Not fancy, ok buffet

We have visited Kailua-Kona previously and have eaten here before. This trip we had the buffet, which was ok, but not great. There was no seafood offered except if you ordered from the menu. Also, it was quite warm outside for October in Hawaii, and they did not have air-conditioning. The fans they... read more

I have never raved about Chinese food until I was invited to go to Oceans Seafood Chinese Restaurant with a group of friends. The food was great and the experience was fun. Everyone ordered a different dish and each was placed on a turn tray in the center which was rotated around so everyone could eat or try each dish.... More

We arrived in Kona Christmas day and were all starving. We went to the restaurant attached to our hotel only to find a 90 minute wait! We googled for Chinese and found Ocean Seafood, and they were able to seat our party of 12 right away! It was a bit challenging finding this place in the tucked away strip mall,... More

We went to this restaurant on a review we read. We must have gone on one of its down days. We walked in and were shown to a table and directed to the buffet - they did not offer a menu. We went to the buffet - it was terrible, the Orange Chicken were little hard rocks in an Orange... More

This was the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever been to. Very limited selection and badly prepared. The only seafood on the buffet was a shrimp dish. I never eat the chicken wings at Chinese buffets, but I found that was about the only thing edible. That and some lettuce and the fried biscuit they call donuts. Very dingy and... More

Go early when they just put out the Buffet. The Eggplant is awesome, but lots of choices for those picky eaters

The chef cooks authentic Chinese food. My benchmark beef broccoli was well done. The beef was tender. The $11 lunch buffet is really good value according to the Hawaiian standard.

Tried this restaurant per suggestion of “Big Island Revealed”. Found it in a strip mall. Did not hold high hopes, and the buffet did not look very appetizing (looked rather Americanized to me), so we just ordered from the menu. Some of them were surprisingly good, like walnut shrimp (which we only ordered for our kid, but it was done... More

The food here is good, fairly priced, and good service. You'll have a great view of the ocean at his open air establishment. Excellent menu with lots of local favorites, serving to tourists and locals, alike. There is free parking in the rear, but the driveway is narrow, so be sure not to pass it. I would recommend this place... More
