Everyone ordered appy's to share and drinks all round. I liked the live music the night we were there, and I had a memorable taste experience, having the smoked taro root humus. A MUST to try!! It was fabulous, I will remember it until next time!! Worth the drive out that way, just to see the gorgeous homes on the waterfront properties.

My husband and I looked online for a place near our hotel that was a reasonable price and great food. Well we found it at this place! It was jut our kind of place. My husband had the keyhoe spicy Thai fish stew and loved it. I has the fish taco. And our server was able to recommend some great local beer. I would definitely recommend this to any of my family or friends

We go to Maui every year. Last year this was our favorite restuarant. This year, it lost its edge...we only went one time. The prices of the food went up and the quality of the food went down. Still a nice place, but there are better ones in the area.

Save room for dessert ! This is an excellent recommendation for anyone ! Great food, great service...fun bar...the entire experience was exceptional. Recommend a reservation as this place is always busy. If you are staying in Wailea, put The Pod on your list.

My wife and I dined here for the third time in a year. This visit was as good as the first two! Courteous hostess staff, on time reservation, friendly waiter, killer Mai Tai and best of all consistently great food. Monkey pod has a great and busy vibe. One tip is ask NOT to sit in bar area....Otherwise the meal was terrific. We shared a pizza Margarita then I had the fresh fish burger and my wife had a salad. All first rate, all consistently great!
