Either it was late in the day or the way they operate, they cook to order, which means the dishes are fresh but it took a while. Most tables are for 2 people. There were about 3 regular tables for 4 but a couple of them were dirty. The only reason we ate there was because we wanted something quick.

This is a great place to get a fast, good chinese meal. Eat in or take out! This location did not disappoint. All of my favorite menu items were there, just like in the lower 48. I really enjoy the String Bean Chicken and Orange Chicken There is something for everyone! You can get either a generously sized side with... More

This is one of those places we stopped at and grabbed something to take to the beach to share. It's the same as you can get anywhere. The staff was very nice. The service was fast.

After we arrived from an inter-island flight at Lihue Airport we headed for our B&B in Kihei and passed this Panda Express on Kihio Highway. It was busy and line moved quickly with efficient staff behind the counter. Gal cleaned tables as they were vacated, keeping lines moving. We were happy with the choices and three sizes of portions to... More

This your typical Panda Express, found everywhere in the USA, including the Hawaiian Islands. The food is good, something for everyone at an affordable price. The atmosphere is inviting for all but not business.

Fast, light and tasty. Stopped here one evening when we were looking for something light and were not disappointed.

On our last night visiting Kauai, we had our condo refrigerator cleaned out so we decided to do take out. We have this food occasionally when cooking is not an option at home. The food was good as expected, it did not taste any different than usual. We order three of the 2 entree meals that comes with your choice... More

This is a place that's probably not going to get 4 or 5 star but deserves 3. Quick. Easy. Good price. Food is satisfactory. I expected more to be honest as seen so many around. Nodddles were poor. Would not rush back. Might eat there again on the rare occasion.

Asian food that is formula prepared, a bit greasy, and sitting under heat lamps. Not bad value and good ingredients. Best for a quick lunch. 2 people can eat one lunch plate.

Seemed to me just like the Panda Express I visited in Chicago a month ago. The food was excellent and the prices were the same as Chicago (around $10). It's hard to find a great meal at this price anywhere on the island.
