Amasia is tucked down below the ocean view line, surrounded by a lagoon, tiki torches, and foliage - not what you might expect in a Hawaiian resort that is right on the water. But it worked for us: it was a serene, lovely experience, in one of the many small rooms that make up a uniquely designed space. We ordered the sampling menu, with wine pairings, and were not disappointed. The food was interesting, beautifully presented, with many original tastes and textures. The wines were perfectly paired. And our server, Terry, was outstanding - friendly and at the same time extremely professional, with the level of knowledge that one would expect at a fine restaurant. We were very happy to have experienced Amasia, and would go back again.

we had dinner there and are really disappointed. 1) the ladies at the reception were not very friendly but snappy; 2) the presentation of the spicy mochiko chicken was what I would I would have expected in a KFC and some of the chicken pieces were badly burned so I couldn't even eat them; 3) the slider was OK so was the ginger onaga.

But I must say you get better service and better quality at Mama's Fish House in Paia or at the The Laihana Fish Co. in Laihana. The Ko restaurant at the Fairmont Kea Lani or the Morimoto at the Andaz hotel are much better options

This is the kind f place you go for a group dinner or a nice couples date night.The environment is so relaxing and there is so much to look at. So many wonderful, little Japanese nooks and spaces to have a special dinner experience. Our server Terry was very knowledgable on the menu and the history of the place. we even got a little tour with the story behind some of the architecture around the place. So don't hesitate to ask questions. we had a chefs special sushi sampler and i can't remember exactly what our entree's were but the desert was a coconut ice creme with fresh fruit and it was THE best desert i have had in a while. Hope this review helps someone else enjoy it as much as i did. not that you need my help. the place sells itself.

I'd heard mixed reviews, but we decided to try for ourselves, and were happily surprised. Our server, Terry, took really good care of us, and the food was excellent. The onaga fish dinner is definitely something I would order again, and dessert, "The Coconut" knocked our socks off. We'd go back just for that alone.

The food is decent/average. This restaurant is very very expensive. So, it's not worth the money. I could eat better food with less money somewhere else.
