“Five star fish and chips.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Wife and I love our fish and chips and have enjoyed this simple meal in many places. Well the simple meal of fish and chips (coleslaw included) is as good as we have enjoyed just about anywhere in the world on our travels. This place is all about the food, not the service or setting just the food and it was good. Highly recommended.

“It's a staple visit when visiting Maui!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

The lineups are always long at Paia's fish market, but that just tells me that the fish is always fresh! Good luck fining a seat inside, but as long as you take your fish burger to go, you can always find a bench somewhere outside. I ate the mahi mahi burger with coleslaw and it was delicious, messy, and quite big! The crowd is a good mixture of surfers, locals and pale tourists. Good vibe!

“Busy and noisy but worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Fresh fish tacos and excellent coleslaw. Communal tables. Friendly place. Not too clean, but okay. The setting is downscale. The neighborhood is fabulous. Parking is, alas, quasi impossible, except late at night (after 7:30 p.m.). Noisy.

“Wouldn't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

A must visit every year. It is small with family style seating and fun making new friends. The food is great highly recommend the Mahdi Mahdi fish and chips and fish tacos. Finish with a walk around the quaint Praia town. Park in the free lot at the entrance to town.

“Love the Fish tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Drove over for dinner and loved the fish tacos. Thought the rice was too spicy. Fun place where you sit family style and order and pick up your food at the counter.
