Our food choices were perfectly prepared, tasty, beautifully presented, and the service was prompt. We noted that the sushi bar was very well attended, so suspect that it is well known locally

My wife and I look for a Korean restaurant each time we vacation in a new place. Las Vegas, New York, DC and San Francisco to name a few were good but Isana was by far the best. May have been better than I had while in Korea. I recommend this place to exmilitary and current who want to remember... More

If you are looking for Korean table cooking, this is the place. This is our go to restaurant for bulgogi whenever we are in Maui. The marinade they use on their beef is amazing and quite addictive. And all the kimchi side dishes make this a perfect meal.

While living on Maui, we stopped in a few times to grab a bite at the sushi bar, which was excellent. On our last visit, my son commented that something didn't taste right and that evening, he didn't feel well. We were sad about it, but we couldn't go back.

Very nice Korean place in Kihei, near Wailea. Some of the best bulgogi I've had, made with high quality beef. Nice quiet place and a welcome change of pace from other crowded Maui eateries.

Andy, the Sushi Chef, is expert in preparation and extremely knowledgeable about the fish he serves. We sat at the sushi bar our first and our last nights in Maui, and were royally served. Just a few steps from the Sunseeker Resort where we stayed. Recommended by the Sunseeker staff. A Find!

Beautiful location right across from water but then you walk in and it is a bit rundown. We went on the recommendation of our fishing captain from a trip we went on that day. He said they had the best sushi in Maui and he was right. We ordered several sushi options and our kids ordered the korean grill style... More

Our mainland family came to visit, so we all went to Isana for dinner. The service was great, the ocean view and sunset, beautiful, and the food was delicious. Scrumptious appetizers of sushi and seafood, super size servings of steak, chicken and veggies served Yakiniku style and even a little ice cream for dessert. We went home happy and full!

Thank elsband
