Excellent Thai food that is reasonably priced. Their vegetable spring rolls are very tasty. Their massaman curry dish is absolutely delicious.

I really like this restaurant. It has great service for one, and has good parking. Always well greeted, you can bring your own drinks if you wanna. We love the Thai food here, and come here alot with our Veggie friends. Nice place. Clean, well staffed, great food, and fun dessert.

Krua Thai is O.K., but there is better to be found on the Island, in Kona even. The food is good/average, as is the service. We did have enough time to wonder if we should find somewhere else to eat before the server came to take our order. Just in time, our server arrived. We will look elsewhere in the... More

The food was a little disappointing after the reviews we had read. Some items seemed to have been pre-made, not absolutely fresh.

I've been 3 or 4 times now. I've only had the lunch deal. And a deal it is! Cheap and at that price it's good! Might not think its that great at higher prices. Nice staff. Quick service.

Tom ka soup was pretty good. Tom yum noodle lacked flavor. Service was very slow, 15 minutes to take order, 30 minutes to prepare. Pretty sure I won't be going back.

We've visited the Big Island several times and it always amazes me how good the Thai food is in Kona. We have pretty good Thai in NYC, but subjectively speaking, I have to say that Krua Thai beats all the Thai places we have in NYC. We ate here twice on our last trip, and food was equally delicious both... More

A typical american Thai restaurant. We got used to California Thai restaurants and in comparison, this one was OK but not great. We had a Tom Ka soup which was the best dish we had, but not the best of its kind. Red and green curries were good and standard. Two dishes were disappointing: a "special" volcanic duck, and a...

We had dinner at Krua Thai last night expecting a good meal of Thai flavours. It was overall a bit disappointing. I don't know what has caused this as the last time we visited last year, the meal was fine. This time the chicken wings were dry and overcooked and the green curry was watery and not so tasty. Unfortunately... More

Food: Everything we ordered was great. We started with the Yam-Tenpura appetizer, which was tasty. The Phad See Eu was one of the best I've had, and my family also enjoyed the Phad Woon Sen and the Phad Kee Mao. We got the lunch special, so our dishes also came with a small salad. The salad was served with a... More
