Honolulu's Chinatown area is not far from Waikiki and the cruise ship docks. Unless you arrive early in the day, plan on waiting 30 minutes to be seated -- but you'll be glad you did. As authentically Chinese and incredibly tasty as it gets in Hawaii. You'd have to go to the China or Taiwan to even match it. Probably... More

The lobster was okay. The beef dish was watery and the chicken was way too salty. I've had better elsewhere

The line was long and time was running out, but once seated we proceeded to knock back the dim sum and move on to some excellent fried rice. Had to take some of the food home. A great spot I always love for lunch!

We would visit this fine establishment every Sunday morning prior to the church. The premises is located in the Chinatown Culture Plaza and you could park within the plaza; make sure that upon finishing your meal, have your parking stub stamped so you get a discount on the parking. The Dim Sum is authentic Cantonese; not the pseudo pork hash... More

We went on a Saturday so it closed by 2. We arrived at 1:30. Some individual things not available as they sell out early. No pot stickers, but you can always have a pot sticker. But HUGE array of treats with no wait for another rolling tray of dim sum to pass by. Awesome. Go hungry. After you can walk... More

The food is good and the atmosphere is casual although a little bit noisy. It's a great place to go with friends or family.

We had reservations but it seemed like people were seated reasonably quickly despite it being quite busy. Parking isn't the easiest to find nor is the entrance to the restaurant which is on the canal side not by the main road. Otherwise the dim sum was excellent overall. The staff seemed to know when we were eyeing something on their... More

We took our daughter-in-law here to celebrate her birthday. We had never eaten at a dim sum restaurant, and we confused at first. The servers were hard to understand, but we caught on fairly quickly. We chose spring rolls, some little pastas filled with pork, and fried wonton shrimp. All three were delicious! We then ordered a main dish consisting... More

Not easy to find - off of Beretania Street in the Chinatown Cultural Plaza. Cheap parking across Beretania in the garage. Fresh, great selection, fast service, mango and egg custard desserts that people loved. What's there not to like? We made reservations for 8 of us at 1:00, and got there early at 12:15. They were able to seat us... More

We go here every other Sunday and it's always the only dim sum place that is full. That's saying something. Everywhere else is practically empty, but Legend Seafood has people clambering for yummy buns! Shu mai, custard buns, pork buns, lotus paste buns, spare ribs, shrimp rolls... If you're a fan of dim sum, experiencing different cultures, and cheap eats,... More
