Delicious

On our way back from visiting Volcanoes National Park and starving, we decided to order take out. Excellent service, food and location! Excited to revisit downtown Pahoa and check out the local fare.

We went there due to the recommendation of our lessor as we were looking for healthy asian food. We found what we were looking for. Ning's is a small restaurant, has a large menu of various thai plattern (veggie, fish, chicken, meat, etc.) and provides a great price value ratio. It is family-runned (we think) by very kind people .... More

The flavors are still there, but the quality of the overall meal has deteriorated to the point I doubt I will return there. I live locally and have been dining at Ning's for at least 11 years. There has been a slow and steady decline of the meals for the last few years. The spices and fresh vegetable ingredients are... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find this little hole in the wall Thai restaurant. Don't be fooled by the outside appearance!!! Service was great!! Many many take out orders being called in. The summer rolls are HUGE and delicious!!!! The dipping sauces are amazing. I ordered the green curry with chicken for my entire and chicken pad Thai to go.... More

You wouldn't expect to find good Thai food in a little town in Hawaii but Ning's is surprisingly good. The summer rolls were really good. Charming and efficient service and freshly cooked and flavourful dishes. We plan to eat there again.

Sitting in this restaurant on the main street of Pahoa you will relax in the casual atmosphere of the open windows hung with icicle lights. Indicate mild, medium, hot or very hot for your order. Unless you really enjoy spicy food, I suggest you order mild. My husband liked the degree of heat in the medium but I ended up... More

Ate lunch here about June 17th and it was wonderful! Authentic, fresh food with scrumptious flavors. Generous servings. Service was impeccable (although there was only two other tables being occupied at the time we arrived which was about 3 p.m.) as was the cleanliness of the restaurant. Pleasant, calming atmosphere. This will become one of our 'regulars' when we visit... More

My favorite cuisine is Thai food so I was excited to stumble upon Ning's Thai Cuisine in Pahoa. The food was good, but I felt like it could have been better (especially for the prices they charge). It was a little runny. The ingredients didn't taste that fresh. With that said, I did enjoy enjoy my Green curry dish and... More

The food at Ning's is creative, fresh and prepared to order. Flavors are bright and authentic and the prices are reasonable for Pahoa-town. The owners are in the kitchen, so you can be sure the quality is superior. Although the service can be on the slow side at times, this is a friendly, pleasant, family-run business, so sit back, have... More

I went here with a friend and it was ok. I'm not crazy about Thai, but others seemed to love it. It's the busiest Thai restaurant in town, now it's the only one since the other one closed down due to the lava flow. If you like Thai, I've heard this is really good.
