We were traveling from Honolulu to Ko Olina and decided to stop here for lunch. The restaurant is in a strip mall; nothing fancy but seemed OK. We ordered some spring rolls, a curry dish, pad thai, and some rice. All were reasonably tasty, and this was definitely enough for the both of us. It was a bit of a... More

Hi- I are here on vacation and it was good food... the service was bad. The server looked at me like I should know where to sit. Also, she was going to sit me next to a loud, noisy family, when there was no one in the restaurant. She looked at me like I was crazy! I didn't want to... More

As a lifelong food service worker and chef I tend to be critical of places I eat. Honestly, I cannot think of anything remotely negative to say about this place. You should eat there every day.

It's a decent Thai restaurant. All the usual suspects on the menu, done to a decent standard. Nothing to wow, but at the same time, satisfies enough. Service was ok, price variable. Location depressing. I don't really like looking out onto a parking lot at meal times.

Went on trip advisor because we didn't feel like getting the over priced resort food and looked for something different. Then about 3 miles from the resort we found the top rated Thai restaurant Thai Lao. The parking lot area was kind of shady but felt like home. The food was excellent fresh, not too spicy, and was probably the... More

Small neighborhood place serving authentic and tasty thai. Had the drunken noodles (pad ke mao)...amazing wide noodles spiced to perfection! The place was full of locals eating in and a busy take-out trade. I'll definitely be back!

We asked local hotel employees where they like to eat and take their families to. We asked for local non chain establishments. Several employees recommended the Thai Lao. That being said, my partner is not a fan of Asian Cuisine. We decided to try it anyway because of the local recommendation and reviews. We were NOT disappointed. The food was... More

Had a very good meal with my family. The soup rice and curry dishes were large portions and very good. The service was great. The tables were very close together. Good solid spot for Thai food. Would return.

We came for dinner last night and had a fantastic meal. Started with the satay chicken and summer rolls. Both were very good and the summer rolls particularly fresh. For mains, we split pad Thai, pineapple fried rice with pork, drunken noodles with beef and a sweet and sour chicken. All were excellent but my favorite was the drunken noodles... More
