I can't believe I haven't left a review for Junjiras yet. We eat here quite often, and we enjoy everything about it. The owners are really nice, and everyone is always super friendly when you go in. It is a small walk in place you go to order and take the food out. You can take it outside, where there... More

Thai food is famous for its dishes bursting in flavor, from spicy chilies, sweet palm sugar, various herbs and a combination of textures. We have our favorite dishes and one of them is larb gai (ground chicken salad). This dish should involve very strong flavors of lemongrass, thai basil, cilantro, lime leaf and chili peppers. What we got was a... More

This is not a sit-down restaurant -- only a take-out place, which has decent but just ok food. I agree with other reviewers that there's better Thai up the road nearer to and in Kona. However, this will do in a pinch if you're down Captain Cook's way and you want something to take home.

On a recent visit we got take out twice here. It is excellent fresh tasty food and a great choice for dinner. We would highly recommend having this as a place on your list of eateries. It is only take out but there are plenty of scenic spots to stop and enjoy this tasty meal.

the food to take away was fine- nothing bad, nothing so good that I can report. What let us to choose it, was the evidence of the prices (we were looking for something very cheap) and the family owned place. Good to stop there when you do not want to pay for the service. The man doesn't speak much English... More

I chose the ginger pork stirfry, and my friend chose the satay chicken with peanut sauce. Both were OK, but honestly no more interesting than you'd make at home.

Located in a small shopping plaza, this place is inexpensive and fast but not very good. I'd suggest heading down the road to one of the many Thai restaurants in Kona. Picnic tables are available outside if you want to eat in and not carryout.
