Nice Chinese Food!

We had spent the entire day shopping. We wanted something local. We sat in a queue opposite our hotel and then realised they didn't let people in groups. We then decided to try the Chinese restaurant in the hotel we were staying. One Side of the restaurant seemed to be only for Asians, the other... read more

We had dinner here because of the previous reviews and wanting Chinese food. When we arrived, we were the only people in the dining room. There was a reason for this. Terrible food !! We ordered two meat dishes, one chicken and one shrimp. The chicken and shrimp dishes were okay, but the beef was uneatable. Most of the food... More

We found this by accident as we were actually intending to eat in the noodle bar across the street. But the queue was too long. It was a lovely restaurant and the staff were excellent. The food was delicious. Highly recommended.

We are so used of interesting, colourful chinese dishes in our restaurants in New Zealand that I found this food so bland. There were more wait staff than people in this huge plastic chinese restaurant. Not at all appealing. It was clean and efficient. Years ago chinese restaurants were the place to go - now with all the competition from... More

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

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
