Humuhumu’s description:
This short-lived restaurant opened in October 2008 and closed just a year later. There is no connection between this restaurant and Beverly Hills' famous The Luau, created by Steve Crane in the 1950s.

Rather than the nod to historic Polynesian Pop that the name choice might suggest, this upscale restaurant was sleek and more Asian than Polynesian in design. However, one historic aspect was there: the drink menu had some classic tiki drinks, and was developed with input from Beachbum Berry.

Our party of 10 from Vancouver Canada arrived at Luau for a Birthday Party on June 20th and had a blast! The formerly small portions seem to be gone and from all the oohs and ahhs everyone was very happy with their appys and main courses. I loved the Peking Duck potstickers! Of course the drinks rock! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The music roamed from Tiki to Electronica, but the atmosphere was 100% fun.

I visited this spot before they closed and not only did it not have any tiki vibe to speak of, it had rather boring design and decor...somewhere between corporate beach meets boring chinese restaurant...it's out of business and the tiki world is none the worse off...
