Hee Hing

Hee Hing is one of those local Chinese restaurants that most locals have visited at least once in their lifetime for some kind of celebration - graduation, birthday, anniversary, wedding reception, funeral reception, baby's first birthday, etc. It has a high seating capacity and valet parking for customers. One would assume that the food must be pretty good as well.

We came here for dinner on a Sunday evening, because my friend's voucher was about to expire. Let's take a closer look:



The restaurant is located on Kapahulu Avenue and is very visible from the street, even at night, thanks to the bright red lights.


Since there were four of us, we selected one of the set menus designed for four people.


My friend's boyfriend had a craving for crispy gau gee, so we added this onto our order. It was crispy, but could have used more meat and flavor.



Mandarin Potstickers


Chinese chicken salad


Lemon Chicken



Beef with fresh asparagus


Walnut shrimp


Steamed flounder fillet Chinese style



Yang Chow fried rice



Almond float

Overall, I thought the food was mediocre - something along the lines of what I would expect from a small neighborhood Chinese restaurant, but at a higher price. But I can see why people like to throw large parties here - the location is convenient, the restaurant is big and they have valet parking underneath the restaurant. However, I don't think people walk out of this restaurant with the thought that it was the best Chinese food they've ever had.
