I had the kale salad and beet box and loved it. My whole family was happy with their selections. It was crowded and small but the service was quick and we would return.

We went here straight after landing in Maui and loved it. There was a line out the door, but the staff is very efficient and we didn't wait long. The food was great and very unique. We almost went back again during our trip!

No. I would eat there with the locals. Watch the activities in the tiny restaurant.
