Spicy noodles not spicy, you need to mix you chili in yourself. The noodles are of high quality and very tasty. A light salty so order a beer or Mai Thai. Staff very nice. Clean. Take credit cards. On Main Street. Nonsmoking.

I picked up carry-out for dinner. The pictures on the menu made the food look better than it was. I know presentation is tough when things are packed in to-go containers, but a little garnish would go a long way toward making spring rolls look appetizing rather than like sticks of wood in a styrofoam container. I expected to get... More

I had a good experience because it was nice to sit outside and the food was good. The people watching and view is great and the service was good.

While the location is nice (right across from the beach) not much else excited us. Very slow, inattentive service, dining room cluttered with shipping boxes and other random junk, food was so-so. Wait staff was friendly enough but clearly unmotivated. We won't be going back.

To be fair, it was Thanksgiving and they were busy...but our server had definitely checked out about an hour before we got there. The food was typical Thai, and tasty. It's right across from the ocean on Ali'i, so the atmosphere is nice. Just don't go here if you are in a hurry!

We grabbed some lunch here and my wife and I got the green curry with fish and yellow curry with beef. My wife is Thai stated that the green curry was very "Americanized". Either way the food was still good.

We also picked a strawberry and a mango daiquiri for drinking. Positive: + Good choice of Thai Food + No long waiting + Sea view + Fair price level (total... More

The food here was delicious. I'm vegan and the hostess told me the green curry was vegan when I asked so I was super excited. I had a veggie green curry and the bowl was full of veggies! The curry was not super thick or sweet. Overall a really good meal.

We were seated in the dirt under a tree ,the street is busy and noisy so not the best outdoor seating. The food was okay,we thought it lacked flavour. For a Thai restaurant our meals were bland and not hot at all. We both ordered medium hotness. The mixed drinks were horrible not a place to order blended drinks. The... More
