We eat here about once a month and it actually was my favorite Chinese food place to eat. I asked my other half to eat here tonight. Now I get the "I told you so". What's wrong with this picture.... We order our good and the Chinese waitress trying to tell ME what to order So finally I go along... More

Holy mackeral! I'm not if it is the fact that I am from Seattle/Vancouver BC/San Francisco/Pacific Northwest where we have better Chinese food or if this place is as bad as it looks. We saw a $15.95 pp deal for the dinner buffet and decided our group of 13 would go have a decent meal. Besides the fact that the... More

Love those crispy chicken wings. The only place in town that has Mu-shu, Go figure... parking is a bit of a mess...

Have been coming here for years. Yes the dinner buffet is lukewarm and the quality of the meats is questionable but it fills you up, has a decent variety of choices and is affordable. Service is good especially for a short staffed Chinese restaurant. If you are not picky or expecting anything too nice...go for it. Otherwise stay away &... More

I need to agree with some of the previous entries. We have been here over the last several years but this year has been very different. We arrived and decided to try this place once again as we had good food and service in the past. Well this time it was different on two separate visits! Food was cold and... More

We arrived yesterday and had seen this place in a magazine we picked up in Honolulu while waiting for the inter-island plane. The advertised buffet was average at best. Several of the items were cold. Some of the meats were dry as well. Service was just about non-existent and got worse after a foursome arrived. We actually had ask for... More

You can order plates of food and feed a family of 5 for around $100, my family does this for special occasions! It's a great place to take a group because of the seating and they can split checks pretty easily. The salt & pepper fish is the best!

Went to this place after we arrived in Kona, was in walking distance from our hotel, Courtyard by Marriott. My wife wanted takeout. The staff was helpful in getting me what I wanted and even made half portion of fried rice. We had the ribs and crispy fried chicken wings with the rice. Was very good. Cooked fresh and hot.... More

It's a bit of Old Kailua. Restaurant has been there forever but under new ownership for the last 10 years or so. It's right on the waterfront along the seawall so ocean views are a definite. Decor is a bit of old Kona and probably not to the liking of those looking for super swanky place to eat. The Ahi... More

Do not eat here. Don't even step in the door. The fact that this place is still open is only testament to the complete dysfunction of the local food safety inspection regime. The kitchen cleanliness and food storage practices in this place are horrifyingly bad. You can bet that there have been vermin snacking on the food on your plate... More
