My family and I had dinner at Opal's. We have lived in LA and NYC, and so have been fortunate to enjoy great Thai cuisine before. Opal's (the proprietor) food compares very well to the best Thai restaurants in those cities. Opal and his son...More

Every time I visit Haleiwa it is a must to eat at Opal's. Warning: he doesn't let you order. He will just make you something. You never know what he will charge either. Also, there is always a wait. All that to say, it is...More
