“Mango curry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Big chunks of mango in the mango curry. A wonderful mixture of sweet and spice. Always a good choice when they have it.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Great food and great selection. A little hard to find, but worth it. As an added bonus, you are right across from Kona Brewing Company. Stop by there, too.

“Amazing food, the best thai I have ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

I have been to many many thai restaurants everywhere in US, this is by far is the best or the most authentic. The flavor of my tom yum coconut soup was really great, it had a lot if various veggies in addition to the regular ingredients. My husband's green papaya salad was amazing even though 'thai spicy', the combination of flavor and spiciness were supreme! The main courses were Mango curry and pineapple fried rice with both fruits being fresh (not frozen or canned), the taste and flavor were fantastic!!!! Our vegan needs were accommodated with ease and no problems, service was implacably fast, cordial and overall experience fabulous! The place itself is a bit dingy, but the food and great atmosphere are definitely worth it! Prices were not too high : for two appetizers and two dinners about $52 before tips. We will definitely be coming back!!!!
