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. Mr. Lee can be found there often, happily playing host and greeting patrons.

Lyndhurst, New Jersey... Itís a city thatís a 45-minute train ride from downtown Manhattan. It has no claim to fame and I canít see anyone needing to or wanting to go thereóunless you want to check out this awesome Chinese/Tiki Bar!
Here's my full review of Lee's...

My most favorite restaurant in the whole universe. Mr and Mrs Lee are a dynamic duo that run this amazing and historic tiki restaurant. It has been in the family ever since the beginning and it is one word- perfect. The drinks are delightful and the food is stupendous. I love coming here on weekends. Lee'd Hawaiian Islander is the best! I want to track down the old photo postcard and matchbook for my collection.

So I think beyond Chan's, this is one of the best old school tiki joints in New Jersey. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the old school charm is all inside. Preserved cocktail bar with classic polynesian dishes await. Get a corner booth and grab a cocktail. Food is OK, but it was never about that. Ask for Mr. Lee, he still walks around the old joint saying hello to old school patrons.
