We spent eight nights in Hilo and tried three different Thai restaurants and they were all very good. We ate at Tina’s twice and found the food fresh, tasty and plentiful. I tried a couple of the curries and my wife did the soups.
I’m giving this eatery an excellent even though
seating is limited and food arrival time is slow. The speed is limited as there is only one chef and there are plenty of take out orders.
The wait staff was good and friendly. I like broccoli and informed the waiter and sure enough my plate came back loaded with broccoli.
I believe, Tina’s is only open on most days until five except Friday and Saturday nights.
If the place is crowded, you may have to be patient but I believe that the wait will be worth it.
