Delicious pad thai. If you're visiting Kauai, this may be the closest you get to Thailand for a while guys - you should do it!

The Thai food is some of the best I have had from Florida to California. Wonderful green curry. I do not eat rice and the sweet owner/chef suggested using cabbage. Great idea. It is walking distance from the Marriott Lihue and a welcome alternative. We will return before the end of our week to try some of the other menu items. Loved the charming owner.

Very convenient to the Lihue Marriott complex, right across the street! Inexpensive sandwiches and curries. Quiet indoor or outdoor seating in the Harbor View mall courtyard. We loved getting away from the hotel and saving some coin with better food at Surf.

We found this little gem in the Harbor Mall, and ate there 3 times during our 5 days on Kauai. The owner was very personable, and makes some great Thai dishes (we particularly liked the yellow curry and the pineapple one). We also ate sandwiches for lunch, with thick freshly baked bread. The cookies were also a favorite. Great little place.

We stopped in unexpected, the Chef was very polite and helpful. It was the best Pad See Ew I've had in a while, it was a nice change with the Pad Thai noodles vs. the standard wide Rice noodle I am used too. The sauce was especially good, extremely flavorful and hit the spot!
