A word from Alan Wong’s Amasia - Grand Wailea - Waldorf Astoria
Literally, Amasia is a conceptual future supercontinent that would result in the merging of Asia and North America. Inspired to bring together the cultures of both continents through his travels and showcase our local bounty in his style of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, Chef Alan Wong has created a menu where east and west meet at Wailea.

    Was advised that it was so popular that you needed reservations a year in advance. Arrived at 6:45, advised they were out of the fried chickien and oysters. Server suggested to selecting a number of items to share, family style. After giving her our order, I inquired if it was too much food as we were not big eaters. She said it was sufficient. Maui is famous for its Kula corn, we ordered this item too. The corn was on the cob, two half ears but was also in the fish dish which would have been sufficient There was way too much food and when the last dish arrived, shortribs were 2 square pcs, tough and at $42, way overpriced. We ate barely 1/2 of one piece. Then found out they were closing on Saturday. This place is way overrated.

    We were surprised Amasia was empty when we arrived and soon discovered why - the food was awful! It began with a fantastic cocktail, but went downhill. The "clam chowder" was broth, celery, carrots, lots of raw bacon, and a few clams in the shell. It tasted terrible and was sent back. The salad had good potential, but had been drowned it in the dressing. The garlic noodles was mostly what tasted like leftover meat, very little noodles. The fried chicken was processed chicken (chunks of breast meat with a bone sticking out to look like a leg) and had very little flavor. We expected much more from a restaurant that was voted 'best new restaurant in Maui'. Benjamin did provide excellent service, though, and the place was beautiful.

    Alan Wong's Amasia was a great experience. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. Our server was extremely friendly and knowledgable about the menu. We enjoyed the Ceviche appetizer as well the Ahi Sashimi. The Braised Short Ribs were tender and the Onaga was perfect. The restaurant was lovely, it is a shame it is closing in November. It was not busy on a Friday night and I wonder if it is too hidden in the hotel to attract enough customers. It was rather expensive but well worth the money spent.

    The Red Snapper was the best tasting and appealing presentation. This was an outstanding dish. The sushi was not very good in my opinion and the decor seemed dated. Althought the snapper was very good we ate at better places in Maui.

    If you are dining on Maui there are so many better places to eat. Our waitress seemed put out by our presence, the location has no view of the ocean and in an empty restaurant they were reluctant to even seat us by a window near the koi pond. If you are unfortunate enough to find yourself in Amasia walk across the property to Humuhumunukunukuapua'a (or anywhere else). There are better places to eat here where they really want your business!

    We really enjoyed every aspect of our meal. We ordered the 5 course tasting menu and it was spot on. Our waiter was attentive without being over powering. I would caution that perhaps this restaurant might not be for everyone. The dishes are unique and adventurous. Just know that you might be eating out of your comfort level. For the more adventurous eater...you will definitely enjoy.

    This place should be replaced! The nigiri fell apart and for the dumpling app we received two greasy dumplings drowning in sauce. I order the mahi mahi and the entire dish was pretty to look at but tasted entirely of curry. My husband ordered the "fried chicken" which was served with wilted spinach and grey pulled pork: three flavors that did not go well together at all. It was serviced with a spicy sauce which was good and a goat cheese dressing... Also a bizarre pairing. Better off going elsewhere.

    We dined at Amasia a week ago and it was a very disappointing experience. From the moment we walked in, we were confused where to go because there was no one to greet us at the hostess station. We were then led into a very quiet room where everyone can hear the other table's conversation. The whole experience was very off and the food was just ok. We ordered sushi (raw shrimp, but we got cooked shrimp). The waiter went on to tell us that the shrimp was in fact raw. The onaga was probably the best dish we had. I will not be returning.

    I have read some reviews about the restaurant and decided to try it. It was only average and ambience was only fair. They managed to disperse all the screaming children instead of putting families in one dining room. I thought this was poor for other couples trying to have a romantic evening. Skip Amasia and go to the Humuhumunukunukuapaii where the food is also pretty good but the ambience and sunset far exceeds this spot.

    Great restaurant. This was our second time here and it has been delicious each time. We love the ambiance with coy ponds throughout the restaurant. The onaga was cooked perfectly and the miso sesame sauce a perfect match. Try the soup and sandwich as the kahlua pig sandwich with chilled tomato soup was a perfect match. I highly recommend this restaurant for the food, service, and ambiance.

    We went to Amasia after our wedding for dinner. We had the five course tasting dinner which was very good. It was a lot of food and we were very satisfied. The atmosphere was very quiet. The ambience was a little off for me. The restaurant was very chopped up and in small sections at least where we were seated. It was intimate but I think a little more decorations would make it cozier. The service was excellent!

    We loved Alan Wongs Four Seasons Hualalai Grill frommprevious big Island excursions. We were thrilled when we found Amasia at the Grand Wailea. The garden setting was not your typical Hawaiian feast for the eyes - there is no ocean to gaze at but you will care little after experiencing the beauty in the tastes that each dish boasts. Your senses are overwhelmed by the combination of fresh local flavors that add vibrancy with a decidedly hawaiian approach to Pan Asian cuisine. From age 8 to age fifty something - the restaraunt delighted each member of the group. Amasia opened our trip and will be the spot we return to for our last taste of Maui - it is a not to be missed dining experience.

    If you don't go into this experience expecting something special because its Alan Wong then you might give them 4 stars. I come to Maui often I have eaten here several times, each time while the food was good, it wasn't WOW! The pork buns are tasty, the soup & sandwich is inconsistent once the sandwich was salty but the soup great. This week the soup had no flavor. The traditional nigiri sushi was nice, but anything unique was eh. i.e. the poke of the day again almost flavorless, not what you would expect from poke. I'm not trying to be negative I don't think this is an avoid the place review. I really think it might be a nice place to try while visiting on vacation, its just that I expect so much more from a top chef like Alan Wong.

    At 5pm the mgr met us at the hostess table and informed us we could not order from the happy hr menu for our kids as he overheard our conversation with the hostess. We told him we ate as a couple the nt before and knew our kids would prefer the app. The waitress kindly said to order the app on the main menu ..same price. We were the only party dining both nights... Now I know why. Went to the adjacent eatery for dessert.... So much nicer. No attitude and the place packed. Only wish we cod haver saved over $120 tab from Amasia for just appetizers and water. Shame on the mgmt as waitress and staff were pleasant despite their grumpy mgr.

    We would haved loved for our server to share a smile or two and then our experiance would have been outstanding.We had a server that for every question we had, she had very little to say with a not so nice attitude. The welcoming at the front was great from other personnel but we happended to have a server that did not fit the overall experience. It was our first day at Amasia, recommended by some friends, and we so much looked forward to our dinner, but had a negative view of our server. I believe her name was something like, Natashia, dark complexion, in her 30's a little on the heavy set. As stated before, the ambiance and food were oustanding but in our opinion she needs retraining on cordiallity which everyone else seemed to have.

    We were very disappointed in the food. At the prices they charge, the food should be hot not luke warm or cold. It seemed like the tempura items were made in advance, put on a decorated plate and served. Very mediocre. The ambiance was lovely, but the food was very disappointing. I do believe that $19 for a lemon drop martini is a bit much especially since the glass was only two thirds full. We won't be back. Way over hyped.

    The hot appetizers were fantastic! The entrees were nothing special. They were good, but not worth the high price. If you go, just get a bunch of appetizers, a side of the broccoli and some drinks. Didn't live up to the hype. The devour isplain and boring, the bar was far more appealing than the dining room.
