Favorite Chinese restaurant.

I`ve never eaten in at this place. I always get take out but the staff is friendly and the Sweet & Sour Chicken, Egg Rolls, Shrimp Fried Rice or Almond Chicken is really, really good.

Know the owners and have been a long time customer. I absolutely their food! I always get the sweet and sour chicken and they always make it taste divine! The crab Ragoons are awesome and always order quite a few orders. The best fried rice I've ever had. The ONLY place I go for Chinese food.

Their foods are cooked in animal bi-products, so impossible for vegetarians to eat there. It's dark and quite, so very private if that's what you are looking for.

We have never dined in. We always order carry out. One of our favorite dishes is sweet-and-sour chicken. The sauce is more of a pineapple base. The portions are large, great value.

Don't let the name fool you ... this is just another Chinese Restaurant. Menu is sit-down carry out. Nothing Fancy. Food is average ... salty and in some cases mushy. In spite of all this, service is good, price is right and location is easy to get to.

Yes a Flaming PuPu Platter a Polynesian treat loaded with egg rolls,ribs,shrimp,and crab rangoon that's on a rotating wooden platter topped with a fiery live fire cast iron pot that you can warm your goodies. The very best ever Hot n Sour soup make this a super place to eat at. Simply Amazing for 37 Years,,, great Food,, Low Prices... More

We have been going to Hawaiian Island for years. The food is very good, and large portions. The restaurant itself is clean, but needs a bit of a facelift. The waitresses are always good. Their soups are delicious. This is the only Chinese food restaurant we frequent downriver.
