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

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 another... 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.

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
