Our hostess was from Thailand, so you know it's authentic. The food tasted great, especially the peanut sauce. Service was excellent as well. The location is right on Alii Drive next to the ocean. We enjoyed a sunset view while dining outdoors.

Great Thai food in a relaxed setting with outdoor seating by the water. Their Tod Mun Pla (fish cakes) is excellent, and they also have excellent shrimp cakes (poocha), which I had never eaten before. I also love their cold salads (with beef, shrimp, etc)....More
