We've been on the Hawaiian islands for 2 weeks and have had plenty of good food. However, this Thai restaurant is hands down the best meal we've eaten at. Tip for eating there...If you don't normally put jalapeños on food or other hot condiments, you'll want to order your food with the "mild" spice level. (Jalapeños don't come in the... More

Very good Thai but apparently they like to use heat order medium and you will get what is hot in most places. A note under the glass on the table warns that there is no returning dishes once they come. That said, the papaya salad and soup were first class, just a bit too hot--though we did acclimate. The street... More

A small and quaint family owned restaurant in "downtown" Pahoa. Don't let the simple decor deceive you as the food is complex. fresh, and spiced to your taste. We love spicy foods in general....found their Hot level to be be more super-hot. Nose blowing/forehead wiping hot. Can't imagine the Thai Hot level that they offer. Great for take out or... More

Super restaurant. BYOB. The food is hot - medium would be considered hot anywhere else so don't go mad. We ate here three times. The staff are super efficient for such a busy place. It has a lively vibe without being too noisy. Perfect Thai.

I ordered this as take out to eat at our air bnb. When I walked in I was happy to see it was busy, it usually means its good! The food was fantastic and pretty decent serving size too. I wanted to eat it the following day too but my family voted otherwise for exploration reasons!

We were staying in Pahoa for a few nights and the dining options didn't look great: we don't like live music so the number one rated restaurant was out of question. The menu at the Paolo's bistro didn't look appealing to me (I'm Italian), and peering through the windows the dishes looked quite heavy. This left just Ning: we were... More

My husband and I went to Pahoa to try Ning's Thai because there we read a great review from a fellow Vegan traveller. We found the service was not very friendly and the service a little slow for just us in the restaurant. My husband really enjoyed his food but I was disappointed with the summer rolls and the curry.... More
