I had the Zombie, a Mai Tai and a Blue Hawaii. Both the Mai Tai and the Zombie were served in a tiki mug, which was quite nice. The Mai Tai was the classic Trader Vic's recipe and was quite good. (I'm told that it will be $5 every night of the week!).
The Blue Hawaii was actually the best Blue Hawaii I've ever had. I'm not a big fan of that drink, but this one was really good.
The Zombie was the only questionable drink. It didn't taste quite like a Zombie, though I couldn't put my finger on what was amiss. They were really open to feedback about the cocktails, so they keep tweaking their recipe throughout the evening. I tasted one that Sherryaki had ordered later on and it was much better.
Of their original creations...I tried Sherriyaki's cocktail called Cat Nip, and Tonga Tom's drink, The All Black and both were good. I also tasted a drink called Rum Pot that Marty Lush ordered that I liked...but I shall let them tell you about their drinks.
I feel fairly positive about this new tiki destination. They really want to make sure the classic drinks are right and their originals are tasty. Both Josh and Joey were very welcoming and were very interested in our feedback. Full of the Aloha spirit.
