We had spring rolls, pad Thai, and fish in a red curry sauce. The fish was fantastic! The waitress highly recommended the fish she said it was a house specialty- we are so glad we tried it! The portions were generous - we ate until we were full and took the leftovers back to the condo and had them with... More

Very good Thai food. Love the papaya salad. Friendly staff. Parking can be limited. Bathrooms could be cleaner.

The food was amazing, starting with the spring rolls, fried crispy but not greasy, with... More

I've been twice in the past couple weeks and have been so impressed. The flavors are balanced in a wonderful weaving of different species. Every dish was perfect. The whole experience is beyond my every expectation. If you are looking for some great food, this is the place.

Stumbled upon this place when searching for "takeout" for my teens. Located in downtown Hilo on a side street with parking right outside so we ventured in. Much nicer then expected. We ordered food to go but would recommend for a casual date night meal. Ordered Chicken Pad Thai, Eggplant/Tofu, and vegi spring rolls w/shrimp. Not much shrimp in spring... More

A group of us went to the New Chiang Mai restaurant for Thai food. Instead of ordering personal dishes, we ordered dishes for family style consumption. Since there were eight of us, we decided to order six entrees. The best of the dishes were the evil dish with beef, a spicy stirfry with peanut sauce, the ahi (tuna) dish with... More

We asked at the Hawaiian Tropical Botanic Gardens where the best Thai food was, and they led us to Chiang Mai in Hilo. It was phenomenal. We are from LA and eat at many restaurants. This was a cut above all else, even better than Roy's in Waikoloa at the King's Shops where we ate the night before. The ono... More
