I suggest the green papaya salad, summer rolls, and sweet potato tapioca. yummmm! The servers are friendly. The place looks drab outside, but once you step inside it's like teleporting to thailand. so colorful and beautifully decorated. Favorite restaurant in Pahoa, by far!

Simple, rustic venue. Excellent food. My food was ordered medium spice and it was probably hot by other thai standards, so be careful. Food was fresh and high quailty and reasonably price. You are paying for food here, not atmosphere.

This is a lively place locals obviously love, and we did too. The fried calamari may be the best calamari we have ever had, and we are big calamari fans. The vegetable and curry dishes were well prepared and featured obviously fresh ingredients. Service was quick, friendly and helpful. Even the ice cream was above average.

The Panang and Masaman curries taste just like those in Ko Samui sometimes better as in tourist areas good Thai food has been sacrificed to sell seafood and steaks. If you book ahead at weekends you can sit in the window and watch the Punatics pass by-the kine people with characters galore and plenty of Aloha. Take in your own... More

We had a really decent Thai meal here after a day of adventure. The curries were good, the eggplant was excellent. They had a crab fried rice special that was absolutely delicious. We ordered the noodles with seafood spicy and it did not disappoint. The curies were ordered mild and had good flavour. The Thai iced tea is lacked a... More

We ordered take out and brought the food back to our room. Very good Thai. Beware that the chili (you can order it on the side) is HOT. Order more rice than you normally do...it costs extra, btw, but portions of rice are small. "Family size" is okay for 2 people only, IMO.

We enjoy take out from this Thai restaurant. We've only had positive experiences with the items we've ordered (curries, various noodle dishes and fried rice). The spice is quite nice, although the medium spice is not as hot as one might expect of a more local Thai place. My only complaints are that the vegetable dishes could use more vegetables,... More

Not just in Pahoa (the place to see and be seen) but to rival any on the windward side at least! Delicious curries, lovely staff, sweet place. We're frequent customers when in our BI home.
