China Boat takes the modern approach to their authentic Chinese dishes–specifically, no MSG. Instead, they use herbs from their private garden in the back of China Boat to flavor their incredible dishes. Their lunch special changes daily and are the perfect way to get your Chinese food fix. With their generous portions and friendly service, it’s no wonder MauiTime readers voted them best. 4474 L. Honoapiilani Hwy, Kahana; 808-669-5089; chinaboatkahana.com
