Humuhumu’s description

Hu Ke Lau is reported to be a little light on true tiki details, but they do offer a rare custom mug, and a rather long Polynesian floor show.
This restaurant once had a sister Hu Ke Lau location in Lenox, Massachusetts, which since the 1970s has been called Luau Hale

Family of ours were just telling us about this joint a few days prior and we happened to stop to get gas at a random exit and lo and behold there stood the Hu Ke Lau. The building could definitely be more significantly designed from the outside, as it stands it could be anything from a bowling alley to a family rec center, but it definitely stands out as something different. Inside is pretty well decorated, lots of bamboo, multiple fish tanks, tiki-esque decor everywhere. The bar didn't seem like anything special, playing classic rock and showing ESPN, but the dining area was solid with little distraction of the outside world and traditional Hawaiian music playing. I would've preferred it be a little darker but we were there for lunch so maybe they turn it down at night. Food was standard Americanized Chinese food but it was pretty good, well priced, and the portions were good sized. The drinks were mostly mix based and didn't really pack any punch but they weren't bad. Service was great and I would be happy to visit again. My biggest disappointment was that there were none of the amazing branded mugs. They had a coconut that had a screen printed logo but that was it. Overall, it was a great time and we are looking into visiting again and checking out the shows they put on!

Really nice decor inside.
I wished they would "Tikify" the outside a bit.
Fairly good American style Chinese food.
Good drinks, but, unfortunately, they didn't have Branded tiki mugs when we were there ... :-(

We found this place in 2015 and it's mid-century cheesy and delightful. It's basically a giant Chinese restaurant, with rooms themed in bamboo and tiki gods. There's a regular bar and a stage/dance floor, too, but we didn't do those.

Food: Good, not exceptional. Standard Chinese food.
Drinks: Good, with some unusual selections. Nothing "craft" but not bad for a Chinese restaurant in Massachusetts ;)
Tiki Mugs: Custom to location, drinks served in, and purchasable! I have 2 different mugs from here (a moai and a coconut), from 2 different visits.
