The Honokowai Okazuya is one of Maui’s best and most delicious food bargains. It’s at 3600 Lower Honoapiilani Road, in the small strip shopping center that also contains AAAAA Rent-A-Space and The Fish Market, close to Times grocery store and Kaanapali Shores condo (about 8 minutes north of Kaanapali Beach). Phone 808-665-0512. This is one of over 130 inexpensive Maui restaurants reviewed on this website.
The Honokowai Okazuya & Deli was sold by the original owner (John McKivor) in 2006. The current owner is Robert. He kept most of the same menu and the same recipes, so the food is just as good. The original chef-owner of the Honokowai Okazuya was formerly a chef at Mama’s Fish House. That’s why the food here is as good as the food at Maui’s best restaurants. But this is just a tiny carry-out place, so the prices are below what you pay in most Maui restaurants.
There are just a few counter seats in the restaurant, and a couple small tables out front, so most people use the Okazuya as a take-out place, and bring the food back to eat in their condo or hotel room. Your food comes in styrofoam containers with plastic forks and knives. But wow, is that food ever yummy!
