We've been here one week and have already eaten here twice, the food is so good. Yes, I know the waitress never smiles, but she kept the drinks full and the food was quick. Actually cheap for Hawaii. I'm looking forward to eating here again soon.

Best of the Asian style foods available right in this small area. Flavors are clean and neat. Eating area is adequate and family oriented. Service is for the most part friendly. Since I work nearby I frequent this establishment more often then the other Asian style restaurants simply because I like the food better.

Great for lunch take out. Being a vegetarian I like the garlic eggplant with noodles on the side. I live in Keaau so I stop in occasionally. My only complaint would be the servers are too casual with handling the food. I did walk out once when the gal dishing the food from the to go bar sneezed into the... More

This was our first meal in Hawaii. The food was plentiful and tasty and reasonable price. We took in a bottle of wine and there was corkage charge, drunk out of plastic cup which was OK.

Tucked away in the Kea'au shopping center right off the highway (turn left at the gears sculpture and then right into the strip mall), it's good food. While they're preparing your food, run into Foodland for some basic foodstuffs while exploring the Park.

The first and last time I will go here . The food was not fresh . The Mongolian beef was tough as leather and the Asian noodles tasted like Ramen noodles . We dined at sombats in hilo the night prior and it was A+ what a difference.

As a longtime visitor to this restaurant, as well as a foodie who has visited Thailand, etc. its understandable why people give this mixed reviews. It gets three stars from me because its fairly cheap, the portions are generous, I usually do takeout, and some of the dishes are good. I'm a sucker for their Volcano shrimp and their basil... More

Excellent place for lunch! Pass on the buffet and order from the menu. The tiny wait is worth it. Great Pad Thai and excellent curry. Ask for it hot if you please. Open early too...
