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.

super crowded when we went for lunch on a sunday. the drinks are decent. tons of food selection but quality normal. didn't expect much on the food. tiki decoration was good. probably one of the classic tiki restaurants. tons of mugs for sale. they had their own exclusives.

Finally had a chance to visit. Went for lunch during the week and the clientele were local workers and people who have probably been coming here for decades! The mai tai was pretty good (fruit juices and rum) and packed a punch. Perhaps itís just me, but in my experience on the east coast mai tais are served in Chinese restaurants. Had a great selection of mugs in their store. I enjoyed it. Would love to go back on a weekend night. Someday.
