Makes a killer Mai Tai. Bartender gave us a buy-back after the first drink (asking if we wanted a "taste" and proceeded to mix us up two more!).
On Chinese New Year they had a dragon dance through the restaurant. Need to catch the Karaoke night.

This place has some really nice decor but could benefit greatly by dimming the lights. Also I would recommend calling ahead first to check if there's Karaoke (there was on Saturday night) because if you're in the mood for a romantic cocktail with that special someone the addition of a huge man in cargo shorts screaming along to Bell Biv Devoe could interfere with your plans.

So I made it to King Yum this past weekend. I went for the Friday Karaoke night, which was an interesting mix of Queens and Long Island locals. I could see some of the original tiki decor in the cool bar thatched roof, tikis, waterfall and bamboo seating areas and chairs. I wish they had kept more of the original tiki charm. But the drinks page did not disappoint. they had all the tradition favorites up front and each was served in a unique tiki glass. I had the Coco Loco and their King Yum special, both fun tiki drinks. I sang my fair share of Karaoke and then went off into the night. I would say if you are a tiki fanatic, then definitely worth coming to see King Yum. There are better, more original Tiki joints in New Jersey, but for an NYC spot with Karaoke, this still is on the list. I will give it 5 out of 10.
