    Favorites were the green beans and fish tacos. Had a reservation, but no table was reserved for us. Was a bit frustrating. Initially wanted to sit outside, but without a table reserved, had to sit inside. Great vibe inside, so it’s all good. Server Thalia was great!

    Having been here a few times during vacation over the years returning this time we would have to say it has been just ok. Service was mediocre and food was just ok. Some uncleanliness of the dishes, lack of service was not what we had experienced in our previous years. Don’t think we would come back again.

    The service was super fast. Check out the menu online before entering. They take your order before open seatinf. Julie, the server, was great! Food was good and very consistent with sister-restaurant, Monkeypod. Wish they would have had pumpkin ravioli. Don’t forget to leave plenty of room for the banana cream pie (s). Plenty of parking. $136 for three.

    Mahalo for the great service. I brought in some film production people for lunch during in the middle of our scout for a future film project. None of them had been there before and all of them loved the food and service. Will definitely recommend it again or make reservations again if I need to host again. Mahalo nui! Kekama

    Moku Kitchen is a very "touristy" place---an eatery that would appeal more to those in their 20's to 40's. The quality of the food served is between good to very good. The atmosphere is energetic with lots of people talking loudly, laughing and enjoying themselves. Located in the Kaka'ako section of Honolulu, parking is validated.

    Did not like that when I made a reservation I couldn't get the time I wanted so went to the next available. But when I got there people could just go in. When my reservation came up we had to order at the bar and then go find a table. What was the point of making a reservation. Food came out cold and dry and when I asked for malt vinegar I never got it or a refill on my drink. Loved Mokus pre covid but now it sucks. Lots of staff but service was still not good

    We came to Moku Kitchen for the first time today July 16, 2022 on our honeymoon. It was recommended by a friend as well as having read great reviews. We got the pot stickers for an appetizer & even though they were delicious, the sauce under them was SUPER spicy. Beware. Other than that our dinner was good. I had a cheeseburger with garlic truffle fries on the side I shared with my husband. He had the steak tacos. He said he likes those as well. I would recommend Moku Kitchen to any person who will be in the area soon!

    My boyfriend and I went to Moku Kitchen for our anniversary night and it was great! I highly recommend putting in a reservation, which we did. If you don't arrive 15 minutes past your reservation time, they'll call you and see where you are at to make arrangements. Everything is farm to table! Our favorite small plate was the House Kalo ravioli. It was very loud with loud music and what not (which we don't usually experience), but it was an overall enjoyable night and experience.

    This is my "go to" place to meet up with friends or grab dinner, as the food is always tasty and consistent. I love that there is open outdoor seating in the age of COVID, so that I can still enjoy going out. My only complaint is that we have to consistently ask for serving utensils (chopsticks), since obviously no one wants to be using their fork or knife that went in their mouth to scoop shared food. I think this should be obvious by now and can be incorporated into server training. Also, I know that these aren't being supplied by the restaurant, but someone needs to address the aggressive flies that surround the outdoor dining. My dining mate mentioned some wind-up apparatus that she saw at another restaurant that you put on the table to keep them away. Please look into this! We spent a good 45 minutes shooing them away and its really annoying and dirty. Still love you, though!

    Order at the counter and a server brings your items out to a table of your choosing. Birds fly into the restaurant since it is open air (outdoor seating and open doors for indoor dining). Food was well prepared and delicious! Bathrooms were clean.

    Not sure why Moku hasn’t pivoted out of the service they provided during the height of covid (which was appreciated at the time). Just sad this place feels like a cheap cafeteria now instead of the great restaurant it was. Monkey Pod in Ko Olina is back to normal. So sad that I can’t recommend this location anymore. The food was cold and undercooked. Service took so long just to pay our bill. Disappointing …

    Easy to access and find. Food was delicious and better than expected. Price point was perfect. Thank you for some wonderful food at a price a family could afford without going to a chain restaurant and end up disappointed. Only issue I had was having to start a tab at the bar before I could sit down and be served by a waiter. Seemed odd until I realized I could have a drink in my hand faster, but honestly would have enjoyed just being seated and looking at a menu.

    We want to like Moku Kitchen because it’s so close to our home! We’ve tried at least five times always wishing we’d chose a different restaurant. It’s a fun environment and has live music. You order at the counter. The counter staff is always friendly and helpful. Then, disappointment sets in. You wait forever for water and your server to show up with your drinks. They don’t use traditional soda brands and the soda has been flat every time. We’ve never had a meal where at least one person didn’t get the wrong dish and we’ve never had a meal where all the parties got their food at the same time. When something is wrong it takes a long time to flag a server down. We’ve never had a server check on us after dropping off the food. No one clears the table before dessert. They just push dirty plates around to put down the desserts. The food isn’t good enough to put up with the crappy service. The staff is nice enough, just disorganized and not attentive. The food is just okay. We joke that if we drank more cocktails maybe we just wouldn’t care? Nevertheless they are geographically desirable…

    First let me say that I dined at Moku Kitchen several times before the Pandemic and always enjoyed the experiences. What I liked was the a waiter/waitress took your order. The atmosphere was warmer, quite more romantic. Service and food was great. Last night, we had to wait to order order our food from a counter, then try and find an open table. There was live music so in order to carry on a conversation with my date had to yell! Which is what everyone else had to do in the restaurant. So it was a noisy atmosphere! Food was warm, my GF ordered the special fish with noodles, 3 oz a fish with some noodles for 39$?! Very few choices on the menu. Not how I remembered this place. I really hyped this place up to my GF and was disappointed and embarrassed. Won't eat there again!

    Food was great for the price. Drinks were good too. Service was a bit confusing as the attendants/staff were doing things out of order probably due to division of roles. I would recommend it for a quick bite.
