We have been visiting Kauai for a week. Our goal was to try a new restaurant every day. And we would order the same thing. Fish tacos, of course. We are from Bakersfield, California, and you cannot get fresh fish there. Every day we have had amazing fish tacos. Today we went to Tiki tacos, and these are by far... More

We tried 2 types of fish tacos (forgot the kind my boyfriend got) but I got a pork Taco. They are a really decent size and the pork was AMAZING. Great flavor and crunchy too. Perfect. We went twice even!!!

Stopped here for lunch on the recommendation of Johnathan from SUP Kauai. Good choice. This is Tacos only - no rice, no beans, no extras. Was a bit crowded even at 2pm on a Tuesday. Had to wait a few minutes to order and about 20 minutes for food. A bit stuffy inside, so we sat at one of the... More

Small hole in the wall. Fairly quick service. Only tacos, no sides. The Hawaiian royal was delicious! The Asada on the other hand was bland bland bland. Worth a trip but won't blow ur socks off

Vegetarian (and easily made vegan) tacos for $5 each in Kauai - you just can't beat that price! I alternated between only two restaurants the whole trip - Tiki Tacos and Java Kai (both in Kapa'a). The Tiki Tacos were excellent because: (1) You can eat cheap and well at the same time (2) You can add on extras which... More

The filling and contents of the taco were absolutely fantastic, with some high quality ingredients but the soft taco ruined it a bit for us by being quite soggy. If you like soft tacos this is a fantastic place to eat.

We are staying close and we have eaten here twice and won't hesitate to go again! This is a gluten FREE HEAVEN. Everything is gfree. Everything. And the tortillas are the best you have EVER tasted in your life. I promise. We had the tamales. My hubs liked them I wasn't a fan. But the tacos: pork, fish, to DIE... More

My wife had the beef tacos and she said it was good. I had a regular fish taco and a spicy fish taco next time I will just get the regular fish taco the spicy kind of overpowers the delicate flavor of the fish.

I tried tacos at 4 other places on Kauai (Duke's, Aloha Taco Truck, Paco's Taco and Da Crack) and Tiki Taco was the best! Handmade corn tortilla was soft, warm and didn't fall apart. The fish was fresh and well seasoned. The carne asada was tender. Delicious! Plenty of parking and a short drive north after kayaking on Wailau River.

Fantastic, freshly made tacos. The tortillas are hand made, the fish is fresh off the boat that morning, the guacamole is fresh and lively. Even the grilled vegetable taco for the vegetarian was extremely tasty. Very pleasant service. Even the bathroom is special, in a very fun way. Go early. Great variety of hot sauces. I had to drag my... More
