This restaurant seemed to be VERY popular with guests from the Asian countries, but I wasn't impressed. The food was less than hot, and at the breakfast buffet, most of the food involves rice and other, I'm assuming' Asian dishes. Not much in the way of bacon and eggs. Dinner was the same as any average oriental buffet.

The restaurant serves buffet. Payment is made at the door, and is done before you can eat. Although, not accustomed to such practice, I only understood why this is done prior to eating when I tasted the food. The food was awful. This is by far the worse Chinese food we have ever tasted. My family and I are accustomed... More

The name is now Wok-Kiki but the restaurant is packed with Chinese visitors and I don't mean to be racist but they were very rude, smoking outside and spitting and dropping rubbish on the street. The vans that drop of the people eating..block the driveway and create a hazard for people walking down the driveway- it could be a dangerous... More

I think it's safe to say that I am accustomed to mainland/westernized "Chinese food". China Buffet was definitely not what I was expecting. The lady that greated us was very friendly, she even gave us some little cakes for my aunts birthday. The food was ok, but again, it wasn't what I was assuming I was paying for. There were... More

So if you're scrolling down and you read the reviews, you will see that the TRUE Chinese people LOVE the food while the haolefied (inauthentic and therefore NON-authorities on what "good Chinese food" means) absolutely "deplored" the buffet offerings, as one reviewer put it. lol if you're looking for authentic Chinese food at a BARGAIN price especially for these days...

This restaurant buffet was downstairs from the Ramada Waikiki where I was staying. I thought the food was deplorable. However, my girlfriend, who is Chinese and brought up in the islands and mainland China felt it was very good. She went back several times for more. I guess I thought they should cater a bit more to Western taste but... More

Sorry it was pretty dismal, with so many other food options in Waikiki. Just keep walking. The food was ok, but nothing special, its a low end buffet.

I agree with the majority of reviewers who give this place low marks. We were surprised to have to pay in advance - we should have had a look inside first! The food was difficult to identify as there was only 1 description card displayed; this was for a Hawaiien dish which proved to be truely awful. The rest of... More
