Tiki Lau was opened in the early 1970s by Peter Yee. Tiki Lau offered standard Chinese fare and tropical drinks. There was a moai with light-up eyes over the entrance, a fountain in the entry, and a few tikis scattered throughout. The theming was a little more complete in the bar area, which was darker and had some bamboo. In early 2007 it was sold to new owners, who operated it under the name "The New Tiki" for a short time until it ultimately closed on September 27, 2008.
