We stopped by for dinner in this little thai restaurant and had to wait five minutes for a table, and it was worth it. We had the green curry chicken, pad kra pow pork, pad prik king shrimp and spring rolls. Food and service were exceptional. Took about 5 minutes for our meals to arrive in a full restaurant. Each...

We sought out some restaurants off-resort and this one consistently came up with good reviews. It's located in a little plaza just about 5min drive out of KoOlina resort area. We shared spring rolls which were fantastic. Hubby got the green curry and I had the pad thai with shrimp. Large portions. flexible on how spicy you would like it.... More

We went here for dinner on a Wednesday evening. We tried to call for a reservation but couldn't get through - twice busy and once no answer. So we decided to just swing by and see if there was a wait. There wasn't - about half empty so no problem getting a seat right away. It's in a retail center... More

Very busy place. Excellent food and taste. The curry was great. The summer rolls were great. The pad Thai was also great. The beef satay with coconut milk was great in my view but rest of table did not like the taste. My wife thought the medium level heat was too much but for me it was just right. Good... More

If you're a fan of authentic Thai or Laotian cuisine, this is the place for you! This cozy restaurant is nestled in a buzy strip mall and parking can be tricky. I would highly recommend making reservations if you have a party of 4 or more for dinner, especially on the weekends. The menu is extensive with many traditional offerings... More

Great Thai food at good prices. Place was very busy and we didn't have hopes of getting a table as a walk-in, but hostess immediately rearranged tables so she could seat us. Great staff, authentic food. Couldn't be happier.

This small restaurant has limited seating but an enormous menu. I had the most delicious tofu Pad Thai I have ever eaten. My husband enjoyed the pineapple chicken and rice dish. The servings are enormous--big enough for two people to share. We also ordered the fresh spring rolls as an appetizer and they were also very good, made with a... More
