“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

The food here was delicious there isn't a large variety around the area so a Thai restaurant was a welcome change. The staff was helpful.

“Under New Management!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We read the reviews, but decided to give the place a chance. It turns out that they're under new management and though the staff are still learning, the service was great!! The food was too. The atmosphere is more like a funky bistro than the classic Thai decor you may be used to.

“under new management, great improvement in food and decor.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

This restaurant has just re-opened under new ownership and management. What a refreshing change. The food has to be the best Thai food that you will find. All the dishes have delicious , clean, clear, balanced flavors and are beautifully and simply presented. Every dish tastes different from the others on the table. Make sure you all order different dishes and share the variety. We also tried the in house made ice creams. Black sesame as well as coconut. Delicious flavors leaving us with a clean palate. We will definitely be back.

“Worst Thai experience yet... But the mango sticky rice was good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We were recommended this place by a waitress working at a restaurant we liked. We figured it would be good. So we were surprised that nothing not even the tea tasted right, in fact it was so bad we threw the leftovers out when we got home and we've never done that. The service was so so but not as friendly as we would have liked. The only reason I'm giving it 2 out of 5 stars is that the mango sticky rice was surprisingly good. Long story short unless you are in the mood for desert only and that desert is mango sticky rice I'd avoid this place. It's too bad as we love Thai and it's the only one in that area.

“Save yourself and pocket book”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Don't bother if you are looking for good Thai you won't find it here. A bit on the pricey side for the quality of food they serve. We love thai food in our house and have found great places to eat but none on the Island of Maui to date. Service was not bad made up a little for the food, but I am looking for good food and good service not one of the other.
