We eat here often since we live in Princeville. The staff is lovely ......always. The food varies in quality...tonight we had one of the best meals we've had there.....perhaps new chef or who knows...but it was a great surprise....we will continue to eat there and hope to be surprised often

Great place for a quick meal that's not fast food on the north shore. It was recommended to us by local residents. Located in a food court, the atmosphere is what you'd expect, but the food was great!

We stopped here to grab a quick dinner. Fried rice, spring rolls, and hot and sour soup were all excellent. Prices were cheaper than other local places. Recommend for those on a budget looking for a quick good meal.

Our adult kids enjoyed it. The husband & I, not so much. Let's just say we tried it and it did the trick for one night's dinner and it was inexpensive.

The Honey Walnut Shrimp is so so so very good. The shrimp are large and you get plenty. I am not sure why Chinese restaurants charge for rice, but oh well. There's a small area that you can eat at or take it to the Bay and enjoy sunset while eating some of the tastiest shrimp around.

I had mixed vegetables and brown rice very good and freshly made to order! Another visit I had Tom Yum soup with shrimp and it was delicious!

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.
