Mema's is no longer in Kapaa. It is in Lihue and I strongly recommend it. The yellow curry was excellent as was the chicken satay.

We had a very good meal and lovely service at Mema Thai and Chinese Cuisine. It used to be in Kapaa and it moved to Lihue. The telephone no. is the same 808-823-0899, https://www.google.com/#q=mema+thai+kauai+menu). The room is nicely decorated with rosewood furniture. We sat in the back near the window (and away from the air conditioners). We were surprised that... More

We went to Mema and had a great dinner! Great that you could bring your own wine in without any uncorking fee! Enjoyed the food and service! Went back a few nights later and they were literally packing up the place. Their new location in Lihue looks like a good location and will get lots of drive by traffic but... More

We are very disappointed. They moved to a new location and are not open. After reading about the restaurant in Hawaii magazine, and all the reviews on tripadvisor, we were really looking forward to trying this place.

We actually ate here twice during our 4 night stay in Kauai. Food was excellent and service was good. I had the Yellow Curry one night with boiled rice and the Red Curry the other night. Also proved to be very good value. Very convenient location as well just off the Kuhio highway.

We live on Kauai, and have for over 40 years! We are all above average cooks, but we treat ourselves to Mema's at least once a week, their food is fantastic! I also travel to Thailand several times a year, and am pretty well versed on what good Thai food should taste like, and Mema's is excellent! It saddens me... More

First visit to Kauai and I got Mema's Curry; it was really good. My friend got the Pad Thai and she said it tasted really fishy.

I can't recommend this place at all! The curry dish and the lemon chicken were okay, but the Pad Thai was terrible - flavorless and only a very few pathetic little shrimp in it.
