“Very good service, good options for vegetarians”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We took a detour, on our way from Volcano Village to Hilo, to eat at Ning's since we were craving some spicy food. But be careful when you ask them to make it hot. Their pad kee mow is absolutely outstanding and so is their summer rolls.

“Great food, friendly service”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for lunch today and we were delighted by the food. The pad Thai was spectacular and the waiter happily answered out questions about various ingredients. We will eat here again!

“Best Thai I've had in the islands”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We only had a short stay in the Pahoa area, and my wife decided that she wanted Thai.

There are two places that we saw in Pahoa. The first one didn't have anyone sitting in the restaurant. We thought that was a bad sign and went on to Ning's.

Good choice!

I'm a fan of Tom Yum soup, so that's what I ordered. It was excellent! You could see that it was filled with fresh vegetables and mushrooms and cilantro. I'd ordered medium spicy. I like a little spice in my Thai. Just a warning. Medium spice is pretty spicy! Not a killer, but it was the kind that builds throughout the meal.

Service was good, but even if it wasn't, you'd put up with it for the quality of the food.

“Best Thai Food outside of Thailand”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

This is the most authentic and flavorful Thai food I have had outside of Thailand. Make a reservation, sometimes the wait for a table can be long. Bring your own alcohol but their Thai ice tea is excellent. Take out is every bit as good as eat in.

“Great fresh Thai food”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We liked the service and the food was excellent. Very fresh. We ordered all dishes medium spicy. The green papaya salad was fairly hot, the main dishes were not spicy at all. The good thing is, one can always add chili.
