Farewell 216! Love, Hava Java.

Farewell 216! Love, Hava Java.

February 22 was Hava Java’s last day before moving down to 268 Water Street.

    Love the food. Phoenix chicken is a new favourite. I hear they’ll do some stuff that’s not on the menu – guess we’ll need to make ourselves more regular customers to find out. I think if you liked the old Shanghai (or was that Singapore?) where Blue on Water is now will like this place.

    We went there last night, first time for most but my one friend has been going there for years. Its a fantastic spot!! We went there for a birthday, and it was perfect for a special occasion as well as, I’d say, a quick bite. Way better than the bigger, crappy buffets. The person who takes your order is the same one who cooks your food and presumably who owns the business, so there’s no concern about the integrity of your food. Its a really nice atmosphere in there, cozy…great prices, fantastic selection, and best of all, delicious food!!!! The man who served us was so nice and funny. I would totally recommend it if you want a great Chinese food experience without all the crappiness of the buffets in town.

    Dirty utensils, sticky floors, burnt tasting rice and egg rolls that seemed like they were deepfried twenty times. Plus Almond Guy Ding that was only celery! I gave it a star only for the price.

    Best Chinese food in town! The owners are so sweet and accommodating. Food isn’t prepared until you order it. It’s definitely not cooked and reheated when you order, it’s made fresh. We mostly do take-out, but when we have eaten in their quaint dining room, we were very pleased. Service is great…food is great. Highly, highly recommend it!!

    Great place for General Tso Chicken in St. John’s. Prices are good, nice atmosphere, pleasant staff.

    This is the only must-have Chinese food in the city. Forget any of the usual mass-made combo meal deal. Be brave and order from the authentic’s part of the menu and pay special attention to the general chicken, ma la beef, fried singapore noodles, pheonix chicken and too many to list, and you’ll have as good as it gets around metro St. John’s. And if you can get away from chatting with the owners before your take-away goes cold, you’re doing good. Sweet people, amazing food, dece prices. Gotta do it.

    The best spot for chinese in town. If you ask, they’ll make the general chicken and kung pao nice and spicy. The owners are awesome people too.
