Excellent food and service

A large group of us had family style lunch over three tables and received a seemingly endless stream of dishes too numerous to name but including especially very fresh spring rolls, fried purple sweet potatoes, fried chicken and pad thai.

The food was very good. The service on the day of our visit was very slow. There were just two waiters for a lot of guests and it was hard to get their attention. We were on a tight time schedule to reach the airport and it was difficult to ask them for water, check or anything else. However, the... More

And it's Labor Day so many places were closed. Glad we found New Chiang Mai Thai open. Nice place on a quiet street. I liked the wood interior and the number of fans. It was a humid night and they don't have A/C. Or it wasn't on the night we were there. I had the Pad Thai with tofu and... More

My wife and I have eaten in restaurants all over the world, and we were blown away by the outstanding food, attentive wait staff, and excellent drinks at Chiang Mai including the day's specialty, their lilikoi martini. Excellent, comfortable atmosphere with attention to detail. We will eat here every time we're in Hilo. It's that good.

Chang Mai Fried Rice and Pineapple Fried Rice were outstanding! Spiciness is adjusted to your liking. We love the Red Curry with pumpkin but it had too much pumpkin! Coconut and mango ice creams felt fresh - you can feel tiny pieces of fruit in them. At the time we arrived, there were not that many people so the service... More

There were 5 of us for a late lunch. We were sat in the second room which was extremely hot. No one else was in that room and only one table of customers were in the entry room. We asked to move to the other cooler room, and the server said "No. It will get too crowded." Then he said... More

We got take-out from here last night. We tried to eat at our fav, Sombat, but they are closed on Sundays. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food. I had the yellow curry. It was very sweetly flavored with coconut milk and had lots of chicken and vegetables. Rest of family had Tom Yum soup. Husband ranks it... More

The Oriental hotel in Bangkok has one of the finest Thai restaurants in Thailand, The green Curry here in Hilo, Hawaii reminded me of why I liked the first Coconut –green Curry I had in Thailand 30 years ago. Get it at medium heat, sso that you don't mask the subtle undertones of a good green curry. The prices are... More

We have traveled around the world and were taken by surprise to find some of the best Thai food ever. try their green curry and squid salad. Squid is boiled and then grilled which is the only right way to have squid hard to fine but worth it when you can find it absolutely one of the best restaurants we... More
