Went to to China Boat after a long, long day of sightseeing. Haleakala and Road to Hana. After 15 hours in the car we didn't want to think. Down the street from our condo was this little oasis. Nothing to look at from the outside but the reviews we read made our decision. We sat on the patio under white... More

We didn't have reservations anywhere and were told we might have to wait awhile for seating, so when we passed this restaurant and were hungry and tired, we decided to give it a try and were very glad we did. The family that runs the restaurant is very nice. There was a local couple who mentioned that they drive a... More

OK, it's China Boat. Found this place on our first trip to Maui 9 years ago. We liked it then, and it's still good. Not great, just good Chinese food. Got seated, served, and we're done in less than 45 minutes. Really liked the Kung Pao Chicken and the Mongolian Beef. Plenty to eat and we were full when we... More

Its a scary looking place but the food was good. I've had better Chinese food. Very interesting area to have a food establishment I felt like I was in the wrong place at first.

If you are in upper West Maui, and crave Chinese, this is your best option and it is very good. The food is very good, service very good, ambiance very good, very affordable, and plenty of parking. I live in Maui, where there are a lot of terrific places to eat, and my wife and I come here often. Try... More

we stop here as it was close to our resort and we were in the mood for some Chinese food. It is a small restaurant but we were greeted by a wonderful server and met the owner as well. We enjoyed a delicious lunch. It is reasonably priced for the area which made this a great find - we would... More

We randomly stopped here after attempting to go to gazebo. Gazebo hag a huge line out the door so we headed back to our condo, and randomly saw this place along the way. We were hungry so decided to stop. We enjoyed this place a lot, it was quiet, and had a clean patio area surrounded by gardens. All of... More

We ate at the China boat restaurant during our visit to Maui. Both my husband and I had a wonderful lunch, thoroughly enjoyed. Food very good, nice atmosphere! Would eat here again if visiting Maui.

We walked here from the condo 1/2 block away, it was about 8:00 pm and we were one of 2 or 3 parties at the place. They have apparently won best of Maui in 2012 and 2013 according to the magazine reprints posted here, and I predict they will retain the crown in 2014. All the dishes were extremely tasty,... More
