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

Our hostess at our AirBnB recommended this restaurant and she was so right. We ordered a variety of appetizers to share among three adults. Delish, fresh, wow. You can't go wrong ordering that way here. Ask your server for suggestions, too. Cleanest restaurant I think I have been in in ages, too. I dare you to find any dust. That's... More

Fantastic dinner and lovely hostess. They were great at offering suggestions but willing to do anything you want. Really fun in a group and the dessert surfboard was awesome too! We will be going frequently!

Chef Guy, Mina and their wonderful staff is AWESOME. It is like a family restaurant. Excellent food, quality ingredients that can be tasted and the genuine warmth of the staff is astounding. It is more than just thai cuisine. The Prime rib rivals Haleiwa Joes! They cook everything themselves even the desserts.One of those got to go places.

Friendly stuff. Servicings were small. Does not have as good "Thai" taste as other restaurants. Used pad thai noodles for everything instead of thick noodles for Pai sew ewe.

New interior decorating lends to a better ambiance , Mama Toy is still there to supervise, and the news chef and staff have things going in the right direction! Had a great dining experience, the new chef made a specialized dish for us and was very personable - a great dining experience, great food and atmosphere!
