We stopped by for lunch. The place was pretty quiet when we arrived, but quickly filled up with tourists and locals. Food arrived quickly and was pretty tasty. Servers were friendly, although they seemed a but overwhelmed once the restaurant got busy.

The food was great! We had someone in our party who had extremely limiting diet restrictions due to Acid Reflux, and the staff here were fantastically accommodating. Thanks for a great night with wonderful service, and delicious, authentic and quick food.

We were pleasantly surprised with the fresh and healthy flavors of this Thai restaurant. Their service was fast and served with pleasantries and prices still leave you with enough money to head to downtown Kailua-kona for a dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed their basil roll and red veggie curry. We recommend the outdoor seating overlooking the bay...just kidding their located in... More

We were staying at nearby Kona Coast Resort & happened upon this restaurant in a plaza across the street. We arrived around 8:20pm and were the only ones in there. Although the hours posted on the door state the restaurant is open until 9:30pm, it was obvious our male server was hoping to get out early that night so there... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children had a fabulous restaurant - we weren't sure at first because it was quite empty but the food was delicious and the service excellent. The menu was very diverse and there were plenty of choices for our picky children! Would highly recommend this restaurant.

I grew up in Long Beach, CA where the Thai population is one of the largest outside of Thailand and good restaurants for the downtown area. I have had Thai food in several countries (except Thailand) and as a way to gauge the freshness and quality, I usually order the same items at first. The quality of food on my... More

This restaurant was just ok for a Thai place. We had Pad Thai and red curry, both were just okay, not as good as we had hoped. The food also had a slightly oily burnt taste. Service was good and the food came quite quickly.
