I lived on Oahu for six years, and since I left 3 years ago, I go back every 6-12 months. When I lived there, I would regularly make the trip from Honolulu to Kailua to eat at Champa Thai, and I always come to here to eat at least once during my visits. On this most recent trip back at... More

We love Champa Thai! It's our favorite place to eat out with friends or family in Kailua. The food is excellent, the service attentive and friendly, and the prices reasonable. The atmosphere is casual, but cozy with interesting Asian-themed art and decor. They have one extra-long table suitable for large parties. We always start with the Tom Kha soup -... More

The food was really good, but there was only one waiter for a full restaurant. Maybe it was just an off night? If you are in the area, and want thai....eat here, if you have time.

Champa Thai was very crowded and busy, but we were greeted and seated quickly. The menu was full of very tasty dishes and we tried a lot of them. They have brown rice available as well as sticky rice, so everyone was happy. The dishes we ordered included a green curry, sauteed eggplant with chicken, a ginger dish with long... More

"Surprised" because the reviews I read were not representative of our visit. We found this restaurant to be one of our better finds in Kialua. We also found the staff to be friendly, welcoming, well-informed and helpful. The food was excellent, properly spiced, nicely portioned and delivered in a timely fashion. Prices are moderate and reasonable with the most costly... More

Two servers in a 2/3 full room wanting some up-dating. Despite a team effort by the two, service throughout the evening was lagging. Food did not impress. Both the red and green curries had plenty gravy sparsely littered with vegetables and protein. Honey shrimp were medium, butterflied and heavily breaded to appear larger. Alcohol may be self-supplied, and will be... More

We ate here twice while in Kailua and thought it was very good, authentic Thai food. Portions are generous and the food was fresh. Excellent summer rolls. The yellow curry with tofu was very delicious. My daughter, who is not adventurous, loved the chicken fried rice.

Great food and you can bring your own beer or wine! Bring an opener so you don't have to bother the staff. Love the Tom Ka with chicken, love the spring rolls. Get there early parking is extremely limited (4-5 spots) I am a foodie and this is great food. You will have food to go with any meal and... More

For some reason, Thai restaurants have a hard time attracting enough patrons, Champa does not. The reason is simple, the food is authentic and very good, the portions plentiful, the real Thai waitresses are friendly and the local waiters bend over backwards to make you happy. Champa was an all around good experience that is very affordable. If you like... More

We stopped for lunch shortly before closing at 2pm and found this small restaurant in a non description strip mall. We were quickly seated and enjoyed a combo appetizer plate with Thai shrimp toast, egg roll and wonderful peanut chicken satay. My entree was requested to be spicy (not as spicy as I wanted) but the "Indian" style Thai curry... More
