Service was great. Food was inconsistent. A burger was very over cooked and wings we just ok.. Pasta and lobster special was really good. Cocktails were great. Would try again sometime but this was not a memorable meal.

Our server Auntie Sharon was a hoot. She was friendly and helpful. Saimin was so-so. Fish and chips were good. Kids burger was good. The star of the dinner was the strawberry pie and pumpkin cream pie. Good value compared to other Laihina area restaurants.

We had a lovely table with a view to the beach walk and the water. During our visit, one of the first whales of the 2021-2022 season was spotted, and we greatly enjoyed watching it. Our server was delightful and attentive. The food and the mai tais were delicious. The bonus for us is that our daughter with Celiac was able to eat safely without getting sick.

Such a nice restaurant and such friendly staff.. My Thai is the best in Maui!! We also had fish and chips and fish sandwich both were outstanding. Fish and chips specially stood out as it was better than the one i had in London and better than Gordon Ramsey fish and chips too

My husband and I enjoyed our Thanksgiving lunch here at Monkeypod. I especially loved the Margherita pizza because the dough was so soft and chewy. The local beers were refreshing and they went perfectly with the ocean view from the outdoor table we were seated at. I would definitely go again if I take another trip to Maui!

The restaurant itself is in an amazing location and the service was great! The food is fair. Some of their own flavors of ketchup and perhaps pizza sauce aren’t the best if you’re traveling with kids.

Makayla was our waitress and she was nothing but kind and wonderful throughout our meal! Her recommendations were on point!! My husband and I both said this was the best meal we had during our time in Kaanapali beach. Absolutely loved the poke tacos-we asked a fourth…IT WAS WELL WORTH IT! the food is outstanding! My husband had the tuna steak and I had the pumpkin squash ravioli-unreal. Everything is farm to table and you can really taste the quality and freshness. Run to monkeypods-it’s AMAZING!!!

As usual everything was excellent. We were with a big group with three separate reservations. But they made sure that we all could seat together. They were very accommodating especially during this pandemic restrictions.

Very nice staff and beautiful place to have dinner. I ordered the fish Tavos with the sauce on the side because it was spicy. It was super spicy so we ordered mango salsa and it made it taste better. The drinks were really good and nice presentation.

We had an amazing time at Monkeypod! Our server was fantastic and gave us excellent recommendations. We had the pumpkin ravioli, poke tacos, fish and chips, and fish sandwich. Everything is a 10/10 and we’d come back. My husband said the mai tai’s were the best he’s ever had. The lilikoi foam on top is 🤯

Never disappointed at Monkeyood. Hard to get in this visit as it’s really busy now with the reduced capacity. Food was delicious as were the cocktails. We will be back!

The menu hasn’t changed in a while, the food is good but not a lot of variety and prices were a bit steep. Our server wasnt great, which doesn’t help have a good experience.

The hostess and the Mai tai was great! But the service and food definitely did not live up to the hype. Glad we crossed it off the list but wouldn’t go back.
