“Great food -- Disorganized Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed our visit to Thai Thai for dinner. Great food. Nice flavors. We asked for mike and got just that. Lots of options on the menu. Expensive - Prices for dinner $13-$25. Service seemed disorganized. We had as many as five different people helping us and ignoring us all during the same meal. The staff were friendly enough and we were seated quickly, drinks delivered and order taken promptly. But then servers disappeared and we had to wait almost as long for the check as it took to eat.

“Curry time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

My family, 4 adults and two teen boys descended upon the Thai Thai restaurant after a day of volcano hiking with a big appetite. The food was great if a little pricey, but then everything near the volcano is expensive. The service was very good and the yellow curry was bombdiddlyumptious (my nieces review). We went last year and came back for seconds this year so worthy of a try.

“Some of the best Thai Food in the US”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

We ate here 3 times during our one month stay on the Big Island. The Special Thai Thai curry was so delicious we couldn't hardly break away from it to try something else. We brought 4 friends with us for dinner one night and they loved the food too. A bit pricey but worth it! We tried the spring rolls and they were also very good. the Tom Yum soup was good but I've had better.

“Decent Thai food before you look at the glowing lava”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

The night we went, tired from traveling, the food was a refreshing surprise. I love Thai food, live in SF Bay area and this was better than most of the Thai restaurants there. This is a surprisingly large space and probably understaffed - it was very busy and there was a very large party who sat down shortly after us, basically the service was erratic, they were genuinely trying but they seemed a little disorganized. Maybe we should have eaten after going to watch the volcano rather than before, it might have been less busy.

“Excellent Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Surprisingly tasty Thai food. Friendly and attentive staff. In contrast to som other reviewers I found excellent Thai food, appropriately spiced (asked for medium and got medium). Originally coming from California, I am used to Thai food, and this was far better than you will get most places.
