This is not a sit-down restaurant -- only a take-out place, which has decent but just ok food. I agree with other reviewers that there's better Thai up the road nearer to and in Kona. However, this will do in a pinch if you're down Captain Cook's way and you want something to take home.

On a recent visit we got take out twice here. It is excellent fresh tasty food and a great choice for dinner. We would highly recommend having this as a place on your list of eateries. It is only take out but there are plenty of scenic spots to stop and enjoy this tasty meal.

the food to take away was fine- nothing bad, nothing so good that I can report. What let us to choose it, was the evidence of the prices (we were looking for something very cheap) and the family owned place. Good to stop there when you do not want to pay for the service. The man doesn't speak much English... More

I chose the ginger pork stirfry, and my friend chose the satay chicken with peanut sauce. Both were OK, but honestly no more interesting than you'd make at home.

Located in a small shopping plaza, this place is inexpensive and fast but not very good. I'd suggest heading down the road to one of the many Thai restaurants in Kona. Picnic tables are available outside if you want to eat in and not carryout.

First of all this place was a mistake that I found by going up to my new pharmacy (I'm a local). It's in a very old mall (Kealakekua Ranch Center) that's been there all my life (old), but I'm a foodie and this place is owned by a Thai family. You order and wait around 15 minutes, but I can...

Price was right, it was conveniently located for us. Portions were good and the food was pretty good as well. Take-out only. Nothing fancy, but decent food.
