I’m going to glaze over the irony that the dress code of this polynesian themed bar forbids shorts because once we were in the service was very friendly.
We had ended up here after a Foodie treasure hunt sponsored by My Kind of Phone, using our mobiles to take photos of various food related sights on the way from Covent Garden. A lot of fun that was too, but it was nice to finish with a canoe full of rum punch. Fruity and light this refreshing beverage was in sharp contrast with the Mai Tai’s which, while tasty were clearly extremely alcohol-heavy..!
Anyway, it’s a fantastic place, right by/underneath the Park Lane Hilton hotel with bamboo and woodcarvings covering every corner and setting the atmosphere wonderfully.
I hear this place has been going since the 60s and I can well believe it because of the attention to detail which doesn’t just settle in overnight – this place is pretty immersive.
The food we had was a selection of nibbles and it whet the appetite for more. Jucy ribs, delicious pork, prawns and some unidentified wonton – was it crab? was it cheese? who knew but some people were addicted..
