Hawaii Restaurant on Dovercourt

lmm Sep 15, 2006 06:37 PM

Hey, has anyone ever been to the "Hawaii Restaurant" on Dovercourt just north of Bloor? It looks like it hasnt changed it's decor since the 60's or 70's, but looks interesting.

    I grew up on Concord Ave. a few blocks east of Dovercourt and the "Hawaii" restaurant has been there since I was born, no joke, nearly 40 years! LOL It used to be my grandfather's local watering hole. I however can't comment as I've never been inside.

      We were interested in investigating it more closely as well, so we stopped by for a drink. Not much to talk about really except that it did have original 60s decor and a pretty cool Coke dispenser at the bar. They don't serve food and the place smelled terribly of cabbages. There is nothing Hawaii about this place - the theme ends with the name on the front of the restaurant.

        I'm really in need of a Hawaiian restaurant in Toronto for research purposes, I’m an interior design student who’s planning a Hawaiian restaurant n part of my research process is to go to one, now this is the first I’ve seen of a restaurant, could you possible tell me the name and exact location.

          I don't know if you'll find it here. It's more Chinese if I recall correctly. Mind you I usually found myself in there with some mates after a pint or seven so my memory is what you might call hazy. Give it a whirl, buy the ticket, take the ride and let us know what it's like.
