Our whole family was in Honolulu for the holidays and everyone wanted to visit Mai Lan and eat the curry crab. We did and it turned out to be our favourite dining experience of the 4 days we were all together. The service is slow and there is little opportunity for small talk with the staff as they are so...

This is terrific "hole in the wall" with elegant seafood restaurant. Casual attire and very popular with the Japanese. Curry crab is a must order. The chef (owner), who is very personable and approachable, will happily offer his recommendations. Go with it! You can also bring your own wine, champagne, etc. (I brought my own glassware because we had VIPs... More

We were lured in here, by the wonderful smells emanating, while were getting gas at the Chevron next door. We immediately backed up from the pumps to the parking spaces for Mai Lan. Upon entry, the staff was very personable and queried us to find out we were first time visitors. They advised what was sauce for dipping and how... More

I enjoyed all meals that spring rolls, noodle and some more dishes. All are good and stuff are all kind without talking much in English. Most of table are occupied by Japanese who orders crab curry. I guess some guidebooks recommend it? All walls in shop have covered by pictures who are famous (in japan ).

We were on our way to Sushi Sasabune but they are closed on Sunday. We saw this little Vietnamese place on the way there, about 3 blocks away, so we decided to go there instead. It was a pleasant surprise indeed. The food was as good as the other bigger name places we have tried based on reviews we have... More

After we'd had enough of our Americana chain restaurant extravaganza (4 extra kilos later that took me a few weeks to shake), and sushi (to balance the excess), we were chaffing at the bit for something fresh and bursting with flavour that we were so used to back home. So what better way to find top quality local food at... More
