Over the 3 years we have lived in Puna, Ning's is our favorite restaurant. And this tiny town has a well-deserved reputation for the quality dining choices. Over and over we find Ning's food to be deeply, richly flavorful. The interior is nicely laid out...More

Very tasty & authentic Thai food - I always judge Thai by the green curry, this did not disappoint! The spice levels are high, we eat reasonably spicy food often and the medium was just right - but the waiter was helpful in making sure...More

Great Thai food here--but be thoughtful in ordering the amount of warmth you prefer. Mild comes to the table as the medium/medium-hot you would order at another Thai restaurant. We like mild and were told to get mild order 'extra mild'!

We went 4 times and got good food and service each time. Nice tables,you can take your own wine. Had tofu curries and satay dishes. Spicing is bang on;i.e. 'hot' is indeed 'hot'! Each time the dishes tasted slightly different & might have different vegetables...More

The flavors are still there, but the quality of the overall meal has deteriorated to the point I doubt I will return there. I live locally and have been dining at Ning's for at least 11 years. There has been a slow and steady decline...More

You wouldn't expect to find good Thai food in a little town in Hawaii but Ning's is surprisingly good. The summer rolls were really good. Charming and efficient service and freshly cooked and flavourful dishes. We plan to eat there again.

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
