Lanai is a little hard to get to, and Lanai City is not exactly a metropolis, but if you find yourself on the island, you MUST try this place. You can get to Lanai from Maui on the Expeditions Ferry from Lahaina harbor. We had heard of their fresh pastries, but you need to try one of their apple (or... More

Although whole Lanai was on that beautiful Sunday more than quiet, Blue Ginger Cafe was really nice surprise. We had a great meal served by friendly staff. Worth to visit as the island itself.

Ate here late evening on a Friday because all other restaurants were closed. Food was pretty good, around $15 a plate, portions were big.

Good food, but not a lot of vegetarian options if that's something you're looking for. Very relaxed and casual atmosphere with friendly staff.

Everyone in our group felt that it wasn't as good as other reviews. But not bad. Some meals were cold.

We were staying at the Hotel Lanai and wanted dinner. We walked to town. We had a great dinner of Kalua pork with cabbage and onions. It was fresh and tasted like a mother cooked it for her family. Delicious!

I had the maui burger and it was good. The pastries were yummy too. My husband has the fish and chips and they were a little too much breading.

Had a wonderful dinner at Blue Ginger. The place doesn't look like much, but the food is served and cooked with love. Generous portions at reasonable prices. Try Blue a Ginger!
