Good Chinese Food

We've been there several times and the food has always been good. My husband loves the Cold Ginger Chicken n l love the NOODLES, great chow mein! Not the BEST Chinese food I've had, but not shabby for sure!!!

This place has plenty of room for you and a family gathering to enjoy your meal. They also have a lunch buffet that is affordable and quick if you are in a hurry.

Setchwan eggplant tasted more cantonese, lack spicing. Lemon chicken OK. Good value with a nice soup and egg roll. There are probably better lunch options in town.

We chose the $24.95 dinner for 3 but was enough for 3! Didnt want the soup starter so they gave us and extra spring roll, these were not small either. Mongolian beef and chicken with veges, steamed rice, green tea , all good. Staff courteous and friendly, good choice for eating.

Though a small town, Waimea on Hawaii island features a real restaurant for Chinese cuisine. This restaurant offers an impressive menu. Still, the chef cooked up a special dish that was not on the menu, which was appreciated. The wide selection of traditional dishes are found only in Hawaii. This is the kind of authentic Chinese cuisine locals would expect.... More

After reading reviews, we chose the Jade Palace for dinner. I ordered cashew chicken. The food was barely warm with very few pieces of chicken and slimey bok choy. My friend had orange chicken which was also cold and very dry. Even the rice was cold. Everything was overcooked. This was the worst Chinese food we have ever had. We... More

This restaurant has very good food. They have a lunch buffet all you can eat for around $10. I come here and get a take out plate from their buffet and can eat lunch for two days. They are located in the KTA shopping center in Waimea.

We got a really substantially sized and pleasant tasting Chinese meal for each of us at just on fifty dollars and it was facilitated by very polite and helpful and friendly owners of the business. A nice place to go and good overall value. If you can get there try it, I would say.

We dinned here on a Monday night are were pleasantly surprised to find that the meals were of a good size and were reasonably priced. If you are looking for a good, honest Chinese restaurant to eat at then this the place to go.
