Asian fusion cuisine by Alan Wong. The atmosphere was a treat, it really felt like you were somewhere in Japan. They do a lot of "small plates" so it's easy to sample many items, especially since they are creations that you may not recognize. The service was very friendly and efficient, the food was across the board excellent and we had a wonderful time.

The physicality of the restaurant is discobobulated. 3 or 4 cooking areas. Same restaurant configuration as old restaurant. Couldn't figure out what to order

The food was wonderful and the service was top notch. Great recommendations from our waitress, as my wife consumed both her tapas and mine:). I enjoyed the peacefulness and ambiance as well.

We loved Alan Wong's in Honolulu so much and were thrilled when we discovered that Alan Wong had a new restaurant on Maui, Amasia (America and Asia combined). Although it is completely different than the Honolulu menu, they DO let you know this upon entrance into the Maui site.

This is absolutely beautiful and serene with a focus on Japanese flair in the interior. Rice paper windows, unique textured walls, a pond with water lilies to look out upon, with minimalist interior decor are just a few visual delights to enhance the dining experience.

The service is over the top! One of the most attentive group of servers that explain every dish, the 'meaning' behind them all the way down to where the rare Hawaiian 'salt' on the tomato salad comes from. Very delightful.

There is no crowding of tables in this beautiful venue, unlike so MANY eateries in Hawaii. We loved that! The overhead music, however, did not suit the environment, sort of funky pop and not soothing at all. A bad match for such a lovely restaurant.

Now for the food: You can order food in a variety of ways: individual entrees, sushi bar, or tapa style to taste a variety of dishes. We selected the tapa style in order to share with each other. The portions are extremely small and expensive.

The Asian chicken salad is WONDERFUL and I wish that we each had ordered our own instead of sharing it. Yes, it's big, but it is also very, very light; total 'ono' deliciousness. The tomato salad is wonderful as well.

We ordered one tapa from each of the categories: fish/seafood - Ahi Meatballs; poultry - Duck Bao Buns; pork - Potstickers; beef - Beef skewers.

The only dish that we enjoyed was the pork Potstickers, the sauce is mind-blowing delicious.

We chose not to order dessert.

The Passion Fruit Mojito is EXTRAORDINARY! I'd love to get my hands on that recipe!

We chose not to order dessert and ended up with a tab of $120.00 without tip.
We very much enjoyed Amaisa, and recommend it, but I believe that it will be a one time visit for us. We'd return to Alan Wong's in Honolulu in a heartbeat though which is completely different.

This place is one of the coolest interiors of a restaurant that i've ever been to. Walking to our table, the "hallway" angled and turned with varying rooms, tables, interior water pools/streams/waterfalls on our left & right. Service was impeccable. Server provided excellent details about the dishes and was on-the-ball. Food was superb. Definitely expensive, but thought it was well worth it....
