That is why the Kahiki Supper Club: A Polynesian Paradise in Columbus came to be written. My daughter, Elise, and I have previously collaborated on five books of local history. Tiki culture is a 20th-century theme used in Polynesian-style restaurants and clubs originally in the United States and then, to a lesser degree, around the world. Although inspired in part by Tiki carvings and mythology, the connection is loose and stylistic, being an American kitsch form and not a Polynesian fine art form.

Reviews about Kahiki Supper Club: A Polynesian Paradise in Columbus (American Palate) (7):
Tar
Used to go there as a kid. A surprisingly thorough history of the restaurant, including recipes for some of the dishes and drinks they served and a lot of photographs. If you had fond memories of the place, you're probably going to enjoy this quite a lot. Also a nice complement to a more general book, like the recent Tiki Pop from Taschen.

Even though I didn't grow up in Columbus, OH or even set foot in the place...I enjoyed this loving tribute to an iconic Tiki palace. I feel like I know the Kahiki, due to the excellent writings of the the authors, the many great photos, and so many memories shared. I especially love the section on Kahiki food and drinks...real recipes from the day. Every classic Tiki joint needs a book this good!!
Spilberg
Thorough, clear and absolutely unique. Generally an excellent book, on a very interesting and well-loved topic. Strongly recommended if you have any interest in Tiki culture, the restaurant business, central Ohio history, or just like a good story.

A really interesting and fun book about a once iconic and wonderful place. Though I was a bit young and at the time missed the tiki trend in the 50s and early 60s, this helps bring it back to life.
That it was located in that great, tropical and near paradise of Columbus, Ohio just goes to show how big the Tiki craze was back in the day!
Buy the book, make yourself a Zombie and take a trip back in time!
Enjoy!

I loved the restaurant and miss it dearly: the quiet village, the mystery girl, drinks to die for (and some were wicked deadly!). This book is a wonderful glimpse behind the scenes and into the history of one of Columbus' lost treasures. I can't wait to try out some of the included recipes (I'm looking at you Tahitian Mermaid). Your tiki collection is not complete without this book.

Finally, the long awaited history of the Kahiki Supper Club. As a lifelong resident of Columbus, Ohio, I can certainly attest the authors have returned to us our beloved Polynesian restaurant. The book provides plenty of detail; the concept of Kahiki, behind the scenes information, rare photos & diagrams. The authors provide a balanced perspective; waxing nostalgic and not holding back when there was trouble in paradise. In all, this is a book you will want to share as it reads like good friend telling a story you wouldn’t mind hearing a few times over.

Love the restaurant! Love the book!
Great keepsake!
Good read for Columbus, Ohio history.
