China Boat has been stepping it up lately with on-time service and excellent food. I recommend take-out versus dine-in unless you can bear the warmness of the restaurant. All in all, great place for a quick Chinese dining experience.

We were greeted by a luke warm welcome. The decor needs cleaning. I ordered the chicken fried rice which was not great. We will not be back.

The China Boat had easy take out which suited us as we were staying right nearby. They make about four dishes that are gluten free, and they were all tasty, especially the candied shrimp. We were fighting over them. You must try that dish.

Service was good, food came out quickly. Husband ordered General Chicken (General Tso at home) and said it was the best he has ever had. Dinner for 2 with 3 drinks was $46. Not bad for Maui prices.

We were staying at an Airbnb on Lower Honopiilani Road and there were very few restaurants nearby. We wanted a later in the evening dinner without having to drive 20 minutes to get to the Front Street area and China Boat was within walking distance....More

We got there when they opened up for dinner....we were planning to get the food to go, glad we made that choice. Not the nicest waiting area...lots of cardboard boxes piled up waiting for “to go” orders. But our food was hot and done quickly....More

We dined here last night as it had been several years since last venture and it hasn’t changed much. The staff is nice enough, kinda, but the food was certainly not worth $50 for two people. Also, the place was somewhat dirty and quite warm.

Did take-out on a rainy night and it was perfect! Their veggies and gluten free udon noodles were perfect!

After reading reviews of either loving it or hating it we decided to give it a try. Many of the reviews were about service so we got there at opening so we would not be in the crowd. First off, do not get the bbq...More

I live in a diverse community with a very high Asian population. Oriental food establishments out number anything else by 5/1, so I know good oriental food from the not-so-good. This was by far, the BEST Chinese food I have ever had. China Boat is...More

I’m answering my own question. Yes, China Boat has traditional whole Peking duck. We had a delightful meal of it, pre-sliced instead of server prepared as in some pricier restaurants. Our interactions with Winnie, a young... More
