Decent Thai. -- no frills no atmosphere

Stopped at Charley's for dinner. We were a little concerned because the Sushi place next door was packed but only 2 tables were taken in Charley's. Everyone enjoyed the entrees, the curry was excellent, we loved the Pad Thai (hard to screw it up) and the fried rice entrees were good as well... read more

We always dine at least once at Charley's. We've tried several dishes, all of which have been wonderful. The Ice Tea is always tasty. We've dined for both lunch and dinner with the menu selections being great for either.

Authentic Thai food. Relatively small restaurant in a shopping center. Can be noisy. Server is attentive but can have a wait if they get busy. Their curry food is very good, and the mild level is fine for most people.

It is a nice alternative to have the choice to eat Thai in Kamuela! This little restaurant is great for a meal for lunch or dinner and it is also great for take out.

Tried to go to Chinese food, but they were having their Christmas party. Lucky for us we found Charley's. Weather was cold, and rainy outside, and 51 degrees according to my car thermostat. My only complaint was they had all their ceiling fans running, and it was cold. I understand that working, and siting is two different things so I... More

We were very hungry and stopped here to have dinner. The portion size was good and the food was good but not outstanding. I would go back again when in the area.

Terrible food, horrible service. I ordered MILD curry and it was so spicy it was almost inedible - NO flavor, just spice... Waitress didn't have a clue....

I have been coming here for years to eat their fabulous Thai Food. They are located in the KTA Shopping Center in Waimea. I buy takeout every week from them for my family. Their food is excellent and highly recommend eating here.

Had the soft shell crab app coconut shrimp to start and it was delicious. Then went with the Mekong dish which was like a seafood melody with lobster, shrimp, mussels, calamari and man was that good! Both location serves alcohol and wine if you want to have a drink which was a plus. Will be coming in with friends next... More

Tried both locations in Waimea and Waikoloa. Quick and friendly service at both locations, and prices are very reasonable. Menus cater to everyone (kid friendly), with a wide variety of choices. Food is always fresh and packed with flavor, and also request your "spice" level. Red/green curry, sizzling beef, pad Thai, soft shell crab, just some of my favorites to... More
