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

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.
