Hm, I just found this review:

Quote:
Food not very good, very bland, to bright, no atmosphere.



So maybe don't get your hopes up too high.

Yeah - that review doesn't sound promising. Tiki is tough to find in NH based on my experience. Granite may have the most tikified place in the whole state.

guys - i went to utrecht art supply tonight, and on a bunch of the new line of drawing pads is a drawing of a BIGOL' TIKI! i'm taking it as an auspicious sign that this year, there shall be much tiki in the northeast. maybe we'll get lucky in RI and someone will open a real place. i would gladly spend the summer painting and carving to decorate.

I'm planning on checking out that restaurant on Sunday.

I'll bring my camera and cross my fingers.

Not sure what's up with the South Pacific Resteraunt. (its in the new Big Y plaza in Tolland on 195, luke). The sign is now down, and there is still no progress on the build out. Just a big empty building.
Th' Bargoyle



Bargoyle, I was at the the Big Y plaza today. There is a permanent sign up but the building is still empty with the exception of construction gear. The sign says "South Pacific" and has a lobster on one side and what appears to be Asian letters on the other side........ not too promising. Damn!

Hey Luke,

I stopped by the other night as well. I must say I'm disapointed with the direction it seems to be taking.

Next time you're nearby shoot me a pm. That big y is walking distance from my house/lounge....and the bar is always open.

Awesome! Thanks Bargoyle! As soon as I kick this sore throat/cold I'll take you up on that!
Wouldn't mind hooking up with the whole lot of ya at some point too! I've seen the pictures of the last outing, and it looked like you had a good time
Luke

hey, tomorrow (sunday) we are going to finally hit the Bali Hai. I know you all say the food isnt great, but I want to try it for myself.

We are coming down and going to IKEA and Sephora and then hitting the BH on the way back to Vacationland.

I bet we will be there around 7:00 if anyone wants to join us.

Darn, the timing is just off! I'll be driving by there because I'm playing in downtown Salem,MA from 6:00 - 9:00.

Have a great time! I assume they still have a couple styles of mugs for sale.

i didn't think this worth a post in "locating tiki," so i thought i'd mention it here...

chef ho's on federal hill here in providence has absolutely no tiki decor, but on the way out i noticed about 5 different standard mass-production mugs on the bar. next time i'll test the waters, so to speak.

Dang, I wish I had read this yesterday. I spent the night making Orgeat and Passion Fruit Syrup while tasting and comparing some new rums. I never even had the time to make a Mai Tai, though I certainly will tonight.

Next time you're in the area send me a PM... I haven't been to the Bali Hai in 10 years, though I did hit Kowloon about a year ago. Back when I lived in the area they were both regular stops. Along with the Pearl East in Lynn and the Lanai Island in Wakefield... Hey, I like Mai Tais...

Hi Scottes! Welcome to TC!

It was just the two of us last night at the Bali Hai, but we had a good time.
The food was better than I expected. In fact, the teriyaki beef was the best I had since I left Seattle.

and the $4 drinks were a deal! And QUITE strong!

They were willing to sell me a Bali Hai mug and a bisque crossed arms mug with their name on the back, but they wouldnt sell me the mug they brought my Suffering Bastard in. It is a modern design with no makers marks, but it has Bali Hai printed on the back. They said they don't have enough to sell.

In a way, I find it better than the Kowloon because it's not crowded, it's really sincere, and the food and drink were good. It doesnt have a lot of "tiki" other than the lamps and the murals, but it's a nice little joint.

The drinks at Bali Hai RULE especially for the price! I've never been dissapointed (or left without a buzz!)
Did they give you the old '70s era menu to look at? They did the last time I was there, but they had a lot of the stuff crossed out and re-priced.
My magazine printer is two exits past BH up in Peabody, so I'm up that way every other month and always stop in for a meal and few drinks.
