    Angel wings were nothing like traditional Thai angel wings. They were simply fried chicken wings. No drumettes either, just the wingette portion. The spicy seafood combo was very tasty. Supposed to be with shrimp, scallop, and calamari. 4 jumbo shrimp, a ton of calamari, and very little scallops. Sizzling basil stir fry with chicken was tasty as well. We ordered both dishes medium and we have pretty good tolerance. I drank 6 glasses of water! 3 would be norm. Tasty but spicy. And there are 4 degrees of heat higher (hot, Thai hot, Lao hot and Maile hot)! Thai crepe was yummy. Online menu is outdated. The prices are 3-4 dollars higher per dish. Like every thing this restaurant is more expensive than normal.

    Ambiance and atmosphere was wonderful! Not sure if it was that our reservation was towards the end of the night (8pm) but the server never came once to our table after receiving the food. No one came by to ask how our food was and never refilled our drinks. We ordered the pad Thai which was a little too drenched in sauce, but their take on the loco moco was really tasty! We also got the calamari appetizer which was tempura style with sweet chili sauce.

    I wish I could give a better review because I have been wanting to try Thai place for a while. We set a reservation and when we got there we were seated right away. That part was fine. After that we received water and plates. Unfortunately we waited for about 15 minutes and nobody came to us. There were two servers that were talking and hanging out right next to us with some other customers outside and we were waiting there for the longest time. We end up getting up and leaving and that’s when they realize what happened. I did go back and let them know that we were waiting, and the lady apologized and said somebody will be with you soon however we left and we had dinner somewhere else. If I was the owner I would be very upset that my workers where not being attentive to make sure everyone was served when they needed to be. We will not be coming back.

    The outdoor dining area is nice but you have to deal with the hot rods racing down the street. We had soup appetizer and three entrees and everyone thought they were just average tasting. My martini was not a full serving and given it was $12 that was irritating. Will not return.

    First time here. 2/3 dishes were good, 1 was just ok. Prices a little high. Service ok even if a little distant. Reserved ‘standard’ but got sat outside at a high top (restaurant was not full). 4/5 overall (nothing quite 5/5).

    Wonderful experience! My boyfriend and I eat Thai quite a bit so we love trying it in cities that we visit. This was an excellent choice just off the main Waikiki area. It is in a shopping mall area with street tables. The inside dining area is rather small - more tables outside than inside. My only complaint would be that while seated at the bar, my seat is at a ninety degree angle from a stranger so you are awkwardly close. We happened to be next to a couple where one of the diners was unhappy with their food. The waitstaff - who I believe was Mailee - was attentive and offered to make their meal right. That was one of several examples throughout the dining experience where the waitstaff was helpful, attentive and made for a pleasant dining experience. BF had the fried rice with chicken and pineapple - Laotian hot was perfect for him. I had the chicken laab salad, medium spice. Both of our meals were delicious! This is a great value for your money (both for drinks and meals) - highly recommend!

    Food is okay. service is okay. love that they actually make it spicy. Most wait staff do not understand Thai, so just order the dish in English. Not too Thai, but Thai enough to get your fix and for ppl who are new to Thai food.

    We sat outdoors and ordered lunch for four of us. We ordered spring rolls, pad ki mao, a vegetable dish and pineapple curry with shrimp. All were very good, but we would have liked more noodles in the pad ki mao. There was a lot of beef though! The food was very tasty with our white rice and sticky rice. It was the first time I had pineapple curry (with shrimp) and enjoyed it, but others wished the pineapple were fresh vs. canned. For dessert we ordered the mango sticky rice with coconut milk. I did not enjoy it. The mango was an imported mango that was overripe. Also, I think the mango would be better chilled when served with the warm rice and warm coconut milk. We also tried the Thai iced tea and the Thai iced coffee. Both were good, but not great. It was not too noisy or dusty outside. The umbrellas had good coverage over all the outdoor tables. I would highly recommend trying this restaurant.

    We use to like this restaurant but tonight the service was horrible. Tanya was our waitress and she was absolutely rude. It felt like they didn’t care about our business anymore because they are busier. Also because we were a larger party they added tip to our bill hence it doesn’t matter how they treat us if they are already guaranteed a tip. We wanted to order from the happy hour menu at Tanya kept avoiding our table and we literally had to call her to place our order before 6pm. She got it at 5:54 but when we got our bill she punched it to reflect 6:02 and we’re NOT happy hour prices but the dishes we got were happy hour sizes. When we asked her to fix the bill she wouldn’t do it. We had to tell their manager Jeanelle. We do not feel like valued customers anymore. Don’t go here. There’s another Thai restaurant across the street, Phuket Thai, go there. You’ll get better service and the food there is delicious

    Starting with the table next to us, where the people seated recognized friends on the sidewalk and had no problem reaching over us to shake hands and chat, continuing with a too eager service, which delivered our apps and mains minutes apart, then waiting for our drink refills for some time, and finally having to choose for tips between 18 and 30% (really? A minumum of 18?), this restaurant is more form over substance. The food itself is mediocre, with some highs (nice red curry) and some lows (bland and slightly sweet chicken satay). The only highlight was the martini I ordered for $12. Will not return.
