When I had to leave Maui for three years to care for my mom in California, the first place I ate when I finally returned was Sam Sato's. I ordered a hamburger deluxe and a large dry noodle. Yum. Just as good as always. Thank...More

This restaurant has been a local favorite for years. If you are a tourist looking for a break from the over stylized, over priced food of this area, go here. You can get either traditional or local meals that are tasty in a minimalist setting....More

Stepping in to Sato's is like stepping into a bistro in Hong Kong. Some of the best noodles you've ever had can be found here!

The little wait of about 15 minutes was worth it! The restaurant is small but a quick turnover. Very friendly and efficient staff! Loved the dry noodles and beef stick!

Solid and consistent food, attentive and charming service, but the star of this place is ANY of the expertly crafted baked goods - lima bean manju is simply heavenly and my absolute fave novelty when returning to Maui (OK, maybe Tasaka guri-guri, too). Turnovers, ampan...More
