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.

Headed over to Da Kitchen from the airport.

The in-law's flight was 3 hours late, after having to detour around a storm system.

Even being extra hungry, they could not finish the huge portions that Da Kitchen brings out.

Something for everyone, even vegetarians.

The iced tea was great, we found the organic lemonade to be pretty sugary though.

An excellent value.

We stopped here on the way from the west side to Haleakala. We had teri chicken and kalua pig plate lunches. So good - and sooo much food! The service was quick and good. The prices are reasonable. What's not to love?

Great variety, local foods, fresh and hot, casual fun foodfest! Great place to stop for a hearty meal. Tons of locals and workers go here. I treated my work team to lunch here and we scarfed it up. I had the chicken katchu. I saw people eating yummy burger lunch plates with rice and spam dishes. I'll definitely return.

Whenever we arrive in Maui, we always stop by Da Kitchen for our first meal. It's conveniently located near the airport. This time around, we were lucky and managed to miss the lunch crowd. My husband ordered the ahi sandwich, I got the fried rice and my son the terriyaki burger. The prices are pretty reasonable. We all enjoyed our meals. Although the restaurant was pretty full (a line started up just as we were seated) the service is quick and efficient. A few years ago, we tried the Da Kitchen in Lahaina on Front Street. That restaurant doesn't seem to be nearly as good as the one in Kahalui.
