Remains as good as it was before

My husband and I, along with friends living in the area, ate here a few years ago. We thought it was very good then, and we do again. Everything is cooked to order and arrives at the table fresh and hot. You get to pick your level of spiceyness and whether you want chicken, pork, shrimp or tofu... read more

Very nice Thai place with great healthy food and lovely service. The atmosphere and decoration of the space is also a hit, and makes it great for romantic dinners, as well as festive occasions with friends. Not to exclude the any-random-day kind of eating out - this place is just great on so many fronts. Many different choices on the... More

Thai restaurants are plentiful in Kona, so it's hard to choose. Our party of 4 did take-out from Krua Thai our last night in Kona. It was delicious. We had the Pad Thai with chicken, the Thai Ginger with chicken, the Jumbo Shrimp, and the Panang Curry with beef. We also got the Fresh Basil Rolls and the Crispy Thai... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a merchant on Ali'i Drive; he claimed that it was the best Thai in Kailua Kona. The restaurant is clean and has Thai decor. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted by the friendly staff. We ordered a beef curry dish and the waitress recommended the house special for the day which was a... More

The food was very flavorful and nicely presented. We tried both dishes at the Thai hot level, on their scale a 7 out of 10 for heat. We were not sure what to expect as several other reviews said 4 out of 10 was too hot but then heat us subjective. Next time we'll bump the meal up a couple... More

My wife and I tried this restaurant for the first time last week. Its a pity we had not found it before now. We love Thai food and have eaten it all over the world so feel we are authorities! All dishes we ordered were good and the service was absolutely fine. The location is off the main tourist area... More
