“Da Kitchen Never Disappoints!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We've eaten here 4 times during our Maui visits and have tried most items on the menu. Everything is super tasty and served in generous portions. The Kalua Pork and burgers are favorites. This is one of the best values on the island IMO - there are not many places where you can feed the family a quality dinner for under $60.

“Disgusting, cheap, fatty food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We decided to eat at Da Kitchen for one of the few nights we ate out on our honeymoon to Maui. In our travel guide book it was a 'top choice' and the review was incredibly positive. What we found was cheap, fatty, disgusting food served in polystyrene trays and a takeaway atmosphere. We should have turned around as soon as we walked in but we were willing to give a place with rave reviews a try, despite the tacky setting. Unfortunately the food, when it arrived, was greasy and tasted horrible so we left after a few mouthfuls. We were very disappointed and felt we had wasted a meal out here. We would definitely not recommend eating at Da Kitchen - there are many more far nicer places to eat in Kihei.

“Great Fast Food Option”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I had never been to Da Kitchen prior to our June visit to Maui. I loved it though and will definitely go back. We had the Chow Fun beef noodles and the Chicken Katsu with rice. Our bellies were full when we left and took leftovers back to our condo. The beef noodles were so good that we ordered another plate to take back for a nighttime snack. There is a charge for soda refills. The staff was great on our visit.

“Disappointing....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Given the many excellent reviews I came here prepared to be wowed. Ate a few bites of my teriyaki chicken dish and left the rest. Chicken was fatty and bordering on flavorless. Won't be returning.

“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

If you want to get local food from one of the few places in Kihei that really serves it in the way that you get in Honolulu and on Oahu, then Da Kitchen is the place. Seems non-descript in the strip mall that its located in, but food is good and plentiful, and it tastes straightforward and unpretentious--not like the expensive restaurant in the same mall that takes the local plate and makes it expensive haute cuisine. Informal and relaxed for breakfast and lunch. Highly recommended.
