Hawaiian/Chinese hole in the wall

Even though it is a mixed plate place, I would definitely stay on the Chinese food side of the menu. The cake noodle with crispy chicken was impressive. I would return to try more of the chinese food there.

Although atmosphere lacking this is true authentic food. The mixed plates are large and very tasty. The decor is limited with christmas napkins on tables, yet the staff is nice and a mom and pop type cooking place. Comfort food here. Great variety and good prices.

Mom and pop operation north of Lahaina... seats only 16 people inside yet has well over 125 items on the menu... excellent tasting, generous proportions and the most economical prices we have found on Maui. Hamburger plane (includes soda and fries) for less than $7. Mixed plates for $10-$15... I had huge bowl of teriyaki chicken noodle soup... must have... More

A nice small café in the Honokawaii neighborhood. Tables for four with maximum eat-in capacity for 16. No AC on an extremely hot day, but once we settled in we were quite comfortable via ice water! The food was fantastic and inexpensive. I highly recommend the barbecue chicken salad, but their is a huge selection of Chinese and island barbecue.... More

Grab some food here, the menu has a large selection of local favorites and other mixed plate options, they even had cheeseburgers available for our young picky eater.

Definitely a place to come! Excellent food...by far our best meal in 10 days and we went to some other highly rated places. (It was also probably the cheapest). We had 3 dishes and an appie and it was more than enough food for our family. A place you would probably pass by, but give it. It is definitely worth... More

Ono Kau Kau is a hidden jewel! The food is consistently high quality. You can eat in or take to go. The Garlic Ahi is awesome! Highly recommend!

We've seen this place for years but never tried it. We gave it a shot this year and had a great visit. It's not big at all but when we went it was empty. The prices are great. There really isn't any atmosphere. My wife had Broccoli Beef/ BBQ Chicken and I had a Ham Omelette. Everything was super. It's... More

Has all the typical mixed plate classics but also some interesting dishes like Teriyaki Misubi and Katsu Misubi. Only has a couple tables as most people seem to order to go. There is a parking lot which it shares with a lemon aide stand and "Teppanyaki-to-go" Feed a large group of 11. All agreed the food was excellent but maybe... More

Its hard to find good food and reasonably priced food in Maui. The restaurant is on the beach in a funky shack atmosphere. I had the dirty banana drink, I liked it. I had the lava flow and didn't care for it that much. Most all of the food is good. Just go and experiment.
