Humuhumu’s description

Lee's Hawaiian Islander is a Chinese restaurant that opened in 1974. There are tiki masks mounted on rock-lined walls with a weeping water effect, an outrigger canoe hangs from the ceiling, and there is a special hut booth. An upper balcony holds more tables with bamboo framing. Drinks are served in mugs, and there is a flaming pu-pu platter. Mr. Lee can be found there often, happily playing host and greeting patrons.

I go from time to time as I'm local. The focus of the drinks is strength instead of being top shelf, old school. No one will EVER say they don;t taste the alcohol in their drink. The food is great, but I stick to the Chinese and Polynesian. I had a steak there once, and it wasn't great but maybe it was just a bad day. There are enough options on the menu to make up for it. Going there for karaoke is a blast, one of the waiters sings. Usually a good cross section of the neighborhood there having a good time.

DO NOT GO TO LEE'S Hawaiian in Lyndhurst!! This establishment supports racist patrons.
Just got home from spending $150 for a family dinner to be told "You're brown so sit down!" WTF. My 12 year old waited over an hour just to sing karaoke but the white family sitting next to the karaoke guy got to go several times. When we questioned that my daughter had to wait I was told "you're brown sit down..."
Then we were abused and told that we were gonna be beaten up by the white trash!
In addition when my daughter got to sing the white piece of crap said to my 12 year old "I'm not going to listen to you because your mother is a "Bi*ch." HE SAID THAT TO MY DAUGHTER!!!
DO NOT GO THERE unless you are white and then you are good.
Oh the best thing. We were told to leave while the white trash was allowed to stay because they were "drunk" That place is awful...please please please DO NOT GO THERE !!

The Pu Pu platter is legit, albeit no grill on the fire to heat the food , but all food was hot so no need to cook it. Shrimp toast and short ribs were REALLY good. Mai Tai was not the worst I have had, I have a feeling you could make specific ingredient requests. No garnish on the drinks FYI. The upstairs group or party room has awesome giant clam shells and seashell tapa lights. Water feature behind bar is super cool. I think this might also be a gay bar destination too, but that's fine too. Bar tender Dan was hilarious.
