This is a dedicated family run restaurant with fantastic food and servers. It has a friendly, warm, inviting atmosphere. The Pad Thai and Penang Curries were magnificent. I could eat there every day and never get tired of it

One of the best Thai restaurants in Kona! The Thai Basil Burger is my go to. Those flavors are simply so good!

Bad, rude customer service. Food is average. A bit pricey. Not worth the over 1 hour wait for food. Customers arriving way after us were served food before us. Have patronized this establishment in the past but because of this bad dining experience, will not return. Bangkok House, Thai Rin, Krua Thai, Royal Thai Cafe in Kona are very good. I suggest giving them a try

Had dinner and all dishes were tasty and spiced to perfection. Very busy restaurant. While lacking in decor the food makes up for it. Large selection of choices on the menu. Staff friendly and helpful in choosing dishes.
No alcohol, but you can bring your own bottle. Many people had their own wine and beer at their tables. Gets very busy, so plan to get their early or you may have to wait for a table.
Prices reasonable.
Will definitely go back when in Kona again.

Ate there twice during our visit. Had four different dishes with apps; all were outstanding!!! Easy on the wallet as well.
