We were tired of the touristy restaurants along the beach front so we ran across this little gem and we loved it! Good service along with super yummy green curry with tofu, spicy shrimp fried rice, crispy spring rolls and delicious fried bananas with ice cream for dessert will make us happily return when we come back to Kona! Highly... More

I was so utterly disappointed that the pad Thai was so bland and served without lime, peanuts, carrots or anything else. Just noodles and chicken. It had absolutely no taste in comparison to the countless other pad Thai dishes I have eaten. So after three bites of my take out I threw it in the trash and ate some thing... More

I ordered green curry dish and the eggplant in the dish was not edible. My wife had the pad Thai and she was not able to eat her food as it was too smokey. Worst Thai food ever.

The food is here is very tasty. They do a great job, The service could use a bit of polish but they are so nice, it is ok. It is bit loud, so not the best place if you want a quiet dinner out. Go for the food!

The restaurant is a about a 1/4 block off the highway. There are plenty of parking spaces allocated to the restaurant. The menu is extensive. The dishes were okay some were better than others. The service was very good. This is a large restaurant.

If you're looking for great service and great Thai...Krua is the place to go. I always get the pad Thai and I am rarely ever able to finish it all, meaning the portions are pretty big. Every time I go, even during the busy lunch rush, I am seated within seconds. The only thing missing is the ocean views.

When you are in Kona, make sure to visit this authentic place. The food is fabulous. The employees are kind and knowledgeable. The service is very good. This was a win /win all the way around. Head straight for the curry. I can hardly wait to go back.

Lunch for three on July 2nd. The red curry with chicken was to die for, really. If not for the white rice I might not have survived. The spicy scale offering was a 1 to 10 choice...I thought I had tried 5 on a previous visit, but I was warned with a "are you sure?" By the kind waitress. Anyway,... More
