Local place, small dining area and for the short time it is open it is PACKED. The reason: out of this world food. The pastries are wonderful, the saimin (ramen) noodles and broth are excellent and don't get me started on the teriyaki sticks! My mom orders the teriyaki sticks 20 at a time to go. If visiting Maui and... More

We have family and friends in Maui so the first stop for a meal is Sam Sato's. Definitely comfort food. Our go to dishes are the dry saimen and fried rice. We got there around 10 am and still had to wait for half an hour. Other times the wait can be up to an hour or more as it... More

This place is a gem. My husband grew up on Maui and Sam Sato's is comfort food at it's finest for him. I could eat anything here, side of mac salad is a must of course.

Our local friend took us to this place for a hearty breakfast :D Dry noodles, loco moco, chicken katsu and fries. Great prices, great service and I still dream about those udon style pork noodles. Go if you're on Maui, you'll be happy you did.

We just can't get enough of it! We always order the Dry mein, beef BBQ sticks, fries and Cheeseburger deluxe. Yes sounds like a lot of food, which it is for two, but everything always goes so well together. If we come for breakfast I'll just order the banana pancake instead of the burger. The taste is always consistent with... More

The wonton wrapper was really thick and breakin apart, soup was okay and the noodles were a bit under cooked. Only plus was the portion was big. Not t sure... More

Omg their dry noodles are sooooo delicious. Their beef stick and teri beef bun also delicious. Their soup broth....yuck...taste like dirty water. No soup for me. Maybe its because I love tonkatsu ramen a lot and I have some really good tonkatsu broth but it was not good.
