I've had lunch here several times with coworkers while working in Keaau the past 6 months. The food is usually good but the service is just average. Lunch prices are mid-range and for Keaau, this is an upper end, sit down restaurant. Most of the dishes are pretty good with a mix of Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and local style dishes.... More

Had dinner in a party of six. Food is excellent. It's a very busy place, so don't expect constant attention from your waiter, but this is Hawaii, so that is the norm anywhere on the Islands. Prices are not cheap but reasonable.

This is the best and tastiest bang for your buck in Keaau. The food is consistently delicious. The service is polite and the food comes out very quickly. It is family friendly and seems extremely popular with local folks of all kinds. I don' t mind that they mix the ethnicities in their menu, as long as they keep doing... More

We only got to eat here twice. They do LOTS of business---take-outs the whole time we were there. Sit at a table and order from the menu, and you can tell from the service that they're all business---two nice ladies managed the entire front: inside, outside, and take-out. The food comes when it's ready. It is SO GOOD!!! Don't miss... More

This is a little unassuming cafe in a strip shopping area in the center of the Kea'au Shopping Village. It has a buffet offering for lunch, but I always order off the menu. Favorite Thai dishes are offered, including Vietnamese and traditional Chinese. The decor is nothing to write about but you came for the food, right? HIGHLY RECOMMEND: Basil... More

We went here based on good recommendations, and had what all 4 of us uniformly considered to be the worst Thai food we have ever had. Perhaps it was because we were there on New Year's Eve, and perhaps the busboy was doing the cooking instead of their normal chef, but every single course was tasteless. I mean, how can... More

Good food. You can order your food from the menu and sit down or from the hot bar and take it to go. Everything is really good!

Nice Asian style food in Mountain view. There are tables but this restaurant is not fine dining. The menu contained enough variety and the service was pleasant and prompt. If you are hungry the Lemon Grass is worth checking out.

Hard to beat a place like this- great food, quick service (even when busy) & well priced. The portions are big, two of us ate more than enough & still had leftovers for breakfast. My only disappointment was I didn't try the place earlier on my holiday, would have gone back again for sure.

We've been here one week and have already eaten here twice, the food is so good. Yes, I know the waitress never smiles, but she kept the drinks full and the food was quick. Actually cheap for Hawaii. I'm looking forward to eating here again soon.
