“Bang for your buck”
Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

Have ate here several times- it is great. You get a lot for the price- and price is a very important factor on Kauai- a majority of places are overpriced for average food. KCL is reasonable and very good food. BBQ plate is awesome. It is also great to support this mom m pop- owners are very nice

“Not sure how to rate this restaurant”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

The food was plentiful and cheap. My wife and I both ordered the loco moco special. Two beef patties, two fried eggs, two scoops of rice, one scoop of macaroni salad, and gravy. All for only $5.99. I thought it tasted great.....my wife didn't like it much. Friendly service. Really no complaints at all, except the bathrooms were very, very dirty. Dirty bathrooms are a huge red flag for me, so can't give KCL more than 3 stars, but I would give this place another try....especially if they cleaned up the place better - especially the bathrooms.

“Good food, good price, clean”
Reviewed September 23, 2011

Ahhhhh - Chicken eggplant and Chicken choy sum - yummmmmmmm!
Skin a bit tough on the eggplant, but 5.99 with rice and good kimchee ... the Chick shoy sum was made with no MSG and had FULL flavor! Excellent!
Old style Chinese Restaraunt decore, brings back my teenage years of Chinese food in San Francisco!

“Great food, service and value.”
Reviewed May 1, 2011

Landed in lihue at diiner time. Went to car rental and asked attendant, where as a local she would have dinner? KCL was her response and we were on our way. We love local food and bbq/ macaroni/rice did the job.
Food was quite good and ample. Service was great as provided by Kathy
(The owner). We now have been there many times and have never had a dish that dissapointed. All very good. Always a great value. Web wouold never be in lihue and not go to KCL.
