This image evokes a Stardust of Spring showers. The Aku Aku is legendary, but perhaps you didn't know that the restaurant that was built and hand crafted by the big names in Tiki history was never seen? At the grand opening party, a kitchen fire went out of control and burned the original Aku Aku to the ground. All the main player were tired of the project and moved on. We may never know what the original place looked like. These ad images give a hint.
