“Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

We found this place via our GPS after arriving in Lihue and waiting for our friends to fly in. It's conveniently located close to the airport. It was the lunch hour, and super busy. The service was still wonderful in spite of the crowded conditions, and our waitress was very friendly and accomodating. When lunch arrived, we were surprised by the large amount of food we received. My husband was happy! We ate the BBQ sampler plate, and Loco Moco. Both were delicious.
We stopped in again with our friends later in the week for dinner. This time we decided to try some of the Chinese Food on the menu. All of our choices were delicious, and such a fantastic price.

“Delicious food, clean, and economical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

Locals know a good deal, which is why so many eat here. The food is served hot, and the portions are generous. Sides of kim chee or mac salad. Even the hamburgers are good. We eat here several times during our annual vacations and are never disappointed. Try local: try this restaurant!

Great place to have a meal on Kauai without breaking the bank. Food was hot and lots of it. Service was good and the locals are there all the time. Not fancy just good. Place to go to fill up!

Had a craving for saimin and found this place in Lihue. Excellent BBQ chicken saimin and great plate lunches. Staff efficient and welcoming. Wish I could eat here every week.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

My wife and I have a funny tradition of eating Chinese food once where ever we travel since we like it so much. This was incredible food!!! The locals all come here and there is a reason why haha. The orange chicken was some of the best we have ever had! The portions are enormeous and the prices are great! This was a fav of ours!!
