Sometimes it's because the Chinese restaurant calls their bar a tiki bar.

Such as China Inn in San Diego (Pacific Beach). They use mugs that can be found in tiki and Asian restaurants.

Our Bar:
The Tiki bar at China Inn boasts full bar service including many beer selections as well as wine and spirits. Specialty drinks here are favorites as well. Enjoy Polynesian drinks like the Mai-Tai or the rum, gin and brandy flavored Scorpion. For brave souls, the Suffering Bastard is not to be missed. A popular China Inn specialty is the Volcano, a rum-based drink that is large enough to share with friends and will make your visit here unforgettable.

Fong's Pizza in Des Moines, IA is a Chinese/Italian fusion restaurant and they serve tiki drink's. Their signature mug is definitely Asian in style, but cool. Unfortunately Fong's has been closed since November due to a flood. Look at the their drink prices! Half of what we pay in Los Angeles. fongspizza.com/menu/tiki


Then there is Wang's in San Diego and their Derek Yaniger designed and Tiki Farm produced Fu Manchu. You can buy the mug on the Wang's website.

The Good Luck Bar in Los Angeles has an over the top kitschy Oriental theme and it serves tiki drinks in themed ceramic mugs.
