Humuhumu’s description

Kowloon opened in 1950 as The Mandarin House. In 1958 the Wong family purchased it and changed the name to Kowloon. Over the years they have expanded the restaurant into a broad complex of rooms, and it now has room for 1,200 dining patrons. Several of the rooms have Polynesian theming, including the Tiki Lagoon Room and Luau Room. The restaurant has been a landmark in the north Boston area for decades, and photos of many celebrities visiting the restaurant are proudly displayed.
The food is traditional Chinese American fare, and includes a flaming pu pu platter. Tropical drinks are served in tiki mugs.

Ugh! Drinks are pre-made. The outside is cool - but not much tiki going on least in the bar area

Classic "Old School" Polynesian Restaurant. Still love to go as often as possible. They sell "Kowloon" Tiki Mugs so that's a plus!

Kowloon is about the closest thing to tiki we have near Boston, but it is barely tiki. Best thing about it is the sunken bar in the middle of the restaurant with a thatched roof. This is different from the bar near the entrace which is effectively a sports bar. There are no fresh fruit cocktails. The themed rooms are nice, but a little loud and bright. Asking the bartender to turn off the TV might get you in a fight with the local drunk.
