“Excellent food at very reasonable price.Great sushi bar in early afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

On North side of Dairy road in a little strip mall, behind a gas station. Looks questionable from outside but try it...great Fish & Chips, excellent cold beer selection, Hawaiin pulled pork, and then late afternoon they open the sushi bar which is outstanding with creative rolls. in Poynt it also shows up as Ren's Sushi bar, but the only signage on the outside is Wow Wee. The two girls serving are very friendly and helpful, as are the guys on the sushi counter.

“Featured on Drinking Made Easy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

This Kava bar was featured on Drinking Made Easy. They drank six cups of kava tea each. I drank two cups and that was plenty to feel the effects of the kava root. It numbs your mouth and makes you feel relaxed but it only lasts for about 15-30 minutes long so you are good to drive when you leave. It's not very tasty, though.

The food was typical restaurant bar food. The french fries are really good. I read on other reviews that the sushi was really great but it wasn't available yet when we showed up for lunch at 11am on a Tuesday. It's kind of a dive bar but it's worth the visit to try to kava tea. They are also known for their home-made chocolate bars (one of which has kava in it).

“A Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We had time to kill before our flight out and were looking for something other than fast food so we took a chance on Wow Wee MauiKava Bar and Grill. I must say I was peasantly surprised. I had a seafood wrap which was tasty although the fries were blah. The sushi looked fantastic although I am not a sushi fan. Prices were very reasonable. I would recommend .

“Good Stop near Airport”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

Need a stop for food before your flight or after landing? Got kids? This one is a decent stop-Good food. Not GREAT, but good. Their sushi was tasty and they had some interesting rolls...fresh, tasty ingredients. Preparation was a little sloppy, but it was still very good : ) The burgers for the kids were huge! The chicken fingers are NOT RECOMMENDED. They were served still wet from grease and I actually had to dry them off. Deep fried food doesn't need to be and shouldn't be GREASY. The bathrooms were a problem. You have to go out into the strip mall and across the parking lot with a gas station style key. The service was nice but a little slow.
