Love this place. Hostess was so kind and amazing. We had an extra guest over our reservation and they were very accommodating. Everyone who got meat tacos loved them, veggie tacos werenot bad, but nothing special.

The Tonga Hut in Hollywood is my favorite tiki bar in the world, I don't know what else to say after that. The ambience is amazing, the drinks are always on point, the service is good. We didn't have food so I can't rate that but... I don't go there for food, I go for tropical drinks in a relaxing atmosphere. Like I said, it's the best for that.

I love the Tonga Hut. Love the staff, ambience, service & the cocktail quality. However, I didn't like The Tiki Dog I ate. It didn't match what was described & was not good. Also, the QR code menu prices were lower (for the Tiki Dog items) than what my receipt showed. I paid for my friend's food order too & it was more expensive than expected. The Tiki Dog staff member offered a paper menu, but I declined thinking the digital one was accurate. Maybe the paper copy was accurate; though, I have no idea. The Tiki Dog staff member was helpful & nice. Just a pricing issue & not a fan of the food options. My friend didn't enjoy her food items either. I much prefer Durangos Tacos. Love them! I will return regardless. Just wanted to share.

We had a great time at the Tonga Hut! I know the parking lot thing is temporary, but it was actually nice in a way. It's nice not having to fight for a seat in a bar and having people be all over you. But we are looking forward to seeing the inside decor at some point in the future. Waitresses were great! Drinks were great! Fun time!

We just had drinks but they were fantastic and the service wonderful. We sat on the back lanai. There’s currently a 90m limit per party and that was perfect for an early post-quarantine outing.

I really enjoyed that all safety procedures and QR code were clearly labelled up front before you even entered. Appreciate the hostess was informative and worked with getting 2 separate reservations into 1 table. The only thing that I noticed is how quickly the 1hr and 30mins went by. By the time I ordered my 2nd drink they put in the order but it was right before closing, they accidentally initially double charged us, but the server remedied that since we only got the initial drinks, not 2nd round. You've done a great job and the patio looks amazing!!!
