This is a restaurant we visit fairly frequently when in Kona. Good food, outdoor seating with water views, good service, nice folks.

Great Thai food. Really enjoyed the Rama with sticky rice. Chicken satay very good. Spicy noodles four stars. Cashew chicken excellent.

Best pad thai I've had since Thailand. So fresh! Panang curried fish was tasty too. Too bad our holiday is over...

Do not order pad Thai if you ar looking for authentic food. Cashew chicken was soupy and rice had to be ordered separately. Would highly recommend you go to Royal Thai cafe in Keauhou Shopping centre where the food is amazing.

We wanted to sit outside and see the water, but it was right on the road. It was not as noisy as we thought it would be and the people watching was interesting. The food was good and the service was fine.

Food was good and decently priced. if possible sit outside on their patio as it overlooks the ocean. Great for people watching and seeing the sunset!

We had a late lunch here the other day, with a table overlooking the waves crashing onto the rocks, a lovely breeze, and wonderful food. Both the panang chicken and the pad thai were amazing. Two thumbs up, highly recommend this place.

We ate here on Ironman Day as it was one of the only places that wasn't packed. Food took a while considering we were the only ones eating here but food was good enough for lunch. Wouldn't go out of my way to return if I was in Kona again.

With all the restaurant choices in Kailua-Kona, there's no particular reason I can see for this one to stay in business especially in such a prime location [directly opposite from the ocean]. Two of us had the very worst Pad Thai I've ever eaten served in a manner that was almost rude [without excuse since the restaurant was almost empty].

Thank athenaed
