Awesome Buffet... Make sure to call for reservations on Thursdays and Saturdays. That's when they normally have Crab Legs on the Buffet line. The buffet has a variety: peppered shrimp, crab legs, roasted chicken, to name a few! Includes a very unique selection of items in the Salad Bar: carrots n raisin salad, cold noodles, poke, broccoli n raisins-very delish!, several choices of Desserts, and drinks. Seating is on time if you have reservations. Service is excellent! Very relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.

The food was fresh and hot but there was a limited selection. What they did have was ok, nothing special. We feel it was overpriced as well.

Heard this was a must do. Not sure I agree. Most of the lunch offerings were tasty and there were some things we had never ate before so that made it nice to be able to sample. Unfortunately the salt and pepper schrimp so many had complimented did nothing for me. We did think the chicken was exceptionally tasty. You can also order from the menu. Be aware! A number of tour buses stop here and throngs of visitors dine at once.

One of the only places in hilo you can get a salad buffet. Eat the salad, fruit and dessert option, which is about $12. Good value for the food. Gets busy around lunch, especially when lots of tourists are there. The sandwiches are good, buffet is Chinese food.

You may need a reservation, as many tours stop here for the lunch buffet. There were 8-10 hot offerings, including a few vegetarian options like mapo tofu and steamed vegetables. The standouts were the salt and pepper shrimp, short ribs, and chicken drumsticks. A small but well varied cold salad bar is also available. A few platters of sliced fruit and a few baked goods round out the buffet.

We saw many people order from the menu, so there are other options if the buffet does not tempt you.
