Kamado Maui Review


2020 Chef of the Year Taylor Ponte and event planner Natasha Joslin run multi-course kitchen takeovers on Maui that you’ll never forget.

With distancing and small group dining more important than ever, we’re grateful that Kamado is offering incredible meals in a new, accessible way.

Multiple Courses in your Home

We enjoyed amuse bouche, three courses with an intermezzo, and dessert in a beautiful home in Wailuku.  They also served fresh bread and we brought our own wine. One of the stand out dishes was the freshly made lobster tortellini with squash, creme fraiche, and brown butter.

Unique Dishes

Each dish had unique, complementary flavors that made for a delicious meal.  My wife has some pretty significant food allergies, and Chef Taylor went out of his way to develop dishes alongside the others.   She didn’t miss out on the flavors of each dish and felt heard (something too rare in the culinary world.)

A Perfect Night

The roasted duck breast with braised fennel, almonds, and apricot jam was incredible.  Chef Ponte shared details about each dish that just accentuated every bite.  We knew where he sourced ingredients and why.  Service from Natasha was perfect, often with insights into the meal that go well beyond any fine dining server (she’s far more than a server, with vast experience both behind the line and in front of the house.)

Kamado Chef's Table

All in all, it was a night we won’t forget.  Mahalo to our Maui chefs that love food and service so much that they’ll bring it to you!  If you intend on reserving a night with them, you’ll need to do it soon.  Word is out, and they’re booking up solid. (808) 281-7979

This is the best pizza we’ve had on Maui. Restaurant Marlow is owned and operated by Maui chef Jeff Scheer in Pukalani, Maui.

Hana Farms Restaurant

Hana Farms Restaurant

Hana Farms is a must-stop experience along the Road to Hana. Their Bamboo Hale Grill & Pizzeria and their bakery are amazing!

Everything was delicious! The salmon was a touch overdone, but that’s my only complaint. The “bacon” and eggs stole the show though.
