“Fragrant and Fantastic Flavours”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

My family of three ate here to discover new and exciting flavours. My 13 year-old son had a satay chicken burger and said it was the best meal of our vacation. My husband ate two entrees and enjoyed them both, one of them being the chicken pad thai. I ordered the daily special - pumpkin curry with ono. Although the fish was overdone, the flavour of the curry could not be topped. It was filled with kabocha squash and served with fantastic sticky rice. Oh, did I mention the green papaya salad? Delicious. I ate the whole thing myself!

“One of the best for the money”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Our B&B recommended this hidden gem. It is a casual setting with no beer or wine but the food is quite good and the prices are right. With all the overpriced places in town, we were happy to find this good Thai food. You really can't go wrong here.

“Consistently good!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Spur of the moment late Sunday lunch today. Ordered summer rolls for our appetizer. Fresh, and our waitress brought out an extra spicy sauce she thought we'd enjoy. She was right. We ordered pad Thai and panang curry with sticky rice. The food was fresh, hot, and spicy. Very good service. We also enjoy their lunch specials during weekdays.

“Good but not "Ono"”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Hawaii Revealed gives this Thai an "Ono," meaning one of the best. We found it very good but only average when compared with other Thai restaurants we have enjoyed. The guide book also commented on "snippy service," but we found the service excellent and very friendly.
