The Islander

The perfect place to host your holiday gathering ~ large or small


Right now, while we wait on the threshold of a new year and wonder what 2023 will bring, we might as well also get ready for some blasts of winter cold and some gray, cloudy days ahead. We will all soon need a little “taste of paradise” to ease the blues of those short days and long nights! What exactly does “paradise” 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.

What you won’t see listed on the menu is one of the best features of The Islander, their wait staff. The hosts and waiters, most of them loyal fans themselves, are attentive and courteous. Many of them have seen generations of families pass through their doors and have welcomed back regular customers who return after once having moved away. There is a real family feeling here ~ come see for yourself.

When you are planning an office Christmas party, milestone anniversary, birthday party or gathering of friends and family, consider booking one of the private function rooms at The Islander. Every effort will be made to accommodate your palate and your budget. If you prefer, they will also cater your next special event with their extensive menu.
