The suckling pig was excellent as was the prime rib special. Very generous portions. Very reasonable prices.members of our party enjoyed the Shrimp Sari, and Pancil. The atmosphere reminded me of dinning in a VFW Hall. Minimal decorations, tile floor, kitchen table like furniture. But you will not be disappointed by the food.

The food and service were ok. The decor was dated, but the food came pretty soon after ordering and that was a plus, since we were really hungry.

This restaurant probably best reflects the cross-cultural roots that is modern Hawaii. Try the pupu platter. It was quite good even though it took so long to prepare that our main course arrived when we'd barely begun chowing down on calamari and crispy chicken wings. Not fancy at all but the food was good at Tante's. there should be something... More

I had the luau omelete...it was good, the kalua pork was very tasty. My pineapple juice was a little watered down, and for what I got, seemed (my whole meal) a little pricey. My diner style breakfast was $19 including a $3 tip. Good, not great or amazing, there may be some special "local" options that really are special...

Located next to the Maui Seaside Hotel, this restaurant is open to the public and serves a good selection of meals to choose from. Their prices are reasonable and portions are ample. Keep in mind that it is not a fast food joint, so enjoy your drinks and company after placing your order. Your food should be well worth the... More

WOW!!!!! The field chicken is simply the BEST I ever had! Moist, tasty, and extremely crispy, this fried chicken has it all! Service is also a strong suite as the people serving are 1st rate, and know how to treat their customers. A MUST try when you're in Kahului!

Super breakfast! Shrimp and ahi benedict was one of the best benedicts ever. Roasted veggie omelet with garlic fried rice was yummy. Exemplary service from Artemio made this breakfast a special locals treat.

It was full of garlic and salt and dripping in sauce, I thought after having so many bad choices on my holiday I would choose something healthy, wrong, should have stayed with the Kids Angus burger and chips my daughter had, was nice and looked yum.

This small local joint may not say much on the exterior or interior, but the food, flavor and presentation is all good. We walked in as we were in the area and I needed to eat as the others already had and surprisingly saw it was busy with what seemed to be locals (good sign). I was craving the traditional... More
