There is very little in terms of food choices along the way to Road to Hana. This was the icing on the cake as we got to Hana and were starved. It is interesting that there are all these thai food dives (almost like a food truck) that serves some awesome thai food at very reasonable prices (given that this... More

We stopped in today and we were delighted with the excellent fast friendly service and authentic Thai food. There is a great variety of food and drink and lots of vegetarian options. The chef even came out to ask is how our food was. Lots of parking and tables to sit and enjoy the fantastic creations. If you can't find... More

This is a hidden gem! Made the long drive to Hana worth it. Great food. Quick. Made to order. Green curry and pad Thai wore top notch. Definitely will come back to Hana for this!

We got food from Pranee at lunch time and saved it in our fridge at the hotel to eat for dinner later. Smart move, since dinner options are limited in Hana (and Pranee is only open for lunch). Really good ahi cooked w/ panang curry (a special), nice pad thai (generous serving) and delightful crispy fried fish w/ a green... More

This is the best food in Maui.. You have to drive to Hana for it but it's well worth the drive. The entire menu is delicious but you can't go wrong with the salad.. It's delicious.

This place has been around for many years. Then it was closed. Now it moved next door. They upgraded to a food truck. I loved my coconut/chicken/curry soup. Very delicious, full of flavor, lots of chicken, big serving. My husband ordered chicken curry. Delicious flavor but only a few lonely pieces of chicken. Lots and lots of rice. It made... More

It took us a while to find this place, though we drove by it a few times. We were looking for a "side of the road" food truck; and it is sort of... Set back off the road, this looks more like a food shack, but let's not quibble, the food was fantastic. Friendly service, definitely not high class, but... More

I've been to Thailand and eaten some really good Thai food. This food truck offers some of the best Thai food that I've ever had. Fresh and extremely good flavors. The coco crusted Mahi did not even taste like fish it was so fresh and delicious. Pad Thai was excellent. Chicken stir fry excellent. Amazing stuff. Best food truck experience... More

This simple place offers delicious Thai food. The prior reviews are well deserved. We had a hard time finding it due to the name. On some days, it goes by "Thai Food by Suri" depending on who is cooking that day.

We over ordered for 2 not realizing the generous portion size. Freshly prepared with just the right amount of spice. Some vegetarian options too...pretty large menu! Friendly. Communal seating picnic tables and not that many. Prepare to wait at noon...usually a line forms. Great to take out to the beach too!
