If you like Thai food, this small place is among the best in Hawaii. Uniformly superb Thai cuisine by Mama Toy served in a pleasant ambiance in the back corner of the Windward City Shopping Center's entrance from King Kamehameha Highway in Kaneohe. The consistently fresh, beautifully prepared dishes and excellent warm table service have generated a very loyal (and... More

The menu is diverse, the food preparation is very good, and the service is attentive. But the furnishings really need updating; the dining room looks like an elderly maiden aunt's parlor. A few thousand dollars in improvements would return a lot more in increased business.

We hadn't been to Chao Phya Thai for a couple months and went again a few nights ago. We were so glad we did!! It was such a good meal!! Their sweet and sour mahi was delicious as well as the cashew nut noodles and a green bean curry. We also got the vegetarian spring rolls which were great. Yum!!!

Looking for great authentic Thai Food? This is another place very popular with the locals. Family owned and operated. Come say hi to Mama Toi, she's a kick-in-the-pants :-)

Food was exellent and their homemade ice-cream was the best home made ice-cream I have ever tasted! Atmosphere was also very nice... If you travel around Oahu don't miss this place.

A small, cozy Thai local restaurant which has same ownership for many, many years. Take your own bottle of wine to enhance the delicious meal options. A large, authentic menu, in a small intimate dining restaurant on a busy intersection in a Windward shopping center.

I first ate here 24years ago. The food was excellent then as it is now. Although we arrived before the opening hour (Sunday it's 5pm) we were welcomed in. When I explained that this was my favorite place to eat years ago, when I lived here, Mama Toy explained that she was the cook back then and took over the... More

Hard to find, tucked into Windward Village Shopping strip mall, next to the Starbucks - but a winner. You'll be crammed into tables along with locals celebrating family dinners. Very fresh, lots of good choices. We loved our salads, but the entrees at adjoining tables looked and smelled great too. Reasonable prices and fairly fast service. Nothing fancy, but that's... More

Our local Thai restaurant has a charming atmosphere and friendly service. The hostess, Mama Toy, welcomes everyone like old friends. The food is quite good, especially the fried fish. One thing I would not order is the Thai coffee. Last time I ordered it, it tasted like it was poured from a can.
