Hungry Lion closes

What made Hungry Lion a landmark was its banyan tree, which was planted in the 1870s by Chun Afong and is believed to be the oldest banyan in Hawai’i.

The restaurant was built around the tree, which towers above the building and extends upward through the dining area in an enclosed structure painted to look like the tree’s trunk.
