Located at the back of Queen's Marketplace, Thai Charley's Cuisine was excellently priced for a touristy restaurant. The food was average, but the noodles were a bit dry. Overall, a good place to eat.

Charley's is a small, quaint restaurant. The facility is clean. The service is good. The food was fresh and tasty. It can be quite expensive to eat in the Waikoloa area, but this place was more reasonably priced. My teenage daughters had never tried Thai...More

We decided to try Thai food for something different. The waitress took a good amount of time explaining the menu and answering our questions about the food. I decided on the green curry medium spice and DW got the beef teriyaki. The curry was excellent...More

We have eaten at Thai Charley's several times over the last couple of years and find the food to be good and always consistent. A favorite in the Queen's Marketplace.

We wanted to get lunch and were in the Village shopping area and happened upon this restaurant. It turned out to be a delicious place for lunch. The service was good and we were able to have a pretty quick lunch.

Not bad food in a kind of smelly place. But the food is genuine Thai, variations of sea food with veggies in a soy sauce. Rice in abundance, Kona beer to refresh. Good price, reasonable, what can you expect more?
