Visiting Ka'anapali with my wife and stopped at Star Noodle for lunch today. We had attempted to have dinner a couple nights prior but there was a 1.5 hour wait so we opted to come back for lunch.
I can totally see the appeal of a place like this for an interesting menu concept but found the execution to be severely lacking. We ordered the pork buns, garlic noodles and Brussels sprouts. I found the cut of pork to be far too thick and not braised enough and the buns to be pretty close to wonder bread. The Brussels and garlic noodles were over oiled and didn't have a ton of natural flavor. Living in NY we have a lot of exposure to Korean fusion type cuisine especially at David Chang's restaurants so my expectations may have been skewed. I had really hoped Star Noodle would live up to the hype unfortunately I found the food passable at best.
