Street:Executive International Inn
I tried to win these two dinner and drink menus from the Polynesian World restaurant on ebay a while back and grabbed the images. From the menu graphics and fonts used, it was obviously a 1970s era place.
The back of the menu indicated that the restaurant was located at the Executive International Inn. I could find no info on this place.
The drink menu starts with the old-school Romance of Rum Story.
And uses the classic Mild, Medium, Strong and Large categories with a great variety of mugs.
Some interesting twists on the drink names
Aku Aku Coconut
The dinner menu with some nice graphics
Now here is an interesting little twist. I spotted this matchbook from a strange sounding place called La Coney Island that was also located in St. Louis. It used two of the same graphics from the menus.
Maybe someone out there knows a little more about this one?

Hey All! Came by to bump this back up.
Google now has a tour of the inside of India Palace. Lots of the original tiki architecture is still there.
Check it: Google View
It's still open, the food is good and it's totally worth seeing.

Ha! Pretty amazing, all the bones are still there. Looks like an Orchids of Hawaii job.
