We visit Sukhothai every time we are on Kauai. This visit was with a large group having a late night dinner. The restaurant is family-run. Mama Ping cooks while her children serve and do everything else. Service was very friendly and speedy. The menu items are typical Thai with a small twist. Everything we've eaten here has been very good.... More

Being Cinco de Mayo we went looking for some good Mexican food. When we arrived it was packed with long waiting line. But right next door was this empty Asian restaurant. So we took a chance and were pleasantly surprised. The food, while not Mexican, was really flavourful. I had the sweet fish, which was very tasty. My wife had... More

This restaurant can easily be overlooked due to its location. We arrived at 5:45pm and were the only ones there. The service was quick and efficient. The food was good and the portions were decent. The place started to get more customers as our dinner progressed. They have a wide variety of cuisines, not just Thai food. If you like... More

In the shopping center by Big Save. Drop in and enjoy the same foods that the locals love here. Hot spicy chicken pho is highly recommended. Let the waitress know how spicy you like your food. Extremely friendly staff and a bargain.

When it comes to restaurants, Kauai is not Paris, San Francisco, New York, Hong Kong, etc. In fact, when we are "on island" we usually eat at home. But sometimes, we crave something that we cannot easily cook, or we would like to invite friends over for dinner but don't feel up to all the work involved. This is where... More

We totally agree with reviewer Krystal W that the external appearance of the restaurant is off-putting. The photos plastered all over the door and windows don't do the establishment any favors. We know Thai, and suspect that other potential customers do, too, so suggest cleaning up the front to make it attractive and inviting (somehow, the photos seem to make... More

Found this place while wandering. It's not a fancy spot, but everything was great. Appetizers came quickly, and so did the food. Friendly, helpful staff. Food was great. Ordered less than we thought we would after seeing sizes of the appetizers. Prices were excellent. Brown rice option is great! Flavorful, delicious. Warrants a return trip. Had the Veg Pad Thai,...

To be honest, I was nervous about the food by looking at the outside of the restaurant but it was actually very tasty. We got thai yellow chicken curry and the coconut shrimp dish, both were amazing and did not disappoint.

The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired, but the food was pretty good. Not too expensive, and quite authentic. Not a bad option, especially if you're vegan.
