Packed on a Monday nite with local families and maybe a tourist or two, this is true local dining....nothing fancy with prices to match. We had sea bass with ginger, onions and snow peas along with garlic ong choy ( a Chinese green). What can one say? Other than delicious with huge portions. Service was friendly enough and in spite of the crowd quick and efficient.

Are you hungry? Don't have a lot of time to spare but still would like to sit down in an air condition environment? We'll then you've come to the right place! I come here quite often for lunch and let me tell you this place delivers some pretty exceptional "local" fare. The prices are spot on for the amount of food that is given the excellent service and the quality. Thanks for making our lunch experience a convenient and dependable one.

Before our respective flights out of Kauai, 7 of us got seats in a crowded, recommended BBQ place...not fancy...local and popular! Didn't want McD's...soon enough on that! Hubby had delish seafood stir fry on noodles! Oh my! Large and scrumptious!!
BBQ at first different than expected, but won us over!!

We had a 9:50 pm flight and arrived after 8 pm so we needed to eat quickly! The place was packed but they managed to seat us, take our order and serve, and have us out of there in great speed and with great attitude.

The food was the best we ate on the island of Kauai. Absolutely delicious

This restaurant offers quick service with very large portions of food. The orders have lots of fresh ingredients in them - such as vegetables, char sui (bbq pork), mushrooms, chicken, beef, etc. Had the War Won ton soup and beef cake noodle which were excellent choices for lunch. Plenty of parking on the side streets and it is easily reachable as it is in central Lihue. Definitely recommend Garden Island BBQ & Chinese Restaurant if you are in this neighborhood and hungry for a big meal! Also, very reasonable prices for the big portion orders!
