I chose the Kung Pao chicken. It tasted like it was fried a few hours earlier then reheated. Chicken was quite dried out. Would not go again.

We stopped by there for lunch. They were super quick and the food was delicious. The green sambal beef was really good and filling!

(This review is for Lemongrass Express in Waikoloa) After finding this place on Yelp, we ate lunch here almost every day. The ingredients are fresh and the food is cooked to order as you wait. The service is helpful and friendly and the menu innovative. The prices are reasonable for a resort area like this and a good value for... More

We thought the menu looked diverse. We all had something different but all our food was very very spicy which led to some stomach issues later. If I knew how spicy things were we would have gone elsewhere

We were watching the last act at the Waikoloa Ukulele Festival when I starting to plan where we would go to dinner. Since we were sitting right in front of this restaurant and since I was yearning for the opakapaka which was on their menu in January, eating here was a no-brainer. Before the music was over I sneaked back... More

Loved this place! The food was really good and plentiful. One of my favorite meals here. They were also so friendly-our son won't eat this type of food and they allowed him to come and bring his sub and drink in and eat with us. Very good food and nice people.

Probably the best food you will find for the price in Waikoloa. The food was on par with the restaurants in the mainland.

Went here for a quick lunch. Great food. Red curry is excellent. Don't let the food court atmosphere keep you from eating here. They have decent bar seating and some tables outside. Very high quality for quick service place.

The wife and I had low expectations - this place is in a dingy food court. We were greatly surprised.She was lame and got the Kung Pao Chicken. I got the Tuna Katsu with Kim Chi Fried Rice. I shouldn't have made fun of her for getting the Kung Pao Chicken. It was phenomenal, and redefines what Kung Pao Chicken... More
