Very good

Very close to where we stayed. Had the pad thai and spring rolls. Both were very tasty. My husband and I love Thai food and thought this place was great.

This place has really good Thai food. The ambiance is a bit lacking in the little mall its in, so we took it "to go" and watched the sunset with a bottle of wine at the St. Regis beach. Fabulous stir fried veggies and quick, friendly service. Wonderful evening.

OK, I hope someone can correct the name of the restaurant here, cuz it's been the Lotus Garden for a while now! Hubs & I have eaten here and gotten dinner entrees to-go on numerous occasions during our two-month stay in Princeville. This fast food joint is right next door to Frederico's in the food court at the shopping mall.... More

This is a convenient take- out spot in Princeville and adjacent to a nice public dining area with occasional performers and music during the evening. Most entrees are $10 or less. The food? Well, the Phad Thai is pretty good, but the other dishes were mostly disappointing. That said, there isn't a whole lot of choices for inexpensive Thai and... More

We felt this was very low grade Thai food, and personally, the worst I have ever eaten all over the world. About the only thing to be said in its defense was that it was cheap! It would probably suit tourists on vacation and on a budget but don't expect to be blown away by exceptional food or service. There... More

Great for take out. Half our family eats here and the rest at Mexican Food Resturant. You can eat there in the courtyard or take it home. Highly recommend.

Maybe we missed what those others were eating....some Thal food requires you to ask for more spice as most Western patrons cannot handle the intensity....so if it was too mild I am sure they will offer you extra spice....I like spice at 6 out of 10 my wife only 3...

This place was a small take-out place with multiple shops sharing an outside patio area with outside mello music in the evenings. Visited several times and always had a different special every day. You can't go wrong and you could always rely on decent meal for take-out. Very authentic Thai food that was great!
