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

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Ko Olina. We ordered green curry fried rice and pha Thai and some other dishes and they all tastes really good, better than most of the Thai restaurants I have been. In our second visit I even ordered more and saved it for dinner. The place is small and not fancy,... More

We ate our little hearts out here and every bite was good. We had the Laoation sausage, papaya salad, larb, red curry chicken, fried chicken and the Thai ginger soup. All were really good and we eat alot of that food on a monthly basis. Place was packed and we could see why! Next time we visit Hawaii, we will... More

We were excited to try this Thai place out. It did not disappoint. Food was good, service was friendly, and I was happy that I got my craving satisfied. The only negative thing about this place is that it is tiny - there are so many tables, that people are pushed together and really cramped. Otherwise, this is a great... More

Kapolei finally has a good Thai restaurant. 7 of us walked in for dinner and took the last seats. We ate the Tom Yum which was perfectly seasoned. The Red Curry was spot on. Pad Thai was satisfactory. And the Papaya Salad was spicy and tasty but be careful "medium" will burn up the hardest of tongues. As usual, the... More

Ono food. If you ask for Thai hot.. be prepared.. it's brutal and very good. The prices are expensive compared to other Thai restaurants, but definitely worth it. My son loves their fried chicken and stuffed chicken wings appetizers. All the curries are very good.. love their panang curry with sticky rice. Service is good, but if it is busy... More
