Top 10 Polynesian food in Maui, Hawaii, United States

October 4, 2019 Oliva Fomby

Find out what Polynesian restaurants to try in Maui. The Hawaiian island of Maui is a destination for true nature lovers. The ethereal bamboo forest and churning waterfalls in Haleakala National Park can be explored via the Waimoku Falls Trail. Stretch out on warm, golden sands or hit the surf for an unforgettable windsurfing or snorkeling session. Driving the scenic road to Hana along the island’s northeastern shore will be among the most spectacular journeys of your life. Time stands still at the Hawaiian village of Keanae, definitely worth a visit.

Highlighted by a hand-crafted bar wrap-around bar allowing for an open concept with expansive views, the restaurant’s transformation pays homage to the history of banyan trees in Hawaii as a gathering place to meet and share a meal. Chef Bella’s vibrant n

The Banyan Tree dubs itself as "classic Hawaiin with a twist." Our experience did not live up to Ritz Carlton standards that we have experienced in other locations. The menu was limited with only 5 non-shelfish entrees and the restaurant was out of chicken which is what my wife wanted to order. She ordered the filet instead that was supposed to come with Fingerling potatoes. The Fingerlings were sliced and fried and obviously held in some warmer for an extended period of time. They were also found to be extremely salty. So much for normal expectations of Fingerling sautéed in butter and appropriately seasoned. My Mahi Mahi was served on a bed of Coconut slaw which I found to be overwhelming for Mahi Mahi flavors. We complained about the Fingerlings, were told by manager that is just how they are prepared and were not offered an alternative. Unusual for Ritz or any Marriott to not make extra effort to please customer.

We were with some friends on a Saturday night celebrating an anniversary. What a disaster. To make a long story short, the dual fish dish was overcooked and the short ribs were dry and tough. My meatloaf was hard. We asked for extra items that we didn't receive. We wanted to just let the server know how the meal was and his suggestion was to get us more sauce. What??? For dry food, pour more sauce over it? To celebrate our friends anniversary, they received a card that had all the servers signed. That was it. You spend that much money on food and drinks and this is what you get. No wonder Roy sold out. It was nice that management comped both meals without anyone of us asking. Maybe because I checked in on yelp for the free chocolate souffle. They knew the screwed up and acknowledged it. That evening was suppose to be a joyous celebration. It was disappointing.

Da Kitchen

Reviewed By Michael L

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

Nothing on the menu is over $20 and you get decent portions. If you have a large party you must make reservations or you will wait. The place is always packed. They have breakfast, lunch and dinner options. We stopped for dinner with a party of 8 and ordered 8 different things and everything was delicious. They did a re-model of everything since the last time I came to Hawaii so the place looks great. Will stop again before I leave to go back home.

This was one of our favorite restaurants in Lahaina but that was over 20 years ago. One of the things we loved was the range of fish and choosing how we wanted it prepared. Now the chef does that. The fish was good but there are other places in Lahaina that are better. Since Kimos is right on the water, go for drinks/happy hour to watch the sunset but go somewhere else for dinner.

First visit to Azeka's. We had always wanted to try but hadn't gotten around to it. They have a large menu. Most people get it to go because they only have a bar to sit at and a few outdoor tables. It was very warm inside with no air. The staff were very helpful and our food came out pretty quickly. The lemon chicken with capers, rice and grilled vegetables was really wonderful. Thanks for a good meal.

KO with its fresh menu became my go to for meals almost every day while we stayed at the Kea Lani. I have a very restricted diet but was able to find a salad that I could eat with a few adjustments and ate it just about everyday even taking it with me on the plane home! (Thanks Manager David for helping me to make that happen on our day of departure!) The service from the hostess to the wait staff was impeccable. The restaurant is not by the ocean so did not have a view but is beautifully appointed and open air near the adult pool so a nice spot to decamp to after some pool time. Aloha Mimi and mahalo for your wonderful review! It makes me so happy to hear that you were able to have an excellent dining experience with your restricted diet, we know how difficult that can be! Thank your for the staff kudos - I have shared your compliments with him and they completely made his day! We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

Very friendly and prompt service. The mahi mahi was generously-sized and served with brown rice and a nice salad (with feta, nuts, seeds and a light dressing). The lemon and dill sauce was really tasty too. A tasty and very satisfying meal at a friendly establishment. Conveniently there is foil at the front so you can take away and keep your meal warm.
