Good meal, not great

Basic Asian rice plates that are what your expect, but nothing more. Many dishes had been made a bit more bland than normal, but I wonder if you could ask to have them kick up the spice level (not just hot spice, but flavor spices too) to be more authentic. Good choice for Sunday night quick... read more

This was a delicious place at a little food court! I was able to pick something up while my husband got something else! The Kalua Pork was excellent and the Summer Rolls with peanut sauce ruled too! The portion size for the Kalua Pork could very well be shared along with the summer rolls really! I had to take some... More

I was craving a good Thai meal after discussing the opening of a new Thai restaraunt in Hanalei in a few months time. I was very disappointed with the food, lacking in flavour and taste. Seemed to be more third rate Chinese than Thai. Give it a miss!

This little place is situated in a small courtyard at the Princeville Shopping Centre. Nothing fancy, but the food is great. It's Chinese and Thai inspired. You can get takeout or eat at tables in the little courtyard. You can even bring your own bottle and enjoy a glass of wine or a beer. All-in-all a nice, relaxing dinner spot.

I always judge a Thai restaurant by its Pad Thai. This was horrible, four small pieces of chicken, a flavor of grease and spices I could not describe. It was very red in color. Friend had spring rolls, they were inedible.

We spotted the Lotus Garden and decided to give it a try. We we ever pleasantly surprised. You go in and order your food and then it is delivered... More

We really enjoy the Lotus Garden. Papaya Salad is excellent, actually everything is excellent. We ate here numerous times.

We all really loved the food. We ordered take out for a group of six and it was ready in 10 minutes. My favorite was the shrimp lo mein and the orange garlic chicken.

this is a walk-up-to-the-counter, eat-out-at-the-common-area restaurant, little thai restaurant. we loved it! the steamed fish with ginger is delicious, as are the string beans! the owner is a young man who does a great job with customers, and i'm always impressed with hard-working young people. he also has an elderly gentleman working there who says he worked with the owner's...
