According to one postcard, the restaurant offered a mix of Cantonese specialties, Polynesian potables and exotic South Sea Drinks at the Tiki Bar. Patrons could dance and enjoy a late-night Tahitian floor show. The venue purportedly was a popular Miami haunt for entertainers Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra.
