Food worth Thai-ing over?

The food was really good here, the only complaint was the lack of consistency and the fact that the waiter forgot one of our items. The papaya salad was great, well the first one we ordered was, it was so good we ordered a second, the second one was not nearly as good, its as if it was from... read more

Maybe I am very picky in terms of Thai food having been in Thailand several times and having my preferred Thai restaurant around the world so I give an average 3 star to this restaurant Nothing bad but nothing really to die for... Tried Tom Yum, Pad Thai, pineapple fried rice, fried egg roll, beef curry Very nice staff

I've always had a good experience at To Thai For: fresh ingredients, friendly service, a variety of spice levels. The portions are quite large: if you're getting a salad and two main dishes between two people, don't order an appetizer, too (and you won't have room for dessert). I haven't found a dish that is "WOW", but what's here is... More

The Tom Kha soup was terrible, and I would have gone back to return it but I was already back at my hotel. The soup tasted like dishwater and feet, and while I had another item that was tasty, the Fried Tofu, with excellent sauces, this soup should not have been served. Others have reviewed their curry's and rice dishes... More

My wife and I ate here while my daughter and friends were at youth group. We've been looking for a good Thai place to frequent since moving to the islands. While this was good, I don't think we've found our go to place yet. Food was good and the place is a hole in the wall but wasn't outstanding. Don't... More

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... 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.
