old fashion Chinese Restaurant

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

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

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

We eat at this Chinese restaurant regularly. We have always ordered off the menu and never eaten the "all you can eat buffet." The restaurant also have specials that are not on the menu and are delicious dishes. We typically order the Cold Ginger Chicken (on menu) which is as authentic Chinese as you can get. It is a very...

We were in a rush to eat so we could be on time to an event. I thought what better way than to order online and pick it up. I thought some items were a bit pricey, but what the heck. I ordered online and picked it up. When I arrived, the bill was 15% higher than the receipt indicated.... More

Found in a strip mall. The lunch buffet was crowded. Lots of selection, focus on the fried food. Veggies fresh, though, and plentiful. Food a bit on the salty side. Friendly nice service. Good value for the area.

We attended the Buffet Dinner and were first to arrive. Dish selection was good although not all was hot enough. Quality was quite good although wife rated it lower. Service was excellent and price reasonable.
