Mala is available for private parties, buyouts and wedding rehearsal dinners as well as birthdays.
Our restaurant sits on the waters edge where we can accommodate up to 78 people.

We can offer special menus designed for your needs.

We offer a full bar and a pretty darn good wine list.

We have plenty of parking. Next to us we have ten spaces and adjacent to us we have Thirty parking spaces in two lots. We also have the pleasure of having the Lahaina Cannery as our landlord where you can use their massive parking lot and take a short walk across the street to us.

We are directly across the street from the Safeway Market at the Lahaina Cannery, right on the water.

Mark and Judy Ellman, who owned the memorablemark ellman
Avalon Restaurant some years ago, gutted a small restaurant space on the water near Mala Wharf and created a sophisticated, light-filled restaurant/bar. A menu statement explains the concept: small plates, organic whenever possible, whole grains, no preservatives, no hydrogenated oils and everything in proportion.
