Humuhumu’s description

The Reef is a new tropical restaurant in downtown Boise, with Latin, Caribbean and Polynesian cuisines mixed together, and furnishings from Indonesia. The restaurant has an outdoor patio, a stage, and reportedly--tikis.

My family and I visited on 6/24/18 on our way back from a week in Yellowstone. The entryway features a tiki and you go up the stairway that is stands guard over. Keep your eyes open for wall art as you travel up the stairs. They gave us a choice between patio and indoor dining, we chose the latter, of course.
The interior had plenty of bamboo in use and a thatch-roofed bar area. There is also wall-art throughout the main area including several pieces by Shag. Music was modern, club-style. I shared a Scorpion with my wife which was a bit sweet, had pineapple juice, rum and gin as the main components. It was ample and served in a traditional bowl complete with flames. My second drink was a Mai Tai which was overly sweet for my taste and used Torani with J. Wray.
We ordered the Mondo Pu Pu Platter which was enough for a meal for two. The crab rangoon was a bit different, but tasty. All of the other items were good as well.
Unfortunately, they do not offer any mugs or glassware for sale anymore, so I had to walk away empty-handed.

Stopped here for lunch (and a mai tai) on a road trip- a lovely oasis for weary travelers! Though there's sports screens, they were dwarfed by the bamboo-filled decor and good cheer from the staff.
