This Chinese restaurant is located just off the lobby of the Aqua Wave Waikiki hotel on Kuhio Ave.. They start you off with a pot of hot green tea. The Beef & Broccoli was very good, as well as their Hot & Sour soup. But even better is their Sweet & Sour Chicken. This dish has too many onions for... More

My wife and I originally wanted to go to Fatty's Chinese Kitchen, but since that closed down we had to find an alternative. The cantonese style food isn't the best I have had, but pretty good. As others noted we were the only customers there at 7pm on a Saturday night. The service was uninspired although the food did arrive... More

So we have gone here a few times during our many trips to Waikiki...although the food is what you would expect....you know fried rice and specialty items are what they are in a Chinese joint...the take out portions were not too impressive....rice, beef and broccoli and sweet and sour port...30 bucks and well we weren't too happy...so if you go"...

We actually thought that the food was a little high priced, and the reviews about it being a large place is true. We were actually the only ones in there at the time we ate. If you are looking for somewhere a little quieter (considering all the hustle and bustle in Waikiki) this would be a good choice. It also... More

We did not enjoy our meal here. The place is quite large, with not a lot of clientele (this should have been our clue to hop out of there).......we decided to stay and order. The food is not bad, but not particularly good either. I wouldn't waste time at this restaurant when there are so many others that offer better... More

the food was low end Chinese, but still quite edible. It is hard to get good food in Hawaii so it is certainly no worse than any number of nearby options.

The WORST Chinese food I have EVER eaten. Extremely OVERPRICED. I ordered Chicken and Broccoli which was served in a small styrofoam box, chicken was dry and bland and NO RICE was included. Paid extra 💲 for vegetable fried rice that was absolutely disgusting and included NO veggies and was not even fried ! The calamari tasted like it was... More

The food was the worst ever. I've eaten in hundreds of Chinese restaurants and this one by far is the worst - I've eaten better dog in the military than the food they gave us. We promptly took the food back and they refused us a refund then went for a medical checkup to make sure we were not poisoned
