Star Noodle to reopen at new Lahaina location

By Staff | Nov 6, 2020

Chef Abby Ferrer joined Star Noodle in 2017. She previously taught at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts and worked as sous chef and executive sous chef for Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto in both his Miami and Wailea restaurants.

LAHAINA — Star Noodle recently announced it will reopen in early November at a new Lahaina location.

Previously located at 286 Kupuohi St., Star Noodle will be moving to 1285 Front St, in the space previously home to sister restaurant Aloha Mixed Plate.

“The move to a completely open-air space made sense for us at this time. The move to a bigger restaurant gives us the opportunity to double our capacity while implementing social distancing protocols, which would not have been possible at our former, much smaller home,” General Manager Nicky Boskoff explained.

“We have such a strong local following, and we are excited to give our kama’aina the opportunity to dine with us again without the significant wait times that we have experienced in recent years. All of our employees are trained in new sanitation guidelines, we are introducing online ordering for to-go food, and we look forward to welcoming reservations and walk-ins to our new home while following strict COVID-19 safety measures.”

Star Noodle first opened its doors in February 2010, offering up fresh noodles, sake cocktails and Asian-inspired share plates.

Located off the beaten track in the Lahaina Industrial Park, the Maui restaurant soon created a buzz with local residents and island guests, who flocked to sample its unique flavors and family-style dining.

The restaurant will continue to share its popular signature dishes under dynamic Executive Chef duo Abby Ferrer and Ahren Uyeda.

Star Noodle has received numerous awards with Chef Abby at the helm, including gold ‘Aipono Awards for “Maui’s Best Asian Cuisine” and “Maui’s Best Noodles” in 2018, 2019 and 2020. USA Today also recently named Star Noodle in its Top 10 restaurants in the State of Hawaii.

Former executive sushi chef at Three’s Bar and Grill, executive sous chef at Morimoto Maui and executive chef at Miso Phat Sushi, Chef Ahren joins the new-look Star Noodle from the Aloha Mixed Plate team.

Star Noodle is part of the Na Holaoha ‘Ekolu restaurant group that owns and operates Old Lahaina Luau, Aloha Mixed Plate, Star Noodle, Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop and Hoaloha Bakeshop.
