"Polynesian-style" restaurants in Central NJ area?

cozmikchuck | Jan 18, 2006 09:54 AM

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 state...you know, the type that served mai-tai and flaming Kova Bowl drinks, had tables inside little straw "huts" and served dishes like Hawaiian steak.
