Small place, very nice people. Food was not warm enough, and the sauces had little flavor, but were very spicy. Bonus: You can bring in your own bottle of beer/wine.

This was our first visit to Chef Restaurant, but it won't be our last. Our server was pleasant and we didn't feel rushed at all. The food exploded with flavor. Each item we ordered had it's own distinct flavor. The price of the over all meal was very reasonable. The tables are a little close to each other which resulted... More

First of all, bring a bottle of wine. If you like lobster tail order the red curry and lobster tail. I thought it would be local bugs but its a half pound Maine tail in the best curry I've ever had. Service was awesome, very friendly waitress. Wife had a garlic chicken dish that has also very good. Prices for... More

We were walking around looking for a light lunch and stumbled upon Thai Chef...located in a strip mall. The Pad Thai we ordered was very tasty and full of flavour. would like to have tried other dishes, but that will have to wait till next time.

This is our family's go to every trip. We always pick up a chicken pineapple fried rice along with a shrimp pineapple fried rice. We stay up in Kahana, and there are for adults and three kids. Finding a family style portion can be a tricky thing. Not at the Thai Chef. And the spring rolls are very good also.... More

We always enjoy Thai Chef every year when we come to Maui. Thai iced tea is excellent. I love the summer rolls; fresh veggies with a delectable dipping sauce. Chicken satay is excellent, and my husband loves their pineapple fried rice. Service has always been friendly and efficient. For some people, parking seems to be a problem, but we just... More

A small plea hidden in a shopping center behind front street. Once you find 858 Front Street head in the back contains a shopping center with the post office. The food is very good and reasonably priced for a restaurant on front street. There are a variety of curries, vegetable and Thai dishes. We had the yellow curry and the... More

I love Thai food and eat it frequently back home (Seattle). I was not impressed with our take-out meal from Thai Chef. The yellow curry was bland and tasted like lightly seasoned coconut milk - curry should have a potent curry flavor, shouldn't it? The chicken pad Thai was decent, but also fell short on the flavor scale and didn't... More

How can a small, family owned restaurant located in a strip mall area be a favorite of locals and vacationers? It doesn't seem to advertise so only through word of mouth does it achieve such high ratings. Bring your own bottle of wine and enjoy the tastiest of Thai foods with friendly Thai service. Don't forget the homemade coconut ice... More

Couldn't get a table for our second visit to Star Noodle this trip but staff recommended Thai Chef...... great recommendation. Little family run (herbs grown at their home) operation with perhaps 30 seats. Lots of great curries, nice presentation, bring your own beer/wine, friendly staff, very reasonably priced. We will definitely return on our next visit
