Good Thai

This was the closest Thai to home so we frequently visited. Very friendly service, but can be somewhat slow when busy. Restaurant needs some TLC on the interior. The spicy Tom Yum soup was my wife's favorite. Food is good quality and taste at a decent price. You must ask if you want extra... read more

Closest to the house, decent tasting, non-chain Thai food. When don't want to cook after a hard day's work, this place fits the bill. I'm always a sucker for good rare beef salad (sometimes known as long rice salad). This place makes it close to what I remember from my travels. Wife always gets the standard Pad Thai with shrimp,...

Recently visited Kapolei while staying in Ko Olina Beach Club and wanted some Thai food. Thai Lao had some great reviews so decided to give it a try. Place is very nice and clean. Food was authentic, but I was looking for some specific Thai dishes that I had experienced while and Thailand and they did not offer them. Service... More

Grabbed a quick lunch here 2 days ago. There was lots to choose from and I had the beef in oyster sauce and my boyfriend had shrimp in mixed vegetables. Two standard dishes and the taste was also relatively standard. The shrimp was a bit bland but the beef was nice and tasty. I enjoyed my meal and the price... More

The Pearl City location has been open for about one month. Very clean, newly renovated with a friendly staff. Food was super. Wife had Sea Food Curry and I had Pad kea mao (drunken noodles) and we shared a Green Papaya Salad. We ordered spicy and was not disappointed! Going back soon with another couple who shares our fondness for... More

Nothing fancy, but really wonderful food, and a great menu. If staying in the area, I would highly recommend.

This is the best Thai restaurant in the area. Located in a busy area of Kapolei. Gotta make is early or you'll have to wait to get seated since its a small place but it's worth the wait. Delicious is the word.

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 CRAMPED; very little parking... 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
