“Not as good as expected”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The food was ok, not what I expected, but good. The fish looked like it had been cooked too long instead of looking golden brown. It tasted fine though. Fries were excellent almost as good as McDonalds! The help was friendly and patient with our group as we had several friends with us. I'm glad I went, but probably wouldn't make a special trip to go back.

“very large tacos”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

we stopped for lunch at coconuts and the food was very good. we had the fish tacos that they are so famous for. they are definatly a two hand meal. the fish was good tasting and the filling was plentiful. we ate out on the patio and although it is in a strip mall it was quiet. the owner, who has an insignia on his shirt that says "Coconuts Dad" was very friendly and out and about with his customers making sure everything was all right and we were happy. will go back for more.

“Great Tacos”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We stopped here to try their fish tacos and they were very good. Fresh and flavorful. It is in a strip mall in south kihei. We would definitely recommend it to others. We met others who eat here frequently and also highly recommend it. The tables are shared tables with 6 chairs per table. The staff were very friendly.

“Example of doing one thing very well, over and over - Fish Taco”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Other recent reviews have described the food very well. If you are in Kihei and would like to have a fine experience eating a well made fish taco, Coconut's is the place.
The chef, wanders around asking about your experience and the service people explain everything and get the order to your table without any fuss. Clean, well lite tables with surf board benches. If you want water, pull down the despenser handle so you don't get the lemonade.

Don't stress about the portions, just purchase one order for two people as they arrive on individual plates. Get another order, if needed, after your two plates are clean. The Maui IPA goes well with the food too.

No worries, just good food.
