Island Restaurant: For authentic Chinese cuisine right here in Warwick


Imagine this scene: 25 of your favorite friends and family, all gathered together in a spacious, luxurious and comfortable private room. Perhaps you are celebrating a team victory party, or a milestone birthday, or an anniversary, or an office party - or any special occasion for that matter! Then imagine those same 25 people hungrily helping themselves to a huge banquet of Boneless Spare Ribs, and Egg Rolls, and Beef & Broccoli, and Pork Lo Mein, and Fried Rice and General's Chicken? If you can imagine this tantalizing scene, then you can picture your next group celebration right here in Warwick's very own award-winning Chinese- restaurant, The Islander. With so many memory-making events to celebrate, be sure to make your reservation today at The Islander. With a capacity of up to 80 guests, it is the perfect place to be the perfect host.

Even if you are not planning a major get-together, there is still plenty for you to enjoy at this busy and popular eatery on West Shore Road. There are well over one hundred items to choose from here at this authentic Asian restaurant, including a huge and varied assortment of appetizers, main dishes and combination platters, soups, salads, seafood specials, fried rice, chow mein and chop suey options, to name but a few.

While this menu offers primarily Chinese cuisine, there are plenty of options for those with a fondness for American fare, such as the classic favorites BLT, Club and Delmonico Steak sandwiches (and even Veal cutlets!) Flavorful dishes such as the Cashew Vegetable Delight and Crispy Sesame Tofu round out a diverse vegetarian menu. The Islander also has a full bar where you can watch your favorite team on one of their many large-screen TVs and quench your thirst with a cold draft beer, or tropical, virgin and frozen drink. This is a casual and family-friendly destination for diners throughout the whole region.

Owners Simon and Ben Chan are proud of their restaurant, and they have worked hard to earn their reputation as one of Rhode Island Monthly's "Best Asian Restaurants" in the West Bay. Their employees are friendly, attentive and courteous from the moment you are greeted at the front desk until your last forkful (or chopstick-ful!), adding a whole other layer of hospitality to the experience here. In today's hurried world, it is nice to know such places still exist.
