Good food, weird service

When I walked in I was immediately asked if I had the to go order, when I said no, the guy had this look like he was confused? Like it was super strange to dine alone. Made me feel awkward. I asked for a straw and was told they were out? I feel like thats a pretty basic staple, that... read more

First time here and I'm really impressed with the quality and taste of the food. This is the second best tasting Thai curries we've had on Oahu with Rajanee Thai in Mililani still the top on island. We had the Massaman and Panang curries and they "broke da mouth" with their hot and creamy goodness!

Decided to try Thai food upon arriving in Honolulu after 5hr flight --located this small family owned restaurant on YELP.. Female server was extremely friendly and helped us pick out exactly what we wanted... Deep fried sea bass with Thai rice plus a soup with many delicious, unique vegetables. Service was attentive and restaurant was nearly full when we were... More

Really impressed with their food, but the wall colour felt a little depressing and affected the overall experience. With a new color palette, and perhaps even some Thai music, it could really go a long way! Food was fabulous though.

Stopped in earlier this week based on various internet reviews and wasn't disappointed. Tried their kabocha pumpkin curry and it was amazing. It's a seasonal curry, so I would definitely recommend trying it if they have it while you are there. Very friendly, courteous staff. Will be going again to try other offerings. Aloha!

The restaurant is a little small place. Parking in a lot at the back and you walk inside the restaurant from the back entrance. The food was just great. Prices were reasonable. Quite a nice selection. The seafood was fresh and tasty. Have a full bar. If you want Thai food in Honolulu, recommend you give this place a try.... More

I have been to this place 4 to 5 times now with 2 or more people. Good points: 1) Reservations can be made 2) Right number of menu items 3) So far, have not been disappointed with any food item. My wife loves their pad thai (mild). I like it medium spicy. I remember their pork chops being really good.... More

There don't appear to be that many Thai restaurants in the Honolulu area, but To Thai For was an excellent find. It is 10-15 minutes from Waikiki, but worth the few extra minutes of travel, as the food is authentic, the prices reasonable, and service was solid. Was a bit worried when our waiter didn't appear to speak Thai, but... More

Yay, we found good Thai food! I love Thai food, and I hate when you move to a new place and it means getting disappointed a few times until you find a decent restaurant. After a couple of said disappointments, we found To Thai For relatively close to where we live, and it is now our go-to spot for Thai.... More

This restaurant is a bit out of town. We had a rental car which enabled us to go out there. It was ok. Large serves and there were many local people eating there. The ingredients they used were fresh. We preferred Keoni by Keo over this restaurant, and Keoni by Keo is also more centrally located.
