Kunia Chinese Restaurant – Kunia Shopping Center
For the past couple of months, my social media has been filled with photos from Kunia Chinese Restaurant. I was even invited to a media event for it at the beginning of this year but couldn’t make it. It was only a matter of time before I made my way to Kunia Shopping Center again on my usual rounds, so I finally gave in to the hype and placed a takeout order.
Two items that I constantly see on social media are their Crab Puffs and Honey Walnut Shrimp, so I knew for sure that I could not skip out on those. In addition, I ordered Sesame Chicken, Tofu (aburaage) with vegetables, and some fried rice. After all, how can you not order fried rice at a Chinese restaurant?
Upon arrival at the restaurant, I noticed that there was a long line, but every customer followed social distancing protocols. At the time of this visit, the restaurant was only doing takeout. Everything looked very efficient and organized. Each order was organized by phone number and then by in-store order or phone order. It was a very smooth experience and customer service was on-point even though the restaurant was obviously going through a rush. Like most Chinese restaurants, everything was packed neatly into a cardboard box which was easy to transport home.
Moving on to the food, my family and I enjoyed everything we ordered, but the winner was the tofu and vegetables. The tofu absorbed the flavor of the sauce so well and was accompanied by the usual chop suey vegetables: broccoli, bamboo, cabbage, and mushroom. I mainly ordered this dish for myself, but my entire family ate it and it was the first thing to run out!
The second thing that surprised us were the Crab Puffs. They were filled to the brim with a crab and cream cheese filling. They also stayed crispy after a 20 minute drive home. Lastly, the Honey Walnut Shrimp was very tasty and the walnuts stayed crunchy!
Overall, if you’re looking for value and efficient service, you should totally check out Kunia Chinese Restaurant for your catering needs!
