Tiny place, good food

I have been aching for good Thai for a while....it's been about two years since I had any that was decent. When we moved to Kapolei, I immediately noticed this Thai restaurant and got pretty excited. We finally had a chance to check it out this week. The shopping center in which it is located is... read more

My husband and I ate here on a Sunday. It was early around five and we got in. However soon after it filled up due to the small space. Food arrived hot a fast. Flavors were awesome and service attentive.

I love Thai food so when I saw this restaurant was highly rated, we just had to go there. A little hard to find in that it's in a strip mall and not clearly visible from the street. This is a very clean and pleasant place. Our waitress was very nice and quite helpful. We ordered the summer rolls (fresh... More

Came here for dinner on a Friday night and were really glad we did. Food was very good and the prices were reasonable. We had the chicken sa tay for an appetizer which was delicious. Four generous sticks along with a nice peanut dipping sauce. For mains, we had the pineapple pork fried rice and the shrimp pad thai. Both... More

We have been to this restaurant 4 times now and we think the food is really good. It's a good value; the restaurant is clean; service is good and most of the time parking is available, but you may have to circle the lot a couple of times b4 finding an open space.

My 1st recommendation for Thai food in all of Hawaii. Pad Thai is a must. The pineapple curry is my favorite (I hate curry) I have ordered this approximately 6x already. This is one of my regular spots when I home. I live alone so eat out regularly, and this is one of my go to spots.

Family owned and operated, simple dishes, quality food. Always ate good food at reasonable prices. Sometimes hard to get a seat of a weekend, but never a long wait.

Kapolei doesn't have an overabundance of good food and we were hopeful that Thai Lao would be a great meal. Being Singaporean by birth and with my wife's part Chinese ancestry along with extensive travelling experience in Asia, we definitely enjoy Thai food and had high hopes for our first experience with Thai Lao. Located in a strip mall (like... More

If you're in the west side of the island, this is a MUST go to little place. Tucked away by a Starbucks and Jamba Juice, this Thai place rivals most on the island. Warning, if you say Thai hot, it really is Thai HOT. It'll make you sweat. The summer rolls are huge compared to most places and very fresh.... More
