But, the last visit...first in 5 years...wasn't what I remembered it to be. I got the cold vermicelli bowl with chicken. The chicken was dry and rubbery. When I lived on Maui...I visited this place about 2x per week. Hopefully, it was just an off night. I love the owners.

About 7:30 on a rainy Sunday night we found almost every table filled with chattering patrons. Pleasant ambience with chandeliers and tablecloths under glass. Lots of choice on the menu. Also, beers and wines. We had the combination fried rice abd the crispy shrimp. Sizable portions so we were glad we decided to forgo the appetizer. The huge shrimp came... More

Our group of 5 senior foodies have been traveling to Kihei since 2002. We've passed by this restaurant in the shopping mall at least 50 times, each time saying "we should try that place for lunch." Finally this year, we made sure we checked it out -- now we're sorry we took so long. The food is fresh, healthy, bright,... More

One of the best hidden jems of Kihei I think! Ive dined here forever and the consistency hasnt changed over 10 years! Ann the owner is always super friendly and makes sure everyones happy with their meal. Try the beef burritos or the rice noodles. The half fried chicken is also so tasty!

We went to this plaza with another restaurant in mind for lunch but our intended restaurant was closed. We were very hungry and are glad to find that Vietnamese Cuisine was still open. It was past 3pm when we walked in. The place was spacious but empty because of the time. The waiter quickly took our order. The food also... More

The proprietor of this establishment is Ann Carpenter née Nugyen. She married a Company Man and is now a member of the Saigon branch of the Carpenter family. Her son Vince graduated from West Point. Enough said. Ann is a motherly type. She'll help newcomers order and cook it to boot. Here's our standard order. We like to begin with... More

I am not an expert on Vietnamese Cuisine but this wasn't good. One dish tasted like soy sauce and like nothing else, the other one was cold (comment: we could heat it up in the microwave). Additionally, the service wasn't really friendly. All in all this was unfortunately an unpleasant experience. Sad.

We came here cause our friends were craving Vietnamese food. We order Pho, spring rolls and the beef cubes. The spring rolls tasted horrible, definitely re-fried and the color was darker than the norm indicating they were re-fried and old. Tasted like they were soaked in old oil. The beef cubes were so tough and hard to chew. The Pho... More

The pho is good, beef is a bit overcook, but the soup is fantastic. Services is good, shrimp pipe is delicious and I believe grill shrimp is very nice as well.
