“Excellent value on good Asian food”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Although the Emerald Restaurant has been in Tonga for over 20 years as just a restaurant, it is now part of a new hotel, aptly named the Emerald Hotel. The restaurant in its new building is big, new and nice. The food, though, remains moderate in price and excellent, especially my favorite, fried noodles. The service is good though not exceptionally speedy. The prices are quite low for Tonga and especially considering the very nice dining room that is most of the ground floor of the new upmarket Emerald Hotel. Located in view of the ocean in the center of town right next to the decaying but landmark Dateline Hotel, it provides both walk in and take out food. Recommended if you like authentic Chinese food and good value in very nice surroundings.

“Excellent Chinese dishes”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

You are not going to be disappointed with any of the meals serve by this restaurant. Just be patient when ordering because the dishes may take a while to serve.
