We were eating at Tiki Niki right next door to this place... and the Chinese food was smelling soooo good. The next day we went for lunch and it was awesome! Maybe one of the nest chinese food meals I have ever had. I had the Black Pepper Beef with veggies, and my wife had the garlic sea bass. Both... More

Only eaten here once. Had red curry chicken with brown rice. Good flavor and heat. Nice mix of veggies and good amount of chicken. Service was good and friendly. Shares outdoor seating with Federico's and other food court tenants. Tables crowded at lunch time and lots of birds.

Since we had flown through the night and arrived in Princeville before noon, we were pretty hungry and needed something quick. I ordered the Chicken Pad Tai and while it satisfied my hunger, it was not even close to memorable. The lady at the counter was very nice, and as I said, the taste was decent, but if you are... More

So...we had been on the road a lot of the day, and we needed some quick take-out that had quality flavor. We were so pleasantly surprised with the two dishes we brought back to our condo/time share this evening. The yellow curry Chicken and the Duck dish were beyond just "ok take-out" ~ they were so wonderfully fresh (the carrots,... More

The main disappointment here was the lack of spice. Maybe this is my fault for not specifying that I wanted some spiciness, but the Chicken Pad Thai I ordered was very bland. Even adding some of the sriracha sauce didn't do much, and while I was happy to have a full stomach (they do have good sized portions!) the food... More

During our week in Princeville we ate here twice - once at the food court, and the second time we got take out. The wonton soup was ok but could have had more vegies and noodles. The second time we tried the chicken pad thai and beef in black bean sauce. Tasty and quite big portions (I keep saying this... More

The salt and pepper squid entree was easily the best dish. Didn't really like the coconut seafood special...Penang chicken was alright. We didn't have too many options being 8:50pm so glad to eat really....

If you are in the Princeville area of Kaua'i and starved as we were that night, this restaurant will satisfy your urge for excellent Chinese food which had the freshest fish as well. Reasonably priced as well. Recommended!

We did take out from this place. The location is amazing. If you are there in the evening, you can even sit outside and listen to live music. The food was pretty good and tasteful. For vegetarians, this is a must place to go to in Kauai. Lot of vegetarian options and others that can be customized. Highly recommended!!

So you're in Princeville, want Chinese, but don't feel like heading anywhere further out. This is your easy out. Average Chinese food like you can find in any mainland strip mall marked up to island prices. Nothing outstanding about the whole operation but Chinese food nonetheless. Entrees are $11+ and are suitable for feeding one person. The Cashew Chicken was... More
