average on a good day

Average Polynesian and Chinese food in a so so atmosphere. It has been around for years but I think there are better choices in town. Not bad just not great.

Over the years, they have continued to decline. The drinks were okay. The food was bad. The General Tsos was hard to chew, way over cooked. My friend ordered a side of lo mein and they brought her a bowl of soup plain spaghetti noodles. The staff was a rare sight. Will definitely be our last visit.

Absolutely love the Teriyaki chicken and steak. The house dressing is wonderful. If you drink alcohol you must try the Volcano. It is the best drink I have ever had. And don't forget to get the pu-pu tray for your appetizer. You get to cook your on steak over an open flame. It taste good and it is fun to... More

When ever visiting family in Roanoke, a stop at Fiji for Sunday brunch is a must. Not much has changed since we started going there over 25 years ago. The food is good and there's something about the ambience that is inviting. Say Hi to Charlie.

Little had changed on the inside of the establishment. The menu has gotten smaller. A lot of the items which were on the menu have disappeared. It is... More

If you like fruity sweet drinks, perhaps you'll find something to enjoy here. The food is just awful- the chef is clearly just going through the motions of creating something that he can pass of as polynesian food. The m.o. is smothering apparently unfresh ingredients in suspect sauces. Even if you're just going for drinks, they use cheap mixers. It... More

Always enjoy this restaurant - the food is good and the drinks are excellent! Service is always good, too. The egg rolls are some of the best I've had.
