Where to Eat in Hana: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Enriqueta Cusson

Isolated from the rest of Maui by a 52-mile winding drive through coastal rainforest, Hana is an unspoiled beauty dangling from the island's northeastern tip. Untamed Kahanu Garden contains the world's biggest collection of breadfruit and a lava-rock structure believed to be the largest ancient place of worship in Polynesia. Soak up the tropical splendor on beaches with red or black sand. Winter and spring bring humpback whales, visible from Hana Beach County Park.

This is a hot and Miss right across the street from the general store. If the cart is set up make sure and stop, the lady operating the cart will also wave you down as you go by. The flavours are unique and a great way to cool down. Pricey for a Popsicle but worth it.

Huli Huli Chicken

Reviewed By PeasnLuv - Madison, Wisconsin

We arrived before their 11am opening time, so we enjoyed killing time by wandering the lovely Koki beach and chatting with the man grilling up the Huli Huli Chicken. Super nice people all around at this family owned place. Loved the casual home cooked - beach food vibe. We ordered the Hungry Man (which is half a chicken) and the Kalua Pork with cabbage mixed plates, both to go. The chicken was delicious, though we were sad to hear it comes from Costco. They do their own brining, seasoning, and cooking of course, but we had hoped perhaps the chicken would be a little more mindfully sourced. The Kalua Pork with cabbage was pretty bland, so wouldn't order that again. All along our trip we found that to be the case though, so probably it was well made and we just don't care for Kalua pork. We picked up some taro buns at the local market in Hana and had enough food for lunch again the next day.

Nestled at the top of a hill in Hana, this little food truck has some pretty tasty food. Fresh cooked within minutes the fish was perfectly cooked. Dragon noodles were fabulous and large generous portions. So glad we stopped and I would highly recommend if you like Thai food.

A fun little shack on the roadside with funky decor and a lively story. Great iced treat along the drive. We had the Candied Pineapple with Coconut and Chile Chocolate with Coconut. Both were delicious! Super friendly gent working the counter when we stopped.

Bradduh Hutt

Reviewed By vrodz8 - Morrison, Colorado

O.M.G. Bradduh Hutt is FANTASTIC! We absolutely LOVED this place. The food is SO GOOD and plentiful. We ate here twice in the three days we were in Hana and would've more had they been open on the weekend. It is delicious, fresh food with a good variety of choices. Family owned and worked, friendly service and lots of tables on which to eat. Saw a lot of locals eating here, which is a great sign. DO NOT MISS eating at Bradduh Hutt; it will not disappoint!!! This is hands down our favorite place to eat in Hana, and we've tried them all.

Ae's Thai Kitchen

Reviewed By TKScuba - Portland, Maine

"Surprisingly good" because it's a food truck with outdoor seating on the side of the road. I ordered the "Hana caught" Ahi ginger stir-fry which was amazing. The Ahi was fresh and seared perfectly, and the ginger stir-fry sauce was delicious. It was served with veggies and jasmine rice. The portion was generous enough to leave leftovers. The drunken noodles and pad thai that others ordered also looked really good.

Hana Farms

Hana Farms Banana Bread and Fruit Stand. Selling all local Hana Made Products. Local candies, gifts and treats from the Hana community.

Reviewed By sunflowii - Toronto, Canada

bought their macadamia banana bread which was ok.
sampled their Pineapple Lime Hot Sauce and their Banana Coconut Curry Hot Sauce. Both were so good - sweet and spicy. Didn't read the signs closely and thought that it would be available in town, in groceries. I was wrong. Saw the review below where ordering online meant a shipping cost of $19 for a $12 product.
Good thing a few days later we went to the shopping area called Kihei Kalama Village and found both hot sauces for a $1 more. Better than paying for shipping.

Chow Wagon

Reviewed By KingMama - Glen Mills, Pennsylvania

We stayed in Hana area 3 nights and you really have to watch the time for dinner because the food trucks all close early to mid afternoon, there are only like 3 restaurants (one was closed, one is upscale), and both stores close at 7/7:30! We ate here twice - food was good, large portions (ask for yummy salad in place of the side fries), staff very friendly. Nice break in $$ after the $100 lunches for our family of 4 (with two teen boys) on Oahu.

The Preserve Kitchen + Bar

Reviewed By DoctorM - Bend, Oregon

The Preserve Kitchen and Bar at the Travaasa hotel in Hana share the same menu, but you will have two different environments. The bar has open seating and features live music most nights. The dining room generally requires a reservation and has tables on the lanai which is more tranquil. The view disappears after sunset.

We had dinner twice during our stay at Travaasa and found that the food ranged from bland to surprisingly spicy. A Caesar salad was definitely bland with no hint of garlic or anchovies. The 'fried risotto balls' were an Italian-Hawaiian fusion appetizer served with sweet chili sauce.

Grilled fish with eggplant , fern greens, and spicy red curry definitely woke up my tastebuds and bordered on lip-burning hot. And the 'crispy beef' coated with cornstarch , deep fried , and coated with an onion/chili sauce was spicy good. Served with bok choy and rice.

The lilikoi cheesecake was very odd. More like a blob of mousse than a classic slice of cheesecake.

An inexpensive wine list with a lot of bottles under $60.

There are not many choices in the small town of Hana and we enjoyed this one.
