We had our anniversary dinner here on the balcony and the staff were very friendly and efficient and the food was enjoyable. Pricing was reasonable and it's a lovely environment. Try it out.

I love dim sum! This is the nicest placeI've ever had dim sum! No carts, but made fresh to order, and eating out on the balcony with our very attentive waiter was a lovely experience. I would have loved to have gone back for dinner, but never got a chance!

I am giving this place a 4, because of the great service we received. But the food was average. The Chinese food here is different from back home and of course Chinese food is always different in each state. They didn't have chicken fingers which I was surprised at and some other known dishes. But I was able to request... More

We ate here 2 years ago and were expecting another great Chinese dinner. We ordered the walnut shrimp which was good but not as much sauce as last time, the egg fu-yung was soggy and the sauce not as flavorful as I expected. The chow mein was okay. The best item we had were the dumplings which were twice the... More

I realize that a restaurant at a resort in Hawaii is going to be more expensive but I thought this was overpriced for what you got. Everything is al acarte so we had to order rice for all of our meals for an extra charge. The food was so so, that is probably why I think it was overpriced. When... More

We usually avoid resort restaurants, because they tend to have overpriced average (or worse) food. But we were attending a conference at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, and some of our colleagues wanted to go to the Kirin for lunch. Eight of us ordered a variety of items and everyone liked their choices, which included main dishes, dim sum and desserts.... More

My wife and I decided to try out this restaurant in the Hilton Waikoloa village. Big mistake. The dining room was very hot and stuff. All of the tables in the outside balcony was full (balcony was very small and couldn't accommodate many tables). Yes, we know prices are higher in Hawaii and higher still in a resort restaurant. The... More

Great assortments of dimsum. The noodle dishes are flavorful. Just greater wholesome Chinese Food. Ask for your waitress name MJ. She's very attentive and gives great service.

We got dinner here twice and ate it on the balcony of our room. It's nice to have variety to choose from at this resort.
