Humuhumu’s description:
South Pacific had been serving Chinese food in a Polynesian environment for many decades, and the decor was still present when it closed in September 2012 upon the owners' retirement. There were several tiki poles, and carved details in the trim. The walls had painted tropical scenes, and a back room was decorated like a tropical hut. Shell lamps and other tiki-style lighting were used throughout. Drinks were served in tiki mugs.

As of June 2014, the space is still for lease, the sign remains standing out front, and the ultimate fate of the decor and murals remains a mystery.

Sadly, this place is now closed as of 9/12. Had good memories there. As they say: 'nothing is more in danger that at the point of its rediscovery'.
