Noodle dish was excellent and would order it again. I found the "mild" beef dish too spicy for me but my host enjoyed it. Puzzling that with only two other tables with diners, we were seated next to three women and we could overhear their conversation. Why not give us a little breathing room?

I ordered take out from here tonight because I was craving Thai food. Let me tell you the food was nothing exciting. So the three dishes I ordered were Pineapple Fried Rice, Chicken Pad Thai, and Spring Rolls. I was very disappointed with the quality of their food. The Pineapple Fried Rice was not flavorful at all, the Pineapple was... More

I came here the first time in 1997 and whenever I return to Oahu I always ensure to stop in for a meal. Mama Toy is there to greet her customers. The food is extremely tasty and well priced for the quality of the numerous Thai dishes served at this restaurant. When you place your order ask the server if... More

Our sons first night home from the mainland is always dinner at Mama's (CPThai). We have been coming since our kids were very young and they are in their 20's and it is still their favorite restaurant. Mama was there with Chef Guy and the great staff was in a holiday mood. So along with our regular favorites we tried... More

If you love Thai food and especially a Thai restaurant that has amazing dessert, check out Chao Phya Thai in Kaneohe! The curries there are also delicious! The Chefs wife gave me free sticky rice to take back with my leftover curry. It's a little pricier than other Thai restaurants( $11.95 per curry, rice $3.25) but they have epic desserts... More

My boyfriend and I love their House Salad. The dressing is very tasty. We also have the Cashew Chicken dish and also the Lamb Shank stew, so very tasty. They have seating inside as well as outdoors, very nice atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, attentive and courteous. If you are in the windward side and have the hunger for... More

A bunch of Texans in Hawaii could not have been more surprised at the how much we loved the food and service at this restaurant. Mama' Toy and Chef Guy have prepared an amazing variety of authentic Thai food and Thai fusion food with fresh, local food from the Islands. The panang chicken and basil beef couldn't be beat, and...

We 3 thought we'd try a new Thai restaurant. First thing we saw outside was Chao Phya's herb garden so we knew the food would be fresh. We were seated and immediately offered a comp salad which the chef had created: brown rice, seaweed and topped with wasabi if desired. The hostess offered us suggestions with a detailed description of... More
