I'm really thinking this could be a great restaurant. I did not really care for the taste but that's just me. I'm thinking that I'm just not a fan of Vietnamese food. The place is nice, the menu was thorough and the service was good. If you want this type of food I'd recommend you try this restaurant.

The Innkeeper recommended this place. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. We went late on a Sunday evening and they were still busy. Nice decor. I had the salmon that won an award - it was delicious,and my husband had the Mahi-Mahi. We would go back again if we're in the area.

My wife and I were really craving for some good Vietnamese food so we were on a mission to search for some good Pho. We finally found a place that looked like it would satisfy our cravings. Back in Orange County, CA we have the largest Vietnamese community in the U.S. so we know good Vietnamese food when we see... More

It was dark and the food was average and not memorable. It looked like it catered to locals. The restaurant is in a poor (actually odd) location and confusing for non-residents to find it.

good selection on the menu but the restaurant was willing to make anything I wanted to accommodate my needs as a celiac. It was so good that We went twice so I could try some of the other things they offered to make gluten free.

Maybe it was the time of day we went (towards the end of lunch), or maybe this is what people think good Vietnamese food is on Maui, but my family and I did not enjoy it. We were recommended this place so we thought we would give it a try... The service was really bad and the food was not... More

I eat here regularly and I have never had a less than stellar meal. Everything is exceptional particularly the green papaya salad and the salad with chicken. I ordered 2 salads to go so I could enjoy another meal. Kind of a bizarre location although it's been there forever. Go! You'll be elated.

Family owned and operated, this is certainly a jewel in Wailuku's crown. A nice bar is complemented with a good assortment of Asian beers. The menu is well balanced and the food is excellent. The service is very fast and just as friendly.

Thank Michael H
