"Polynesian"-style restaurants in Central NJ?

These were all the rage in the late '60s through the '70s (even into the early '80s). I remember that Matawan (NJ) had Steven Wong's "The Islanders" and there was "Lee's Hawaiian" up in Lyndhurst. Are there still any Polynesian restaurants in the know, the type that served mai-tai and flaming Kova Bowl drinks, had tables inside little straw "huts" and served dishes like Hawaiian steak.
