Here's the thing... If you're already in downtown Honolulu you probably have access to ALL of Chinatown and lucky, lucky you. You will find carts of fresh fruits and veggies as well as some of the most exotic spices and ingredients and prepared foods as well. But should you not feel like wandering through the crowded stalls and dusty shops and should you want to sit down in comfort and enjoy a more refined Chinese meal... you must go to Little Village Noodle House-- "Little Village" as the regulars call it. Our family of four popped in on a VERY quiet Saturday afternoon, really it was so quiet we were one of two groups in the place which I hear is unusual. The service was just kind of "eh";-- but dare I say added to the authenticity of a good Chinese dining experience. The prices were a bit on the high side, especially if you are coming off of the streets of Chinatown where deals abound. The ambiance is sweet, as you feel you've escaped the hustle and bustle of the downtown streets and have found yourself tucked into the most serene Chinese garden-- think true zen. But the food, ahhh the food was amazing. Layers of flavor and oh so much yumminess. We enjoyed the salt and pepper porkchops, fried noodles with vegetables, orange chicken and on another occasion the Peking Duck, (which was pretty darn pricey but oh yum). This is our go to place for Chinese cuisine when in Downtown Honolulu.

OMG!!! This place is Awesome!!! This local style Chinese restaurant that really knows how to make your money stretch! The food tastes INCREDIBLE and you get HUGE portions (Family-size). Its kinda hidden away near the Miramar Hotel on Kuhio Avenue.Back in the day while working at Pacific Harley-Davidson, we'd all chip in a few bucks, send someone to pick-up our call-in ahead order and PIG-OUT like a Maniac!! Wow!!! What a memory! LOL!!!
Better than Panda! Less greasy. Huge portions. Lots, lots of vegetables. Very friendly. It's near my home; it took me quite a while to finally go in, but now I go several times a week. Place has not taken off yet, but I am rooting for them big time.
Granted, the service is occasionally a bit sketchy when the place is crowded, but the food is invariably excellent and the prices are moderate. Also, there is free parking in their lot behind the building -- a rarity in Chinatown.
The service was excellent at this restaurant. We had the egg roll platter and lettuce wraps appetizers which were excellent. I had the special dinner plate too and enjoyed it as well. Good value for the money.
I am very sad,I always go to this restaurant when I was in Oahu,I love roasted duck here!Please tell me where they are now!!!!!!!!
Good chop suey restaurant - nothing fancy but very tasty. Large portions and reasonable prices.This is local comfort food.
wow, we've been seated quick. we got out food just as quick. all I have to say is wow.
