Humuhumu’s description

The Royal Tahitian claimed to be the world's largest Polynesian restaurant, with 250 acres of tropical landscaping and "lagoons" -- however, this was simply a reference to the Ontario National Golf Course nextdoor. The main floor was the restaurant, with a bar downstairs, and a show area outside. It featured a dramatic asymmetrical swooping A-frame entrance.
In later years, after the Royal Tahitian closed, its building became the club house for the golf course. In 2003, the building was demolished.
Just down the street there is an unnamed apartment building

that once featured some large Milan Guanko tikis, and still retains some Polynesian influence.
