Only tried two of the dishes so far, but the portions were big, good for the price, and the quality was good... not the "let's find somewhere we can use this gristle or leftover chicken" type... the decor is pretty impressive, and friendly staff. Plenty of choices! I recommend it!

This is a very good Chinese restaurant. The owner and staff are very courteous and friendly. Most local people go here to eat.

This place never fails. Always great service and food. A little pricey but worth it. My favorite is the salt and pepper shrimp and gaugee. Yummy

Good location, very fast service with a friendly smile. Food was fine, no complaints, nothing to rave about, it was just fine and we would order from again, minus the soup which used what I am pretty sure was frozen peas and carrots in the egg flower soup.The order of fried rice was good and Massive!

It looks like an old-school Chinese restaurant. The restaurant is family owned. The food is superb. We had a chicken dish on fried noodles, steamed ginger fish, egg foo young, and stuffed tofu. All were good tasting and well-prepared. The service was pretty quick. If there is any complaint it's that the food *all* came quickly and all four dishes... More

Came to eat here with my wife and kids. My wife grew up in Makaha, I grew up in town...McCully to be exact. I have lived all over the world and the U.S. and in my opinion no chinese food could beat the old Golden Duck or McCully chop suey of days past. Every one has their fave flavor style... More
