my awesome girlfriend who works near the Luau brought home a flyer for their sunday special which is:

Traditional Chinese Dinner $24.95 per person.

Pupus
choice of two:
egg roll, spare ribs, fire cracker shrimp or wagyo meatballs
Soup Of The Day

Entree
choice of:
Kung Pao Chicken, Broccoli Beef or Crispy Catfish Filet

Side Dishes
Mixed Vegetables
Choice of:
Vegetable Fried Rice or Steamed Rice

Dessert
Fortune Cookie and Almond Cookie


Then it states the bar opens at 6pm...why would they mention the bar hours???

I went on Saturday night at 6:30.

We were almost the first customers in the place, but it was filled when we finished. I noticed on walking in there is a bar with several stools, but unfortunately there is no bartender there. And there was no bartender there when we left. Why have a bar if you don't want people to drink there? And it's not very classic tiki bar of them to have no bar to sit at.

Decor: Lovely and elegant. I made a point of sitting near the wall of hands so I could see all the suspended puffer fish while I dined. I like many elements of the decor, but I don't get the hands so I didn't want a view of that, haha. But overall I liked it, and felt very comfortable.

Atmosphere: Vintage exotica music playing, if a little bit loud as we were the only people there at first. Lighting was pleasant if too bright (I always think it's too bright in restaurants, except for maybe at the Mai Kai).

Drinks: Sad to say they were not what I expected knowing that The Bum gave them the recipes. I had a Navy Grog (what else in Beverly Hills? TV R.I.P.) and a Jet Pilot. Both were watery and weak and seemed to be made of just Bacardi light instead of different rums. The color of them both was the same - light gold. Neither had a complex flavor but I could taste cinnamon in one of them. The friends I was dining with said the drinks were much better a few weeks ago. I'm afraid they aren't properly training the bartenders.

Food: Good to Very Good. My favorite was the tamarind glazed ribs appetizer. But for the prices, there is better food all over L.A.

Service: Very good.

I probably wouldn't go back soon because it's such a splurge, and the drinks were such a disappointment.

But people seem to like it because it was filled.

Sorry Ben, I am pretty picky (spoiled ).

I'm looking forward to the new LA Trader Vic's!

YOU CAN SIT AT THE BAR! I was just there tonight and found this out. You can also have food at the bar but if you just want on drink that is fine.

Check out this coupon for the Luau Beverly Hills which I received from opentable.com. It doesn't say non-transferable so I see no reason why someone else couldn't print this out and use it. For safety sake if you plan to use it you might want to call ahead and verify that the coupon is still valid. Hey, 50% off...that makes the restaurant only expensive instead of super expensive. peace.

Basically it all boils down to

If you don't like it,

"open your own perfect tiki bar."

( what's perfect?)

Ghee, guys, one would almost think you're taking this personal! One never should. Where is your famous sense of punk humor?
