Disclaimer: I grew up eating this food occasionally, so I really enjoyed this little hole in the wall. It's not typically what some others might expect or enjoy, but if you're looking for an authentic "Asian-fusion" experience (and I mean that in the retro-sense, not in what restaurants are terming [snooty] Asian fusion these days), then keep an open mind and you'll enjoy the food! I'm not vouching for Chinese food authenticity, now.. I'm saying that if you look at the menu, it's really a reflection of the mixture of cultures (fusion) that has contributed to the diversity you find in Hawaii overall.
We arrived last Friday evening and were starving after a full day of traveling. I was craving something that would really get me in the mood for being on the island and on vacation; all I really wanted was plate lunch!
There is only covered outdoor seating and no restroom facilities on site (but within walking distance -10 yards or so- in the Kalama shopping area). If you're looking for "L&L"-style plate lunch (but without the "chain restaurant" feel), this place does the job. Kings BBQ & Chinese is located just across the street from Kalama Beach Park on one side, and across the other side of the street from Foodland market, on the north corner of the Kihei-Kalama Village Shopping area. This is a great place to eat after being at the beach all day -- flip flops, damp suit and all!
I ordered the Teriyaki regular size plate lunch and it was FABULOUS! I was looking for simple anyway, so was really pleased. A LARGE portion of thinly sliced meat, well-seasoned, over two large scoops of rice and a delicious scoop of macaroni salad! My hubby ordered the Mix Meat plate and was overwhelmed by how much food he got (beef ribs, Chicken Katsu, and Hamburger Steak). He wasn't crazy about the hamburger steak, tho'.
We ate here 3 times; twice for dinner and once to share the breakfast special mentioned by another reviewer below. Portugese sausage and spam, with eggs over rice... YUMMM... this was a TERRIFIC deal!
