We've been coming here for years and have always been happy with both the quality of food and service. We arrived at 1pm for lunch and we were the only ones. Walked up to the counter to view the prepared foods. It looked like it was cooked hours ago. We ordered 3 noodle dishes; the beef chow fun came out... More

Visited one of my favorite Chinese restaurants....Royal Jade Garden Chinese.....last week. I was amazed at the new gold-laced chair coverings and new appearance of the place. We ordered Kau yuk (one of my favorite), salt & pepper ribs, orange chicken, honey glazed walnut shrimp, pork with harm haw/watercress and white rice. Although we were the only customers, the food came... More

Maybe it was that we arrived later in the evening, but the food wasn't as good as I was hoping. The food at the counter was luke warm and chewy - not fresh like it should have been. Rice was dry and the restaurant itself needs a serious make over. I fact part of the restaurant was being used to... More

15 years now, always stop here for lunch and sometimes dinner. Great Chinese restaurant which is obviously a local favorite of the residents in Kailua Kona; locals stream in constantly. They have great food made to order as well as a prepared buffet, favorite of locals at lunch. Their soups are amazing. Large variety of dishes and preparations including those... More

We loved this place! We were both in the mood for Chinese food and had little luck finding a good place back home. But then we stopped by here and had fantastic egg drop soup, egg foo young and chop suey-- all the best we've had in a long time. And we had enough leftover for a second meal the... More

Surprisingly fast hot food to eat in or take out. Good choices and large portions. We were only given a fork to eat, It would have been nice to have a knife to cut some of the meat dishes. Also the soda was very flat.

Forget Panda Express, visit this restaurant and be impressed with their extensive buffet, or order from their huge menu. Hot and Sour soup, Honey Walnut Shrimp, almost every kind of Noodle dish, and your traditional beef, pork, and chicken dishes. This place even has vegetarian and gluten free dishes!

My husband told me that it was a really nice restaurant inside but we got takeout. Excellent food! I want soup (due to a cold) and got Egg Flower Soup that was simply wonderful. And full of egg, baby corn cobs, etc. We also had a small portion of Vegetable Chow Mein which was excellent and my husband had Sweet... More

Popular with locals. I go annually to Kailua Kona and eat here often for lunch. Located in a shopping center away from the typical tourist places. Order off menu or use their buffet. Food has always been consistent and good.
