Really great Thai food, great selection and a nice outdoor type setting. Service was a little slow, but not different from most places I've been in Hawaii. Definitely recommend this place, especially if you're staying in this part of Maui!

Very good, fresh, and really authentic thai food. Although we came ten minutes before closing time the owner was very friendly and polite. The coconut vegetable soup tasted better than in many places in Thailand itself. The papaya salad was delicous and my beef in thai basil sauce was in one word:PERFECT!

This is the worst Thai food we ever had. No taste at all! The authentic Thai food should be spicy, or sour or with fish sauce taste. We went there because the review say it's good but very very disappointed. With such food quality, it's definitely overpriced. I am surprised Thai Sa-On Restaurant in Calgary is way better than this... More

We dropped by as we were looking for parking. The place is quaint from the outside but inside its a whole different level. The patio area is beautiful with a nice breeze that makes eating here enjoyable. The food was really good. I had the Garlic Fish and it was amazing with a nice strong spicyness to it. The stick...

We have been visiting Saeng's for lunch for 15+ years. With each visit we have introduced many family and friends to this delicious place for lunch. This time I had Green Curry with chicken and brown rice. My husband loved his Panang Curry with chicken. Cousins had Pad Thai and a Thai Chicken Curry. I tasted all of them...topped off... More
