If you want Chinese food, there are better places in the area. It looks the flashiest, and this is the place you hear about a lot, but as far as Chinese food goes, it's below average. The one thing I do enjoy is the egg...More

The food is fresh and very good. The portions are generous for the price you pay. It is not a fast food restaurant as each item is individually prepared. So either call ahead or enjoy the ambiance.

New Kahala is one of the best Chinese restaurants anywhere. The food is awesome, especially the mooshu pork. The one thing they need to improve is their plates and cutlery. No one wants to eat off of styrofoam plates with little flimsy forks.

New Kahala has some great food. Unfortunately they are in no hurry to serve it to you. Be prepared to wait 30 minutes or more for you order at most times. And don't order online...they aren't great at checking those orders...we've shown up to pick...More

Not so much to do with the food I know I like it. But I just saw one of the employees run to catch a customer in the parking lot because he hadn't given them all their change. Well done young man.
