Maui's homegrown cafe featuring locally inspired cuisine, organic coffee and other tasty treats! #pikocafemaui
We ate here numerous times while on vacation. Lunch is much better than breakfast. Highly recommend the Mochiko Chicken, and the Ono-Ono Shakes (peanut, banana, chocolate). Each lunch comes with the main dish, two scoops of rice, and a scoop of macaroni salad (very typical local lunch). Tried a few different items (Katsu Chicken, Mahi-Mahi, Mixed Plate). Really thought the Mochiko chicken was the best. Talking with the staff, they also thought the Mochiko chicken was what they did the best.

Authentic Indian Restaurant located by the Ocean Side with a beautiful View of Sun Set serving Lunch Specials & Fusion Menu- Pizza, Burger, Sandwiches, & Wraps. Enjoy your food right on the ocean.
Stopped in on a quiet Sunday evening and enjoyed a most tasty kabob dish consisting of Tandoori baked chicken drumsticks, jumbo prawns and minced lamb served on a bed of sautÃ©ed Maui onions on a sizzling plate. Also had a most perfectly baked Naan bread (very thin thickness). All washed down with a draft beer (Maui bikini blond). The only drawback is the limited amount of restaurant parking spaces; I ended up parking further down toward Kihei.

I worked on Maui ten years ago and visited Maui twice then and was luckily introduced to Sansei. I was back know with my family for a week of vacation, took them to Sansei the first evening and it was love from first sight.Sansei also offers 25% discounts on pretty much the entire menu on orders places prior to 6PM. We were severely jet lagged so we were early birds and had a feast most evenings on Maui - you simply donât argue with success.The food was DELICIOUS!!!!Aloha and thank you very much for posting your great review and comments. We appreciate them very much. And we certainly appreciate you spending five of your dinners with us! That's quite the compliment! We look forward to seeing you again the next time you visit our beautiful Island.

Authentic yet contemporary Thai Dining in a clean, relaxed environment.
The food is bland not authentic in anyway..I have been to this restaurant many times in the past and it isn't anything like it was. !.I found the waitress clueless .I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone.I am sure there are better thai restaurants on the island...

Finally made to this place for the Loco Moco. They have a really good menu. We chose to eat on the deck with the leaves and musician. I had the burger. Turned out to be really juicy, especially with all my fixings. Wife had the Loco Moco, she says it is now her fav Place for Locos. Her Mi Tai was just ok, pretty weak and the onion rings are a pass. Our waitress Janice was a doll.Hi Mark, we really appreciate your feedback and such kind words! We're looking forward to serving you again.

This is a quick-serve, counter service place at a strip mall. It features local favorite dishes like loco moco and more. There are tables for those who wish to dine in, first come first serve. The dining area has ceiling fans, but I don't recall any AC. In the evening when we arrived, there was a daunting queue, almost out the front door. Recommended for those looking for quick, quality local food in a casual setting. Tip: try going in off-hours to avoid crowds.Aloha,Thank you for the detailed and accurate review. We do offer a dinning area, but it does fill up quickly at times.Please stop in on your next trip here.Mahalo,Kent H. AotakiManager

Miso Phat Sushi Kihei is here to serve you with Freshest Fish, Award Winning Sushi, and Best Customer Serve in Kihei. Come check out our daily specials.
For our last meal on island, we stopped at Miso Phat. We ordered the Miso Phat roll and the TNT roll, Kanpachi nigiri, and Hamachi nigiri. The Miso Phat Roll is Spicy Tuna roll wrapped with Unagi and avocado, topped with Tobiko, Unagi sauce & Sesame Seeds. REALLY tasty. The TNT Roll is Shrimp Tempura and Crab roll topped with Ahi Poke and served with Unagi sauce and Agave Honey. The poke is seriously fantastic. Both are specialty rolls and live up to the tag line of âso big you could explodeâ â when ordering, budget about a specialty roll per person unless youâre really hungry. The kanpachi was vey good. The Hamachi was mind blowingâ¦ seriously fresh and like butter. We have been ruined until our next visit. We need to remember to order the Hamachi sashimi next time and come with a larger appetite. Good service, nice people. Prices are Hawaii pricesâ¦ if youâre not expecting them youâll be shocked. This said, they are island-normal and not obscene given the size of the rolls.

We were excited by Nutcharee's claim that the restaurant served authentic Thai food, i.e. Thai food like the food served in Thailand. The food was quite tasty but not similar at all to real Thai food. However, unlike the many very disappointing restaurants in Maui (or at least the Kihei area), the food was tasty so long as you put aside an expectation that it should really be like food in Thailand. Thus, with this weather major caveat, I recommend the restaurant and may even return for another meal.

We are a family of sushi lovers from the NYC area and have eaten at many of the best sushi restaurants in the world. The sushi prepared by Hiro was fantastic. The fish was incredibly fresh and rice was excellent. The environment reminded me of a sushi counter in Tokyo (to call it low key would be an understatement!). I would eat at this place everyday - if I could get a reservation! It's a small place (10-12 seat counter + 1 table for 4 or 5) so definitely call for a reservation (I think they take reservations up to 30 days in advance). The lead waitress/hostess (who I assume is Hiro's wife), was very friendly.
