I had the medium chicken curry and beans, my partner had the yellow chicken curry & our friend had the honey beef. We all thought the food was excellent and the service was great.

This restaurant was an oasis in a sea of fast food and chain restaurants. The prices were on the medium side, but the service and atmosphere was supurb. The chef sent out a sample of some soup he was making which only added to our dining enjoyment. You can't go wrong stopping here and trying out their Pad Thai. I... More

Noodle dish was excellent and would order it again. I found the "mild" beef dish too spicy for me but my host enjoyed it. Puzzling that with only two other tables with diners, we were seated next to three women and we could overhear their conversation. Why not give us a little breathing room?

I ordered take out from here tonight because I was craving Thai food. Let me tell you the food was nothing exciting. So the three dishes I ordered were Pineapple Fried Rice, Chicken Pad Thai, and Spring Rolls. I was very disappointed with the quality of their food. The Pineapple Fried Rice was not flavorful at all, the Pineapple was... More

I came here the first time in 1997 and whenever I return to Oahu I always ensure to stop in for a meal. Mama Toy is there to greet her customers. The food is extremely tasty and well priced for the quality of the numerous Thai dishes served at this restaurant. When you place your order ask the server if... More

Our sons first night home from the mainland is always dinner at Mama's (CPThai). We have been coming since our kids were very young and they are in their 20's and it is still their favorite restaurant. Mama was there with Chef Guy and the great staff was in a holiday mood. So along with our regular favorites we tried... More

If you love Thai food and especially a Thai restaurant that has amazing dessert, check out Chao Phya Thai in Kaneohe! The curries there are also delicious! The Chefs wife gave me free sticky rice to take back with my leftover curry. It's a little pricier than other Thai restaurants( $11.95 per curry, rice $3.25) but they have epic desserts... More
