If this is your first time to try Thai food, i suggest you order your food with out heat (spice). This way you will get the full flavor of their food. If you like the way the food taste, you can always add heat later. They offer a blend of both Thai and Lao selections. For starters, get the spring... More

Our party of 4 tried this restaurant on a whim, and liked it so much we came back the next week also. Consistency in delivery, cleanliness, and taste both times. Highly recommend. Prices as expected. Not too expensive. Large portions resulted in take-home boxes too. Small restaurant can't handle larger than groups of 8-10, but that was ok with us.

Ordered take out and took to hotel. Place looked and smelled very authentic. Ladies working were friendly. Food was very hot after driving and checking in. We ordered the drunkard noodles and the wild jungle curry. The curry was soooo good. Ordered it mild and still quite spicy. Same with the drunkard noodles. Totally fine though as I liked the...

Once again we visited Thai Lao this year. We did take out as 9 of us. The order was prepared in the time frame we were told, it was correct, and we all enjoyed. We even had left overs for another meal. Not expensive and a favorite of locals.

We spend 4 or 5 months each year on the island, and some friends turned us on to this place. We just love it. Good, fresh, flavorful food -- we have yet to find something on the menu that we would hesitate to recommend. Spring rolls are fresh and delicious; so's the calamari; stir frys are good, pad tai's too.... More

I book marked this restaurant on my TripAdvisor app to possibly eat at. I've had Thai many times but nothing as good as this! For appetizer we ordered the spring rolls which were to die for and for entree the Pad Thai again to die for as well as the pineapple fried rice. The restaurant itself is very small and... More

Such good thai food. Had the larb (gai, chicken) as an appetizer and it was soooo flavorful. The pad thai was very good, and the basil stir fry (#43) was "to die for." Super thai iced tea, usually don't like normal southern US sweet tea but this thai treatment with the cream (?) was amazing. A very complete menu, we'll... More

We were staying at Marriott Ko Olina and looking for reasonably piced Thai food. We certainly found it here. Everything was terrific, from the food to the service. Especially good were the spring rolls and the Evil Jungle curry. Spicy, but not overpowering. Overall excellent meal at reasonable price.

We stumbled upon the Thai Lao Restaurant on August 28th. I and my husband love Thai food so we try some new restaurants wherever we go "to compare". The restaurant was busy as we arrived around 7PM. There was a big group of Japanese on one side. We were immediately seated. We ordered Thai teas which were okay. We had... More
