“Good grub for before flight”
Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

Stopped here before our flight. Good food, waitress/bartender was great. There are no bathrooms inside the actual establishment, must take a large wooden spoon with bathroom key attached to another location. They sell unique chocolate bars that the owner makes indigenous to Maui.

“Best sushi”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

If you happen to be in kahului and are craving some really good sushi. I would have never guessed from the look of this place they served such good sushi so dont let that disencourage you from walking in. They also serve the traditional tourist menu, burgers and fried stuff. i have never tried anything from their regular menu but if hungry for sushi try the hurricane diego roll.

“Excellent food at very reasonable price.Great sushi bar in early afternoon”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

On North side of Dairy road in a little strip mall, behind a gas station. Looks questionable from outside but try it...great Fish & Chips, excellent cold beer selection, Hawaiin pulled pork, and then late afternoon they open the sushi bar which is outstanding with creative rolls. in Poynt it also shows up as Ren's Sushi bar, but the only signage on the outside is Wow Wee. The two girls serving are very friendly and helpful, as are the guys on the sushi counter.

“Featured on Drinking Made Easy”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

This Kava bar was featured on Drinking Made Easy. They drank six cups of kava tea each. I drank two cups and that was plenty to feel the effects of the kava root. It numbs your mouth and makes you feel relaxed but it only lasts for about 15-30 minutes long so you are good to drive when you leave. It's not very tasty, though.

The food was typical restaurant bar food. The french fries are really good. I read on other reviews that the sushi was really great but it wasn't available yet when we showed up for lunch at 11am on a Tuesday. It's kind of a dive bar but it's worth the visit to try to kava tea. They are also known for their home-made chocolate bars (one of which has kava in it).
