Every plate achieves that elusive,
cuisine-defining balance of sweet, salty, and sour.
Authentic Chinese cuisine with a twist of Hawaii awaits. We begin with only the finest imported Chinese spices and products. We then lay a local inspired farm to table concept on top of that to create our Regional, Seasonal and Artisanal (RSA) approach with regards to local sourcing. All of this while maintaining approachable prices at our Chinese restaurant in Hawaii.
A fun and innovative wine list highlights unique varietals from different regions. Our curated wine selection is specifically chosen to complement our regional cuisine. We provide ongoing wine training and tastings for our staff to better guide our guests through their dining experience.
A high energy atmosphere with engaging and knowledgeable service. Upbeat music combined with a beautiful family style dining room featuring a semi-open kitchen with additional outdoor seating for those who enjoy Al fresco dining.
Nightly dinner and wine specials from 4-10 pm.
