We eat here whenever we come to Waimea. It's not fancy but the food is very good. The buffet has great variety, replenished often and is very affordable. The cook to order menu is really good too. The restaurant is clean and comfortable with plenty of tables with tables large enough for families or large gatherings. The staff is very... More

We went to the Jade Palace for the lunch. we ordered the lunch buffet for about $11.50 and a lunch special for around $11. The food was average. Even though we arrived close to the end of the buffet, the food was replenished and a good variety. The restaurant was clean with good service.

Not fine dining, OK, but the food is great. It's great value and the staff are courteous. Locals flock here, so that says something. Portions are good, too. The restaurant does lunch and dinner, beer and wine and has a popular buffet at the weekend. When you've has enough of swanky eateries, take a trip up country to Waimea and... More

We were looking to stay in our timeshare for dinner to relax and play games. We easily placed a take out order using their on-line menu and it was ready in 10 minutes. Portions were large and price was reasonable. Food quality was good but not extra special.

After having a long day we just wanted some take out so we could go back to our Hale Kukui paradise and relax. The food was great and would definatley recommend this for a quick easy dinner if you don't want to cook.

I actually went out to go to a seafood spot, but it was closed. I decided to take the road for the little town of Waimea and hit this little restaurant in the Waimea Center. Let's give it a go..and it was a surprise. It's clean and comfortable but maybe lacks a little in the ambience department. Functional more than... More

Setchwan eggplant tasted more cantonese, lack spicing. Lemon chicken OK. Good value with a nice soup and egg roll. There are probably better lunch options in town.
