Tips
Some restaurants, like Sansei, offer "kama'aina" (local) specials the island equivalent of the "early bird special." Arrive before 5 or 6 pm, and get up to half off your meal!  These vary, and are always subject to change, so call to inquire.  Keep an eye out, because kama'aina rates are hard to beat and can be found at some of the best restaurants in the area!

 
If you love sushi, here's a great take-out tip! The Times Market in Honokaowai has some of the most delicious fresh-made sushi you can get, and the prices are very reasonable. Check it out in the refrigerated display near the entrance.

 
Arriving & Departing
We're always hungry after a long flight to Maui, and if it's not too late in the day, we head off to a restaurant in Kahului or Paia. Likewise, when we fly home we plan extra time to enjoy a tasty meal at one of these restaurants before we take off.

Here are a few notables restaurants to check out after you arrive or before you leave Maui. And, remember, there's no law against taking these on the plane, unless, perhaps, the TSA Agent is hungry, too. ;-)

Olowalu Leoda's Kitchen & Pie Shop
Olowalu
(approx. halfway between Kihei and Lahaina)
 
These nice folks make the best savory and sweet pies. Words alone cannot do them justice. You must try Leoda's at least once during your stay!
$$
Paia The Fish Market
110 Hana Hwy
at intersection with Baldwin Ave.
 
The best fresh fish sandwiches, period.
New location in Lahaina by the banyan tree is now open!
$$
  Mama's Fish House
Hana Hwy, past Paia,
left at mile marker #8
The ultimate in Hawaiian atmosphere and cuisine. You must go to Mama's at least once in your lifetime! The downside is it's become so popular that it's quite expensive.
$$$-$$$$
Kahului Las Pinatas
295 Dairy Rd
Kahului
Just great Mexican! This is a favorite when when we're over in Kahlui around lunchtime and we have an appetite for Mexican. Never a bad meal! 
 
$$
  Marco's Grill & Deli
70 E Kaahumanu Ave
at intersection with Dairy Road (Rt 30)
 
Delicious deli sandwiches, large portions and good prices.
Get it to go and eat it on the plane!
$$
  Tiki Tiki Thai
395 Dairy Rd
 
Excellent Thai cuisine on the way to the airport $$
  Thailand Cuisine 2
Maui Mall
70 E Kaahumanu Ave
Authentic, delicious Thai dishes
at great prices. Don't let the Mall setting dissuade you.
