One of the best Chinese restaurants I've eaten at. Try the ORANGE BEEF (not chicken) and the garlic spinach over cake noodles, the salt and pepper tofu and or shrimp. The lup cheong fried rice (some ono!) Great service! Oh and the wor won ton mein is extra special! And their Szechuan eggplant is the bomb! I have NEVER had... More

the food was really good! passing through to Kona, so didn't know where to go or what to expect. I had shrimp with vegetables; not excessive amount of food, but very tasty. Loved the crab filled ran goons (?) YUMM, soup was flavourful as well. My husband had Kung Pow chicken, which he said was really good, as well as... More

Just had lunch here on our way from Hilo To Waikiloa. This is a decent Chinese restaurant (surprise surprise!). Service was good, food was quick to arrive, prices are decent. Food was OK - nothing to write home about, but good and in large portions :-) For some reason, chopsticks were not offered and the kids were disappointed we did... More

Good, standard Chinese fare. (Not so common on the Big Island; especially at 8 pm....) Indoor seating.

The buffet is just $10.99! Great price for a reasonable layout of Chinese all time favorites. Situated right in the mall - lots of parking and it seems to attract the locals.

I have stopped here a few times now, when I work late to get something to go. I call ahead and its always ready. This last time we shared the special chow mein with shrimp and meats, good noodles and fresh vegys. It is a keeper. Thanks

Filthy table clothes should have been enough of a clue this was a bad restaurant. But we gave it a chance. One couple walked out as soon as they saw their food. We probably should've done the same. All the food seemed to be warmed up left overs from the buffet. Yuck! The broccoli seemed to be an afterthought to... More

Wished I had read Susie6505's review prior to taking a chance on this restaurant. There was one waitress running her tail off while the female owner was constantly pointing at her to complete various tasks. Had I visited the Ladies' room first, I would have insisted we leave - unfortunately, we had already placed our order when I had the... More

Shabby, slightly dirty, and drab Chinese restaurant in a strip mall. Food was inferior. Service OK but you would probably be better off trying the Thai or Italian joints next door in the strip mall if you are looking for a meal in Waimea. There are not many restaurant choices.
