MAUI - Izakya and Good Korean BBQ

Will be staying in Wailea this coming week, Don't mind a little drive... LAhina, Pa'ai......but not napili or Kapalua ..45min to an hour is to far to drive on Vacation .....
I am staying 6 nights and already have identified 4 dinner restaurants .....pending comments.....but need another two ....

1) Although I am a TOTAL raw fish (sushi/sashim Lover) my wife and Son are not, although
they are huge IZAKAYA people.....

2) Good Korean BBQ is also an option.....

3.) IS Sarento's in Kiehe any good for a changeof pace from the Pacific Rim, , Hawaiian seafood?

4.) Also are there any reccomendations for Breakfast or Lunch in the Wailuku area if I go there on Saturday for the Flea market?

5) I Hear Mama's is good ..but is it THAT good ..... I am looking for a little variety!

Thanks In Advance .....

Other wise we are Already planning on going to

Mala @ the Westin in Wailea
Haillie Maille
The Fish Market (Maybe)
Joe's Grill (for the Kobe Burgers)
Hana Ho (maybe)

The Seawatch At Wailea Gold Golf Club

  1. we were in wailea 4 years ago. went to sorento's. it was so good, we went back second time. also went to mama's. like you, we hate to drive that far, but it's worth it. we're going back to wailea this summer, and will go back to both places.

    1. Sarento's is my favorite restaurant in Kihei. The snack bar at the Flea market has the best chow fun on the island but Da Kitchen is close by. I have never been there for breakfast but lunch has great local food and huge portions. I would hit Mama's. It's worth it. Hailiimaile General Store and Gazebo are winners too. If you do go to Paia, try Mambo Cafe for the duck sandwich or salad or Flatbread Company for wood fired oven pizza with organic ingredients.
