A typical Chinese restaurant with a coastal lobster flair. The food is very good & the prices are reasonable. We usually order the wonton soup with very tasty & delicate wontons & a Pupu Platter along with just one entree since the portions are very large.

Went for lunch and they had many lunch specials and serving size was very adequate. You will not be disappointed by their food. Chicken wings done right. Pork not overcooked. Fried rice moist, dark and filled with pork. Eat here!

The Restaurant is comfortable the bathrooms are clean. The food is fresh and hot when it comes to the table. I would say however the menus need to be wiped more and the condiments on the table should be wiped more often since you have Sweet and Sour sauce the drips and gets sticky from time to time. Just a suggestion. In the dead of winter this restaurant has held it own in this economy which should tell you how good the food is. We went on a Friday around 4:30 p.m there were at least 25 people when we left the place was filling up. The owners should be very proud to have such loyal customers.
