Hidden gem!

Never really understood how a Chinese restaurant could survive in Maui. With so many food choices based on the pacific rim foods, the China boat stays to traditional Chinese food. I literally lived next door and would eat here frequently. The place looks run down from the outside and the indoor decor is "OLD" , but the food is really... More

This is one of the best values on Maui and the food is excellent. The curry is exceptional. We always visit here when we are in Maui. It is very convenient in the Kasnapali area.

I am not a big Chinese food fan, but my kids love it. They think the China Boat is the BEST! And I have to agree the service was good and the food was good. It's been in business for years and years so that has to say something- they are doing something right. Good for take out to the... More

The reviews seemed good so we ordered take out as we wanted to eat in our condo. The personnel were never friendly or warm starting from the phone order to pickup. This situation is of course different from dining in. However, we were quite surprised with the lack of any attempt to be pleasant. As for the food, we had... More

kind of expensive for Chinese and you have to pay $1 extra to add rice but it was well worth it. Great portion sizes and very tasty!

Sometimes I wonder how a restaurant doesn't fair better or worse on TA. But this time, it's probably about right. 197 of 757 restaurants. That's about where we would place it. Very run of the mill Chinese food.

Came here on the recommendation of people staying at the Westin. Can't imagine why they liked the place enough to recommend it. Definitely low end casual. Wait staff dressed in tee shirts. Decor old & tired. Food just like any Ma & Pa Chinese restaurant on the mainland. There at least 3 better ones in my hometown of Great Falls,... More
