Seeking Retro Tiki (Chef Shangri-La? new Trader Vics?)

Steve Sanders | Oct 15, 2007 02:21 PM

An old family favorite, Beyond the Reef on the southwest side, closed a few years ago, and I'd like to find an old-fashioned (i.e., 60s/70s-reeking) "Polynesian"/Tiki bar and restaurant in the Chicago area, one that serves Chinese food.

I've heard about Chef Shangri-La in North Riverside, but a few reviews I read on Yelp indicated bug/cleanliness issues. Has anyone on here had any experience with this place? Heard that Hala Kahiki in River Grove is fun, but they don't serve food, apparently.

Any other recommendations?

Also, any news on Trader Vic's supposedly reopening?
