Only the best Thai that I have had in Hawaii and maybe the best that I have ever had anywhere. I'll have to go back many times to try many more items to be sure that I didn't just luck out with the combination of Papaya Salad, Green Curry (which I test all Thai restaurants by), Sticky Rice and Siam Honey Lemonade which were just about perfect.
The samples of my husband's choices were just as tasty and interesting as the ones that had ordered for myself. My husband is no fan of Thai but he declared this the best Thai that he ever had. He was willing to go back in the same week for a second visit when most times I have to beg him to join me for Thai once every couple of months.
The portions were very generous. I ordered an extra side of Sticky Rice to take home to go along with the leftovers, all of which I ate for breakfast the minute that I woke because couldn't resist. Have you ever had Green Curry that was great - cold? I never had curry that was any good cold until this one.
Oh yes, the staff was very nice and, it is as others have said: "a store front in a strip mall" but it is nice inside and very clean with lots of seating. There is plenty of free parking right in front and I like to be a bit away from the bar seen on Alii Dr. anyway.
BUT the most important thing is: This place is ALL ABOUT the FOOD! Kona, and maybe the whole Big Island, is short on great food - so don't miss this place if you are in town and you like Thai even a little!
So what else can I say? You must try it for yourself to understand how good this food is. Don't miss this place if you like great Thai.
