Delayed in posting these. Finally tried out Tiki No for myself because I had to confirm whether the drinks were truly as bad as everybody has told me. Yep. The layout and decor of Tiki No is fantastic and has SO much potential to be an awesome place if they could nail the drinks down. Here's what was up for me:

1. Lychee Luau - $6 for happy hour
First off it was nice to see the words "happy hour" at a tiki joint. Never seen that before that I can reall. Anyway not bad for 6 bucks. Ten minutes later when I asked about the lychee liqueur, the bartender couldn't find a bottle. Not THE bottle, but A bottle. What the hell did you put in my drink then? Rather, did you make my drink sans the namesake ingredient?


2. Navy Grog - $14
This is the drink I've heard the most disappointing feedback on. My friend ordered it before three times and it tasted different each time. The big plus is that you get the ice cone but the taste wasn't worth it. Maybe it was Sammy Hagar's Beach Bar Rum or the other ingredients I didn't catch. Big waste of 14 bucks.


3. Zombie - $10
Very interesting to have a zombie cost less than a Navy Grog or at least noticeably so. Being so disapointed with my Navy Grog, I wanted something with a punch and a bit of cinnamon. I kept smelling burnt sugar from everybody's Toasted Marshmallows so I needed that angle. What I got was a pink zombie which had me really worried - it actually wasn't awful but more like a Zombie Light.

Still mussing around with the idea of a Don's Special-esque daiquiri. Better than the first try, probably because I've accepted that I'll have to use the good rum or it just won't work.

I just returned from London where we spent two nights at the Hilton Park Lane. This means we also went to Trader Vic's twice: once for cocktails and once for cocktails and dinner. I am glad they had a happy hour!


First a few pictures of the decor:





First night:

Mai Tai


Zombie



Second Night
Mai Tai - we were able to get in one drink for Happy Hour so I chose another Mai Tai - not pictured

Mojito - I love mojitos and this one was made with Havana Club.


Navy Grog - no ice cone but instead had rock candy on a stick.


Tiki Bowl for two with dinner


Coffee Grog


My significant other had a Tahitian Mudslide for her after dinner drink and it was VERY good. Just don't look up Tahitian Mudslide on Google. You have been warned.


It was a great experience. There were lots of groups of business men and women having drinks and I was amused as the most popular drink for them appeared to be Corona. I guess that is considered exotic for the locals travelers. ???

I have not been to a Trader Vic's in the USA in at least ten years so it was hard to compare that experience but they were all very good drinks. I was hoping to sit at the bar and see what they used for the Mai Tai but it was very busy. When it cleared out a bit, I was able to watch a few drinks being made and they seemed to have generous pours. Malibu was front and center on the shelf so that was a bit disappointing but it was also at every pub we went to.

The second night with four cocktails each plus dinner was expensive (and the exchange rate didn't help). Regardless, it was well worth it.

Rbeyer68, first time I went there I had the premix Mai Tai & the Zombie too - a potent combo for sure! I staggered out that night

I was amazed at people drinking Corona in there too, I guess that's 'playing it safe in dangerous surroundings'.

Having just done it, I disagree - go ahead & google Tahitian Mudslide, just don't expect anything related to the drink or pleasant.

Allow me to chime here - I also don't know how comparable to the drinks in the US the drinks are at London's Trader Vics are... but I have sat / pushed / lurched my way to the bar a few times to observe what they pour.

On their speed rail they have Appleton VX, Myers, Green Island regular & overproof.

The Mai Tai is premix, Myers & lime.

The Navy Grog is Myers, OVD Demerara rum, something gold PR style & their Navy Grog club concentrate.

*I think* (I really can't remember) their Zombie is Appleton VX, Myers & either Green Island or Goslings 151.

Last time I observed was a good 3/4 years ago (during a LH151 drought) so this may all have changed. I don't speak so highly of the drinks but it's still a popular destination for me - a real immersive experience when I revisit.

My two drinks tonight:

Dead Reckoning (made with Mount Gay Black Barrel):



Blue Hawaii:



I hardly ever / never drink the Blue Hawaii but fancied one & added a 1/2oz of maraschino - a nice addition.
