Had the hummus and pupu platter. Tasted off. My wife who is a ice tea junkie couldn't even drink half a glass. Server couldn't care less we were there. Took some friends with us for first and last time.

Only had breakfast here. They do great smoothies and the Mambo breakfast burrito is very tasty. Friendly service, laid back atmosphere.

We were in Paia looking around and wanted to get lunch. Cafe Mambo was not super crowded. So we stopped in. I had the Kalua Pork special lunch, which was served with rice and a local mixed green salad. It was really very tasty. Service was quick and friendly. I would definitely recommend stopping in here for a meal.

Wonderful day to visit zpaia and Cafe Mambo. They prepared a delectable crispy duck salad that was a perfect lunch portion and very flavorful. Great service rounded out the whole experience.

Had a burger here one balmy evening in March with my partner. We were over from Scotland for three weeks and I have to say this was one of the two best burgers I had on the island. Recommended...

Other then the tuna cones at Spago's, the crispy duck fajitas were the best thing that I ate during my trip to Maui! It will definitely be on my list of places to eat when I go back next year!

Had the "crispy duck" burger which was awesome....they also offer the crispy duck on a salad or with fajitas. The fish burger was fresh mahi mahi with a citrus sauce and... More

So, yeah, a cool place in the cool town of Paia, great service, fun people watching, and totally average food. Don't go for the food, do go for the atmosphere.
