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.

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.

I've gone to a lot of Chinese restaurants in the USA and this is the gold standard. I could be biased, sure, I've eaten here since I was a wee little child. The eggrolls use bean sprouts (just the way I like them!), they don't but random stuff in the egg drop soup, and the breading is just right on... More

We usually get take out, but have eaten in the dining room. Its clean but has been around a while. Food is great, the Sweet and Sour Sauce has pineapple chunks and carrot slices and the chicken that comes with it isn't strange. Take out seems a bit faster than dining in.

They do a great deal of carry out so the dinning room is never overly crowded. The decor is a little out-dated but the food is G-O-O-D good. I especially like the pressed duck, and the almond chicken is also quite good. The rice is always cooked perfectly, and of course you get LARGE portions. If you've not been, then... More

They have great egg drop and chinese vegetable soup. Egg rolls are decent. The Mongolian Beef is the best, but the Almond chicken and chicken n broccoli are good as well.
