We went there for our anniversary & i let the know about that the day before. That day we were put but in a dark area, the staff took 15 minutes to take our order. And nobody acknowledged that it was our anniversary. And nobody even asked. The food was very good but the service was subpar.

This was our second time here. First time, we had an amazing experience. Greta food, great service. This time, great food, not so great service. Seemed like waiters first night. Not that familiar with menu, and other tables getting served faster than us. I think that must be on the server. Still will go back, because I love Sheldon's unique take on food.

We dined at Migrant on our last evening in Maui and were disappointed that it wasn't more exciting. We were seated outside on the patio which was lovely for overlooking the resort and ocean, however our seats were so uncomfortable (think industrial chic more than anything), I never really enjoyed it. We had a very very small table so when our share plates came, we really felt like there was no room for anything.
We ordered the 'Street Corn' as a starter and it was okay despite the fact that the corn was very tough. Then for our main course, we ordered the AY KUDESH! garlic noodles that were simply noodles with samba sauce. Truly unspectacular. Finally we had the TOCINO, FILIPINO SWEET PORK and I was thought it would be incredibly flavourful and tender but in the end, left us wondering what all the hype was about.
The overall design and atmosphere of the restaurant screams hotel dining room and so perhaps as they relocate to a new location, they can give it more of a 'migrant' flavour. And hopefully they can add more flavour to the food as well.

Been meaning to try Migrant for a while, finally got here. Heard their moving so I'll just focus on the food. Very interesting menu with a cross section of various Asian inspired dishes. Definitely an interesting mix with offerings new to me. I would whole heartedly recommend the food, though the three of us only tried a half dozen items. Unique combinations, something for everyone. Try it, you'll like it!

Kind of strange to have no menus available. Without menus in front of us, I guess we appeared to have already ordered. . We sat for quite a while waiting for menus. Then, then with not many beers on tap, they were out of the only one that was different from the others. Food was good, but not great. Ribs over cooked. Hostesses seemed indifferent and unfriendly.

Looking at the menu I was hesitant to try, but it was in the hotel. I absolutely enjoyed everything that we had, and we went there for three dinners. Each time trying something different and the a different desert. The vegetables were amazing and flavorful. The noodles were delicious, the protein plates were great.
I would highly recommend this restaurant, especially if you are staying at the hotel.
Great sunset view, great staff, and great food.

Migrant has a unique menu that requires some study and movement out of one's comfort zone, even for our foursome accustomed to Seattle-style Asian/fusion/eclectic food. Two of us had noodle-based dishes, both five-star and very satisfying. The garlic noodles were promised to be very spicy--in reality, they would have been 3+ on a 5-point Thai restaurant scale. The sambal in this dish was quite good but different in taste from my favorite oelek sambal. The tsukemen noodle dish was equally complex but not at all spicy. Two of us had katsu--thick pork chops in a sous-vide preparation followed by breading/finish cooking -- which avoided the usual pork chop toughness of other methods. For dessert, I had an ice cream sandwich -- sweet potato ice cream between sweet Japanese crackers--sounds weird but tasted great, a far cry from bland vanilla between soggy chocolate crackers. This is the kind of place that wants to be revisited so that one can march down the menu, a meal at a time.

I loved Sheldon since I first saw him on Top Chef. Food is really good. Must haves are the Fried Brussels Sprouts, The "OG" Garlic Noodles and the Chicken & Waffles aka KFC. You really don't need the Waffles. Only draw back is the location the Marriott hotel. It feels too much like a after thought hotel location and you wonder if Sheldon still cooks here.

Expected more from this place, especially with the well-known chef and local food angle. The decor was very plain and there was no edge or interest in the space, just a bunch of ordinary wooden tables and chairs placed in a space. Of course the view was amazing given the location. As for the food...the OG garlic noodles were recommended by the server but it was dry and underseasoned instead of unctuous and tasty. We had Ono with mashed okinanwan sweet potatoes and the fish was not only small but over-cooked and therefore very dry. The potatoes were sweet and tasty but contrasted strangely with the dry fish that didn't have any saucy savory element to assist in marrying the flavors. The server was not very attentive and did not stop by to explain why the food was taking so long or why we got some other table's food! The poor runner was much more attentive and apologized for the error. And when we asked about the advertised Kama'aina rates, the sever informed us that only two of us at the table of six qualified for the special rate. I guess I could have complained to the manager and given them a chance to rectify a few things but I didn't want to fuss since we were with friends and their family. Overall, very disappointing and embarrassed that I suggested this place to my mainlander friends.

We went for happy hour. The HH list was notably worth it. Everything was fantastic except that the restaurant accidentally threw away my leftovers and didn't compensate me with anything (I was really excited about the leftovers for later...). Not a big deal, but coming from a hospitality background, I would have expected more from a nice restaurant.

This place was recommended by fellow Marriott guests. They said you must try the kale salad, they said they would never ever eat kale and they loved it. They also suggested the wings and ribs.
We got the kale salad- delicious!!
We got the short rib noodles in onion soup- delicious!
We got the chicken and waffles- amazing! Had an Asian sweet spin.
Great atmosphere- great service, great food.

Although there are some great dining options elsewhere in Maui, South Maui tends to be overpriced and uninspired. Chef Sheldon makes magic at this Filipino fusion spot. Pancit was solid but unremarkable. Everything else was inspired, from the oyster shooters we started with to the Molokai potato and coconut breadfruit pie we ended with. Great service -- free valet parking and waitstaff was very attentive and personable. Ambience is buzzy, with nice balcony views of the upscale Marriott pool deck and long high tables inside by the bar. Highly recommended.

We went there one February evening hoping to learn what real "Hawaiian" food was all about.
The food served turned out to be very simple & tasty. But it was "too New York" for us.
As an example: we had "pickles" for an appetizer: a tray comes out with a few bamboo sticks, one carrot etc. It was basically a few pickled veggies arranged very skillfully by someone with a great sense of space...
Make sure you know exactly what each dish means before ordering it to avoid disappointment.
On the other hand, you may be interested in the Happy Hour drinks (at $8 per pop). That seemed a better deal to us, anyway.

Upon arrival we were seated promtly. Nice table with a great view. We placed our order which the waitress highly recommended the sashimi. Then the servers arrive with our dinners before our sashimi. She forgot. My filet which was the special of the night was not cooked. I could not even cut through the steak. I sent it back which I never do. The whole feel of dinner was not good. My friend told me that it felt like you're in a lobby ,he was right. I heard they are closing this location and moving to Wailuku.

We got a terrific table for two right at the railing. The metal chairs were really uncomfortable, just two tight and bruising and we were able to change for more comfortable wooden chairs. We had a dry saki to drink and after some testing we got a really great dry one which we enjoyed. The menu is great, we tried three dishes each was really creative and tasty. One was an ahi in the raw in a really interesting and tasty sauce made of coconut oil and other goodies. We had a pasta dish with pork belly, and another as well. Great desert and expression. Recommend sharing the dishes. We plan to go back during the rest of our stay. Make a reservation, if not staying at the Marriott use bell captain barking and have Migrant endorse you parking ticket. Just for a tip you can handle parking. They may need a few more folks to serve customers...we sensed an overload. Different waiters around is described the same dishes so differently...could be better.

The service was great and the food average. The menu is family style and smaller portions. We prefer the chicken and waffles after ordering two mains and an app. The chicken and waffles were probably the worst thing I've had in a while. The flavor a used were all wrong and the waffle was soggy and bitter. Good place to take the kids but just like most hotel eateries it's glorified wedding reception food.

We love Sheldon and we love Migrant. We were there twice in our eight days, and we tried a number of items from the somewhat limited menu. It certainly helps to like pork, and I do. Beware, the onion soup noodle dish is appropriate for a very hearty appetite. The pork rind that they bring initially may have limited appeal, but the rest of the meal is just fantastic!

We have had chef Sheldons food before and typically his food is great. Our favorite dish was the Korean fried chicken and waffles, delicious! Unfortunately the cocktails we flavorless and poorly presented. The street corn was bland unevenly seasoned, oyster shoots were watery, garlic noodles smelled great but had no flavor and the Brussel sprouts were bland. Perhaps chef was away that night?

We were able at the last minute to get a reservation and had a great seat by the railing overlooking the ocean. The menu was totally original, but not in an inaccessible way. The only way we could narrow down what to order was with the help of our server, Mariah, who was really knowledgeable and gave excellent suggestions on drinks and food. My husband and I were in Maui for a 10 dinners and this was our best overall meal.
