menu very accommodating for vegetarians. Restaurant very generous to make up for a slight error made on an entree.

Given the high prices on the menu, the restaurant is surprisingly casual. The service is no better than average, the ambiance is noisy (tables close together ) , the meal is rushed, and the food just not worthy of the prices.

Our waitress was excellent, but the food was ok. The BBQ skewers and chicken & mushroom spring rolls were average at best. The lobster tempura was basically lobster fish and chips. I suppose that makes sense, but we expected something better.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner with our family of four, especially searing the ahi on the hot rock, and the noodle dish. Server from Cleveland was very friendly and helpful, offering to halve an entry for my 12 year old daughter.

I recently took my new bride to Ko for our wedding dinner. The night could not have been better, thanks to the lovely staff at Ko. Everything about the experience was amazing!! The service was the best I've ever encountered. The food was incredible. I was really surprised when we arrived as I am a vegetarian and had looked at the menu online and found items I could eat. I am not sure if I missed it online, but they had additional items for people who are vegan, people with allergies, etc. We had an appetizer, our main courses and dessert, plus a sample of cocktails. All were 5 star. Our ceremony was a typical beautiful Maui wedding, but Ko made the day something to remember.
