Description: A GREAT seafood buffet in the resturant at the golf course. On Friday evening it's seafood and prime rib for $30. I was trying to find a seafood buffet and this one is not well advertised but was full. Reservations are highly recommended. The food was all really well prepared. I know others are researching seafood buffets in Maui with no luck - glad I stumbled across this one.

“Outstanding Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We had our sites on a different dinner location but found it closed. Heading back to Napili I remembered some great after golf lunch experiences at Kahili. When we arrived we found a Saturday night Asian American buffet feature. We were not disappointed. The variety of food available was excellent. From Sushi to Roast Pork including freshly made tempura. Not to mention the views from the terrace are spectacular. Great service topped it all off

“Borderline Average Sunday Brunch Buffet”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went for Sunday brunch two weeks ago and was underwhelmed by the variety and flavor of food. Not your typical Sunday brunch by any means. For Maui $22.95 isn't a bad price for a buffet brunch, but this brunch was more in the $12.95 ballpark. Desserts were what appeared to be previously frozen pies. Terrible tasting and limp crust. Prime rib was tough and had a strange taste, probably the au jous poured on top by the server. Nothinng is marked so you know what the selections are. Wouldn't go back.

“Very pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Since my husband had a tee time shortly after 1 at Kahili Golf Course, we decided to have lunch at the restaurant at the golf course. We had previewed the lunch menu, and found the prices to be amazingly reasonable for Maui - but that was just the beginning of the good news! The food was wonderful, the staff was attentive and efficient, and the view was gorgeous! This turned out to be one of the best meals that we had on our 2 1/2 week vacation on Maui. Honestly, the food was WONDERFUL! My husband had a burger, and I had the Caesar salad and sandwich plate. For the price, I expected only 1/2 a sandwich and a very small salad. Nope - the salad was more than adequate... and excellent... and I was served a full size tuna salad sandwich... the best tuna salad I have had in many years! The burger was excellent, too. We highly recommend this restaurant - an amazing little jewel in the heart of Maui!

“Highlight of our Maui trip so far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We saw an ad in the paper for a Friday night All You Can Eat Buffet with seafood and roast beef. The restaurant ended up being full of locals celebrating their xmas events. The food was spectacular and the service was very attentive. There was a long row of cold seafood dishes and a row of hot seafood dishes and then a separate carving table for the roast beef. There was also a large table of desert choices although the selection here wasn't quite as outstanding as the main dishes.

There was a creamy seafood dish with shrimp, clams, mussels, scallops, and white fish that was as good as any dish I have had on Maui so far. There were also cold and hot crabs legs.
