Only one thing to say: For all the fantastic food and mammoth portions here, ensure that you bring at least 3 other very hungry friends to dine here. This place rocks! :-)

My wife and I had to wait for about 30 minutes before we were seated. It's a very popular place with many large parties having a great deal of fun. It is certainly not quiet. But even though we were just a party of two,...More

They're famous for their fried rice, and one order is plenty for a group of 4, plus maybe 1-2 meat dishes, depending on the people/appetite. The portions make this place an amazing deal, and the food is excellent. Try the ribs with lillikoi BBQ sauce...More

Long wait, reservation would help, or come early. Fried rice to die for, tender fried pork chops, mounds of Chinese chicken salad, yakisoba. Very family oriented with happy people celebrating this, that, or the other. Comfortable booths and atmosphere. Friendly staff. Come hungry. Be prepared...More
