Very fast service and hot food. Wife had the abalone with mushrooms and jellyfish with cucumber. Extremely tasty. Large spring rolls with choice of veggie or meat. Tad bit oily. Twice cooked pork was sparingly on the pork, but delicious. Will go again.

This place is on the small side. Ambience is plain but comfortable, and besides none of that will matter after they stqrt bringing out the food, which is just utterly fantastic. The honey shrimp dish (I don't remember what they call it on the menu) is to die for. We had a large party so we tried many different dishes.... More

I knew nothing about this place, but while waiting for a bus just outside, the smells coming out were too wonderful to ignore, so I jumped in. I knew I was in good hands when I noticed all the people eating were Chinese. I was by myself, so I just ordered one dish--shrimp and broccholi. It was done slightly different... More

Just wanted to update my previous review that the food & service still is excellent. Got the Peking Fried Rice, beef with onions ( so tender & delicious), and love the tofu and Chinese cabbage. $36. Skipped the potstickers tonight, but recommended. Also the sautéed green beans. Off the beaten path of Waikiki/ corner of S King & Keeaumuko.

We had heard about this restaurant and its excellent Korean noodles which are home-made every day. We had two types of noodles and both were delicious. The Kim Chi was also made by the owner's 80+ year old father and was also great. The price was very reasonable and the service was excellent. The restaurant is somewhat small and cozy... More

We went with my family for ja jang myun (noodles in a black bean type sauce). Very good. Much better than lobster king across the street. Tang soo yook (sweet and sour pork) was also good. Will be back next time we are craving ja jang myun, which will likely be very soon!

Interesting chinese restaurant since they served kim chee and cold sesame noodles. Nonetheless, it was very good. We had the sweet and sour pork, shrimp, and beef (three different dishes) and it was delicious. The pot stickers were also very good but it didn't come with a dipping sauce.

If Honolulu has a good selection of Chinese eateries, none are better than Eastern Paradise on S. King's restaurant row. A staple of the city since 1977, this simply-adorned dining room delivers some of the best Chinese food I've tasted. The pot stickers are wonderful, and their spicy garlic chicken packs a deliciously pungent zip! Some reviews here list the... More

Off the beaten path, a local place with delicious food. My favorites are the fried potstickers, beef with onion, any of the fried rice, simply too many items to comment on. You won't be disappointed with any choices.
