Lobster is $14.99! I would recommend reservations though, the restaurant is very busy but the staff are fast and efficient. All the dishes we tried were very good.

Every time we come to Honolulu we ha e to save one night to eat at Fook Yuen. They have the best Honey Walnut prawns, salt and pepper lobster and special fried rice. This is not a fancy place but always packed.

Wow I'm salivating as I type out this review. This place is great! You get to order a lobster for $15.99 per person, per main dish ordered. For eg, if you have 10 people and order 3 mains, you get to order 3 lobsters. But...More
