I went there for my birthday celebration and had a fabulous time. We tried a few items and most of it was tasty but a couple of things I probably wouldn't order again. But that won't stop me from going back because everything else was fantastic! Service was friendly and attentive. And the views.....Spectacular!

We went there for the Sunday Brunch. It was excellent for the price and the view is spectacular. The beef and chicken could have been cut a little smaller to let the flavor penetrate. The desserts were right on. The entertainer was great.
Also, a great place to stop for lunch after your flight especially if your place is not ready until later in the day.

This was our 3rd time at the Friday night buffet over 3 vacations to Maui. Had to sit inside. Couldn’t seat us outside. Noisy and cafeteria like. The food was compared to a poor wedding buffet. What happened to the selections? No sushi? Poor salad choices. Very poor dessert choices. Frozen cream puffs perhaps from a Costco? Won’t be coming back here again. We had made a res for next Friday night too but have now cancelled it.

One of our favorite places to eat when we visit Maui. The Friday night Seafood and Prime Rib Buffet is spectacular. We dined on a lanai overlooking a beautiful golf course and a view of the ocean. Great food in a beautiful setting. It is worth the drive.

It is a beautiful drive up the mountainside to the golf course which is the setting for the Kahili Restaurant. The view is spectacular giving a panoramic view of Mt. Haleakala and the valley on Maui from coast to coast. The food is always good and the service is excellent.

The waiter was very polite but was rushing me and my friend. We sat down and we were trying to take pictures and enjoy the view and we haven’t even looked at a menu or sat down & our waiter was already demanding our drinks and food. When we were eating it felt very rushed and we kept getting bothered. As someone working in a restaurant business you shouldn’t bother your customers more than 4x & should let them settle.

Did not eat there. We left, because there was a noisy private party and eating on the windy lanai was not what we expected. Restaurant should monitor open table reservations and let guests know about such functions. This place is good for lunch with nice view, but do not expect above average food. This would be a nice spot if quality of food and service would be a notch higher.
This was my first try for dinner, but won't be back at night, because it lacks atmosphere.

Brunch offers amazing variety of optional food choices best enjoyed by taking ones time to enjoy the view of the valley. Move from omlets to roast beef with several starch/vegetable choices then multiple salad choices to the table with ten different deserts and lots of fresh fruit. Coffee, OJ or punch included in the single price. Maui locals, we return often

We took our son and his girlfriend who were visiting us in Maui for New Year’s Eve brunch. The reservation process was simple. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was pretty good. It was awesome having live music, which we all enjoyed. The best thing is the beautiful view of central Maui, Ma’alaea Bay, and Haleakalā. We will be back!

One of the better seafood buffets in Central Maui. That being said the buffet has changed and the offerings are not as good as before. The cold section has been cut short with less selections in poke & vegetable salads..........and the desserts were also limited. The hot selections are still good but the crab legs were too thin and hard to break and eat. Less gravy or heavy sauce items would be healthier and best.

Overall, the food is good and being a resident and repeat guest ...it's easy to see the cutbacks and limited selection changes progress since you started this.............Once you've given it's hard to take back and I don't mind paying more if selection and quality are consistently good.......You were once the best seafood buffet in all of Central Maui and more.

Please think about this,

Horrible waitstaff and slow service. Thought view of golf course would be pleasant but kept hearing them mowing the lawns on the course and people talking amongst themselves from their golf carts. Wouldn’t recommend.

Food on the buffet was excellent and staff was attentive. Crab was perfectly cooked and plentiful. Room was quite loud and more of a cafatetia atmosphere. However, we were seated inside, probably different atmosphere outside? Will likely go again?
