TBD… by Vikram Garg opened its doors in 2019 as a pop-up restaurant. TBD…has now been determined and is here to stay. Garg, an award-winning chef in Hawaii and around the world, offers a bold and progressive approach to global cuisine, yet in a relaxed and approachable setting.

The restaurant’s design is elegant and minimal, yet the culinary experience is anything but simple as it takes the palate on an exploration of Chef Garg’s global career and eclectic influences. The menu features a selection of ala carte dishes, a tasting menu, craft cocktails, a curated wine list, and a private dining room with bespoke menus – all of which, deliver a non-traditional experience with sustainably sourced superior ingredients where culture, cuisine and conversation are plated perfection.

A Credit Card is required for all reservations. A party of 6 or more will be choosing from our "Tasting Menu". Cancellation and no show fees apply starting 72 hours to the reserved time and date.

    The restaurant is so beautifully decorated and felt so spacious. Our server, Damien, was just so kind and attentive. We really appreciate his patience and understanding, especially with our toddler. The food itself was delicious - perfectly flavored with wonderful textures. I personally loved the freshness of the ahi tartare and the depth of flavors of my steak frites.

    Yes it is a limited menu. But everything I ordered was quite fresh and cooked perfectly. The items on the menu are not the most imaginative fare out there. But what there is is very well executed with very fresh ingredients. Truly excellent value with the tasting menu. Nice choice of wines by the glass. The most exemplary part of the evening was my server, Damian. Excellent service, reminiscent of European fine dining. Kudos to you Damian!

    Second floor location in the Lotus Hotel. Difficult to find, as no one at the hotel front desk, and neither the restaurant website or Open Table say that it is in that hotel. Service excelllent. Limited menu - but food is well-prepared. Disappointing that not open to the outdoors.

    Celebrated my birthday with family on Sunday, 6:00 pm reservations. The restaurant has a modern, contemporary design, nice lighting, and quiet ambiance. Service was friendly, professional, and attentive. Food was great! We started with their yummy warm House Made flat bread with butter and olive tampenade. We stopped after two orders so we wouldn't fill up on bread! All five of us decided on the 4-course tasting menu, and we all really enjoyed our whole meal. I started with the Baked Shrimp “À La Escargot”, succulent shrimp baked in garlic butter, served with their flat bread to soak up the butter...a winner! The Ceasar Salad came with bacon and Parmesan cheese, and my entree, Lamb Shank “Tajine,” was tender, well-seasoned, and impressively presented! My dessert of vanilla ice cream, two chocolate chip cookies, and a wonderful chocolate sauce was the perfect way to end the meal! Also, I highly recommend the Scallops Risotto, Hamakua Mushroom, “Vialone Nano Rice”! We'll definitely be back!

    I ate here a few times before the pandemic and it was underwhelming. The menu was all over the place and I didn't know what kind of restaurant this was trying to be. This time was a much more pleasant experience. The menu is still a little disjointed, but I enjoyed the choices. Everything from foie gras gyoza to scallop risotto to Indian curry. All were very good. Their best value is their tasting menu with a few opportunities to "up-sell" for the more luxurious items. The setting is really quite lovely, and the service was top notch. Definitely worth a try. Oh, and I saw a really nice private dining room on the way out. Looks like it could fit around 10 people.

    Our waiter was amazing - knowledgeable about every dish, answered all our questions with ease and made great recommendations. The food was amazing - beyond amazing - my husband said it is the best meal he’s ever eaten!! We did the 4 course menu and I did the wine pairing which I though was great value for money. Highly recommend this restaurant! I wish I’d taken more photos but was so engrossed in the flavors totally forgot but this is our daughters mock tail!

    Did the 4-course. Service was great, seemed like the servers were doing team service and it worked well. The food however was very underwhelming, being that the appetizers were the best part of the meal. Very fishy salmon, and a boring pork chop that was only a single cut. Thought this was a good chef?

    TBD is really a terrific restaurant. The food experience is exotic with an international menu and great service explaining food in detail. We especially enjoyed the specials and the food items suggested (Naan, shrimp tartare) after we requested information. A nice clean dining room that was empty when we arrived and almost full when we departed. The chef, Vikram, came out to great us and explain some of his cuisine. This adds a special touch to a great meal/evening. It was a real treat!

    TBD was an incredible dining experience! The restaurant appears undiscovered as it resides on the 2nd floor of The Lotus Hotel, about a 15-20 minute walk from Wikiki Beach, just about approaching the fountain on Kalakawa. There is no signage for TBD, and very subdued signage for Lotus, the hotel. (Plenty of parking should one drive instead of walking.) The place is beautiful, with a fabulous bar, and overall decor. I started with the Beef Tartare, clearly one of the finest I've had, having been a fan of this starter for a long, long time. Excellent!! My Husband claimed the Ahi Tartare was amazing! My Scallops Risotto was the finest main I've had in Honolulu by far! It reminded me of a similar choice I enjoyed in Venice about five years ago, but TBD's version was richer, risotto's pleasant texture on the tongue, and scallops seared perfectly, smartly one side only, ensuring the gentle firmness and taste of the Ocean's bounty. My Husband's choice of staying with the Island and it's subtle Asian influence chose the TBD...Bento, and marveled at the offerings of Humus, Falafel, Smoked Eggplant and Flat Bread. Reservations are accessible as TBD remains a well kept secret, hidden away as it is. Don't miss the opportunity to try a "foodies wonderland!"

    The only problem I had was the reservations process. I secured my reservation with a credit card (which I am not a fan of... ) but I had a question and wanted to talk with someone - but the phone numbers listed on Open Table and Google were "out of service." I finally called the front desk at Lotus to see if you were open or had perhaps closed because of the pandemic. I never got through. Wondering how many reservations you lost because of this problem.

    Struggling to find a fine dining restaurant on a Saturday night in Waikiki, we ended up at TBD after reading some great reviews. The restaurant did not disappoint! The service was fabulous, great wines, and the food was delicious. We ended up sharing a starter, salad and main as we are just not used to the portion sizes served in the US. Highly recommend TBD…by Vikram Gary

    This is the fifth time I've dined at TBD. Each time the service and food had been consistently fabulous. Last night had the cocktail made with jasmine and butterfly pea. Lovely. Very adult. As a non-drinker I appreciate the options. It's the perfect place for a special occasion, impressive date and to wow out-of-town guests.

    There is never a bad meal here. I know when I walk in that I’m going to come out feeling very satisfied. Although the menu is limited, what they do they do very well. I had the lamb shank, which was tender, fall off the bone, delicious. My dinner date had the pork chop which they also enjoyed. We shared the shrimp escargot, the house flat bread (incredible), and a salad. All fresh and delicious. I highly recommend the shrimp escargot. It is out of this world! For dessert, we shared the banana cream puffs, which are plentiful and super yummy without being too sweet. Our server, Isaiah, was very polite, friendly, and attentive. One of the best servers I’ve had in a long time. I’m also really impressed that they continue to take Covid check-in protocols serious, asking for proof of vaccination, your ID and a temperature check, which many people aren’t doing anymore. The restaurant is very well appointed, tables are spread out for social distancing and it is very clean. lastly, any leftovers are well packaged and placed in very nice tote bags that you can reuse. You just can’t go wrong at TBD!!
