Comfortable yet simply elegant and featuring lots of natural wood, Bob Wasabi Kitchen has quickly become a 'go-to' staple for sushi-loving locals. Previously residents of Maui, Bob, his wife, two daughters and their son have created a friendly environment whose knowledgeable staff offers great service too. Although some customers have mentioned high prices, the restaurant is known for its enormous servings and ultra-fresh seafood. The Hawaiian Roll – shrimp tempura and kani salad topped with Poke – is a must-try. Customers love TNT Rolls, with just enough heat to bring spicy tuna, hamachi and salmon flavors together, and umami-rich Miso Soup. Watch expert sushi makers at work, when you dine at the sushi bar; you'll avoid the wait for a spot at the restaurant's limited two and four-top tables too. Just don't try to order fried rice. It's not available here.
- Asian: "Accompany your meal with one of many sake varieties, including Snow Maiden Sake, whose flavor resembles honeydew melon; as well as Sapporo beer or sparkling water. An order of green tea comes with free refills."
- Best for Asian Because: Customers can't say enough about the food quality and great staff at this restaurant with Maui roots.
