The food is really good. The atmosphere is excellent. Staffing is always friendly. They duck dishes, noodles dishes, vegetable dishes and curry are delicious and tasty. They house sauce that they cook with most dishes is very tasty. You can even order it mild or extremely Thai HOT!! They chai tea are the best too.

We stopped for lunch and it was good. The portions were not to big and not to small. My son wanted hot and got hot. I did not and got normal. My was very tasty. It is nice to be able to get Thai without burning your mouth and still having favor. If you want to burn your mouth -... More

My wife and I gave this place a try tonight. We ordered spring rolls, drunken noodles and pad kra pow. The spring rolls didn't have much flavor and came with some watery clear sauce. The strange thing though was that the two entrees came out about five minutes apart and neither had any spice in them. Zero. About as spicy... More

We got the crispy spring rolls, pad Thai with chicken and green curry with chicken. Quick service. Excellent Thai food. I got my meal medium spicy and it was just right. It had some kick and I enjoyed every bit of it. My husband got hot and it was as spicy as he likes it. Great flavor. They know how... More

Great Lunch special for $10. Excellent Thai food with great service. Hostess / Owner was very friendly and shared fruits / spices to take. Overall our best meal in our 10 day Hawaii trip. Our family really enjoyed the food and hospitality!

This is the best Thai food I've ever had. It tasted pretty much like my favorite place at home but something about it made it better. It was very fresh. The waitresses went above and beyond to help us.

The food is good and fresh. I ordered my panang curry medium and it hardly had any spicy. Otherwise it's good and fast.

We noticed Krua in the way out of town and decided to try it for lunch. The interior is beautiful and we were welcomed (what a concept). We met Nik, the owner, and she was dedicated to serving our needs. Lunch was fabulous. I had Larb and my wife had a lunch special of veggies in a garlic sauce. Fabulous.... More

We ate here a few years ago. I did not remember anything negative about this place. My BW wanted the Drunken Noodles and she loved that dish so much that it disappeared quickly. Our server was Rosina and I thought that she did a special job helping us. I enjoy food that is spicy but not enough to order Thai... More
