The wait staff can guide you re how hot you may want you dishes. Their range is 1 to 5 with 2 being hot enough for us. All dishes were well presented and delicious for any Thai lover!

This restaurant is in a small shopping center. The decor is lovely. We had a delightful meal with very fresh ingredients. This seemed to be a family owned restaurant. The wait staff were friendly. The service seemed a bit slow but maybe they fix everything fresh.

We had takeout from this restaurant. The food was very good. If we were staying longer we would go back again to try some of their speciality dinners.

Love their food. Their Pineapple rice served in a pineapple is a must. So are the basil rolls as an appetizer. We also always order a curry dish. They are all excellent. Last time I was there I forgot my credit card. They were closed the next day so I went back day after and they had it for me.... More

They serve a fried rice dish in a hollowed pineapple half. It is yummy. Many of the regulars were having it so my wife tried it. She enjoyed it as well. Not overly seasoned so most folks will enjoy their food. In a shopping strip mall, no ocean view. Wlking distance to many condos south of Kona proper.

We have eaten here several times and enjoy the food and atmosphere. The pineapple rice is my favorite. Usually we share so we get to enjoy other entries.

We enjoyed a Thai meal right after our arrival. We had a 10% off coupon from our resort. The meal was yummy and the service good. Located in the Keauhou shopping center real close to our resort.

The service was some of the best I have had on the island. We came in late (8:30pm) when other restaurants had stopped taking walk-ins. They were eager for our business, didn't rush us, and had great food. Their fried rice was the best!
