Great Tiki drinks!. Ok, I have to admit we went there to get a little tikiness and asked to be seated at the bar. At first we were disappointed as there was no bartender and no others in the bar. Nevertheless, we ordered a Tiki Tiki and a Zombie and were soon transported into a very good mood. The old photos on the wall, including the original owner in uniform, added to the tiki-ambiance. Another Tiki Tiki and Pina Colada later, conversing with a couple of guys picking up take-out (apparently most of the business that night) and enjoying a drink while waiting and watching Twins and a Pu Pu platter later, we were quite tikified. So, nice place, hope to eat more and drink a bit less next time (ok, I had a Fog Cutter too). LET's REVIVE that BAR SCENE folks! But drink sensibly of course...
Instead of carrying the torch for Chinese dining, the flame is flickering..
For over 20 years, a steady clientele have marched loyally into this dimly lit but classically pretty West End institution. An older more conservative crowd still shares egg rolls, shrimp fried rice and a paper umbrella'd Pina Colada on weekend nights. Neighborhood business owners and a busy takeout service keep the lunch hour lively.
Some traditionalists still label this the "best Chinese" in town, but I suspect it is more out of familiarity and friendly service than the actual food quality. "Tiki Favorites" are a better bet than the Polynesian Classics, which have very little island ambiance. Fuji Duck has saut?ed Chinese vegetables and Virginia ham; the Tiki Duck version comes with a sweet and sour sauce and what passes for tropical fruits. Again, pass on to one of their simplistic and conventional dishes.
above average. Good chinese at a reasonable price. Above the average for Richmond!
