“Fine Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

I do not understand some if the reviews of Keo's that I have read. Keo's is a top notch restaurant serving favorable Thai food in an attractive, well cared for space filled with flowers, antiques and memorabilia. Service was more than adequate and the price was right considering it is Honolulu. Add a plus for a quiet place, an unusual find in Waikiki.

“You Will Get Plenty To Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Leo's has a wonderful atmosphere, great service and delicious food! I tried the grilled chicken and my husband tried the Cashew Chicken. Both were delicious and large portions. Don't for get to order some rice or noodles on the side. The entrees do not include either.

“Delicious food - a nice find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

I had been recomended this by friends and they were right.
Four of us shared meals including Evil Jungle Prince, Pad Thai, Tofu basil chicken and a special red curry. The flavours were DELICIOUS and not too sweet as US restaurants can sometimes be.
They brought us sticky rice first in error (too claggy for me) but soon changed it for the steamed rice that we ordered.
The menu is extensive and the staff service was fine.
Resident tourists might find it a little expensive compared to lower quality Thai venues but the flavours were worth that little extra for me. (Check the menu online).
After all if Erika Badu, Stevie Wonder, Rob Lowe, Tony Curtis and Harrison Ford have all eaten here that’s good enough for me!
Perhaps we are spoilt by eating in high-quality cheaper Thai restaurants regularly in Australia so this could have been slightly cheaper when you include wine - but overall we were pretty impressed.

“Best Thai Restaurant In Honolulu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

I've been coming to Keo's since 1985, long before it was moved to Waikiki. Absolutely the finest, freshest thai food anywhere. The Evil Jungle Prince dish is amazing! Fresh bouquets of orchids adorn the tables~photos of famous movie stars and dignitaries hang on the walls. Keo's is "No Ka Oi" as they say in Hawaiian--simply, "The Best".
