Welcome to Star Noodle

Early this year, the owners of the Old Lahaina Luau opened a new restaurant above Lahaina Cannery Mall. It started out as a 3,500-square-foot culinary center and warehouse, but they later decided to have an intimate restaurant in front to cater to locals and visitors. The team researched hip and trendy noodle spots in Asia and New York, and brought a piece of that action to Maui.

I stopped by during a trip to Maui a few months back to see why this eatery has become a favorite among Maui locals and a destination for visitors.

Yaaay, fuud prom again. Darn... I stopped and was salivating at the Warabi salad. I haven't seen Warabi sold in HNL in a long time. Oh that's one winning salad, imho! Some Shoyu, little bit Sesame Oil, dash of Togarashi, then toss the salad would be my choice of dressing if I had a choice.

The Mau`i Garlic Beef with Waipouli Green's and one bowl of Saimin or the Garlic Noodles is enough for me! Next year when I get to Mau`i I'll make sure to drive out to Lahaina for lunch.

Wine Gurl: Neat post. the pixs are so realistic, one wants to lick the screen. You guys really do a guud job with fuud pix. No need for dry ice smoke and/or lighted sparklers to enhance the visual flavor! By the bye, is this place more for locals or tourii?

@Annoddah_Dave This place is above Lahaina Cannery Mall, so in theory it would attract more tourists, but it's really geared toward locals IMHO. As a result, I think they get a little of each.

@nonstopmari Yes! The chef traveled to various places to get a better idea of the trends and ingredients that make noodles successful!

@mjc_808 Thanks! And you're right, a bunch of people is best. When I saw the menu, I couldn't decide on what to eat!
