Food here, as well as options, is excellent. Not much in terms of atmosphere, but you can eat in if necessary.

For decent hot Chinese take out lunch or dinner - this is the place in Kona. I usually get the 3 item plate - rice or noddles and choice of two entrees. The lady that runs this place is very nice.

Don't expect mainland style Chinese food at this old local standby. But it serves up hardy portions though a little greasy, but fat is the name of the game here. The to go menu is great for a crowd or a single plate lunch. It...More
