Hey There!

Why should you eat here? There are so many restaurants in Carbondale IL! We have many reasons, its just best if you stopped in and try it for yourself! New Kahala has been a Carbondale staple for 27 years and if you haven’t tried us out you are missing out. We offer a wide selection of Chinese and Taiwanese dishes in a casual counter service concept. Our chefs specialize in fan favorites such as spicy General Tso’s Chicken and Chicken with Peanuts, a delicious diced chicken dish with dried chilies and peanuts. Come in and try traditional dishes like Taiwanese pork belly sliders and braised chicken leg over rice. All of our meats and veggies are cut in shop and each dish is cooked fresh and from scratch. We opened New Kahala with humble beginnings in late 1992 and are proud to be a locally owned Carbondale IL restaurant. Thanks to all our loyal customers for supporting us over the last 25 years!
