This homage to the past is captivatingly juxtaposed with the gifts of modern luxury, offering clean lines, sophisticated furnishings and most importantly, a contemporary approach to cuisine. Cane & Canoe’s menu is modern Hawaiian, inventively infused with Asian influences – reflecting the islands’ multicultural heritage. With a breathtaking oceanfront location, seafood naturally plays a central role, comprised of the freshest catches available. Produce is also locally sourced, whenever possible.

"We dined at the Cane and Canoe on our last night in Maui. Unforgettable. From the moment we set foot in this classy hotel restaurant, and experienced the excellent service, fine wines and great food, coupled with outdoor seating overlooking a beautiful sunset over the Pacific, I knew I’d be giving a 5-star rating all the way around. And we have high expectations when dining out. So I don’t give these out easily! The calamari, the bisque, the filet mignon, fish and dessert were fabulous. This isn’t an inexpensive night out but well worth it."

Brilliantly innovative Thai cooking on the world's favorite island! Chef Prakong brings her artisan's skills to Maui Thai Bistro, a contemporary (and kitsch-free) Thai restaurant in South Maui. Brilliant lunch fare includes exotic tomyum fried rice, kao mun gai (chicken rice w tangy sauce), kiawe-smoked ribeye fried rice, drunken rice noodles, a truly authentic padthai, and much much more. Dinner features Prakong's artisanal homemade curries with a modern island twist, including to-die-for dishes as macnut short ribs panang, seared ahi choochee, pineapple kua curry, and plenty more.

"You can't go wrong eating here I'd you like thai food. Good location in a strip mall with lots of parking. More importantly - the food. Tasty, authentic and reasonably priced. We had a couple of seafood dishes, shrimp toast, jasmine rice and a couple asian beers. Simple night out but very enjoyable. The service was excellent."

"The setting is awesome and by all accounts this is the best restaurant in the area. Unfortunately, complacency may be settling in. The service was not attentive and the food (cioppino and mahi mahi) was over cooked and generally salty, except for the ahi poke which was delicious. We'd still go back."

Opening in 2007, Roy’s Waikiki fits right in with all the action in the new and exciting atmosphere of Waikiki Beach Walk. We offer inside tables, dining on the lanai or even at our Chef's counter. Along with Roy's classic items, our guests can enjoy a vast selection of innovative creations using the freshest local ingredients available.

"We dined at Roy's before in other cities. We looked forward to trying this location. Unfortunately this location does not live up to the standard of the other locations, whether in other Hawaii or in Florida (locations in our experience). The service was spotty, which we can appreciate given how busy they were. But the food - soups were salty and the fish was served too sweet. It just didn't feel like the Roy's we are used to."

A Cantonese term for “drink tea,” Yum Cha also has a cultural meaning to “go eat dim sum,” and that’s exactly what guests will do. By restauranteurs, Paul Lee and Aeron Lancero, diners can expect to see an array of homemade dim sum dishes representative of the past, present and future of Chinese fare, in addition we offer New Asian plates and Sushi. Executive Chef Rodelio Aglibot envisions a menu that highlights traditional Chinese dishes such as Peking Duck, Hong Kong Style Sweet and Sour Pork and Ma Po Tofu, alongside modern dishes that showcase a playful take on the cuisine.<br /><br />The restaurant is situated in Lakeshore East's Village Market complex, between Randolph Street and Benton Place, offering stunning views of the neighborhood and Chicago’s architectural gems. The 150-seat restaurant features a full service bar and seasonal patio dining.

"We've been to Yum Cha many times. Food is always good, but service remains hit and miss. This last time - clear 'miss'. The rookie (he admitted) couldn't carve the Peking duck correctly. We were left with very little meat for the first course and I doubt what was left of the duck made it all back in the second course. Back to the first course - with 4 at the table, why only serve 7 buns for the duck?? Make it an even 2 each without us having to ask. And fill glasses of water without having your patrons constantly ask. Dumplings, noodles and other dishes were great.
We like the food and location so we'll be back. Hopefully service will he a 'hit' then."
