After reading a few good reviews we decided to check out Opal Thai, the first time we came past it was sadly closed (Sunday) but came back a few days later and super glad we did.
We arrived just after 5 and the place was already full, had to wait about 30mins but it was worth the wait, after looking over the menu the owner came over to chat and ask us a few questions then made up our order based on the answers to his questions.
The food that came out was amazing, super tasty and delicious.
We were in Thailand only a few months before and I would have to say the food was as tasty as it was in Thailand! I would highly recommend taking the drive to eat here.

Opal Thai was recommended by a local, & we were told that everything is fresh. The owner greeted us warmly, made suggestions after asking us about our favorite ingredients, & continued to check in w/ us - quite a personality! His years of experience in the Bangkok restaurant industry are exemplified by his creativity & charisma. Our dishes were fresh & tasty. Don't miss this treat while on the North Shore of Oahu!

Overall, very good Thai food. It's a small place, so there may be a wait for a table, but the meal was satisfying. Yes, the owner is quite a character. He pretty much set the menu for our party of 6, even though we had already picked menu items to order. It turned out that the amount of food was just right. To be honest, I'm not keen on someone else choosing menu items, especially with kids who are picky eaters. But in the end, no harm, no foul.

Every time I'm on Oahu I eat at Opals. No exaggeration, it is the best Thai food I've ever had. It is worth the drive no matter where you are staying!

What a wonderful visit to Opals. Myself and 10 others went to the restaurant and loved the food, the atmosphere and the great service. A trip to the North Shore would not be the same without a visit to Opals.
