This place was right up the street from our rental condo, but we wanted to stay in, so we ordered delivery. Really wish we had gone to the restaurant itself. The food was really good, and there were some really unique menu options we'd never tried before. I ordered the Kung Pao Squid, and it was really good, but probably... More

China Boat was right across from our condo so we walked over one night for dinner. They light the whole place up with twinkle lights. We ate on the patio, enjoying the island breezes, the delicious food and a magical Maui night.

Remember when having something exotic meant going out for Chinese? No, I'm not talking chop suey. That's a little too far back! Fast forward a bit until words like Szechwan and Hunan appear on the screen and you'll get the picture. That was a time when suburbia was being introduced to the possibilities when regional Chinese cuisine is prepared using... More

First time we saw this place- I thought, not a chance. Well, small world, we ended up buying a condo at Pohailani which is across the street. So, after a little research, we ordered food to go. As a few people stated - it never looks very busy inside - DON'T let that stop you. They do a HUGE amount... More

we went based on other reviews for dinner and got there around 5:30pm and were the only ones in the restaurant for a little while, then several more people filtered in. We were a bit worried at first being the only ones. The food was really good and the service attentive. I had the 3 ingredient special (chicken, shrimp and... More

Never did see what any one saw in this place. It is out of the way and the food it not good. When we were there it was practically empty which should have told us some thing!

Excellent and friendly service. Meals were very good and flavorful but they don’t know how to make a Mai Tai (might have used Pog; a local fruit-like mix sold in the markets). We would go back again.

Staying right down the road, we stopped here for take out lunch. The women running it were so nice and very patient when we changed our whole order after seeing their lunch specials. Delicious food, great deal on the specials and nice portions. They also made us some killer mai tais while we waited. Good times...

We ate here several times over 10 years ago. We remembered it as being a so so interior but the food was always okay. We asked the concierge at the Westin to recommend one if the three Chinese restaurants we threw out at him, he said china boat. On the way out we asked another concierge and again china boat....
