It’s hard to believe, but there is NO legitimate dedicated Chinese restaurant here on the island of Maui! When Dragon Dragon closed, all of us Pake’s were left longing for dim sum and true Cantonese, Mandarin or Szechuan cooking.

So Chinese New Year arrived, and the Dog was howling for a taste of the homeland. Luckily we found Wei Wei BBQ & Noodle House in Pukalani which is one of a few quicky steam table type Chinese take-out places scattered over the island. I read it was under new management, so we gave it a shot.

The quality of food was actually quite good, and was ready for take out when I arrived. I ordered ginger chicken, roast duck, sweet and sour pork and egg foo young. The chicken and duck were very good with generous portions. The egg foo young was more like an omelette, but was quite tasty. The sweet and sour pork was on the weak soggy side. I also ordered crispy noodle gau gee, but they gave us the soft noodles instead.

All in all, until an enterprising chef from Honolulu heads over to Maui, Wei Wei is an acceptable offering.

As this place is the only option for Chinese cuisine in the upcountry area I was very disappointed with the service and the food was just ok. They have old menus and old pictures of your food choices to select when ordering. The lady was not pleasant and it seemed like the food was pre made and just reheated. If you are expecting authentic Chinese cuisine this is not the place. Food was overpriced and presentation was below standards.

We had some time before a function across the street at the Tavares Community Hall so we popped in for chinese food. It is nothing special but prices are reasonable for a decent quantity. Owners practically do not speak English and as far as cleanliness goes it is a typical Chinese restaurant. On the scale of ambiance it would be very low. Locals go here for takeout which seemed quite busy.
