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

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
