About Lun Wah Restaurant and Tiki Bar
There are reasons why the Lun Wah Restaurant has been in business since 1974. Those reasons become quite apparent almost immediately upon entering the restaurant. You forget, for a moment, you're in NJ and are quickly taken away to the scenic atmosphere of the beautiful Polynesian Islands. The Hawaiian feel and tone is captured perfectly by the Lun Wah's decor, consisting
of real bamboo which layers the walls, lovely pictures of the Islands, and a beautiful rock running waterfall in which water falls into a pond below. There is a bamboo bar with hanging colored blowfish lamps, which serves the best drinks in town, waiters greet you donning colorful Hawaiian shirts creating the ambience and setting of an evening in Polynesian paradise.

Lun Wah Restaurant and Tiki Bar Ratings and Reviews
Love the Lun Wah for the atmosphere, prices & drinks (they don't skimp). This particular time I was a bit put off because I think they should have had more staff working. They only had one side open & they had a lot of people & things took longer than they should have because of that. I even had to cancel a cocktail (not the server's fault). But if you're looking for a bit of Polynesian fun (who can resist the colored blowfish above the bar & the tiki huts), go!
It's been a while since I've been here but it's like stepping back in time. The ambiance is tropical and the food is still excellent. The service is great and our waitperson "B" was fantastic. Coming here after all these years brought back some nice memories. If you have never been here I ask " What are you waiting for?" I definitely won't wait long to come back again.
We went for New Year's Eve, a very popular night for Lun Wah, which serves delicious Chinese cuisine in a place loaded with Polynesian decor. We made sure we made reservations. We waited less than ten minutes for our booth. The place was jammed with early revelers (our reservations were at 7:30), but our waiter was attentive and quick. The specialty drinks are incredibly tasty - and strong. The vegetable dumplings were well-prepared and full of filling. We each tried a different dish and shared. All were tasty, with generous portions of meat and/or seafood, vegetables, and delicious sauces. The green tea ice cream was a great finish. I recommend this place to anyone who enjoys well-prepared Chinese food.
The food was decent, except for the roast pork fried rice. Tasted like it had been sitting for days. Very dry and tasteless. The server brought the wrong food to our table the first time, but quickly corrected that. She was very pleasant, but was distracted by the people next to us. The most disappointing part was that the couple next to us has frequent visitors from the bar. For almost the entire meal, this rather large woman, was standing in the aisle with her rear end pointing at me. I was going to say something, but looking at this group decided that it might not be the best course to take. Bottom line is I will never return to this restaurant. The manager/owners need to be more attentive to what is going on at their establishment.
Had a nice meal in this strip mall Polynesian themed restaurant/tiki bar. Food was tasty and the service was attentive. The decor takes you to another land and makes it a fun experience. I was told that Thursday night is Karaoke night and judging by the Friday night bar scene it probably is a fun time. Definitely is a local favorite because it seemed that the wait staff knew everyone except for me by their first name. Don't let the exterior turn you away. It's a strip mall and it's a little dated but once inside I don't think you'll be disappointed.
We went there for dinner and it was a good experience. The drinks were great and inventive. The staff was fantastic, very friendly, water always filled. The food was good, the dish I ordered had the duck fried ( which I did not know) otherwise it tasted good.
I ate here once with a bunch of friends. We were extremely hungry and wanted a quick bite and we came upon this gem on opentable. This place was great, the menu was great. We did family style dinner and it was delicious. The portions were big and we couldn't finish all the food. It was a fun time.
The place was great! Food was excellent and ambiance was awesome. The not so great part was definitely our waiter. He was rude and standoffish which doesn't bother me too much, you want to be rude have fun, but don't expect a 20% tip. He seemed frustrated that we wanted to box up the rest of our appetizer and at the end of the meal it took him roughly 20 minutes to come over and wrap our food and give is the bill. I will definitely be returning and just hoping I don't have the same waiter. Definitely recommend it for families and those with big appetites since the portions are huge!
Great local place in Roselle for excellent Chinese and Polynesian food. Very Hawaiianesque type place. The Grand Mariner shrimp was outstanding! We got a pu pu platter for 4 which was very good. The Mai Tai's and Blue Hawaiian drinks were tasty. They do take out as well. Highly suggest you check this place out if you are looking for a fun night on with friends.
Take a trip down memory lane for a place that time forgot. I have been coming here since I was a child and not much has changed. Tiki Bar, Godfish Pond, friendly service and excellant food. The spare ribs are some of the best I have ever had. Family atmosphere, nice quiet bar, and nice portions of fresh and well prepared food.
Not your average fast food Asian Restaurant or meal. The choices range from Filet Mongon to typical chicken wings. The food and taste is well above the average fast places. Nice for family or a date night since there is a jungle like feel in the restaurant for cozy and intimate conversations.
Lun Wah is decorated magnificently in a tiki style! Bamboo, tikis and seashells make this a fun, kitschy place to eat! There's pufferfish lamps over the bar too. The food is good, the drinks disappointing but overall worth a visit if you're into all things tiki.
Went here to celebrate my daughter's graduation. I have heard from friends that they loved the place and recommended it. When we got there it was dark, tired looking and for lack of a better word "sticky". The food was okay, our regular take out place is better. The service was very good.
