Authentic Thai Food in Paia Maui
As you know, my dad stayed with us this winter on Maui, for 4 months. Before he headed back to Vancouver, he wanted to have a nice family dinner out to show his appreciation. He noticed this sign in Paia - AUTHENTIC THAI FOOD - and went in to inquire. Not impressed with Cheeseburgers on the menu, he spoke with the man running the place about what else they could cook. Turns out they have a large oceanfront property, and nobody's using that back area by the beach.
My crafty old dad arranged for us to have our own private dinner party in the back - dining outdoors unders the palms. He arranged the whole event, picked the menu and coordinated for us all to meet there at 5:30. What a nice surprise!
A Wonderful Dining Experience at Paia's Garden
We were greeted with fresh spring rolls - always a winner - and the food kept on coming - green papaya salad, chicken curry, noodles, rice, beef.... yummy. All very nicely presented. We brought our own beer and wine and toasted the occasion. The best part was we got to meet Nui - she's the Thai woman who did the cooking and grows all the vegetables too! She's amazing. She has a farm up in Kula where she grows veggies for the farmers markets and for various restaurants. It doesn't get any fresher than this!
I can hardly wait to this again, and I'm spreading the word.
