Roselle, New Jersey, United States
Lun Wah was a Chinese restaurant located in a nondescript strip mall, with Polynesian decor and tropical drinks served in tiki mugs. It became Lun Wah in 1974, and before that time it was called the Red Dragon. The restaurant had lots of bamboo and tapa cloth on the walls, and like most other tiki joints in this corner of the country, the few tikis looked like they were painted by a kindergartener. Other features of the decor included booths in bamboo huts, illuminated palm tree wall scenes, artificial palm trees throughout the restaurant and a koi pond with a functioning rock waterfall. The ceiling of the dining room was painted white unfortunately, but the dim lighting helped to make it feel cozy. The menu included a flaming pu-pu platter.
In 2013, Lun Wah was taken over by a new family who were going strong and keeping the tiki character intact, and making some upgrades.
However, Covid shutdowns and restrictions took their toll and they were forced to close permanently in February 2021.
