1 Plus 1, your waitress needs to be Ace. She's great, friendly, fast, and she knows her products. You will need to go early for lunch and dinner time. Place fills up very fast.

Went to the restaurant because it was conviently located near Walmart, where we were shopping in Hilo, HI. Ordered the BBQ chicken plate. What I got was re-cooked chicken that they did not sell last week. It was super hard/dry. I'm just thankful I didn't have to go to the hospital after swallowing.

Have eaten here several times and am sad to say the cuisine is not improving. This is a bare bones Chinese restaurant with average quality food and casual service. The prices are reasonable and the portions are generous, but lately the flavors seem flat.

I always eat either the char siu plate or the roast pork Mein. It's beyond regular Chinese food. Mmmm and it delicious, try the char sui!!! The food is relatively fast but the service is ok. We always sit in the same booth because we know our server "Ace" very well..if you aren't too sure what to try, ask her!... More

Decent food, no real complaints but not too good either. Appetizer I had was good (vege spring roll in rice paper), but entree was not very good. Service is non-existent, but friendly enough and I'm usually happy being left alone for the most part. As someone who doesn't eat meat I will say the menu doesn't have many options for... More

I've been eating here for 5 years and have always been happy with the food and the service. My favorite dishes are the combination BBQ plate, which comes with rice and salad. The Vietnamese cold noodles with chicken are also good and the chow fun is addictive. We always get the shrimp Vietnamese rolls (not the fried ones) as an... More

The cold noodle dish is great- it 's the closest thing to an entree salad you'll find in an Asian restaurant. My companions had sweet & sour pork and general tsos chicken. The sauces were good, and the dishes came with a little side salad, which was nice. But the breading was way too thick & heavy, masking small pieces... More

Probably wouldn't come again. Service very slow but the place was packed. The walnut shrimp came completely by itself, was hoping for at least some rice but the waitress never even stopped back by to see if I needed anything. Summer rolls were decent, sauce was too salty. The walnut shrimp tasted like it had been sitting around for a... More

Staff is very friendly and I love the rice dishes. Quantity and quality are excellent. Parking can be difficult but worth the time. The restaurant could use a good remodel and clean up. Otherwise it is ok.

I usually get the duck or pork plate and it is always wonderful! The stir fried bok choy with mushrooms and tufu is also very good! The service is quick and friendly. The prices are very reasonable. Not fancy but very good food!
