They serve some of the best Thai food on the island. Great aosphere in this family run establishment. Well worth a visit. Bring your own beer or wine.

Sitting at the table next to a busy street in Pahoa, one gets the feeling they are in Central America... maybe Belize - this is some of the coolest "old school" Hawaiian ambiance I've found on the Big Island. It is a little gritty; and...More

Ning's is a very small place, sort of cafe size, very informal and the opposite of corporate. Mostly people don't even book. I'd be surprised if they run to gift certificates. But you could contact the owner directly to see... More
