Humuhumu’s description

South Pacific had been serving Chinese food in a Polynesian environment for many decades, and the decor was still present when it closed in September 2012 upon the owners' retirement. There were several tiki poles, and carved details in the trim. The walls had painted tropical scenes, and a back room was decorated like a tropical hut. Shell lamps and other tiki-style lighting were used throughout. Drinks were served in tiki mugs.
The last sign of what once was, its lovely neon sign, was removed in May 2016.

Sadly, this place is now closed as of 9/12. Had good memories there. As they say: 'nothing is more in danger that at the point of its rediscovery'.
