I am a saimin and won ton mein snob and have eaten a lot of it since being home on a short trip and this place ranks pretty high as far as quality of noodles and taste of broth. Generous portions and piping hot. The building is nice and new and the air conditioning was nice on a sweltering day.... More

Best Chinese restaurant on the island! The lemon chicken is amazing. The portion size is large, we usually get a mini plate and it feeds two of us.

Went by the previous reviews and I'm here to tell you. Don't listen to them. Here's the bottom line. If you have been to the mainland and visited the smallest hole in the wall Chinese place and loved it. This is NOT like that. Yes good size restaraunt, but horrible food. Then when we complained about it. Just got a... More

This place just reaffirms that this island has no good chinese food. I lived in San Francisco where I had chinese food thAt was more than edible, this place the food was far from edible. If you are really wanting chinese food in particular and you happen to be on this island, honestly your best meal will be Panda Express.... More

Cheng's Chop Suey House has recently moved from their old Kilauea Ave address. They now serve food from a new and clean building located at 138 Hualalai St., in Hilo. Their food is very reasonably priced with Huge portions that will leave you with enough food for another meal. The place looks very clean inside and service is friendly and... More

Chengs has the best Chinese food in Hilo. The servings are HUGE, the food is tasty. You definitely won't go away hungry from this place. The restaurant is pretty new--just opened in 2012. Great place for large gatherings--they even have a separate room for parties. Don't pass up the crispy chicken (they'll bring several different sauces oyster, lemon, canton--out of... More

I had never been here before. I had seen it on the main highway to the Volcano. A Tribune Herald article said it was the best chinese in Hilo. I like Chinese food. It's seedy/dirty looking inside. A staff pushed me out of the way while I was looking at the food trays and menu on the wall and trying... More
