We decided to try Thai food for something different. The waitress took a good amount of time explaining the menu and answering our questions about the food. I decided on the green curry medium spice and DW got the beef teriyaki. The curry was excellent...More

We have eaten at Thai Charley's several times over the last couple of years and find the food to be good and always consistent. A favorite in the Queen's Marketplace.

We wanted to get lunch and were in the Village shopping area and happened upon this restaurant. It turned out to be a delicious place for lunch. The service was good and we were able to have a pretty quick lunch.

Not bad food in a kind of smelly place. But the food is genuine Thai, variations of sea food with veggies in a soy sauce. Rice in abundance, Kona beer to refresh. Good price, reasonable, what can you expect more?

We arrive to the Waikoloa area and this was our first meal here. Good thai food and spices. Service a bit slow but not prohibitive.

This is one of the better places at Queens market place. Food was very very nice and the prices are far less than we'd expected, considering the prices elsewhere. Menu was very good, and server was very attentive. Certainly recommend this!

We ran across this place quite by accident. It was just a few miles from our hotel. Pad Thai was very good.
