10/12/2021: If a few of these pages look a little wonky, I'm sorry!  I've just rebuilt the site and have over 400 pages left to go through for final fixes.

Monkeypod Kitchen Kaanapali is a large restaurant in the middle of the Whalers Village shopping center on Kaanapali Beach, on the west side of Maui. It’s at 2345 Kaanapali Parkway.  Phone 808-878-6763.

This is a great place to enjoy lunch, dinner, mid-day snacks or late-evening snacks, right in the heart of Maui’s main resort area. It’s an easy walk from any of the major Kaanapali Beach resort hotels, and an easy drive from anyplace on the west side of Maui (Lahaina, Kaanapali, Honokowai, Kahana, Napili, Kapalua). And of course it’s very convenient when you are shopping at Whalers Village.

Monkeypod Kitchen Kaanapali is covered but open-air, giving it a real Maui ambiance. There is often live music, though that can make the place loud at times. Some of my wife and my favorite foods here are the mushroom pizza, the shrimp & mushroom potstickers, the fish & chips, and the corn chowder.

As one of Peter Merriman’s three restaurants on Maui, Monkeypod Kitchen Kaanapali has many choices of excellent food on their menu. And the prices are much lower than at the upscale Merriman’s in Kapalua, just a few minutes away (though a few of the largest dinner entrees are expensive).

The menu at Monkeypod Kitchen Kaanapali is slightly different at lunch than at dinner.  But at all times you can enjoy appetizers, pizzas, salads, meats, fish, noodles, and a children’s menu. At Happy Hour in the late afternoon and late evening, appetizers are half off and pizzas are at much reduced prices. There’s an itemized menu list below, and a copy of the complete menu with prices at Monkeypod Kitchen Kaanapali menu.

There is another restaurant with the same name, same owners, and similar menu, in Wailea.
