Grand Wailea hotel in 2012. Phone 808-875-1234.
The owner of Amasia is Alan Wong, a famous chef who has two outstanding restaurants in Honolulu on the island of Oahu. So the food at Amasia is wonderful. They have foods from many countries, a "global marketplace of different cultures where east meets west in Hawaii." There are small plates perfect for sharing and tasting. In addition to a sushi bar, Amasia has a robata, which is a grill used to prepare Japanese food for customers seated around the cooking area. The main sections of the long menu are soups & salads, seafood, poultry, pork, beef, rice & noodles, vegetables, and sushi. There is also a 5-course tasting menu.
Everything that I and my dining companions tasted at Amasia was excellent and was beautifully presented.
See food photos and menu below.
