Pork tonkatsu was fantastic. BBQ ribs were amazing, fall off the bone. Portion size was good, dishes were the right size to share but not too big.

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.

Great place to catch the beautiful Maui sunset. Food was good, however the portions were very small and quite pricey. I guess that's expected in a restaurant located in a very lovely resort.

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.

Have dined at Migrant several times. This was not a good experience! Horrible service, mediocre food improperly prepared, too many excuses. Good thing it's closing.

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.

Sophisticated enough menu to thrill the adults, but enough tame things in the menu that I didn't getncomants from my kids. Gorgeous sunset view for our visit. Unobtrusive but responsive waitstaff. One of our Maui highlights.

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.
