Kind of sums up the entire experience. I’ve had far better Thai food elsewhere, although the Tum Yum soup was very good. We had two duck dishes. The Volcano duck was fairly lean and done well. Vegetables served with the dish were stone cold. Didn’t...More

My husband and I stopped here for a quick dinner. We ordered the crab lagoon appetizer and split a Panang Curry. Best Panang ever. We ordered it medium and plenty tangy for me. If it were not very rude, I might have licked that plate...More

The lunch menu here is a great deal for the area, and the green curry chicken was delicious. The salad included had a peanut dressing, just so you know. Went back a second time. If you are in Kailua-Kona for an extended period of time,...More

Krupa has a number of various lunch specials for $9.95. I enjoy their curry dishes with sides of jasmine rice and a small salad. Hard to beat this meal. Staff is always friendly. Hint, easier to park in back and use the rear entrance.

We discovered this restaurant quite by accident, but have visited twice in the past week. Great Food - love the Pineapple Curry dish. The only thing to remember is that they do not sell alcohol there, but you can BYOB.

The service was slow and unfriendly. I had a chicken dish; the chicken tasted stale and old, it was not fresh and had that strange taste chicken has, when it´s not fresh. I´ve been to Thailand several times and have experienced what good Thai food...More
