Always busy. We had great a great lunch there. The serving was huge—we shared—and delicious. Fun to sit in the sun and chat with tourists from London and Wisconsin.

We saw this very rustic restaurant from the road. As it was packed with people we figured it was worth a try. The service was excellent from the time they described the meals to the point they delivered the food couldn't have been smoother. Although two of us did not have the specials there was very little time difference between... More

We had read reviews, then met someone who had once worked with Pranee. They guided us on what to try & what to share. Very excellent choices. Seating is limited but most everyone shares their big tables. Very friendly atmosphere. I can see why this place is so popular. The portions are large, good prices & utterly delicious. Wish we...

Hana restaurants do not tend to be highly acclaimed. Frankly, it is tough to find many reviews that get you excited to eat anywhere in Hana. We love Thai food, and this may be some of the best Thai food we have ever had. What's funny is this is basically a food truck. My wife ordered the best dish, which... More

If you drive the Road to Hana, you can find this quaint little spot after arriving. Fresh and good food at good prices. I had the chicken wings with papaya salad. I like spicy food so it was perfect to recharge my senses after an intense drive. The papaya salad provided a perfect balance.

The food was great. Drunken Noodles were awesome. The family and I had a great time looking at the view and watching an occasional mongoose run by the parking area. Really glad we stopped.

This was probably the best food for the dollar on the island. Considering that I usually like spicy food, we were still a little caught off guard by the spiciness of the dishes. The greatest surprise though was the wait, it's completely worth it just be ready for it (that and the spiciness).

This is a must stop in Hana. So good! Don't let the look of the outside scare you but beware they are not open everyday and I believe they close st 4 pm. Definitely worth the visit ! Crispy Opaka and green papaya salad was fantastic!!

Went around 3pm and they were out of the daily specials, so I recommend going early for more options but they still had several items to choose from. I can't remember the name of what I ate, but it was really good.
