Great food at a very good price. Other than that not much positive things to say. ------------------

“Decent Chinese”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Service is awful awful awful unless you do take out. For some reason they are very nice on take out. Very very slow, unless you get take out. Sweet to my son, but he ordered a milkshake and it took 15 minutes to get. Food was oK. I don't remember much bc it took so long. Used a restaurant certificate. Will go back to use the rest. The Egg rolls were curry. That was good. Locals go there, but not sure why.

“REALLY LOCAL Chinese spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

O.K.,tourists (AKA visitors). Do NOT go here if you want to stay in your Waikiki comfort zone. This is a really local restaurant with local patrons. Casual, comfortable setting: you know, t-shirt, shorts and slippahs kine. Parking on the side, but small spaces so it's helpful for passengers to get out first before the driver parks the car. Some street parking is available. The food is really 'ono (tasty) with lots of vegetarian options. The waitress is always really helpful with suggestions of new dishes and doesn't hesitate to tell us when my family is too eager and ordering too much. Stand out this past visit was the Honey Walnut Shrimp. Light batter and glaze, crispy walnuts and tasty shrimp. Better than any that I've had at any other restaurant in Hawai'i and the mainland. The restaurant has its idiosyncracies, but that's the pleasure, and comfort, of eating in a local kine restaurant.

“Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Very good selection of food, some not found elsewhere and very tasty. Parking can be a little difficult to find. There is limited parking on the side which shares it with a bakery and photographer. Workers are always friendly and service is excellent. It's BYOB, but bring your own cups if you want glass cups. They even provide a complimentary little cup of almond float with fruit syrup topping after you are done which is not common for any restaurant.

“Fantastic Food-Even Better Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Won-Ton soup was huge more family style than individual portion and very good, I had the Chicken with Garlic Sauce and my wife had the Beef with Mushroom. Both dishes were large and excellent, we were not able to finish all of our meals an they happily boxed the rest for us. The service was very friendly and quick. All in All one very good dining experience.
