A little disappointing as the service was poor. We had dinner which the food was ok but not a place I would consider returning. The dim sum was slightly better.

The dim sum here is at best very average. I've travelled the world and eaten dim sum (yum cha) all over the world and this is not like you would find in Hong Kong! I read some promising reviews that the dim sum was really good here just like Hong Kong, so I wanted to give it a try. I was disappointed in the quality and the service. Chinese restaurants all over the world have the most amazing service but you won't find it here. The restaurant was only 30% full and we had to wave furiously to get any attention.
The cutlery and cups were not clean. The decor is dated and had an unusual stale smell. The food doesn't have flavor you find in many Chinese restaurants.
The staff here speak little English so it's difficult to get answers to questions you may have about the menu.
I would avoid this place.

We were surprised to discover such a great place at the top of a mall in Hawaii. The entrance is impressive and we were immediately welcomed by friendly staff although most of them do not speak English. But the Captain came to the rescue and we had a wonderful assortment of Dim Sums as well as roasted duck. We ordered a chilled bottle of Chardonnay and some jasmine tea and had a wonderful lunch.

Very good selection of Dim Sum at reasonable prices. It is located in Ala Moana Shopping Center which makes it a convenient location. No carts, however, nice atmosphere and good/quick service.

Poor service
Not organized to keep buffet tables from running out of food
No tags near tin foil pans to tell food description of what was in pans.
Many had to wait for the Dinner dishes to finish being cleaned.
There was only Dim Sum small dishes to use until then.

Only one buffet table to serve everyone

Where were the food WARMERS. Other buffets have WARMERS.

first time here ... Last time ?????
