Living in Wailuku, my wife and I have been to The Main Street Bistro several times and have never been disappointed. Tom Selman has cooked in several of Maui's top restaurants but eventually decided to run his own place. When it's busy I suppose some people can be put off by the service but Tom is doing all of the cooking himself and takes the time to make sure every order is done right. Remember, you're in Hawaii. Relax.
We often eat when the restaurant isn't as busy and Tom usually comes over and talks to us even though he really doesn't know who we are. He loves talking about cooking and has many interesting stories about Maui.
My favorite meal is his grilled Mahi sandwich. He explained that he puts the fish in olive oil and freezes it. When it thaws it soaks in some of the oil making a very moist and flavorful meal. My wife's favorite is the shrimp burger that other people have mentioned. It's true that some of the dishes are small but that's what tapas are - small plates. If you're really hungry order two or three and you should be satisfied. And do get the onion rings -!/2 order!
