely has potential to be a great tiki bar but the lack of music, football on big screen TVs, bros in t shirts and very unpersonable staff earned it low marks from me.

I give this place high marks. My wedding dinner was here after my spouse and I got married on a nearby beach at sunset..............
spitfire is a semi-regular at Tiki Iniki.

I've been here quite a lot since my family lives nearby. Ben's decor is fabulous (and Woody's lamps), but the laser lights added afterwards are really off-putting. The food and service are what you would expect ("island" food - generally good fish, spam in the burger, etc. - good and consistent servers are hard to come by on the north shore, so it's hit or miss). The saddest standout, however, is the utter disappointment in the cocktails. The "Trader Vic's Mai Tai" tastes nothing like it should (both in comparison to the original and in terms of not making a concerned face after one sip) and the other drinks are consistently too sour and/or just poorly made. On guest bartender nights (with a series of "specials"), the drinks were outstanding, but on a normal day, I stick with cider or the Lovely Lini. :( Come for the decor, or stop by for lunch, but my hopes of having a backup for those night when the Nui is too full or loud were dashed.
