Name:Lum's Polynesian Restaurant
Type:restaurant
Street:914 Esquimalt Rd
City:Victoria, BC
State:
Zip:
country:Canada
Phone:(250)385-2322
Status:operational

Description:
Next to no tiki, except for several small wooden bowls, one shaped like a pineapple, adorning a wall. They had a wooden fork and spoon set, but they had no carvings on them. There were two tall barrels that had plants in them, they were pretty cool. Perfect for a tiki bar, the plants looked old....one was an 8' dracaena.

The food was typical Chinese, they mainly do take-out.

The waitress told me that the restaurant had been there for 40 years, and that the original owner is now 88. It has changed hands many times, but kept the same name.

She said that they switched over to Chinese food from what they 'used to serve' in 1980. They have a small bar, but now serve only beer and wine. She didn't know what it used to be like, but it sounded as if it was once much more exotic.

The place is small, and has no windows other than those at the front.(perfect for a tiki joint)

Thanks for the report Tikiwahine. When I was in Victoria last September I had hoped to visit Lum's, but it was closed for renovations. I'm glad to hear I didn't miss much...or did I? Maybe they get rid of all the tiki during renos? Shudder
