This is the place. Of course it's locally owned. This is Molokai! They have a few tables, and you watch your meal being prepared, but everybody is friendly. A good call if you like rubbing elbows.

I had their teriyaki chicken and it was delicious! Auntie Teri from the bookstore recommends this restaurant as well.

A nice place for lunch with outside seating. The portions are large so come hungry. Lots of locally caught fish on the menu.

Maka's was the first restaurant that I ate at upon arrival. Now, on reflection, I think I enjoyed my best Molokai restaurant meal on Molokai. I now forget what the dish is called, but the hamburger patties that arrived on rice smothered in gravy were divine. So simple, yet so delicious. I haven't had anything like it before or since.

This little take out offers a big menu....but their #1 hit is their saimins. They offer anything from miso saimin to curry saimin. They also have all kinds of local plate lunches, burgers and sandwiches and also the famous Teri Chicken Salad. They have a few umbrella table outside if you want to eat there, but their food is good... More

This was a wonderful surprise on a night we were looking for something "local." The loco moco and the saimin were delicious! Reasonable prices, too.

One of the best places to have local food for lunch. Many favorites are at this place such a Katsu Chicken, Saimin, or even a Veal Cutlet.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Maka's again this year. Although I only stopped for a bacon cheeseburger the service was as good as I remember it. For a small, corner walk-in, take-out facility the menu is quite extensive, the service is great, the food is tasty and they accept credit cards. There are a number of outside tables with... More

Tried a burger. It was tasty. Counter help was friendly. Building too small for indoor seating. Must sit outside along a road that is relatively busy for Molokai.
