We had a reservation and were seated quickly. We shared the Summer Roll (shrimp). I ordered the calamari. She had the papaya salad. Then we shared the Fantasea entree (more than enough for the two of us -- we're older). Everything was very good. This...was our first time here and we will go back. The dining area is not fancy but we went for the food.More

Awesome food. Busy and I can see why. Food was fantastic. Portions are huge. We ordered a bunch of dinners and just shared everything. Not a bad one in the bunch! Will definitely go back.

Tried several Thai Restaurants while we were in Wailea/Kihei area and this was our favorite. Yummy chicken coconut soup (Tom Kha Gai) and wide noodles with scrambled eggs and broccoli (Pad See Yu). Staff very friendly and courteous.

I ordered take out and was impressed at how efficient the staff worked to manage take orders and (socially distanced ) indoor diners. Oh, and the curry was delicious! Very fresh veggies, the perfect amount of spice and really great sticky rice. If you are...in Kihei don’t miss this place!More

Delicious food! We had the massamun curry and the drunken fish - both excellent. Highly recommend! Clean dining room and courteous staff.

The Tom Kai soup is outstanding! The Panang and Masseman Curry both excellent. We have ordered takeout multiple times here and it is 5 star!

Despite the other reviews, average even bland taste at best. Let’s look past the mosquito (bug) in the drink, the calamari appetizer was good tasting. Then the noodle dishes were bland - not a good look on the plate either. The chicken satay was without...flavor. The red curry was spicy and good. So on the whole a mixed bag - likely ok for takeout only - not much to dine in at a strip mall. Disappointed- the Food truck down the road looked a better choice.More

We ordered takeout and it was fresh, hot and ready on the dot. The food portions were large, vegan friendly and very tasty! I had curry over brown rice and it was enough for 2 meals. It's tucked away in the back of a strip...mall, just follow the signs to some of the best, most authentic Thai we've had.More

We had a lovely dinner at Maui Thai Bistro. We don't like very spicy food and our server, Passawan, was very accommodating. She had great recommendations and brought condiments so we could add spice if we wanted. I enjoyed the shiitake mix stir fry and...my husband had a delicious Panang curry with short ribs.More

As everyone should know by now its super busy in Maui in July 2021 and restaurants are understaffed, overwhelmed. That being said we had a great experience. The food was amazing. The spices were spot on . We had largely vegetarian but some fish and...all great. Highly recommend the yellow curry. The Tom Yum is the best I have had recently The servers were effective, and attentive. We got in and food quickly. All in all wonderful experience-I am so glad we found this placeMore

I always ask for the spice to be mild, and ask the server to bring me spices on the side so I can adjust them to my pallet.
