Wokstar Noodle Cafe Restaurant in Kihei
CLOSED in 2011. In spite of the name, Wokstar International Noodle Cafe was not a franchise of some giant chain restaurant, but was an independently owned tiny inexpensive restaurant in Kihei. It was at 1913 South Kihei Road, in the Kalama Village shopping center, directly across from the whale statue in Kalama park. Phone 808-495-0066.
You ordered your food at an indoor counter, but you ate at covered outdoor picnic tables. The Asian-food menu included potstickers and other appetizers, wonderfully delicious Thai coconut chicken soup, noodle salads, and “bowls” of main courses with noodles or rice, that can be made vegetarian or with beef, pork, shrimp, or fish. My favorite dessert was the absolutely yummy Banana Jaffel (toasted sandwich of peanut butter and bananas). See below for a list of specific menu items as well as photos.
Wokstar was open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, seven days a week. Say Aloha to the owners, Mark Musante and Sarah Gray. If you are looking for an inexpensive place for very good Asian food in Kihei, this was it.
