Great Thai

Great Thai food at good prices. Place was very busy and we didn't have hopes of getting a table as a walk-in, but hostess immediately rearranged tables so she could seat us. Great staff, authentic food. Couldn't be happier.

This small restaurant has limited seating but an enormous menu. I had the most delicious tofu Pad Thai I have ever eaten. My husband enjoyed the pineapple chicken and rice dish. The servings are enormous--big enough for two people to share. We also ordered the fresh spring rolls as an appetizer and they were also very good, made with a... More

OMG, the best Thai I've had on the island. The flavor is amazing. The portions are large and I love the woven bamboo huts the sticky rice comes in. This will be the best Thai you will have in the Eva beach ,kapolei area.

If you like authentic Asian food filled with flavor, then beeline it to Thai Lao. We were happy to find this place as on old maps it might be labeled as My Cafe. It is in the corner of the strip mall next to the Chevron station. And you can even BYO.

This is a small, family run restaurant located in a strip mall next to Papa Johns pizza. The food is very good , and if you order the dishes with Thai chilies be prepared for many very spicy meal. I ordered medium spicy, and the dish was hot!! This restaurant does not have a beer or wine license so you... More

Thai food is one of my favorite things ever, and I thought I had been to all the good restaurants on Oahu, but my girlfriend that lives out Makakilo side said this was one of her faves and of course I was game to try. We ordered a bunch of food for pick up and not only was the price... More

When we entered the restaurant we saw a small to mid sized restaurant, neatly put together, with white tablecloths on the tables. It has a nice feel. I read a few reviews on Trip Advisor and almost did not go. I often go to the worst reviews first. The worst reviews were not the best worst reviews - a few... More

Lots of fresh delicious food. The only bad thing is that I was stupid and ordered sweet and sour pork! Well, of course that is not a Thai or Lao recipe! But the curries are delicious and all the Thai courses were as I had remembered them from being in Thailand. Go. Enough for two meals. Order extra rice.
