I absolutely adore this restaurant. Its close to home and has great food and atmosphere. Their coconut chicken curry soup keeps me coming back as well as the fried banana dessert. Love this place!

Yes I appreciate the zen fountain sound, but the last couple of times I've been in there is no music for ambiance. Most importantly music is to keep my conversation and that of other guests indiscernible so that all may enjoy. Its good Thai food. Though probably nothing notable compared to what any major city has to offer. Wailuku is... More

This restaurant is a true "find". It's on a back road in Wailuku, and to the causal passer-by, it's not even obvious that there is a wonderful Thai restaurant inside. The dining area is a luscious garden with a soothing water feature. Big comfy booths rim part of the room. The food is delicious. For our first visit, we were... More

From the outside, Saeng's is at best plain, perhaps even a bit shabby. Enough so that we passed it by on a walking search for dinner. Luckily for us, we decided to peek inside the next evening. Amazing! The interior features a large covered courtyard garden repeat with a charming pond and fountain. And even better, the food is excellent.... More

My husband and I were on our way back to the airport (June 23, 2014) to head home and decided that some Thai food sounded good. I checked our Maui Revealed book and found Saeng's. We plugged the address into our GPS and it led us straight to their door. Parking was in their lot--convenient and easy. This is a... More

We visit this place year after year when in Maui. Casual, generous portions, great flavors and always a hit with friends. On our last visit we had green curry with chicken and Panang curry with chicken! We usually have more of a variety, but there were just two of us on a curry mission! We will be back!

the staff were friendly, the place is quiet and the best spot to have cooked food after 11 days of outdoor. I had the tom yum soup and fried bananas with ice cream. More than once. So I'd recommend to eat here.

I came here to try a different Thai restaurant and out of the ones in Kahului, Kihei, and Lahaina, this one is the worst. While the prices are about the same as the others, the food here is poor. The pad thai had no flavor, was soupy, and didn't have any spiciness to it. The staff, while nice, disappeared at... More

I really love this place. It's such a nice environment to sit and eat. It makes me feel like I'm in Asia, and it's rarely busy. Sometimes is just me and my date. The Food is delicious and served piping hot. Just be careful not to spill it on your lap like I did. My leg was red for days:(... More
