We were looking to stay in our timeshare for dinner to relax and play games. We easily placed a take out order using their on-line menu and it was ready in 10 minutes. Portions were large and price was reasonable. Food quality was good but not extra special.

After having a long day we just wanted some take out so we could go back to our Hale Kukui paradise and relax. The food was great and would definatley recommend this for a quick easy dinner if you don't want to cook.

I actually went out to go to a seafood spot, but it was closed. I decided to take the road for the little town of Waimea and hit this little restaurant in the Waimea Center. Let's give it a go..and it was a surprise. It's clean and comfortable but maybe lacks a little in the ambience department. Functional more than... More

This place has plenty of room for you and a family gathering to enjoy your meal. They also have a lunch buffet that is affordable and quick if you are in a hurry.

Setchwan eggplant tasted more cantonese, lack spicing. Lemon chicken OK. Good value with a nice soup and egg roll. There are probably better lunch options in town.

Wonderful Chinese food - good buffet - excellent soup and very accommodating for birthdays and large groups. Friendly wait staff. I would highly recommend if you want excellently prepared Chinese fare.

We chose the $24.95 dinner for 3 but was enough for 3! Didnt want the soup starter so they gave us and extra spring roll, these were not small either. Mongolian beef and chicken with veges, steamed rice, green tea , all good. Staff courteous and friendly, good choice for eating.

Though a small town, Waimea on Hawaii island features a real restaurant for Chinese cuisine. This restaurant offers an impressive menu. Still, the chef cooked up a special dish that was not on the menu, which was appreciated. The wide selection of traditional dishes are found only in Hawaii. This is the kind of authentic Chinese cuisine locals would expect.... More
