We arrive to the Waikoloa area and this was our first meal here. Good thai food and spices. Service a bit slow but not prohibitive.

This is one of the better places at Queens market place. Food was very very nice and the prices are far less than we'd expected, considering the prices elsewhere. Menu was very good, and server was very attentive. Certainly recommend this!

We ran across this place quite by accident. It was just a few miles from our hotel. Pad Thai was very good.

We went here on our last night in Kona. I wish we'd found this little gem earlier in our visit to the big island because I would have loved to have eaten more than one meal here! The pad Thai was very good as were or appetizers and my husband's dish. Very close to our hotel at the Hilton Waikoloa... More

As the dishes came out we kept saying "this looks JUST like the pictures on the website!" Nice presentations with clever pineapple shaped mound of pineapple fried rice complete with the top of the pineapple shape. Summer rolls were yummy and very minty. Had pad thai with tofu and that was very good too. Our server was very nice and... More

We were very happy with our meal here. Very close to our hotel, delicious food and great service! Not too pricey when compared to other restaurants in the area.

Worth the wait. Busy most nights so arrive before your stomach starts growling. Great veggie options and the Tom Kha was so flavorful! Oh my goodness, so tasty! A delicate touch of rich saffron in coconut milk broth...yum. Pineapple rice & red curry all wonderful! Their iced tea is also good. Don't follow the three star review on yelp, this... More

Small restaurant with very pleasant service. The food tasted so fresh and homemade. The Tom Yum Goong soup was lovely and the green curry was fragrant and just the right amount of heat. We're in town for a week. We will be back.

I am a foodie but do have some religious restrictions. My husband and I both eat only vegetarian food (no meat, shrimp, fish) and also, no onion and no garlic. We went to this resaurant and just took a try at asking if they can make anything to our dietary needs and even without questioning the chef, the lady confidently... More

Ate here on a Saturday night with a two-family party of 8. We had looked at the menu of a pizza place in a nearby hotel and each pizza was around $34!! At Charley's the whole group are for the same price as four would have eaten at another restaurant. We had Pad Thai, red curry with beef, green curry... More
