Right up front, if you are put off by unclean bathrooms and a run down appearance, this is not the place for you. If you want a great mixed plate, put your blinders on and dig in. The food is wonderful for the usual mixed plate options. We had the bbq chicken, loco moco,beef ribs and egg foo young. I had never heard of meat jun, which is thin sliced beef dredged in flour and egg batter, so I had to have it, it was delicious. The portions are huge so unless you are really hungry or splitting the plate, the "mini" portions are just fine for average eater. I knew we were in a locals place when we became the center of attention by all the people picking up to go orders and wondering who the strangers were.

Chinese family-owned popular local plate lunch place with amazingly authentic local Hawaiian style plate lunches (killer roast pork with gravy) but my expectations on Chinese BBQ (char siu, roasted pork, roasted duck) fell considerably short. We are spoiled by the intense competition in Las Vegas where we've resided since 1993. If you've been to LV's Chinatown, specifically Asian BBQ & Noodle on Jones, there is absolutely no comparison. So, a stop for a plate lunch is OK but after ordering a whole duck/roast pork for my friend's ohana party, roast duck was way below acceptable and instead of the Chinese style roasted pork, local style roast pork with gravy was spot on; just not Chinese BBQ.

Chinese food excellent...other dishes not so good...Egg plant dishes all tasty, fried rice & kau yuk good. Fish dishes come out small portions & fish not fresh. Noodles are okay!
