“Ok for the money”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Good value as a take-out dinner compared to the resorts' restaurants but not a stand-out menu. Just your generic Thai joint.

“Out of the way and worth it”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

Found this place due to a miserable attempt to get dinner next door at Solimene's in Waimea. (see separate review).

Along with several other restaurants located in a strip mall, this place was fabulous!!

Wonderful menu variety, quiet surroundings, perfect service and at the top of the list, the food was outstanding.

Very reasonable prices (dinner for two was $25 + tip). They don't serve beer or wine but you can bring your own (or grab at grocery store in the mall) and there's no corkage fee.

This IS worth the drive to Waimea if you are on the Big Island!!!

“Awful thai food!”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

First off, the address on Trip Advisor for this restaurant is not the location we ate from. We ordered take out from the Queens Marketplace in Waikoloa. We ordered pad thai, cashew chicken and yellow curry chicken. All were not good. Vegetables overcooked and limp, sauces not flavorful. Just awful. One of the two bad meals we had on the island. The other being Just Tacos in the Mauna Lani shops, awful Mexican food. Worse than Taco Bell quality. Steer clear of both!

“Decent Thai food”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

The cashew chicken was good. Pad Thai was okay but a bit bland. A bit pricey but overall a decent meal.

“Love this place”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Everytime I'm on the island I have to have a meal here. Their soups are great and their fried rice is spectacular. So is their panang. Service is out of this world.
