Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hands down the best Mexican cuisine on the island. Tommy the owner and his wife made my friends and I feel welcomed our very first visit, we’ve officially become regulars. We found this hidden gem less than a week ago and have visited four times since. Their food lacks nothing and consistently meets all of our high expectations being from North America. Their taco portions are filling whether you choose the soft shell or hard corn tortilla shells. You get two massive hard shells or three soft flour tortillas depending on your craving. I’ve tried all of the tacos and enjoyed all, my favourite is the “pulled bbq chicken” (so juicy). The bbq pulled chicken ones are below in my photo of the three tacos. I’ve tried a couple of their appetizers as a shareable around the table and have also really enjoyed them. Lastly, the ambiance of the place is beautiful especially at night when they light their tiki torches placed all around the garden. Sad to be leaving Gili T in a few days but will most definitely revisit next year when I’m back! Well done guys, Brandon

Wow, there is a lot to say about this place. My girlfriend Laura and I were biking on the island when it started pouring rain. We pulled over to the side of the road and happened to see that Tiki Grove was in front of us. We decided to stop for one drink to wait out the rain. As soon as we walked through the door, we sat at the bar and met the owner, Tommy. While we ordered a drink he told us about his incredible vision for an authentic tiki bar with amazing tacos. His inspiration comes from the first original tiki bar of the world, Smugglers Cove in San Francisco. And wow, the drinks are fantastic. We had the best rum style drinks of our life along with fantastic tacos. We tried the jerk chicken tacos and the fish tacos, both which were wonderful. If you like a spice kick, try the jerk tacos. Along with the tacos we also had house made potstickers with chili soy sauce which were great. Every drink we had was strong and well mixed, which is a rarity to find on the island. Tommy made our experience one of a kind, spending time talking to us throughout the evening. Fun music played from speakers and old time movies such as Elvis Presley specials were on the TV at the bar, perfectly matching the style of the restaurant. Try the shark bait, Mai tai, and if available, the cocktail permanent vacation. We will come back again before our stay finishes on the island. Do not miss this spot! FYI, it is not on the main strip of the beach, it is inland a bit. Well worth the short few minute walk from the beach.

A Must for a great dinner on GT! This little boutique restaurant in a cosy alley on Gili Trawangan is So Very Nice! Food and drinks are simply excellent! Wine selection too (the best Sauvignon Blanc on Gili / Bali). The ambience is lovely, this little restaurant set in a small palm grove in the middle of the island. It is stylish, beautifully lit palm trees and garden, even a beautiful rest room ;) Tiki Grove has a special theme every day, with very price-worthy drinks and menu - simply delicious!! Very fresh, tasty dishesof good quality - Plus the Best SoundTrack of the Island!! Lovely, groovy music fitting all ages. Staff is great, very friendly, experienced and speaks good English. The owners, a lovely Canadian couple, takes such good care of their guests and they are very nice to talk to. We hope they will continue to prosper, because they have such a wonderful little gem of a restaurant with excellent food in a lovely garden <3 Thank you for two wonderful evenings in your haven on Gili T!

Wow! High praise indeed! Thank-you sooooooo much! We crushed the grapes for the wine ourselves, I wrote all the music, grew the palm trees, discovered electricity to light the trees and invented tacos. We're quite proud of our little paradise. Thank-you for noticing!

We went here on our first night based on Trip Advisor reviews. The food was INCREDIBLE- very authentic, fresh and tasty ingredients. My husband ordered the Mexican chicken tacos and I ordered the spicy jerk chicken tacos… and then I ordered another plate of them because they were so delicious. I had the Zombie cocktail as it was on special and it was very tasty and a great serving size. We also had a plate of the chicken bites to start. Everything we ordered was 10/10, the waitstaff were very friendly and the perfect level of attentive (didn’t hover constantly, but we’re ready when you wanted to order another drink or ask a question). Unfortunately we would like to try other restaurants on the island, but I would happily go here every night for our whole trip. Total cost was 440 000 IDR for one starter, three mains, one cocktail and two beers

First good experience on Gili T was probably my favourite taco experience ever! Happy Hour half Price Tacos! I love tacos and the BBQ JERK CHICKEN was to die for, service was amazing and being our first time in the island the owners care and spent 10mins writing down things to do and even offered to help us get back to Lombok so we don’t miss our flight. These guys are awesome and it reflects in the restaurant. From the moment we got there until we left the vibe was awesome everyone was friendly and the music was perfect! Definitely recommend it as an essential part of your trip to Gili

Do yourself a favour and find 10-15 minutes to walk away from the hustle and bustle of the main beachfront areas of Gili Trawangan and you will find the BEST restaurant and Bar on the Island in Tiki Grove. I will warn you of two potential problems right up front. One: They are getting more popular so making a reservation (or being open to sit at the bar top if available) is recommended and TWO: Go early in your visit, because this place will have you coming back again and again! So what makes this place so special?? Well, that's easy... Everything!!! Let's start with The Food: As Vegan travelers, they have a few options... so we tried them all! The chips and salsa were great; salsa is made fresh and you NEED to try them with the Tiki Grove hot sauce, it is amazing (not too hot and super tasty). Next are the veggie Tacos (vegan without the cheese). Three delicious tacos again, only increased in flavour by the hot sauce and highly recommended as the flavours are phenomenal. For me, the real winner was the pineapple cashew stir fry. This dish was an absolute gem and reminded me of a dish my mom used to make when I was younger. The sauce is super tasty and the mix of veggies, pineapple and cashews was absolutely delicious. I cannot speak for the rest of the menu, but if it is half as good as the veggie dishes (which reviews and full tables night after night seem to tell me) you will NOT be disappointed. Then there's also The Drinks: As Canadians, we enjoy our beverages, and Tiki Grove does not disappoint. Their extensive menu of beverages alongside the amazing specialty rum drinks, made it so we needed to come back a second night to try even more of them! My personal favorite had to be the Shark Bite (see photo of the amazing ceramic shark mug) with the Zombie being a close second. These unique drinks ( along with the half a dozen others) set Tiki Grove apart from so many other bars on the island and are an experience in themselves (order a shark bite and see what I mean ;) ) Next is the Ambiance: As soon as you walk into Tiki Grove, you are transported to somewhere different: somewhere you can let your shoulders down and just truly relax. With tikis all over alongside torches and all sorts of decorative accoutrements, the place just keeps you looking around for more neat things. Finally is the Staff: not only are you greeted at the door by staff, but staff are constantly only a few steps away, smiling and making sure you are happy or if they can help in any way. It is amazing to see so many lovely, smiling faces clearly enjoying their jobs and that is a big positive to Tiki Grove. If you get a chance, the owners Tommy and Catherine, two fellow Canadians, are usually bouncing from table to table, chatting with guests and I implore you to chat with them, ask any questions and commend them on the amazing job they have done in creating the best restaurant on Gili Trawangan!

Oh wow!!! Camandwhit you’ve put a massive smile on all of our faces here at Tiki Grove! It’s always immensely flattering when someone notices everything we’ve worked so hard to achieve, especially the smallest details, and decides to share their experience with other travelers and foodies! At the end of the day all we really want is for our guests to leave Tiki Grove with a smile on their faces! I’m so happy we achieved that with both of you! Thank you for the visit and we hope to see you again one day soon!

Cozy restaurant with sweet staff. The food was delicious, but I would recommend you order an extra sourcream or so, since at least the chicken-taco was a bit dry. Still tasted go tough, would recommend it!

I wish you would've said something to us while you were here. I would've been happy to replace the tacos as dryness has never been an issue before. But thank-you for the feedback as I can now make sure it isn't an issue again. I am glad you liked everything else and hope to have you back again!

We really enjoyed our meal here, from the staff to the ambiance and especially the food it was really good. Our favourites were the beef dumplings and the pulled chicken tacos our only issue was the unnecessary amount of bland cabbage they fill the tacos with. Even if it were picked cabbage it would have been better but nonetheless the food was delicious and would recommend.

Writing this as a bit of a mexican critic myself, my girlfriend and myself very much enjoyed the food from tiki grove. though, they are not a "mexican restaurant" they do a bang up job of making delicious mexican cuisine on a small island that probably has a host of logistical issues. i loved the chorizo bites with charred pineapple, accompanied by the best pinacolada i was able to find on our short, short stay on the island. so glad that our one dinner on gili t was in the right place!

We walked here after our day trip snorkeling trip , had late lunch here around 3pm plus when they just opened for business , there’s happy hour discount for the tacos 🌮 during our visit , tacos shell was the flat bread type and not the crunchy type , we like the filling of the tacos , we had fish , chicken . Overall we like the vibe and ambience here , island beach theme . Owners Canada couples , they been here for 9 years and counting . Cute restaurant, music suits the atmosphere too .

Hi Kenkeh! Thank you so much for the glowing review! We love it when people like Tiki Grove enough to take the write about us! We do make all of our tacos with flour tortilla but we do have crispy corn tortilla available upon request as well if that’s someone’s preference or if they have dietary restrictions such as celiac or gluten intolerance. I’m glad we could get you in that day and we hope to see you again one day soon! -The Crew at Tiki Grove!

Best meal we had on our entire 6 week trip. Wow. Let me start by saying the Food is delicious, we had vegetarian tacos and dumplings and some super crispy fries. The service is amazing and definitely the best you'll get on the island by far! The owners are super cool and if you lucky enough to catch them for a chat it will make your experience that much cooler. We loved it so much we came back twice! We just had to have that meal once more before we left! Thank you Tiki Grove we will never forget you! See you soon hopefully. 😃😃😃

Just finished having Cajun tacos and a couple of cold beer at happy hour. Second time I’ve been here in the last few days. So one of those restaurants that you just keep coming back to. The atmosphere is fun and rustic, reminiscent of a set on Gilligan's island but without the cast of course (yes I’m an 80’s prodigy as are they). The food and drinks are fantastic and decently priced. The staff are attentive and efficient. To top it off, the owners Tommy and Kathryn (Canadians) are genuine, personable informative interesting and fun. Within 5 minutes, it’s evident that they put their all into their lovely restaurant because they care about what you’re served and how you’re served. They are without question good humans. And that’s hard to find in the service and hospitality industry without an angle. If you come to The island of Gilly T and you don’t take advantage of visiting this restaurant (at least once) you’re missing out big time. The Tiki Grill is one of the best restaurants in in the island that I’ve ever been to. Hands-down. FULL STOP! Don’t be dumb. Visit and walk away knowing that you had the best of the best on Gili T.

This hidden gem has the number 1 spot on Gili T for a reason: the food is superb and the staff are engaging and friendly at all times. We had the chicken and fish tacos as mains and the chicken bits with BBQ sauce as a starter and they did not disappoint! Special mention for Leanna (hopefully that is spelt correctly!) who was our waitress and made the experience even better. Would highly recommend here if you are visiting Gili T.
