I grew up in Richmond, VA going to Tiki Tiki. It was the first take-out Chinese I ever knew. So, for the first 18 years of my life, my primary association with the word "tiki" = "Chinese food."

Are you the webmaster of southseascinema.org ?? That site is awesome !!

And actually was the Chin Tiki really that Chinesy, aside from being owned by the Chin family? From what I've seen in pictures, it looks like a full blown Tiki-style palace rather than a Chinese restaurant jumping on the bandwagon. I must say however their logo does vibe kinda Oriental...



But not quite the Tiki Chinaman as Bob Loos (was this actually a carved Tiki ??)...

I've always thought the Tiki Tiki in Richmond VA (which I have yet to visit) as the most deliberate combination of the 2 genres...



Edit - And I'm not suggesting the above is good style, just deliberate.
