Restaurant details

It's really a small place with a counter seating 8 to 10 people plus 2 tables inside. Outside on a patio where more tables, but they where always closed. So if busy, it's eat in the food court or take home.
I had the ahi poke salad, was at the counter it looked and tasted terrific. Tried a few other dishes for lunch and all where good. Just remember it's open to a food court, no atmosphere just what you bring with you.

Reviews looked good so went to try it.
Typical food court Chinese food. Deep fried, greasy and so much breading you could hardly see any meat, just gobs of deep fried batter.
Lettuce wraps had grey chicken and did not even looked cooked.
Mall food....

Found this place at Queens marketplace and it's reasonably priced (for hawaii) and tasted good - the food is Asian fusion (if you are into that). The portion was good for lunch - the Thai ice tea was great for a hot afternoon too!

You don't go for the atmosphere; they are located in a food court and although their space looks nice, it's small and the food court is just sitting there. But the food was terrific; I had the red curry with chicken and papaya salad, both nicely spiced. (The red curry was a little like a soup, but the broth was terrific.) Food was fresh and served quickly. Service was nice and efficient. And they have beer. If you're looking for something good, fast, and (relatively--consider the area) inexpensive you won't do better this far from Kona.

I think this is actually called the Lemongrass Express and it is located in the food court of the Queen's Marketplace. With this location you might expect to find mediocre food but we thought the meal here was exceptional. My wife ordered the standard pad thai with shrimp. She thought it was better than most. I ordered the orange chicken. It was much better than the one served at the Panda Express in such that it was not as syrupy and was more flavorful with the orange and spices. They also have wine by the glass so we had a very nice dinner sitting at the counter and talking with staff. I also regret not ordering a special that night which was a whole opakapaka, one of my favorite island fish. I will return on my next visit to the Big Island.
