We had the Vietnamese crepes which were really good and the pork buns which were like little sliders and the pad Thai. The service was very good and the restaurant has a nice vibe. It gets very crowded so we went early and were seated right away but within just a few minutes after our arrival the place was full and when we left at 5:30 there was quite a lot of people waiting. So prepare to wait. The server was very helpful in explaining the dishes and how to order. I would definitely go here again.

This little place proves that "location, location, location" doesn't mean anything! It is located at the top of an industrial park and from the second we walked in, we loved it. The décor is very urban and not what you would expect on Maui.. We didn't have to wait, but it was very crowded--I think we got the only open table. The courses are served tapas style--we had the chicken skewers, garlic noodles and some other things I can't remember--all of which were excellent, except for an egg Portugese style hash which we didn't care for. The staff was friendly and efficient and we never once felt rushed even though by that time there were people waiting to be seated. Do do do order the malasadas for desert.

It's hard to find a reasonably priced meal that's delicious anywhere in Hawaii. But then there's Star Noodle. It's a small, lively and always crowded restaurant. When you taste the food, you understand why. Everything...I mean everything we had was flavorful. The drinks were also great. And it seemed that every employee was happy to work there. We sat at the bar and met a lovely couple from Toronto on their honeymoon. (Imagine that...honeymooners in Hawaii!) A good night. Good food. Good people. What more could you ask for?

This place is pretty highly acclaimed amongst foodies going to Maui. Unexpectedly, I thought the highlight was the physical ambiance of the restaurant itself and the friendly waiters as opposed to the food itself. We sat up at the bar and had a really cool conversation with the waiters about things to do on the island. When we left we both remarked how cool people on Maui are and how you don't get that anywhere else. So, food wise, we probably ordered the wrong things. I think we had a mushroom thing, the pork buns, and something else I can't remember. Nothing was bad, but it was all just okay. I saw someone getting the poke with avocado and it looked amazing. I definitely regret not getting that and would go back to try it. Which brings up the larger point that when you're on Maui, if you like fish, you should really be eating poke breakfast, lunch and dinner. I mean, that is what they do best. Just go for it.

Why eat in overpriced, unimaginative, hard-to-park downtown Lahaina when you can eat here? The choices are exciting and novel. The preparations are delish. The prices make you feel like you've gotten a value.

And here's the secret to the Hungry Factor, since they don't take reservations: Call as you leave your condo; get on the waiting list. The host or hostess will tell you approximately how long the line is at that point. When you arrive, check in to get your update.

We mixed and matched many fun items and made a wonderful island memory.
