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 outside seems to have limited parking and some of the locals seemed a tad sketchy, but we had no problem.

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 dine in.

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!
