After wandering around a bit, we decided on Cafe des Amis. Friendly, lively place with live entertainment. We waited about 15 minutes to get a table outside. The menu was quite varied. The service was warm and friendly. I ordered shrimp and coconut wrap but a bowl of rice and curried shrimp came instead by mistake. Not being one to... More

We came for lunch and then again did take out dinner later. Great food (salads, crepes and curries) and good service. Especially liked the fish curry which was made with Mahi Mahi. Spicy but not too hot and deliciously savoury!

We got here directly from Kahului airport, the reviews looked good. When I asked, they had minimum 45 minute waiting to be seated. So it would have been roughly 1 hour wait to eat once we'd order after getting a place in the small crowded space. It was only 20 min to take out so I ordered to go. The... More

We had a birthday dinner for our son at Cafe des Amis. We stopped in to inquire in the afternoon and told them we would call to confirm. Their phones were not working all day and yet when we arrived in the evening they had held a table for 10 for us. Fabulous curries and margaritas. Lovely acoustic guitar as... More

Food was great, service was a little slow, but to be expected with everyone going in at the same time. Definitely fresh, delicious food.

I tried the beef curry at Cafe des Amis on a recent outing to Paia. I'd never had curry before so I don't know if it was traditional or not. I enjoyed my meal. The cafe had an interesting menu. I would recommend it if you are in Paia.

They have outdoor seating. They have live music at night. They have vegan and gluten free options. OMG!!! The veggie curry wrap is insane - I ordered extra mango chutney to go with mine. The Bombay potatoes are so good too. This was my fave place to go out for dinner.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this place as I was strolling around Paia near Hana Highway. They have great sounding Indian and Mediterranean food, and I loved the vegetable curry with rice. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. Loved the ambience too!

Having tried quite a few restaurants in Paia, Cafe des Amis is one of the 2 where we always return. Our favorite dish is the Vegetarian Mediterranean Platter (for two), that's hummus, olives, cucumber raita, feta, garlic artichoke salad and roast Mediterranean vegetables, tomatoes, pesto and pita bread. It really is as good as it sounds. We've had a number... More
