'Ami'Ami Restaurant Kihei

'Ami 'Ami
A terrific restaurant called AmiAmi is in the Maui Coast Hotel at 2259 South Kihei Road in Kihei.  Phone 808-875-7522.  Open for breakfast and dinner.

Ami Ami is Maui's least expensive fine-dining restaurant, and the food is wonderful.  Each dish is perfectly prepared and beautifully presented.  The long innovative dinner menu includes 19 appetizers, soup and 5 salads, 7 steaks and chops, 6 fish and seafood entrees, chicken, duck and vegetarian choices, and 6 desserts.  The dining area is open air but mostly covered.

Here are the items I have eaten for dinner at AmiAmi and what I loved about each one:
Chorizo tacos -- just the right amount of spiciness in the ground sausage, softened by avocado and tomato pieces, flavored with cilantro
Spicy tuna summer roll -- the cool fresh rice paper wrapping envelops flavorful little pieces of raw ahi tuna and crunchy vegetables
Crisp fried tempura green and yellow beans --  thin tempura coating and thick yummy dipping sauce
Aloha aina greens salad -- contains lots of small pieces of papaya, chopped candied macadamia nuts, and the best lilikoi dressing ever
Dungeness crab & avocado trifle -- colorful layers of greens, mango, and avocado, topped with shredded crab and drizzled with the tastiest truffle oil
Pork loin chop -- 12 ounce grilled thick chop with a round piece of bacon threaded through it, surrounded by malt vinegar caramel
Grilled ahi steak -- cleverly presented with a wrapped package of smoked herbs on top, the ahi is cooked on the outside but raw on the inside, and sits on a bed of mashed breadfruit with pesto
Coconut crusted breast of Jidori chicken -- sweet crust on the chicken, coconut butter sauce, great mashed purple Molokai sweet potatoes
Peanut butter waffle for dessert -- thick Belgian waffle, creamy peanut butter, and chocolate ice cream, with chocolate and caramel sauces and macadamia nuts.

There are two rooms for private parties:  the Garden Lanai and the Plumeria room.  AmiAmi also provides the more casual inexpensive food at the Kamaole Poolside Cafe at this same Maui Coast Hotel.
