This review is only for the combination lunch. The restaurant was very clean, there was plenty of parking, the service was fast and the food was great. The price was about $20.00 for two and included combination plates with three items and hot tea to drink.

Stick with the crab rolls. Everything else is cheaply and sloppily slapped together, and overpriced. And even the crabrolls take FOREVER to come out.

I actually couldn't believe that any Chinese restaurant could be that bad. We were in Hilo for eleven days, and this place stands out as the worst meal of our trip. We ordered several pork dishes and they were nearly all fat and gristle and completely inedible. The gravy on the noodles tasted like it came out of a package.... More
