Not What You Expect!

Great Indian curry wraps, great crepes! Definitely didn't expect that in the middle of a Hawaiin beach town. Pretty sizable portions. Very sweet outdoor seating section. Servers are pretty indifferent to your existence, but just enjoy the curry wraps and food unlike any other place nearby.

I have been here twice on 2 separate trips. It is great food. Don't be in a hurry the service can be slow. he crepes are fantastic and it has a funky hippie organic vibe to the place. Our service was slow this time and our waiter was walking out at the end of her shift and didn't tend to... More

My husband and I stopped at this small Meditteranean cafe for a couple drinks and pita chips and hummus. We ended up ordering extra pita chips as there was so much hummus. Absolutely delicious! Open air seating. Definitely worth a stop!

I love this place and actually miss it when they didn't provide wine and you could bring your own. That said, this is a great place and full of locals and goodness. We've spent many a night here with friends enjoying their wonderful food. I'd recommend this for any visitor. And if you see Phil selling his beautiful jewelly take... More

Visited Paia for lunch after a quick visit to the Surfing Dairy Goat farm and we enjoyed this little town, lots of interesting shops to explore. Cafe Des Amis was recommended by one of the shop owners and our party of five really enjoyed the fish curry here, generous portions of fish, a good price and a very agreeable waitress,... More

I wish I could give this place more than 5 stars. I ate here 3 times during the week I spent in Maui, and loved absolutely everything I had. Here is this list, and I highly recommend them all: breakfast crepe with organic scrambled eggs, tomatoes and gruyère cheese served with spring mix side salad; curry wrap with shrimp, coconut...

Incredible crepes! Get both the sweet and savory & share - they're delicious and go well with their excellent coffee...

If you are planning to go Hana then you must stop in Paia and explore. This cafe is amazing. Nice Indian food and other things. You can pack the food as you won't be able to find restro in Hana.

They advertise that they serve Mediterranean and Indian food. At first I thought, maybe not a good choice because my past experience of restaurants like this is that you end up with mediocre food, however their food was excellent for its price range. There were 4 of us X 2 visits and everyone enjoyed their meal. Excellent variety. Have a... More

I really want to like this place more. I love the decor and it's outdoor setting. Service is pretty good. Food though tasty is average to me. I have tried the chicken curry which was ok and the brie and apple crepe. Not to say I didn't enjoy these dishes but they weren't stellar.
