Very different vibe from Hollywood location. Great food selection and taste...even the complimentary wontons (suggestion: order the pineapple fried rice with chicken and use the complimentary sauce with it...yum!) The drink menu is good and the taste quality great. Among the best service I've ever had at a tiki establishment. Limited selection on signatureugs but I did buy a T-shirt and a cd. Check the phone booth before you leave!

We had a great tour of the place (including the phonebooth and the hidden room). Great details and original tiki/Polynesian elements. We bought a souvenir mug and asked to buy a menu (by the amazing Shag). The waiter gave us one for free. (They sell those for 60 dollars on eBay, such a shame...)


My wife asked for a virgin cocktail, since she was driving. She had the best improvised drink ever. We love Palm Springs. And its Tonga Hut.
