Was part of a group of 10 people and we were there at 4pm, when it opens for dinner. There was another, larger, group coming in early and they were seated on the other side of the central receiving area. Bottles of cold water were brought out while we were looking over the menu. Several appetizers were chosen to be... More

We ate here on our last day on Maui. We were tired of fish and wanted something different. My husband and I both had a curry dish (he had the short ribs one and I had "chee" something -- can't remember, with chicken). The meal was absolutely delicious and hit the spot. I really love curry, and this one was... More

This place has the best Panang curry short ribs. Made with macnuts. The veggie summer rolls are awesome but ask for peanut sauce. Also love the crispy fish with papaya salad.

This Thai restaurant offers very fresh food with fabulous service although not spicy unless you ask for Thai spice. The portions are adequate and are priced about average for Maui prices.

We stopped in for happy hour and a few appetizers. All appetizers (pupus) chosen were delicious and service was excellent (Adeline was our server). Happy hour is every day from 4-6 but not all drinks are cheaper. It depends on the day. During happy hour, you get 2 pupus for $14 (regular $9-10 each). The restaurant is a bit hard... More

Authentic Thai food in Khei. Made reservations with Open Table, no problems. Arrived about 6 PM and still had special deals with appetizers. Tasty curry dish. Smaller portions and prices while not cheap reasonable for Maui standards. Good service. Had to pay for the rice separately.

Thai food in Kihei, Maui? This restaurant, while not a hole in the wall, is at the very back of a strip mall, farthest from South Kihei street and Kamaole Beach 1. A guy staggers out of the restaurant, with one too many to drink, and we ask him what he likes best -anything with drunken noodles he says! It's... More

Delicious, hot, served beautifully, ...we had phad thai with prawns chicken fried rice, mixed veggies with tofu and shitake mushrooms. Also the papaya salad and spring rolls. Everything was tasty and enjoyable. Our server was a friendly young man who made sure we were happy. We sat in their new expanded bar area and it was great. Thanks!

The slight twist they put on a few dishes to add a Hawaiian flavour to the menu made the food outstanding. We enjoyed a pineapple shrimp curry along with an eggplant dish that melted in your mouth. The chef and owner are Thai which helps maintain a great standard. Make reservations as it is a hidden gem at great prices.
