“Marvelous Maile's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

This local bistro is so good that we went to Maile's twice in five nights. It was a thirty minute drive from our vacation rental but that's how good it was. The first time, we had dinner on a Saturday night at the bar as we had not made a reservation. We loved being entertained by Maile's husband. The next time we went early to enjoy happy hour which I think was 5-7pm? Maile remembered us and comped us some starters and desserts to try, given we had travelled over 8000 miles just to eat in her restaurant. The food and service was Marvelous.

“Always a favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013

If you love Thai food, you will love Maile's Thai Bisto located in Hawaii Kai. The wheelchair parking and access into the restaurant is good and we have never had an issue with the service or the quality of the good. It's a great place to go with a group and dine family style. Lots of delicious Thai dishes and our favorites are the curries, the pad thai and salad rolls. We always make a trip or two to Maile's every year we visit Oahu. Haven't had a bad experience yet.

“A local treasure in Hawaii Kai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

We dine at Maile's at least once a week. The food is consistently excellent and creates somewhat of an addiction for. I am a fan of the TomYum soup. The restaurant is pleasant and the wait staff are responsive.

“Best thai food short of going to Thailand!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2013

The service to start was outstanding. Very prompt and happy. The food and drink was even more outstanding. The calamare has to be the best ever...

“Great Thai food and drinks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

Found Maile's just by looking for something close on Yelp and what a find! Thai is one of my favorites so I'm pretty picky and Maile's was fantastic. Wish I could remember what we ordered... but they were all great, so I think it's probably a place where you can't go wrong.
