We asked local hotel employees where they like to eat and take their families to. We asked for local non chain establishments. Several employees recommended the Thai Lao. That being said, my partner is not a fan of Asian Cuisine. We decided to try it anyway because of the local recommendation and reviews. We were NOT disappointed. The food was... More

Had a very good meal with my family. The soup rice and curry dishes were large portions and very good. The service was great. The tables were very close together. Good solid spot for Thai food. Would return.

I went here for lunch ordered the Thai Vegetables with chicken medium hot with rice. It was absolutely delicious cooked perfectly. The service was fast and friendly I would definitely recommend this place for some great Thai food.

We came for dinner last night and had a fantastic meal. Started with the satay chicken and summer rolls. Both were very good and the summer rolls particularly fresh. For mains, we split pad Thai, pineapple fried rice with pork, drunken noodles with beef and a sweet and sour chicken. All were excellent but my favorite was the drunken noodles... More

Ate an early dinner there tonight. Great menu and food was delicious. The Spring Rolls included lettuce wraps, mint and rice noodles and peanut sauce. Lot of fun and very delicious.

Thai Lao has a great selection of wonderful Thai and Lao food. As a vegan, it can be difficult to eat out, but Thai Lao makes it easy! They have many many vegan options (of course, plenty non vegan too) that are fresh and delicious. Also, the staff are very friendly, accommodating and always smiling! We order take-out from here...

It used to be a popular Thai restaurant, for luch and dinner, and I have eaten there multiple times and often have to wait for a table. They have a good selection of Thai dishes on their menu, including Pad Thai noodle, and even Mango with Sticky Rice. Then in 2015 they opened up another Thai Lao elsewhere, and their... More

Very unassuming location in a strip mall but amazing food. The food price was moderate but the taste and quality were terrific. Much of the food in Hawaii is expensive and not worth the price (in my experience). This is a great restaurant.

They started out really slow, took over 5 minutes before the server came and helped us. But they made it up quick. Everybody's food came out super quick and was delicious. There were no complaints from any one. Don't get the pork skins they sell, bland. I had the fried basil chicken and it had the right amount of heat. They serve a lot... More

I had the meatball pho and it was superb. The ONLY downfall was there was only one waitress. She did do a good job with our group along with at least 4 other tables in the restuarant.
