My Wife and I toured Beijing China in June of this year and found it fascinating. The people are generally friendly and helpful and most of the people laughed with us in helping us explain what we or they were talking about. Our personal experience with dining in China was that the Oceans Seafood Chinese Restaurant in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii is... More

Whether it's just the two of us or a crowd, always great food with excellent service. The buffet is an great value. We especially like the fresh dungeness crab in black bean sauce. Finger licking good!

The food is average for Chinese, but probably the best on this island. Not sure why the Big Island doesn't have better, guess we just don't have many Chinese here. Oahu has some great Chinese food. But if you need your fix and your on this island go here. Buffet is OK, but not cheap. Workers are friendly.

My teenage kids were fixated on trying an Asian restaurant in Hawaii (we're Chinese and I'm originally from NYC, so we know good Chinese food), hoping to find a gem in the rough. Oddly, there are very few Chinese restaurants in the Kona-Kailua area. If you're looking for standard Chinese dishes and fare, this place meets the bill. They go... More

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
