GREAT food!

The chicken panang is the BEST I have ever had! The combination appetizer is perfect. The service is a bit slow and the ambiance just so-so but I think it is the best Thai food you can find on the island. Parking is scarce.

The food was amazing, but the staff were way over worked! There were only two servers running the whole dining room! However these servers earned every penny!!! They ran their bits off and made sure everyone was taken care of in a timely fashion! Best service we have received while in Hawaii and best Thai food around!!

The Pad Thai tasted like the sauce was made with ketchup. Totally inedible. We ordered spring rolls and the manager came over to put them on our table (we only found out it was the manager later when we went up to complain) and they only gave us 5 out of 6 spring rolls and he muttered something as he...

This is a really terrific restaurant. My son had the Pad Thai and I the duck curry. With two sodas the bill came to $33, very good value anywhere but especially on Oahu. Highly recommend.

Champa Thai has become one of our go-to spots for dinner with the kids! We have eaten here a half dozen times and the kids now ask to go to "the Thai place" about once a week! They started out eating the Pad Thai (who doesn't love it?), but now ask for Massaman curry and sticky rice. The chicken satay... More

This family owned and operated Thai Restaurant is fantastic! The service is wonderful and friendly and efficient. The food is fresh and of healthy high quality. It is becoming my new favorite Thai Restaurant in Kalua!

Ordered mixed starter which was absolutely delicious $15 shared between 2 well worth it very tasty. Fir dinner we ordered panang curry and red curry apart from ingredients both dishes tasted same so would recommend a different dish if sharing with another person for variety felt the staff should have mentioned they were very similar. The music while eating was... More

They actually deserve a four plus. Great food, service and ambiance. I liked the decor and general feeling of the place very much. Staff were all very pleasant, if a little busy. It took a while to get someone to place my order. My dish was very good, the bittermelon curry with tofu. Portion size was moderate. I was able... More
