“Good Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Located near the Chinese community center - right on the main bus line. It was very easy to find and extremely convenient. We tried many tradionial Chinese dishes and found them all very good. The Sea Bass was wonderful - the Peking Duck excellent - Also the sizzling pepercorn beef was great! Only downside - I'd say go during daylight - night time in china town is a bit disconcerning., especially since we travelled by bus - after dark there were many homeless sleeping in doorways and wandering - it did not feel safe - I was with a large group and felt ook - but definitely not where I would be alone at night.

“Dim sum at it's best!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We were told to do dim sum if in Chinatown, Honolulu. A friend brought us to Legend. It was my first experience with dim sum and really enjoyed the authenticity. I was amazed at the service and flavors. One can eat lightly or really chow-down. The final cost for 5 of us was so small and we sampled many choices. The dim sum "experts" with us gave it a "10".

“best cantonese chinese food in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This has always been the best dim-sum and cantonese diiner for our family.
Every dish is fresh from the kitchen and the favors are just right.
We had many special dinners with friends/family here.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

A group of us went there on our mopeds for dim sum. Food was average. Service was average. Price is average. Restaurant needs remodeling.

“good dim sum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Dim sum was very fresh, and they do push carts here (vs ordering off a menu). Especially enjoyed the scallop funn rolls (not available in our Chicago's Chinatown) and beef meatballs. Don't get the fried taro dumplings though (no flavor at all). The regular fried "football" dumplings were also too sticky. Overall, more expensive than what we're used to paying but good food. Also, they validate parking in their own lot but we had unknowingly parked in the municipal lot (reasonable cost of $3 for about 2 hours).
