Haiku might not be your first stop in Maui, but this place is worth it. First, the name. By the road there is a small sign that says Turk Turk; drive into the parking lot and the sign on the building says Sala Dang Thai Kitchen. You are at the right place. The owner changed the name when she gave... More

If you are in the Haiku/Paia are, this is a *must*. It's one of those tucked-away-hole-in-the-wall places. The sign from the street says Tuk Tuk Thai, but it's new name is actually Sala Dang.

What a great find. Half the fun was following the guidance system fro Kapalua! We loved everything we had starting with chicken satay. So tender and the sauce was beautifully complimented by a fresh peanut compote. Panang and Mansuman seafood curries included snapper, salmon, ono, and shrimp cooked perfectly in a layered sauce of fresh Thai spices and coconut milk.... More

Sala Dang (formerly Tuk Tuk) is well worth the drive!! Best Thai food in Maui! Chicken satay was phenomenal! I had the fish curry (salmon,Ono, snapper, shrimp). The portions are very generous which meant we had leftovers to enjoy another day! Don't miss this hidden gem. The owners are the sweetest!

Sweet owner/cook makes excellent authentic Thai dishes. Pad Thai was superb, also loved the vegetarian spring rolls. Excellent service, warm friendly and efficient. It's easy to see why this is the best Thai food in Maui. Can't wait to come back!

If you are looking for authentic delicious Thai Cuisine made with Aloha this is the best you will find. The atmosphere is comfortable and inviting. We live in Haiku. 9/10 times when we dine out we go here. The owner is one of the warmest people I have ever met and this love is transferred into the meals she prepares...

We had a feeling this place would be authentic and delicious and we were right! We loved the pad Thai, Tom yum soup (large portion!) and chicken Thai basil. Thanks for a great meal!

We loved the food here. The ambiance is definitely rural ... chickens in the yard. The people are warm and lovely.

A sweet lady owns/runs this place - named Dang. Large portions (really). Love the crispy chicken - curries - and fried spring rolls are a must (if she has them).
