The food and prices are average. My grandchildren loved the buffet, $20 adult or $10 for 12 and under. My daughter wanted to come here for the salt and pepper shrimp, but it was much too salty. The atmosphere is nice, and the owner/manager is very accommodating and friendly.

This is my favorite Chinese restaurant in Honolulu. The food is always good and if you want them to make something, they will make it for you. I have been visiting this location since the early 80's and the food has always been wonderful. This time we went in a group of 10 and ordered so we could eat family... More

We were there on 4.27.16 and it was the best meal we had while we were on both Oahu and the Big Island. (and we had some expensive meals on this trip) Every bite of all 4 of our meals was excellent! I have eaten at a LOT of Chinese restaurants and didn't think one in particular could be topped... More

Maple Garden was our venue of choice to celebrate Chinese New Year! Not incredibly fancy - like some of the newer upscale Chinese restaurants - but good food and service. Visited earlier to select the special menu with Richard, who was very accommodating. Made selections that would be tasty for the children and symbolic for the adults - certain specialties... More

Our group of 15 reserved the private meeting room for a non-profit group evaluation dinner meeting. This room can accommodate about 20 comfortably. This meeting room was perfect for our needs in that we had privacy and we could have a Chinese buffet dinner where everyone had numerous choices. The room is supplied with a DVD player, sound system, and... More

Looking for an upcoming birthday dinner restaurant, we decided to test the Maple Garden Buffet lunch to get an idea of the quality of food. They served 14 hot dishes, two deep fried dishes, two dishes of noodles & salad. We were also provided with a pot of green tea. We rated the food at 3 1/2 stars. The server... More

We stopped here for a late lunch, early dinner. The place was empty. Admittedly it has been 15+ years since my last visit but the place really shows its age and wear. Time for an upgrade to the 21st Century. The food and service were both acceptable, but nothing like what I remember. I doubt if I will visit again.

I know the locals love this Chinese buffet where for just under $20 you can fill up on a variety of meats and chicken, including duck and shrimp. As someone who eats almost no meat, I found the veggie choices in the buffet about on par with some of the lesser Hawker locations in SIngapore. Thee noodle dishes were greasy;... More
