If there’s one thing Maui could use more of, it’s Indian flavors. Thank goodness for Monsoon India, a humble restaurant at the north edge of Kihei—without it, we’d have to board a plane to enjoy piping-hot naan bread and crisp papadum. The chicken korma here is creamy and fragrant, the chana masala spicy and satisfying. Even the simple dal curry is delightful. With tables that overlook Maalaea Bay, this serene spot is lovely just before sunset—particularly during winter when whales are jumping. Note: The open-air dining room is closed when it rains.
