Maui Thai Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Great Thai food - and they offer "Thai spicy" to boot. Great meal... best fried rice on the island (from the pickiest friend ever), the chicken laab was fabulous, the crispy fish was really good, and the parang macnut curry with shoe rib so very good. The stay was fabulous and the kalua pig spring rolls pretty darn good.
The food was very good and service was quick and efficient. Cheerful atmosphere- liked pthe colorful lighting and napkins. The open ceiling made it noisy at busiest time; ceiling tiles could really help the sound level. Was difficult for conversation, especially with elderly customers.
My family and friends ate at the Maui Bistro twice. Given that we had a condo to prepare our own food and 3 children under 4 years of age, our repeat business was a compliment to the service and food quality. The sticky rice was perfect at both meals and the waitresses were very friendly amidst the busy environment. The local gelato desserts added a touch of Maui charm to the meal.
Our server Patty was excellent. Started at Happy Hour with Mai Thai's. Very good! My wife hasd the Drunken Noodle Seafod Stir Fry. She enjoyed it very much but was a bit too much on the hot side for me. I had a Seafood Pad Thai, medium heat which Patty said was about a 3 out of five. Just the right amount of heat for me. We both enjoyed the meal and would recommend!
Great Thai food served quickly and efficiently. Good value. The drunken fish was super and just right. Pumpkin curry very smooth and tasty. It's in a strip mall and no ocean views so we could have been in suburban California but neverthelesss we enjoyed the change of pace.
We just randomly happened upon this place on our trip to Maui. We are big Thai food lovers and expected very little, but WOW, were we blown away by our experience. So much so that we can back a second time! The macadamia nut panang curry (with short rib) and eggplant curry (with chicken) were spectacular. Pork laab cake appetizer was really wonderful too. Cocktails took it to another level. I had the Tom Yum martini, which was a mix of my fave flavors (lemongrass ginger chile and shochu) and the Kafir Collins were both creative and spectacularly crafted. Ambiance is nice but not fancy - which was fine by us. Would rather have great food and drinks!
