Excellent food. Go after sundown or suffer eyeball incineration right before. The could really use roll up shades.

I chose a pig leg dish. It was marvelous, tender & succulent with a crispy outside. Not greasy with a hint of chinese spices. The only ho-hum dish was the summer rolls, everthing else was very good.

Make reservations as the cafe is popular.

We stick to the basics (Pad Thai, curries, summer rolls, etc..) and have not been disappointed. We haven't experienced dine-in as we always get it to-go, but the to-go service has always been fast and friendly. Definitely recommend eating here.

Met my daughter for lunch, and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It is really authentic, with a nice atmosphere. If you like Thai food check it out, as it is conveniently located on Nimitz HWY.

My wife and I have eaten here a half dozen times over the past 3 years. The food is very good and very tasty. The seating is a combination of booths and tables. Decor is nicely done, and there's a constant feed of Thai soap operas and/or music videos fed to the TV screens mounted on the walls (Thai performers with Thai subtitles). My dish was penang curry with chicken, and it was great, probably my favorite of the Honolulu Thai establishments. My wife's was the Pad Thai chicken, also very good. And, the portions were generous. The spring roll appetizers were good but not that special compared to the other dishes. I'd rate this place four stars except for the inattention of the staff. It took three requests of two different servers to get a carryout container. They kept forgetting. They seemed to get distracted by every fresh couple coming in for a seat. They were not rude, just distracted enough to make it a little irritating. I'll still go back, maybe a little earlier next time like one reviewer suggested.

Caught a taxi there and back - definitely off the beaten track but walking in there the smell is amazing and they even have authentic Thai food! Very reasonable and overrate because couldn't bear to leave it!
