ROACH in the dish!!!

ROACH in the dish!!! It should have no any star of rating because we have a diner tonight and there is a ROACH in the dish, we all shocked, and the owner(a middle-age, Cantonese man who has bald wearing glass) knows that he runs away, he should be charge in this case. Anyway, we put this and... read more

Thanks to our local hostess, we managed to find this place inside a shopping mall with plentiful free underground parking just off the Freeway @ Atlantic Blvd. as one of our other favorite cafe-diner 4 blocks away has relocated & now a BOA branch. Good choice of inexpensive items for lunch, dinner & late night supper, some specials advertised in... More

3.5 out of 5 We came here on a weeknight. The place was not crowded. It's relatively clean with access to a television no matter where you're seated. I was not expecting much from this place. But I have to say, I was very surprised at the food. It was very delicious! One dish that really stuck out was the... More

I was there in April 8th 2013. Not bad for price. Decent Chinese, better than Panda Express. Panda Express is not Chinese, I realize. Give green Island a try.

This place is branded as "Chinese fusion" place but you can have many traditional dishes. Only difference I noticed from traditional Chinese restaurant is they use less oil and display is really modernized with waiters wearing handfree headset to send order right away. There are several tables with TV attached, grill set attached too. Some standout dishes we tried are... More

When we ate the dinner the waitress keep cleaning the floor and make a lot of dust. I asked the waitress if she could wait us finish the dinner then clean the floor, the waitress ignored me and keep cleaning the floor. We had to wait a long time to place order. Because the waitress and waiter was watching the... More

We very much enjoyed our visit to Green Island. We selected it from the other restaurants in the mall from the previous review but chose different dishes--barbecued pork appetizer, fried rice with sirloin (came free as part of a deal), taro with duck, and sea cucumber. The last was recommended by the server as a favorite of older people for... More

All the dishes we ordered were very good. We had the Fish Filet w/Corn, Clams w/Basil Leaves (excellent!), Clams w/Black Bean Sauce (on the salty side), House Special Filet Mignon (delicious!), Frogs w/bitter melon, and Sauteed Frog w/Lemon Grass in XO Sauce. I'd recommend the House Special Filet and the Clams w/Basil Leaves. All-you-can-drink drinks, including Thai Ice Tea! Restaurant... More
