Beautiful and large room for this restaurant situated a short distance from the main busy street of Kona. The welcome is really kind, discret, friendly and in the real Thai spirit. The main dish was good, done with fresh products and cook at the moment....More

Had an awesome curry with chicken and mango. We stuck with a mid level heat and that turned out to be perfect and complemented the mango sweetness with the curry flavor. Yum. Also ordered the drunken noodles dish which we loved. Worth the walk away...More

We had a good time. The service was great. We weee allowed to do family style, sharing the entrees. We had a curry, pad thai, and a cashew chicken. My favorite was the pangang curry.

My family loved the food here, especially the mango curry I'd ordered... and they don't even like mangoes! Sublimely layered with subtle, interesting flavors, it was the hit of the meal. But everything we had was really good. Exceptionally friendly service was a nice touch...More

Thank you for your comments and we too love our "seasonal" Mango Curry... best part about it is that it's locally grown and hand picked here in Kailua-Kona.

I love Thai food but it's so hard to find good Thai food. But this place is off-the-chain. They give amazing Thai tea. So sweet and tea-y and good. I love Thai tea. The tea was strong and black and not as sweet as usual....More
