“Private chef dinner”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We were visiting Maui with another couple and we wanted to do something special for their 25th anniversary. CJ and his wife arrived at our condo promptly at 5:00p.m. for a surprise dinner we will never forget! We started our night down at the pool with our pupus and drinks. We then went up to the condo for the most beautiful and delicious 4 course dinner ever. They decorated the table and had music in the background. They food was out of this world,and the service was like lifestyles of the rich and famous! CJ and his wife were the nicest people and we could have talked to them all night! If you are looking to do something special to celebrate a special occasion, or just because, call CJ and Comfort Zone catering for a night you will always remember.

“A Hidden Gem to save some $$$”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

My Wife and I stayed at the Sheraton for our honeymoon and got absolutely nailed by room service one night ($60) and breakfast the next morning ($60). We're slightly frugal travelers so something had to change! The next day we walked to the Fairway shops at Kaanapali to get snorkel gear and were recommended Cj's and give a 1/2 off coupon. We went to CJ's and were REALLY impressed with the food... and left with a sub-$30 bill! We ended up coming here for breakfast and lunch two different days and were never left disappointed. Would come many more times in the future.

“Great find for economic meals in Maui”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We really liked CJ's. We were able to get quality sandwiches and dinners at very reasonable prices. Something that is hard to find in Maui. The food was very fresh. The service was average, but at a deli not a must to have great service.

“Romantic Anniversary Dinner”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I was looking for someone who could put together a last-minute private dinner for my husband and I for our anniversary within my budget. The concierge put me in touch with Christian, CJ's owner. He was AWESOME. He was so nice on the phone when we spoke and he planned out a very nice menu. He personally delivered it to our condo down the road and set up our table and place settings. He prepared an individualized plate of appetizers for us to take with us to the beach to enjoy the sunset and some champagne before heading back to our room for the main course and dessert.
The food was phenomenal! He prepared enough to feed 5 people. Needless to say we had leftovers for a couple of days.
He followed-up with me a couple of days later to see how everything was. I could not have asked for better hospitality.
I would highly recommend using his catering service or visiting CJ's Deli & Diner for a great meal!
Thank you Christian for making our anniversary so special, I'm truly grateful :)

“Good Value”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

In the Fairway Shops at Kaanapali, CJ's is located in the middle of the small strip center. A very casual atmosphere awaits you with wooden booths & a menu on the wall above the order counter that stretches across the entire length of the restaurant. Pick up one of the written menus to study before you order. Orders are placed at the counter & they call you when your food is ready. Self serve drinks. Ham/cheese wrap served hot & was delicious. Potato salad came with it & was tasty. Fries were good too. Tuna is very meaty & delicious as well. Pineapple slaw had a bit too much liquid & the whole wheat bread was a little dry. Order takers behind the counter were friendly. Be sure to watch your bill, especially for a charge called Super Size for $3.00, which we ended up assuming was for the fries. We would go again & order different items this time just for the variety.
