The Tonga Room

The Tonga Room

Asian. For Tiki madness, a visit to San Francisco is not as experiential without a cocktail and appetizers at The Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar. Consistently awarded for serving 'San Francisco's Best Happy Hour' by San Francisco Magazine, The San Francisco Bay Guardian and most recently, Where Magazine, The Tonga Room offers exceptional Pacific Rim Asian Cuisine in a truly tropical setting that includes thunder, rainstorms and a floating band. This San Francisco restaurant, located in the Fairmont Hotel, is a Polynesian escape after a busy day of meetings or shopping along Union Square. Be sure to try the Mai Tai.

Lauded as the best happy hour in town complete with an indoor hurricane, the Tonga Room (950 Mason @ California), in the Fairmont Hotel, was calling. After wandering the hotel for 10 minutes trying to find the place, we entered true kitsch tiki style. The drinks were complete with slices of pineapple and umbrellas and $2.00 cheaper for happy hour, however they did seem to lack a little punch.
