Keo's is out of business, but their sister restaurant is still open & just as delicious. The sister location is called Keoni's. They are located at the corner of Kuhio Ave. & Kaiulani St. in Waikiki. They are on the ground level of the Ohana East Hotel.

My husband and I ate dinner here while we were on vacation in Honolulu. The server was wonderful and was able to tell us how things were prepared (my husband is allergic to onions so he pointed out some dishes that didn't contain any onions). The Pad Thai was one of the best meals that I had while we were... More

we tried it and tried it again, just in case we were all wrong the first time, but it was as horrible as the first time. Maybe we are spoiled, because we had the real thing in Thailand. It certainly was not authentic, and had to be reheated. I was supposed to have a fresh meal cooked, but it only... More

My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Keo's on February 27, 2014. We had no idea that the restaurant was closing down. We had Spicy Fried Rice, the Duck Breast Salad and Panjay Curry with shrimp. Delicious! It was the curry that really made the meal memorable. It was spicy but we like spicy. The shrimp was succulent... More

I've had some of the best thai food in Hawaii here at Keo's. Their classics like the Jungle Prince Chicken, Tom Yum Koong and the Green Papaya Salad were all fantastic dishes. It is sad that they will be closing their doors and hope that they reopen soon, wherever their new location may be...

While on vacation in Waikiki, my husband and I decided on Thai one night; we walked to Keo’s from the Ilika. The restaurant was packed and we had to wait about 40 minutes before being sat. The aromas of various foods wafted about and we looked forward to great Thaicuisine. Unfortunately, the Thai restaurants in Cambridge ON could definitely school... More

My husband and I ate there late one night. The restaurant was fairly crowded even at 9pm. It opened up to the street. It was nice to sit at the edge with the warm breeze. Dinner was good. We had the chicken pad tai and the pineapple shrimp curry special. Food was plentiful and the nice aroma of the spices... More

Great Thai food. Everything we ate was tasty and perfectly prepared. Good service and ambience. Try the Evil Jungle Prince! The spring rolls were presented with cucumber, mint and lettuce leaves that you wrapped the roll in, amazing flavors!

Except for the decor and our friendly waitress; this was hands down the most expensive and worst Thai food I have ever had. Green Papaya salad was improperly seasoned and had no flavor. This dish should be prepared with green beans,fresh tomato,Thai chilies,and peanuts- none of which this dish contained. I actually sent the dish back and all they did... More

Keo's is worth a visit for the flavour and atmosphere. Cost is reasonable. Keep an eye out for cleanliness of dishes and food quality. We had to send our sticky rice back because it was obviously pre-cooked and was more like cement rice. Couldn't even scoop it. Our server handled it okay - only tried to argue that it was... More
