We went for the lunch buffet and it was terrible. I bit into 2 separate pieces of sweet and sour chicken and there was NO chicken in the breading. There was a brown sauced chicken (no name placard on buffet station) that was so tough I couldn't even chew it. Everything was sooo dry and tasted like it was left... More

I saw the sign for Ocean Seafood but somehow confused it with the Thai restaurant a few steps away. Do not be discouraged, it is simply down a little hallway of a strip mall. The inside is very large, I cannot imagine ever having trouble getting a table. I ate here twice, takeout both times. I ordered the wonton soup... More

Had a nice family dinner. Food off the menu is excellent; food from the buffet needs work. Seafood and wonton soups are excellent. Pepper fish, garlic ribs were spicy - really tasty. Chicken was excellent and well cooked. Bok choy and fried rice were yummy too. Nothing from the buffet to recommend. We went for 5pm and were seated immediately.... More

I have never raved about Chinese food until I was invited to go to Oceans Seafood Chinese Restaurant with a group of friends. The food was great and the experience was fun. Everyone ordered a different dish and each was placed on a turn tray in the center which was rotated around so everyone could eat or try each dish.... More

We arrived in Kona Christmas day and were all starving. We went to the restaurant attached to our hotel only to find a 90 minute wait! We googled for Chinese and found Ocean Seafood, and they were able to seat our party of 12 right away! It was a bit challenging finding this place in the tucked away strip mall,... More

We have visited Kailua-Kona previously and have eaten here before. This trip we had the buffet, which was ok, but not great. There was no seafood offered except if you ordered from the menu. Also, it was quite warm outside for October in Hawaii, and they did not have air-conditioning. The fans they had placed around the rooms helped. The... More

We went to this restaurant on a review we read. We must have gone on one of its down days. We walked in and were shown to a table and directed to the buffet - they did not offer a menu. We went to the buffet - it was terrible, the Orange Chicken were little hard rocks in an Orange... More

This was the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever been to. Very limited selection and badly prepared. The only seafood on the buffet was a shrimp dish. I never eat the chicken wings at Chinese buffets, but I found that was about the only thing edible. That and some lettuce and the fried biscuit they call donuts. Very dingy and... More

Go early when they just put out the Buffet. The Eggplant is awesome, but lots of choices for those picky eaters
