Time Out says

Tiki-inspired bars are making their comeback in the city, and if you're looking for good sipping rums and tropical cocktails served in ceramic tiki mugs, head to Tai Hang's new watering hole, Maka Hiki Tropical Bar & Grill. This bar and restaurant is headed by restaurateur Maxence Traverse, the French mixologist who opened the city's first tiki cocktail lounge, Honi Honi. Maka Hiki is the contemporary cousin of Honi Honi, showcasing subdued Polynesian-themed decor and Max's 'tiki chic' concept inspired by his island experiences. The place is perfect for casual meetups with friends where you can enjoy thoughtful drinks (and some new renditions of Honi Honi's well-loved signature tipples) and delicious food crafted by chef Russell Doctrove inspired by flavours from the Caribbean, Polynesia, Indian Ocean, and Southeast Asia. For starters, sink your teeth into the moreish salmon crudo ($230) with yoghurt and a yuzu chilli dressing that easily melts in your mouth, before moving on to the mains with grilled mahi mahi curry ($265) and the Seychelles King Prawns ($320). Our favourite cocktails include the punchy Maka Hiki Punch ($180) made with a blend of overproof rum and Clément Première Canne, with Maraschino Liqueur, falernum, grapefruit and lemon juice, and The Dead Shaman ($160), a refreshing but strong drink made with Baijiu and a mix of falernum, exoctic fruit juices, and Sichuan pepper syrup. Make sure to book a seat at one of the two lush outdoor terraces, a hidden oasis that will transport you away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
