The owner puts her heart and soul into her food. This is a family run restaurant that we love to eat at every week or so. The green curry and spicy noodle are our favorite. She also does a mean Coconut soup and tom yum. She does take out too..

Would of eaten here more then just once when we are in the area but the rest of my party aren't Thai food fans. I had the Pad Thai that was very good. The yellow chicken curry is really good and so is the Tom Yum soup. The biggest problem is the service is slow but she lets you know right away that everything is custom made and it isn't very busy so she is mostly cooking by herself. The wait wasn't too bad though as they have trivia cards on the table.

We're staying in Pahoa this week and this was our 1st choice to try out, what a blessing! True, she was working alone last evening, the place was busy and she was indeed a dervish whirling around attending to everything while warning everyone as they came in that she was working alone. Our choice was to stay. We shared the summer rolls with shrimp, excellent. Vern had a curry dish with pork that was just delightful! (Although he went medium heat I still loved it). I had a Phad (noodle) dish with chicken and it was truly exquisite. She's a gracious woman. The folks that came in and weren't able or willing to wait were directed to the other Thai restaurant down the street. That's special!

we got there early, but still had to wait (we had been alerted this would be the case). the owner is a one woman dervish--cooking, seating, taking orders...she does it all. the food is made to order and therefore you can expect a wait, but you can also expect excellent curry. she had a few extra hands later in the evening and that improved the service.

Closed Monday and Tuesday Food is hand cooked each dish and really great flavors. Ask for Sam to prepare her famous thai papaya salad. It is the best on the island! Moderate prices
