I thought the food was pleasant but not delicious. Perhaps it's the somewhat milder Lao influence, or something else, that left me feeling like I just ate at a Thai version of Applebee's. The restaurant is very clean and service is also good. However for taste you're better off going to Rajanee, Siam Palace, or To Thai For to get... More

Finally a decent Thai food restaurant in Kapolei. Love the red and green curry. The eggrolls were so so though and the stuffed chicken people were liking was just average for me.

We have only gone here for dinner once but we order take out from Thai Lao 2 - 3 times a month! Everything really is very good and they got the spice level just right now. We stopped coming here for a while last year because our orders were too spicy even though I kept repeating "mild" when I call... More

Thai Lao in both locations is fantastic. Their new restaurant in Pearl City is near the Leeward Bowl (across the street). It is very good and service was excellent. There is a main room and a separate party room for larger groups. Loved their panang curry. Pad Thai was great. They had mango and sticky rice in season - always... More

The menu includes spring/summer rolls, seafood, salads, rice and noodles. If you are familiar with Southeast Asian cuisine, this restaurant will not disappoint. The dining room is home to 12 tables and configuration is open to accommodate large parties if necessary. The restaurant staff is attentive and the quality of product is exceptional. I have a friend who drives from... More

We were craving for Thai food, so looked up on google, found this restaurant very closed to us, so we wanted to try, ordered spicy fried tofu rice, and our fav tom yum soup, it was very good, very tasty, pricy, but considering that is HAWAII, not to bad. Customer service was great. So if u visit Oahu, Hawaii, do... More

I haven't been a fan of Thai food in Hawaii and this is why I gave it a five star. It is pretty difficult to beat Thai food in Thailand when you compare cost in the equation, but one of the better Thai meals I've had. It's pretty close to the theaters if you are near Kapolei and the shopping... More

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 spice. I recommend this venue for... 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,...
