Customer Reviews

 Mr. Larry Badua, Chef and Owner of Badua Catering.  Mr. Badua is an incredibly creative chef and a very hard working and very responsible person.

I have been fortunate to experience his cooking and serving abilities.  I hired Mr. Badua to do a dinner for the dozen Catholic Priests here on Maui.  He did an outstanding job and everyone truly enjoyed the experience.  He was very professional and gracious in preparing and serving the dinner.  The priests still speak about this dinner that took place over a year ago

I was also in attendance at a Rehearsal Dinner that took place at my home in Kihei.  We had guests from all over the world and the bride’s family wanted them to experience the local foods and flavors of our Island home.  Chef Badua took the time throughout the evening to patiently explain to the guests all the foods that he had prepared and why they were selected for the evening’s feast.  The bride and groom along with their family and friends were very happy with the meal and truly had a great time that evening.  Chef Badua’s participation added greatly to the whole occasion

He also takes time to give back to the community as well as participate in the community’s events.  He is always present at the 4th Friday Town Party in Kihei and everyone loves his crepes. 

This young man is worth supporting and will certainly make you proud of all that he will be able to accomplish here on Maui.  He is a responsible person and will work very hard to fulfill his responsibilities.  He is young, energetic and very committed to his trade.  I truly believe that he is one of our young and upcoming chefs.  Please give him a chance to prove his worth

With best wishes, I remain,

Sincerely in Christ

Larry of Badua Catering provided a meal for my daughter’s rehearsal dinner in Kihei, HI in February 2013.  Our experience with them was outstanding.  They were very attentive to our needs and even went out of their way to accommodate a VERY last minute change in schedule.

 My daughter selected a local-style menu, and the food was all delicious, served nice and hot (or cold, as appropriate) and presented beautifully.  Larry himself set everything up at our venue and we were very pleased with the entire experience.  Our guests, both locals and visitors from out of Hawaii (including international visitors) enjoyed the food.

 I am happy to recommend Larry of Badua Catering

First heard of Badua's while attending Wailuku First Friday.  A friend stumbled upon their website and printed out the menu, so a bunch of us at work decided to order some lunch because they offer free delivery (I'm pretty sure it's within the Kahului/Wailuku areas only.)

Chicken cutlet - Very good.  Pretty much it's chicken katsu with a light brown gravy.  I'm not into having normally crispy foods mixed in gravy, but to my surprise there was still a crunch to the breading.  I actually wanted more gravy!  Side of mac salad and two scoops of rice.

Nutella crepe - Awesome.  First bought this hot & fresh at the Wailuku First Friday street fair.  Bananas, walnuts, whipped cream & chocolate Nutella.  

Some of us were craving the roast pork plate lunch but it was sold out pretty early in the morning which was a bummer.  Definitely gonna try again!  Great addition to the limited selections in town.  Nice portions and great prices.
