Continues to please!

The staff continues to dazzle with economical, delicious Thai food in a comfy environment with family friendly service. The best Thai food in town rests in this small, quaint restaurant.

Small and intimate, closes early but worth every minute there. Food is fresh and served fast. The Green Papaya salad is out of this world. The Curries are flavorful and spicy but not burn your mouth out. Recommend for any Thai lover

We stopped by this small store front restaurant on a side street in Kailua to experience a delicious meal. We had Banh Mi Tom Nuong (grilled marinated shrimps stuffed into a French bread with Vietnamese style pickled daikon, carrots, cucumber, and cilantro), Tom Thit Nuong Cha Gio (grilled pork and shrimp served over cold rice noodles topped w/ bean sprouts,...

We ordered the "most popular menu item" which was the grilled chicken, shrimp and spring rolls. The chicken tasted re-heated and the noodles were cold and fish flavored. Would not recommend this particular item. The fried rice was average and not worth the 12$ in my opinion.

As others have said, the first thing the waitress said was "we close at three". Not exactly what we wanted to hear after a plane ride and drive. She and the other woman did not seem friendly at all. The thai iced tea tasted weak and watered down, and the curried vegetables also tasted watered down, with a side of... More

A hidden, simple place. No frills, just good food! We started with the Thai spring rolls which were great. My husband had the spicy Thai garlic shrimp, deliciously garlicky. Not for the faint of heart. I had the pork noodles which was so yummy, light and refreshing. Definitely recommend this place.

Our party of 4 had a super meal here! The restaurant was filled to capacity and they were short staffed. Aside from a bit of a wait for our server to take our orders, everything was fantastic. The food arrived in record time, huge portions, piping hot and definitely one of the best, and by far the cheapest, meal we've... More

No frills eatery with great food at reasonable prices. Knowledgeable and friendly waitress who took the time to explain entre details. Now to the food. Prior to the entrees our appetizer was Thai Spring Rolls which were perfect openers for the main event. We had these two entrees. My wife had Pad Thai Chicken Noodle Bowl with medium spice heat....
