Delicious calamari appetizer along with the tasty Vietnamese mule. The pad Thai was exactly what you’d expect! My husband and I both ordered it, both chicken and shrimp, i would get a more expensive fish or the chicken if I went again

My husband and I are both vegan. The server took the time to let us know which dishes could be prepared vegan. We had the yellow curry and fried rice. Very fresh and tasty. We ordered mild hotness, would go medium next time.

Panang beef curry dish was our favorite. The sauce was so good over rice. Seafood Pad see-ew was just okay not too flavorful. We didn’t like the pad Thai; it tasted like tomato sauce and noodles. The cocktail and mocktail drink selection were great especially the mojitos.

Great food! The oxtail soup is a must try. Service is so so, but to be expected at a place like Maui Thai bistro. It's a fairly loud restaurant. Drinks are good too. It is a little pricey. Best to eat there, as Togo portions are smaller.

Food was good , service was good but the only thing that turned me off was being misled on happy hour drinks . On there website and in restaurant two different prices . I noticed this discrepancy and mentioned to manager and did nothing or gave reasons why. Won’t be back

The whole dining experience and the food was outstanding. Fresh ingredients. The bartender even snipped off fresh mint out of herb garden for our mojitos.

Food was horrible and flavorless. Nothing like any authentic Thai I’ve ever had before and the strawberry mojito nasty. Service was very poor. Never came back to table after food delivered. We were only table at 4pm and took over 10 min for someone to even approach our table. Had to ask for check as they didn’t seem concerned about the experience we were having tonight

We so much enjoyed the fried rice which we got as a takeout go-with for a meal in the condo that we went back for lunch on our last day in Maui. The shiitake spring rolls and Pad Thai were excellent. We look forward to dinner when we return next year. We have tried other Thai restaurants in the Kihei area, and this is by far the best.
