Charley's is located in the back of the Queen's Shops at Waikoloa. The decor is pleasant, and the food is authentic and plentiful. Prices are very reasonable given the inflated tabs you expect in the area. The menu is extensive, and the small listing of combination plates provides a good variety of options to sample several specialties. The chef is... More

Just had dinner there and the food was good with the prices quite reasonable. I thought the noodle soup was a not a good imitation of the Vietnamese pho (beef noodle soup) but was edible. The spring rolls were somewhat average - too much cabbage. Overall, I would come back but would order different dishes.

The food here was good and the prices weren't crazy high. The service was decent (and yes island service is slower than on the mainland) but this was decent as far as island standards is concerned. We had the coconut shrimp as an appetizer which was good and we had the green curry and cashew chicken for the entree's and... More

We are always on the lookout for decent Thai food. We went for lunch and the specials were reasonably priced (for Hawaii) with nice portion sizes. We would eat here again!

Not so touristy. Pretty good food. The service was perfect in a comfortable setting. The flavors are not that strong and the hot spice level is very low. I liked the Salmon special and the Thai coffee.

The food at Charley's was fresh but somewhat flavorless. It was well-presented and the service was terrific, but the food was bland.

We have eaten there twice this trip and the food was great both times. The service was also outstanding. It is one of our favorite restaurants.

I couldn't eat much of either dish that was served. I usually can't stop eating good Thai food. After two bites I couldn't eat any more. I tried a few more bites, but I found the flavors to be poorly executed and the vegetables looked like they weren't fresh. I feel bad for the owners as they have a poor... More

We would have missed this restaurant if we weren't looking on the mall's directory for eating options. It is tucked away from the main center walkway near the shuttle stop. We were glad we stopped in for lunch. The lunch menu is very reasonable. We both ordered the Pad Thai with spring rolls, medium spicy. This place was a welcomed... More
