This is our family's go to every trip. We always pick up a chicken pineapple fried rice along with a shrimp pineapple fried rice. We stay up in Kahana, and there are for adults and three kids. Finding a family style portion can be a tricky thing. Not at the Thai Chef. And the spring rolls are very good also.... More

We always enjoy Thai Chef every year when we come to Maui. Thai iced tea is excellent. I love the summer rolls; fresh veggies with a delectable dipping sauce. Chicken satay is excellent, and my husband loves their pineapple fried rice. Service has always been friendly and efficient. For some people, parking seems to be a problem, but we just... More

A small plea hidden in a shopping center behind front street. Once you find 858 Front Street head in the back contains a shopping center with the post office. The food is very good and reasonably priced for a restaurant on front street. There are a variety of curries, vegetable and Thai dishes. We had the yellow curry and the... More

I love Thai food and eat it frequently back home (Seattle). I was not impressed with our take-out meal from Thai Chef. The yellow curry was bland and tasted like lightly seasoned coconut milk - curry should have a potent curry flavor, shouldn't it? The chicken pad Thai was decent, but also fell short on the flavor scale and didn't... More

How can a small, family owned restaurant located in a strip mall area be a favorite of locals and vacationers? It doesn't seem to advertise so only through word of mouth does it achieve such high ratings. Bring your own bottle of wine and enjoy the tastiest of Thai foods with friendly Thai service. Don't forget the homemade coconut ice... More

Couldn't get a table for our second visit to Star Noodle this trip but staff recommended Thai Chef...... great recommendation. Little family run (herbs grown at their home) operation with perhaps 30 seats. Lots of great curries, nice presentation, bring your own beer/wine, friendly staff, very reasonably priced. We will definitely return on our next visit

We always do take out and eat out on our private Lanai over looking the ocean. The food at the Thai Chef is excellent - has all the right Thai spice blends and exceptional currie dishes. The staff is friendly and the wait for take out is only 20 minutes - always lots to explore on Front Street while you... More

This was our first stop in Maui. We didn't realize it was just a tiny spot with very minutes seating. We got lucky and only had to wait about 5 minutes. We ordered the Pad Thai and it was pretty good. Prices were on the higher side $$.

We couldn't recommend Thai Chef more highly! The food was delicious and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Huge thanks to Shan for her suggestions and welcome. Spring Rolls (the best we've ever had in our lives!!) and Pad Thai are winners. Also, worth mentioning that Thai Chef allows BYOB. We had a wonderful meal and experience here and... More
