Thai Delight

Very nice atmosphere and very good food for the price. Very nice people run it- friendly local place. Great seafood curry. I have moved to Maui and this is one of my favorite hangouts!

We dropped by as we were looking for parking. The place is quaint from the outside but inside its a whole different level. The patio area is beautiful with a nice breeze that makes eating here enjoyable. The food was really good. I had the Garlic Fish and it was amazing with a nice strong spicyness to it. The stick...

We have been visiting Saeng's for lunch for 15+ years. With each visit we have introduced many family and friends to this delicious place for lunch. This time I had Green Curry with chicken and brown rice. My husband loved his Panang Curry with chicken. Cousins had Pad Thai and a Thai Chicken Curry. I tasted all of them...topped off... More

We always get Saeng's to go and bring it home, it's some of my family's favorite Thai food! The Chicken Pad Thai is so good! The staff is friendly over the phone and when we go in to pick it up... Also, the order is always correct. Check them out!

I've had pad thai from restaurants all over the US and even in Europe. It's become a mainstream standard dish and is usually a safe bet anywhere. Unfortunately, the pad thai here was incredibly vinegary and ultimately inedible. After I long day of sightseeing, I was very tired so I just ordered the pad thai to-go and brought it back... More

Excellent Thai food. Service is a little slow as if they have a small kitchen, but the food is excellent. Prices are reasonable and recommend this restaurant to anyone who seeks Thai food on the island.

Seems to be off the tourist path, which is good. Food was delicious. We ordered 4 items, all as good as any Thai food I've had before and large portions. Comments about waitress not coming back to check on you, get drink refills, etc, are accurate, but wasn't a problem for us. Atmosphere is cozy and clean. Not sure about... More

We ordered the garlic fish and chicken and shrimp Phad Thai. Both dishes were very very good but not on the large side. The sauce on the garlic fish was wow! Service was on the slow side but very friendly. They seem to only have one waiter. Seating area is very quaint and comfortable. Enjoyed the setting.

Saeng's has been one of my local favorites sine I discovered it 9 years ago. The atmosphere is excellent, and the food usually very good. But last night the chief was off. My favorite Masaman Curry tasted and looked watered down and my friends we not totally happy with their meals either. I hope that this is not a new... More

Been coming to Saeng's for years! Great Thai food at affordable prices! They are friendly and have a nice inner courtyard seating. Togo is no problem as well!
