Wailuku & Kahului

Dining on Maui is an international adventure. We have cuisines from the four corners of the Earth. Here's your chance to try everything from standard American to Vegan. The Wailuku/Kauhului area in central Maui offers you Thai (2), Vietnamese, Hawaiian, Mexican (2), American, Italian, a Japanese noodle shop and a guri guri shop, which I bet you never heard of.

Saeng's Thai Cuisine
