Tahiti Nui/Tiki Man Pizza. A+ vibe, Hawaiian (Don Ho forever) music and tiki bar scene along with the island’s (reputed) best Mai Tai’s. For cinephiles, The Descendants shot here. So there you go. A ton of good reasons to hang out on the North Shore of Kauai.
The pizza, #3, essentially BBQ’d chix (the waitress fave) is not so great with its rock hard crust. Reminds of the crap you would get at 3 am in college and not complain. Difference now is it is 9 pm, you have had one drink and you want it to taste good, not just fill up your stomach in hopes of thwarting mega-hangover-city.
It is also expensive. Service is friendly and you are paying for the entire oeuvre on this one so in some ways The Monster will let that slide.
Should you come and eat from Tiki Man? Not really unless a slice is all you need. Should you come to Tahiti Nui, have a drink and soak it all in? 100%.
Why go? Atmosphere.
