“Good food, nasty people!”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

As a first time visitor to Maui I had to get some local food. I have to say the service was crap, all I got from the Chinese lady who served me was ATTITUDE! Anyway the food was ok, but due to the service I won't be back.

“Ono Kau Kau - Treating their help horribly!”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

The food was good.

BUT! The owners are Chinese, they hire other Chinese citizens for $3 an hour and work them 13-14 hours a day. No days off. They get them from the mainland and pretty much hold them hostage because they have no recourse and nowhere else to go! This is a rotten way to run a business. They treat their own with contempt and can get away with it. This is all the truth. Ask whomever is serving you (if the owners are not standing nearby).

If you set off a chain of events and let them know why you are not frequenting their establishment then maybe this can change. If you are on vacation and want a decent meal, their food is good.

But the waiter watched us eat like a hungry dog because they only feed them the cheap food. This is soooo wrong!

“good chinese food”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

I had the general's chicken and crab rangoon they were really good. Good sized portions. The place was small, but if you want a low key dining experience, this is it. Very nice people.
