    The summer rolls were huge----or at least larger than the ones I've had at other Thai restaurants...and they were goooood. The pad seyu was tasty but not as good as their pad thai noodles. My husband had their special----the crab fried rice and he was not disappointed. Wish I had enough tummy space to try their pumpkin curry, which I understand is what they are known for. Will be back.

    We're repeat customers and have been coming to "To Thai For" for years. It has such a pleasant a peaceful dining room and the staff are just great. Natalie is a very sweet woman and takes time to chat with us every time.

    I am never disappointed when I visit the best Thai restaurant on Oahu. My girlfriend and I usually split an appetizer, a noodle dish and a curry. Lately though, we've found ourselves fighting over the Pad See Ew so we figured why not skip the appetizer and get THREE ENTREES! We got the Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, and then an extra spicy version of the special: PUMPKIN CURRY! In a word? Perfect.

    Somehow I find myself at this restaurant VERY frequently. We say to ourselves, "Where should we go to dinner? Well, we just went to To Thai For so we should probably go somewhere else..." Then invariably it's always, "...Hmmmm well I could definitely go for To Thai For Curry and Summer Rolls....OH WELL, let's go to To Thai For!" The food is consistent, delicious and the atmosphere is very down-home. Sometimes they get busy and things take a while but it ALWAYS ends up well worth any wait we endure.

    Really good Panang curry and this time we also tried the Kabocha curry, which was very delicious. The Pad Thai is nice and sweet, and even kid-friendly if you order it in the non-spicy variety. The service is always friendly and attentive, which makes for a great overall dining experience.

    Food was mediocre but their chicken appetizer was delish! Their yellow curry was tasty but very soupy and so much cabbage! Their pad thai with shrimp was on the sweeter side so I was not very impressed. The service was very good, the servers were great. The food was on the small serving size - not for sharing or family style. I'd say a place to go for lunch but not for a Ladies Night get-together - like we did. It was a good place to have appetizers and perhaps Thai iced coffee or the Thai Soy drinks!

    It was a simple neighborhood restaurant - great service and very good food. Not fancy, but a great meal in an out of the way, mostly local restaurant. Prices were very good and we really had a nice evening. The food is HOT, even by Tai standards, but they offer 5 levels (1-5). We had 1,2 & 3 and the 3 of us were satisfied. Our 4th member had level 4 and he loves hot food, but it was hot for him, but he enjoyed it (amd drank a lot of beer). Excellent choice for a simple dinner of very good ethnic food.

    One of my favorite places for Thai food. And I love the fact that they tell you that 'medium' is very spicy and it is. /Easy parking too...

    1. Food was excellent. 2. However, we ordered two entrees and one was delivered almost 15 minutes after the first. Unsatisfactory. 3. Waiter kept calling me and my wife "guys!" We're old enough to be his parents, and I doubt that he calls his parents "guys." 4. Lighting too bright. Absolutely no ambience in this restaurant.

    Tried out To Thai For -- friendly service, good Thai food. We had the pork chop special, the eggplant stir fry and the yellow curry. All dishes come with rice. Started off with spring rolls as an appetizer. Mostly good, moderate heat (you can ask for more).

    The food is very good. Their 'medium' spice level is everyone elses 'HOT' so be careful. I like it that way. Even with the 'heat' you do not lose any flavor in the well prepared dishes. Service was very friendly. Parking in Kaimuki during the dinner hours can be a challenge so give yourself some time.

    The heat scale is more Thai style for the chili. It is not backed off for American palates. Their medium is other Thai restaurants hot. The step between mild and medium is plenty hot for me.

    The food is so good here. You can actually taste the freshness of the ingredients, flavors standout individually so each dish is different and unique. a nice room too, not tight at all. super friendly service. And I think they have a full bar (I like BYOB but oh well! the food rocks!)

    Good Thai food with authentic flavor. They make a proper panang curry and the crab fried rice is fantastic. Beware a medium on the heat factor is pretty hot. Just like Thailand.
