Humuhumu’s description

The Leilani no longer has any tiki whatsoever, and is just an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet. The building looks more Asian than straight Polynesian, but there is a beautiful palm tree neon sign, almost identical to the one that stood in front of the Lanai

The Leilani used to serve drinks in tiki mugs with both its name and Luau inscribed on the back (and used at both restaurants): a black moai, and a three-face bucket mug.

The Leilani is long gone. The restaurant was gutted years ago and the gorgeous neon palm tree sign was painted black for a while before finally being removed altogether. The place is a Vietnamese (?) restaurant now and not even called The Leilani.
