My wife, daughter and I went to the Royal Jade. I'm not a clean freak, or a food snob, buyt I do know good Chinese food when I have it. The restaurant has been allowed to deteriorate inside, needs painting, and the table have clear plastic sheets over them. But, I thought, I have had great meals in places around... More

We loved it. You can also order combo meals and much more. A lot of variety. The staff was really helpful and very welcoming.... More

We've been coming here for years and have always been happy with both the quality of food and service. We arrived at 1pm for lunch and we were the only ones. Walked up to the counter to view the prepared foods. It looked like it was cooked hours ago. We ordered 3 noodle dishes; the beef chow fun came out... More

Although we were the only customers, the food came... More

Maybe it was that we arrived later in the evening, but the food wasn't as good as I was hoping. The food at the counter was luke warm and chewy - not fresh like it should have been. Rice was dry and the restaurant itself needs a serious make over. I fact part of the restaurant was being used to... More

15 years now, always stop here for lunch and sometimes dinner. Great Chinese restaurant which is obviously a local favorite of the residents in Kailua Kona; locals stream in constantly. They have great food made to order as well as a prepared buffet, favorite of locals at lunch. Their soups are amazing. Large variety of dishes and preparations including those... More

We loved this place! We were both in the mood for Chinese food and had little luck finding a good place back home. But then we stopped by here and had fantastic egg drop soup, egg foo young and chop suey-- all the best we've had in a long time. And we had enough leftover for a second meal the... More
