“Pleased by our food”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We've driven by China Boat a number of times over the past four years and had never eaten there until today. We did take-out and had the Pineapple Coconut Shrimp and Orange Peel Chicken. Both dishes were tasty, though we would have preferred less breading on the shrimp. We also ordered brown rice which was cooked perfectly. It's a good change of pace from regular island fare and reasonably priced. We'll go there again when we are back on Maui.

“Chinese near Lahaina”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Chinese is fairly limited in Maui or atleast the west side. The food was good, prices a little high for what you get. Not a lot of combo options and I was surpised when my entree didn't come with rice! Friendly staff, quiet atmosphere, nice taste change. Affordable for Maui!

“Good but not as Good as in the Past”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We travel to Maui every year and have really enjoyed our meals from the China Boat. This year the good was good but not great! Something just seemed different. We have always ordered take out since we have a condo nearby.

This year we ordered take out twice from the China Boat. Even though it wasn't as good as in past years, we will order again when visiting Maui.

“Not sure it lives up to the hype”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We heard from several people that this restaurant was amazing, while it wasn't bad, I didn't notice anything all that special. My fiance and I both enjoy asian food, this wasn't as good as some other restaurants we've frequented. I didn't love that they charge you extra to have rice accompany your meal, their prices are already fairly high.

“Best Chinese”
Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

We had take-out on our last night in Maui. There was a big group of us so we got to try lots of different dishes. All were excellent. This is standard Chinese food that you would expect in any major city, but is very tasty and well prepared. would definitely recommend if you're in the mood for it.
