The Islander An escape to paradise this winter ~ right here in Warwick


Right now, when we are all in the middle of the cold and gray post-holiday season, there are many who could use a little “taste of paradise” to ease their mid-winter blues!  What exactly does “paradise” actually taste like?  It tastes just like everything at The Islander, a premier Chinese restaurant in Warwick.

If you are a fan of lobster meat, shrimp and scallops, flavorfully sautéed with fresh Chinese vegetables ~ then that is “paradise”.  If you salivate just thinking about the Pu-Pu Platter, a veritable feast of eggs rolls, fried chicken wings, fantail shrimp, beef teriyaki, spare ribs, wontons and chicken fingers ~ then that is “paradise”!  Maybe all you want is a vegetarian dish, loaded with mushrooms, baby corn and spicy green beans ~ then that is “paradise”!  Finally, perhaps a refreshing Blue Hawaii Polynesian Cocktail is all you need to take you away to paradise. Whatever you choose at this popular restaurant on West Shore Road, you will be transported to a paradise of delicious food, great service, and a bar full of thirst-quenching drinks.

The Islander, an award-winning restaurant on West Shore Road, offers a huge assortment of appetizers, main dishes, seafood specials, fried rice, lo mein, and chop suey options.  For those with a fondness for American fare, you will also find plenty of classic favorites to choose from. For vegetarians, you will be happy to find flavorful dishes such as “Buddah's Delight”, a combination of assorted vegetables with water chestnut, bamboo, ear mushroom, baby corn, and fried bean curd in rich brown sauce. The Islander also has a full bar which serves fresh cold draft beer, along with a broad selection of wines, tropical, virgin and frozen drinks.
