I got the name of this little place from the concierge at my hotel, and decided to try it out while walking around Honolulu's China Town. It is located on Smith Street on the edge of Chinatown. Another recommended restaurant is virtually next door, the Happy Belly.
I arrived about 12:45 on a Wednesday and the place was packed. I only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. The hostess was very friendly and seated us quickly. The waitress explained the daily specials and brought water to the table. I chose the spicy garlic shrimp entrée which came on a bed of shredded cabbage with a side of either white or brown rice. The portion was quite large (about 14 very large shrimp). The name is appropriate, as this was quite spicy and flavorful. A friend had the honey walnut shrimp which is a house specialty and it was also very delicious, or should I say ono since this is Hawaii.
The menu is extensive with a wide variety of choices including seafood, pork, chicken, and vegetable dishes and daily specials such as oxtail hot pot and some dishes that I didn't recognize but local people were ordering and seemed to enjoy.
They, of course, also have traditional Chinese soups, spring rolls lettuce rolls, etc.
The entrees range in price from about $10 to about $21, and the portions are more than enough for a full meal with leftovers to take home.
Try this place out if you are ever in Honolulu's China Town. And take some time to wander around the markets. You will see bargains on everything from fresh fish and meats, produce, spices, herbs, jewelry, fresh leis and flowers, and some pretty weird stuff like pig heads, chicken feet, and some things I couldn't even identify, but I know they were animal parts.
