“Dry Saimin!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

So ono we went 2x. To drive from the west side to Wailuku it has to be worth the trip, to do it 2x for noodles it has to be awesome. We love noodles of all kinds and this is a unique style and flavor. It is a regular stop for us in Maui

“Another highly recommended letdown”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

I don't know why this place is so special? Another disappointing local establishment that is highly recommended but is hard to find parking here and they do have lines outside but it is not worth thw wait. There is better noodles at Zippys and my parents' house! Why not clean up this place? The outside is less of an eyesore than the inside. It is obviously a mom and pop type place but lacked the family friendly vibe. As a local I could sense the racial tension inhibited towards toursts eating there and unless you are a regular patron you are gonna be treated like an outsider just like those tourists. Just how long have those pastries been sitting in there? Saw flies in there!

“Good basic food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

This is what you think of when you think of a family, neighborhood place... except that it's located in an industrial park. Whe you get in there, it'll be mostly friendly locals with nothing fancy but good food at resonable prices. Saimin noodle soup is the star of the menu but for breakfast you can get all the usual items.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Visitors on Maui are always looking to try a restaurant with a local feel when they come to Maui. Sam Sato's definitely has that going for it.
