We were the only one there! That should have been our first clue. The food was just OK. The prices were not bad, but I would rather pay more for better food.

Met a local at Buzz's and he recommended Champa. We enjoy spicy, flavorful Thai food and Champa really came through.
We had Curry, Soup and Rice entrees with a few appetizers.
All were cooked exactly as described.
Only complaint.. the water glasses are to small, but they are always being refilled by the great wait staff

A good friend, also from the mainland, took me here as he's a frequent diner there. Very good and fresh. Service was friendly, but dishes arrived with little coordination - pretty much as the cook finished - and no discipline as to whether it was an appetizer or an entree. No liquor license, so BYOB. But, that certainly keeps the tab low. Dinner for two was 25% less than my same-day lunch for one at Maiposa (the Neiman Marcus cafe at Ala Moana center). That adds a star! Worth a try if you have a car and want good Thai-style food at very reasonable prices.

Champa Thai Restaurant on Waialae Ave. has always been our favorite for Thai food. It's a small family owned restaurant with good prices and good food. They will cook something not on the menu or modify their dish upon request. Normally we have the Stuffed Chicken Wings as a starter, Green Papaya Salad, Tom Yum "Shrimp or Fish" or "you can ask them to add both", Gaen Keow Wan (Green Curry) chicken, Pork Larb, Sticky Rice and White Rice.

BYOB. Down on the opposite side of the block is a fine liquor store "Tamura's Fine Wines & Liquors Waialae" which has a wide variety and selection of beers and wines. Champa Thai does not charge a fee if you BYOB. The restaurant is small, so, gets crowded for dinner. We call in advance with our order, the number in our party, time of arrival and the table with hot appetizers is ready when we walk through the doors. Great service and nice friendly staff.

This is a place the locals go to, so, don't plan to see many tourists. Kind of off the beaten path as a tourist area and located close to the colleges in the area.

One other warning is the Mild, Medium or HOT. Normally we order mild to medium and ask for the hot pepper sauce on the side. HOT is HOT, so, you get what you ask for. Recommend the mild with the hot pepper sauce on the side unless your a seasoned HOT Thai food fan.
