Humuhumu’s description

Mt. Fuji Inn opened in 1967, and was Omaha's first Japanese restaurant; the cuisine on offer actually spans from Japanese to Cantonese to American. Polynesian cocktails are available from the restaurant's Mai Tai Lounge, and once were served in customized Mt. Fuji Inn moai tiki mugs.
The main restaurant is unremarkable, but the downstairs Mai Tai Lounge is apparently mostly untouched from its initial late-'60s development. It is lit dimly with resin-and-bamboo and beachcomber lamps, bamboo hanging over the bar, and orange vinyl chairs. There are a few tiki touches including tiki doorpulls, and a tall tiki pole at the entrance to the lounge.
There has been talk of the Mt. Fuji Inn closing over the past few years, but as of 2009, it is still operating.

Mount Fuji and the Mai Tai Lounge were put up for sale a couple weeks ago. The restaurant has been closed for a couple years now but the lounge was still open until the sale announcement. Now the lounge is closed as well.

Visited on Friday evening in May 2016. Restaurant upstairs closed, but Mai Tai Lounge is still going strong. Dimly lit complete with outdated decor. That's part of the fun. Nice folks and great Mai Tais. A visit to Omaha by a tikiphile without stopping here is a wasted visit to Omaha.

Only open Tuesday through Saturday. Restaurant only open for private functions. I was in Omaha on a Monday. I don't know why some folks feel like hey can take Mondays. I have to work on Monday. So should you
