Humuhumu’s description:
This restaurant used to be a Hu Ke Lau, a sister location to the Hu Ke Lau in Chicopee, until the current owners bought it in the 1970s and rechristened it Luau Hale. Today, the traditional mix of Chinese food and faux Polynesian decor is in full effect, with elaborate painted murals, a scattering of tikis, and a dramatic pagoda right in the restaurant. By contrast, the exterior of the building is unassuming: a simple brick structure, with no windows. A menu of traditional tropical drinks is available, and are reportedly of high quality, and potent.

I have eaten at Luau Hale many times--one of its virtues is that it's among the very few Tiki/Polynesian places in the east that serves FOOD. The Polynesian dished are a little bland; the Chinese dishes are pretty good, but be sure to ask thm to hold the MSG! Its tikiness could be easily enhanced with a little extra effort, but I rather doubt that the local patrons are all that interested. It's unusally large banquet room has some great atmosphere with it's almost eerie "moonlight" effect. The windowless building adds to the "cave" sense of traditional tikis; it could be improved, as I suggest, with a little extra, inexpensive effort.
