We had a hard time to find cheap eats in Oahu since we have a big family. It happened that this restraurant is across street from walmart which we saw on our way. We went in for lunch specials. There are so many choices for lunch specials which costs 8 dollars for each order. The portions are good - dishes came in almost like the dinner size. And the flavor was very good too. We love it and came back next day for the lunch specials again. Unlike lunch specials in other restraurants, they serve lunch specials like dinner. They provided you a big bowl of daily soup, a big container of rice and then individual dishes for lunch specials came in. Great for sharing dishes among families.Highly recommended if you want to grab a quick and reasonably priced food in Oahu.

They had like a hundred different lunch choices for $8.00 !!

Shared the cod fillet and the salt/pepper prawns. Comes with soup & rice. And tea of course. Most Chinese restaurants have 1 page of lunch specials, if any. But this place had tons of items to choose from! Food was decent but they give you so much. And instead of giving each customer a bowl of soup, they brought a huge bowl of soup so we could help ourselves. We had at least 3 individual bowls of soup each.

I guess there's a lot of competition for restaurant customers in Honolulu. Prices are good and places aren't crowded. Definitely recommend this place. Parking can be a bear though. Its near a Walmart or a Sam's Club. Can't (legally) park in those lots. There is a validated parking lot for this restaurant but I missed it. Found parking in a commercial building across the street and ended up paying $12.50. Don't make this mistake!

I took my son on Sunday afternoon for the dim sum; but they don't serve dim sum anymore. I don't know if they only serve it during certain hours or days, but there was no dim sum on Sunday. We ordered the chicken chow fun and orange chicken. The chow fun was watery and had almost no taste. I would rather have it that way instead of too much salt. My son liked the food and we had left overs to take home. The service was fast and the place is clean. There seem to be lots of regulars and local people. I would go back to try some of the other dishes.

We just came back from Panda Cuisine and were very upset about the overpriced food which was mediocre at best and poor service. We ordered soup, steamed fish, vegetables and fried rice. Can you guess the order of the food we got? First, they served fried rice and vegetables. After 10 minutes, they served steamed fish and finally soup arrived after another 15 minutes. We complained about this and they agreed not to charge the cost of soup. We were shocked when we found out that they charged $79 for the steamed fish because the waiter said that the fish was $39 when we ordered. When we questioned about this, he meant that the fish was $39 per pound !! Again, we complained and they agreed to give us a discount of $10!!!! The problem is that a very few waiters speak good English and the quality of food & service went down sharply recently. We guessed that the owner changed. Our advice is" DO NOT TRY THIS RESTAURANT IF YOU ARE SANE."
