“Good food, ok service”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Not big on Thai, but limited options in area and recommendation led us here. Staff could be more attentive considering number of tourists. BYOB, saw others and staff opened wine. Food good, price avetage for area.

“Good food, pleasant surroundings, friendly service”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

On the main street of Pahoa, HI on the big island is a Thai restaurant with authentic cuisine and colorful fun decor. We have been there a few times and it's always a great experience. Love that peanut sauce!

“yummy from appetizer through to dessert”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

This is a "special occasion" place for our family and one to which we take guests visiting from off island. Tablecloths topped with glass, friendly service, bountiful menu. Hot pearl tapioca with purple sweet potatoes is a favorite dessert here. Parking can be difficult.

“Good food...service could be better”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

The food is great – some of the best Thai I had ever had. The only problem my wife and I experienced was being served. When we walked in, no one greeted or seated us, even though our eventual waiter passed us a couple of times. We finally decided it must be a “seat yourself” place and found a table for two (the restaurant was ~3/4 full at the time). After waiting another 5 minutes and almost getting up to leave, someone simply dropped-off two menus and left before we could order drinks. Normally, we would have walked-out, but it was a little after 8 pm, we were really hungry for some good Thai food, and the ratings for this place were good. We decided to stick it out and were glad we did. The waiter we finally got was very attentive and helpful and the food was outstanding. Be warned: when they say that “medium” is what most people call “hot” they are not kidding!
