Restaurant details

I ordered a crispy tofu salad. The veggies were good, the tofu was done perfectly, and the dressing, while super spicy, was tasty. There was just SO much dressing that it leaked out of the to-go box all over the inside of our carry-out bag. My husband ordered a noodle dish that was quite good. The macadamia nut crusted tofu might be expensive, but it was fantastic. Definitely worth going just for that.

This little restaurant is located in the food court at the Queen's Shops in Waikoloa Resort, and we weren't hoping for much, but hold on to your hats!! The food is delicious, hot, fresh, and lots of it! Lots of flavour, not too spicy. Lots of veggie and GF and DF options. The meat and shrimp portions were very generous. We each had an entree our first time there, and then shared the next few times we went. Yes, repeat visits!! You're not paying big bucks for service or atmosphere. They have some restaurant seating in the shop, an outside lanai, and take out. Located next to the luxury theatres, and an ice cream shop.

Located in the Queens market place mall food court. Prices are reasonable, servings large and quality very good. Had the Lilikoi glazed chicken. Veggies were unexpectedly a bit spicy but whole plate was tasty. Interior only seats about 12 including the counter but there is more seating just outside.

Was craving for a bubble tea,was at Queens market place,and saw this Lemongrass Express Waikoloa at the Food Court and so decided to give it a try.Not good at all.Ended up throwing it.I was so disappointed.Was too sweet and the tapioca were super hard in the middle, not fully cooked.Wasn’t edible.Plus the Lady who took our order and who was also the cashier was cranky.She did not have a pleasing personality at all.She wasn’t courteous too.Waiting time was long.Not worth going back.

We looked for something open late as we had a full day. Lemongrass was closed, but still had customers dining. We asked if they would allow us to use their take out, and they kindly obliged. My husband ordered the shrimp tempura udon, but they were out of tempura flour, so he had it with unbattered shrimp. He said it was a good, late dinner as it was light. I had the chicken teriyaki, and it was very good. We would like to try the restaurant again, but earlier!
