Great Dinner Value
We went for the early bird 3 course fixed price dinner special for $20pp. The dinner is under new management and the service is outstanding. We ordered the sweet potato croquette, cinnamon tamarind pork ribs, orange thai curry and the flourless chocolate torte. The sweet potato croquette was very good, the pork ribs and orange thai curry was good and the chocolate torte was good as well but standard. For $20, this is very good value and the food is pretty good.

Home Fries....Say no more!
Truly special brunch options with the home fries stealing the show! Fine egg dishes to go with them:). Friendly servers. Nice spot in Paia for brunch or breakfast. Didn't go there for lunch or dinner.

During our trip to Maui decided to drive to Hana and wanted to have dinner in Paia. Went on Open Table and found Moana Cafe. What a gem-a fabulous find. Had the soup of the evening which had a coconut milk, pineapple and we did not want it to end. All our entrees were scrumptious. Had the local fish, my husband the Korean osso bucco and my daughter had the soy chile flank steak. This was one of the best meals we had on vacation and we visited high end to local restaurants. The lemon grass creme brulee was the best we have ever had. We wish we lived closer!! Anyone who visits Paia MUST eat here!!

Love the town of PAIA, great
Love the town of PAIA, great to watch the surfers, wind surfers and kite boarders, and was looking for a less touristy place than the normal restaurants in Lahaina. Wanted something with some local flavor. The menu was so creative and unique, but there was something for everyone. Delicious and gourmet food, in a casual, laid back atmosphere. It was a home run. Must try all the sides, Sweet potato fritters, winged beans, mushrooms; they were all incredible.

DaZoo is localicious
DaZoo has an eclectic menu filled with locally sourced, deliciously created food. Small, medium and large sized plates make this spot a great place to really dig into the menu. We tried several menu items and there wasn't a mediocre bite among them. Whoever's in the kitchen really has a good imagination and a clear vision on how to highlight local Maui produce, meats and fish. Highlights were the Kauai Prawns, the Meatballs and the Hamakua Mushrooms. DaZoo also has an imaginative cocktail list, beers, wine and delicious locally flavored shrubs. Go to DaZoo, you WILL return.

Unusual location that is a slightly off the main walkway, that hides the great food within. Really unique creations! Large space with lots of big tables and it seems too much staff - really good service. We brought 4 kids that were vulturing the adults meals (they were that good). Definitely something different from the ordinary and worth going out of your way.
