This is kind of hole in the wall looking Chinese restaurant that has terrible décor, furniture and utensils. We thought it would taste quite authentic but it was only so-so. In fact, I think Panda Express actually taste better. Will not go back again.

We have been visiting this restaurant for approximately 10-12 years. Super consistent. Excellent. The Mu shoo app is awesome. Try the Char Siu with buns. I love the Szechuan eggplant with tofu, and my daughter loves the sal and pepper shrimp. Prices are great. Potions are huge. Staff is friendly and super conscientious. I adore this place!! Great value!!!

Good Chinese food here. Prices are affordable. Weekends and holidays can be packed. The parking can be tight. Weekdays are probably the easiest way to get a seat without waiting.

The food here is always superb! Service is friendly and quick (but not so fast that it leaves out flavor or presentation!). One of the best options here are the desserts, made, I understand, by the owner who has made a name for himself with outstanding sweet choices,not necessarily Chinese in origin but great ways to end a meal!

We were here for a wedding and this is where the rehearsal dinner was at. We had a number of dishes that came out and I would say that most were really salty. The honey walnut prawns had way too much batter on them. I don't know if they were running out of black pepper, but the waitress too ours... More

The last time I ate at the restaurant, it had become dingy, dirty and the wait staff had become extremely unpleasant. The food was still good, so I recommend that you have your Pah Ke's experience by taking it out. The menu is extensive and the food is tasty and the choices extensive. The "take out" experience is quick and... More

We've made it a habit to eat at Pah Ke whenever we stay in Kaneohe, and there's a good reason we keep coming back. It's got the flavor! I was skeptical about getting a tasty dish after the official lunch window had ended. Wouldn't the chef be on a break, even if the restaurant was open? I don't know who... More

We had dinner here during a long weekend. The place is very simple and unassuming; it was almost empty when we were there on Sunday night, but they were doing a vibrant take-out business. The menu is extensive and interesting, and the portions are large, but the quality is a bit uneven. The steamed dumplings were good, my Kung Pao... More

Pahkes is a unassuming restaurant with a fabulous menu. The quality of the food is wonderful, using as many locally sourced products as possible. My friends who visit from the mainland always make it the first stop for dinner! I love this place.
