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.

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

Food had nasty taste in general. Put together very cheaply and it showed. Wine was served in extremely small glass, like a child's size at best. Very disappointed.
