We come to the Big Island often and we have eaten here 5 times. The food is the closest to the Thai food that we had when we were in Thailand. They make everything fresh to order...nothing sitting in steam tables! Our favorites are the grilled beef salad and the chicken with cashew nuts. I have to admit that their... More

Don't drive by and think it's not worthy, it certainly is. I continue to look forward to returning to Kona for many many reasons but this Thai food is one of those reasons! It does not look like much, however it is very clean. Their is enough English to make sure your order is perfect for your taste, both in... More

Great menu, great staff, and great location in Kona! Enjoy Thai while in the islands...we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Krua. You may have to wait but I believe they take reservations as several tables were reserved.

Krua Thai does not have a liquor license. But that only disturbs my wife since I don't drink. Aside from that Krua Thai has a "volcanic" duck recipe that was absolutely superb! Duck is tricky to prepare, and most of my experiences have ranged from pretty good to flatly awful., This was one of the finest, if not the best... More

Love love love the yellow curry with chicken, and my wife always gets tom yum soup. Prices are around $10 a plate, and they no longer serve beer, or wine, but they allow you to BYOB;)

My husband and I were on vacation in Kona, Hawaii last week and were wanting Thai food. We googled it and found this restaurant. We very pleased with the restaurant and the food!

We drove past this restaurant many times on Kuakini HWY before finally stopping to try it. So glad we did as it has become one of our favorite Thai restaurants on the island. The food is consistently fresh and the lunch specials are a great deal and come with a side salad. Most recently we ordered the Queen of Siam... More

Not sure if this is authentic Thai food (been there and so-on), but it's very good, Portions are of fair size and create very good value. This restaurant is neat, clean and orderly. The staff is always very pleasant and quite accommodating. Very consistent quality and value.

Located a block off the beachfront this place is worth finding. The menu is wide and varied with a lunch menu that is very well priced. My favorite entree is "Volcanic Duck" but don't be put off by the name, it isn't that spicy. We live in Kona and this is one of our "go to" restaurants. We prefer it... More
