“A Bit Like a Cattle Call”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

While the food was excellent and the service very good, the atmosphere was more mechanical than authentic. I felt like we were part of a dining "process" versus a true Maui dining experience.

“not the best..”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

the food is okay, average at best. The restaurant is very crowded, and people are basically sitting on top of each other at dirty cafeteria style tables. The staff are definitely the obnoxious type who are way more concerned with appearing cool than offering any kind of friendly service. The woman at the cash register was the pits as well.

“long line ups famous spot, but ..not sure its worth it.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

this is one popular hopping spot on the corner of Baldwin avenue In Paia , you cant miss it . Very busy most times. The best thing is the fresh fish , its great . Sides are average, prices not cheap. Atmosphere loud and busy. Hard to get a seat most times. I would recommend it once, but not in a rush to go back , due to price and lack of other value other then the fresh catch.

“Best fish taco ever”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Try it u won't be disappointed. Worth the wait, very casual. Large selection of fresh sea food. If you are in the area stop there for lunch or dinner.

“Great Fish Tacos”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

You want fresh fish in a taco, go here. They are huge and it was hard to finish it all. Ordering at the counter was fast and efficient. You have to sometimes share a table with other customers, but your not at a 5 star restaurant. Our only complaint was employees sitting at the tables folding clothes and talking loudly amongst themselves. Plus many times they are standing around, but we had to clear our own plates. Now, that is not a big deal, but if they wanted to improve customer service, they might instruct their people to at least offer. We would certainly go back. Enjoyed their food a lot.
