Name:Tonga Hut Palm Springs
Type:restaurant
Street:254 N. Palm Canyon Drive
City:Palm Springs
State:CA
Zip:92262
country:USA
Phone:
Status:operational

Description:
Tonga Hut Palm Springs a combination restaurant/bar that is decorated in tiki/modern themes.

For over 55 years, the Tonga Hut has been a fixture in Los Angeles and the Palm Springs location has all of the Tonga Hut charm with a Palm Springs Modernism flair.

The restaurant serves classic Polynesian/Cantonese/American food, like you might have found at Don the Beachcomber in the Rat Pack days of old Palm Canyon Drive.

The drink list is an impressive mix of classic tiki cocktails and Tonga Hut originals. This place is a delight for Tonga Hut regulars and new adventurers alike. A welcome addition to Palm Springs.

I had dinner there Saturday night and it was a wonderful experience. Chef Sherman's menu is diverse and the food is excellent. Same goes for Marie's cocktail menu. The decor is classic Tiki and the service was attentive. Perfect place to take your Sweetie for Valentines Day <3

Amy and her team have done a great job

Tonga Hut in Palm Springs is Tiki-licious! Amazing artwork and attention to every detail from the floor to ceiling, inside and out.
This little bar is packed with hip tiki realness from the front door to the balcony. Special thanks to Eric for his contributions to this oasis in the desert.
Also, the Kirby map on the terrace is a must see!

I was fortunate enough to run into Amy on Tuesday just as she was about to drive to LA. What a great job you and your staff did on your new Tiki lounge. I loved everything about it. Gorgeous, absolutely stunning.i can't wait to come back.
Okole Maluna Amy,

I wanted to snap some but to do the AWESOME decor justice I would of had to of arranged for some time apart from normal business hours to get them. Amy and her crew have been MEGA-busy and I definitely don't have the sort of relationship w /her to even propose that sort of imposition on her and her staff.

I visited this place last Saturday night for the first time and had dinner there with my family and friends at 5:00. (in time for happy hour ) The food and drinks were awesome as I expected. I was also blown away by the service, equally as impressive. The entire staff was just great. Queen K (whom I do not know as I don't frequent many tiki events) even checked on us while walking by our table and even made a special juice tiki drink for my toddler daughter.

I was able to sneak out later that evening for a few more drinks and was glad I did. The Smokin Menehunes just happened to be playing that night! Catching their act in that setting was just out of sight. They were the perfect addition for that finely crafted tiki establishment.

Tonga Hut Palm Springs is doing it right 100%.

Thank you to the ownership, management, staff and collaborators.

Nick

We visited the Tonga Hut II two weeks ago. The drinks were great thanks to Marie King's instructed bar staff. Food was just ok and felt the quality needed to be better based upon the price point charged. Would agree with others service was very good. Lighting in the interior dinning area was way too dark. Realize the TH II has only be open a short time & wish them success at the new location.
