Humuhumu’s description

Possibly a Chinese-gone-Polynesian restaurant, the same building still stands. Today it is Yasmeen's Indian Cuisine, and previously it was Marianne's, an Italian restaurant. No connection to the Jue's Market just down the street, which is owned by a different family.

Got a definite Opening and Closing Year from a 1992 L.A Times article: 1965-1980

"Goodby Yankee Clipper, hello Wellman Jue's Steak and Seafood Restaurant. During the last 25 years, many food establishments have come and gone from this lo cation.

Wellman Jue, who opened Paradise in 1965, has recently returned to the site from which he ran his restaurant until its closing in 1980. Instead of the Polynesian theme, he is now offering a traditional steak and seafood house. All food is cooked to the customer's order. Fish dishes can be fried, steamed, broiled or baked."

This building is now empty and available for lease. Interesting...
