Humuhumu’s description

Restaurant Aloha opened in 1978. The wide restaurant had a narrow A-frame entrance; sometime between 2007 and 2011 the entrance was stripped of much of its tiki charm, but the bar at Aloha still had thatch and beachcomber lamps, and the restaurants still served flaming Pu Pu Platters and a "Flamme Tahitienne" in a volcano bowl. The restaurant closed in late 2014.

Got there for the first time tonight. The exterior has been renovated recently and now it's very generic. But it's winter time here in Quebec and stepping inside I really felt like I've been transported far away from the cold and the snow. The decor is simple but nice.The ceiling is completely covered with mesh. There's a very good looking rock wall. The bar and some tables have thatched roofs. And there's a great array of hanging lamps.

On the other hand, the place feels a little bare due to the lack of decorative objects. There's more tiki statue in my house (two) than the restaurant (zero).

The food was fun and tasted okay. The pupu platter was the best part of the meal. My thee year old son really liked it. After that, I had a decent «mongolian beef» served over vegetables in a sweet-and-not-really-sour-sauce. The menu is mostly "exotic". There's chinese food, polynesian chicken and beef, japanese, Korean, etc..

The drinks were just okay too. I had a «Flamme Thaïtienne» served in a nice volcano bowl but really low on alcohol. And the Zombie I ordered after that didn't feel right, though It came in a nice tiki mug. Let's just say bartending don't seem to be top notch.

Overall, we had a good time. The restaurant seems to be popular. There was a nice crowd inside and the vibe was good. But I'm not dying to go back.
