Description: In the early days of the sugar plantations, lunch was a simple affair. Plantation workers gathered in the fields for their mid-day meal. The Japanese laborers would bring teriyaki beef with rice and pickled vegetables. Seated next to them might be their Filipino neighbors with the traditional dish adobo or perhaps a pork or chicken stew. The Koreans had their kalbi or marinated ribs and the Chinese a rice noodle and vegetable dish called chow fun. Hawaiians were known for their kalua pig, roasted in an underground oven called an imu. It wasn't long before they began to share their foods with one another and the "mixed plate" was born. Aloha Mixed Plate features true "Local" traditional plate lunches with open air seating directly on the ccean. We are open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

“Poi, roast pork and coconut rice FTW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

A taste of Hawai'i all on one plate. You eat outside under the trees - and it is dirt cheap, but the food is simply outstanding! Staff is good at recommending stuff and describing it to you and the kitchen is uber-fast! If you visit Maui, GO HERE!

“Popular restaurant that is worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

The restaurant is located behind Lahaina Cannery Mall and usually have a long line of people waiting, so it is best to go early before 5:30pm. My wife and I only waited about 5 minutes before we were seated and given a menu in the outdoor restaurant. We ordered the "Uncle Louie's Chow Fun"($5.95) and the "Aloha Mixed Plate Special" that consists of shoyu chicken, beef teriyaki, fish, 2 scoops of rice and macaroni salad. The Aloha Mixed Plate Special is a very large order and priced at $12.95 only. The total for the dinner with drinks came out to be about $25.00 for two persons and everything was freshly cooked and prompt in service too.

“Great Food and Views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Had a get together at Aloha Mixed Plate. The Staff was accommodating. We got there before everyone & they set up a table of 8. Only 5 of us showed up. The waithelp asked if they could have their end table back. (That was nice of them to ask)! The food was great and prices were ok, better than the resort prices. We were enjoying the views of the water and the boats near Mala Wharf. But the Lahaina heat was stifling. Too bad, we would have ordered more food and drinks. Go early and have your meal there. My other 3 party members did. Now we know!

“Average mixed plate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Restaurant is in a nice setting with lots of freeparking-big deal in Lahaina. Food was just average-several meat dishes with rice and mac salad. Prices are very reasonable. If you want to have simple, but not exceptional, mixed plate at cheap (for Lahaina) cost- you should certainly give this a try.
