The restaurant serves Asian dishes from China, Vietnam, & Thailand. And no it's not necessarily the best food I've ever had but it is good. Some of my favorites are the shrimp pad thai, chicken salad, fried calamari, won ton mein, sizzling rice soup, lemon grass chicken and my all time favorite...honey walnut shrimp. The portions are large. I have... More

Their hot dishes are delicious, and if you're picking up "to go" this is a great option. However, their menu let's you select exactly what your taste buds are craving! A must have for us: Chow Fun Noodles, Mongolian Beef and Garlic Shrimp. Fast service, delicious grinds, reasonably priced.

The food was okay. The price was not cheap. You have to pay rice $1.5 per little bowl. The restroom in the back is dirty. You have to pass their kitchen which looks not that decent.

Average to poor. Not the best not the worst. Usually is a busy place and is good for a quick meal. Just don't expect a 5 star experience

Had dinner here twice this trip to Keaau. Both times delicious and bountiful in flavor and quantity. The pork fried rice is wonderful as is volcano shrimp and other dishes. Service is fast and friendly. I didn't try it this trip, but you used to be able to bring in your own beer for the meal since they don't serve... More

We were driving around looking for something different to try so we stopped there. We had never had Thai food before. Very spicy but also very good. Great service, very friendly !

I've had lunch here several times with coworkers while working in Keaau the past 6 months. The food is usually good but the service is just average. Lunch prices are mid-range and for Keaau, this is an upper end, sit down restaurant. Most of the dishes are pretty good with a mix of Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and local style dishes.... More

Had dinner in a party of six. Food is excellent. It's a very busy place, so don't expect constant attention from your waiter, but this is Hawaii, so that is the norm anywhere on the Islands. Prices are not cheap but reasonable.

This is the best and tastiest bang for your buck in Keaau. The food is consistently delicious. The service is polite and the food comes out very quickly. It is family friendly and seems extremely popular with local folks of all kinds. I don' t mind that they mix the ethnicities in their menu, as long as they keep doing... More

We only got to eat here twice. They do LOTS of business---take-outs the whole time we were there. Sit at a table and order from the menu, and you can tell from the service that they're all business---two nice ladies managed the entire front: inside, outside, and take-out. The food comes when it's ready. It is SO GOOD!!! Don't miss... More
