Description: What do you get when you combine raw creativity with authentic Hawaiian cuisine? The answer to this question will become clear as soon as you order a meal at Da Kitchen. From the Chicken Katsu Sandwich to the Hawaiian Plate, our local ethnic cuisine is truly a mix of many cultures. When you're here, you'll be able to try innovative dishes containing all the classic Maui flavors. We even incorporate local fresh fish and veggies. You'll also be treated to fast service and huge portions, two things we take a lot of pride in. Our restaurant is its own ohana, and we welcome foodies and families into our modern, warm atmosphere. So, the next time you're craving a mouth-watering plate lunch in Kahului, Da Kitchen is ready to serve you something you won't forget.

ordered the Chinese chicken salad, came in a big bowl with two cups of sesame dressing. very plain salad nothing special. the chicken was very cold like it was just taken out of refrigerator and sliced...very hard to eat. husband ordered fish and chips..batter very oily and too hot to eat.

Ample portions but MUCH too salty for our taste! The shredded pork was especially salty. It must be popular -- the line went out the door! Every plate that we saw delivered to a table was FULL of food! Nonetheless, it IS expensive even for Maui, on a relative scale.

Two words... Big. Portions. My wife and I shared a Hawaiian platter. It included lomi salmon, laulau, kahlua pig, chicken long rice and potato/macaroni salad. We both ate as much as we could and we didn't come very close to finishing it. The laulau was my favorite dish. Server staff was friendly and the room clean and orderly. We would eat there again but I would definitely order a smaller meal.

It's a simple place in a strip mall but if you've got a big appetite it's worth checking out.

Stop on your way to and from the airport. Da Kitchen is much better than those plate lunch places that are well advertised. The portions are huge and a great value for your money. The Kalua Pork plate is humungous and oh soooo yummy. The teriyaki chicken plate comes with 4 pieces of all natural, hormone free chicken, 2 large scoops of rice & a scoop of mac/potato salad. Not everything on the menu is great but overall the food is delicious. The service is great and food comes out pretty fast for always being packed.
