Food was not good. I had 4 hairs in one of my rolls. The Keiki burger for my daughter was microwaved and it was from Costco frozen foods. I could go on and on but cmon I spent a good amount of money there and left super disappointed.

Everything started out fine and we were looking forward to our meal. Water was brought to the table and order was taken promptly. Then we waited as the first 3 plates were brought out 5 minutes apart. Then we waited and waited for the last 2 plates. We inquired as to when the rest of our order would be out. Fifty minutes after arrival of first plate and still waiting! We got check and left. Puka dog is right there and helped curb the hangry teens appetite. Not sure what happened? Food we did get was very good!

Food was tasty but shrimp portion on my green curry (for which I was charged $4 extra) was really, really tiny.

Appetizers came after main corses and price was a bit salty in comparison to other Thai restaurants in Hawaii.

The tempura shrimp in the tempura shrimp roll was far from fresh. There was no crunch to the tempura coating and the shrimp was dried out and chewy. The Spivey dish was bland, flavorless , and without even a touch of spiciness. The waiter never returned to our table so I could comment. When someone came by the table and I commented on the poor quality of the food, their response was “I’m not your waiter”. I would not recommend this restaurant. There are several great places in the island that care about the quality of the food and the happiness of their customers

Food comes out when it is ready so expect as a guy to wait a while should females in your party order something different since there might be a 20 min difference between orders. It’s a cute strip center place which has live entertainment I believe provided by family members who own this place. Food was nothing special and rice in poke bowl was clumpy. Sushi was good but avoid tuna poke bowl and cashew chicken was tough.

We have eaten here several times. The food is good but not stellar and though we enjoy the music and dancers, the volume can be a bit detrimental to conversation. But, the menu offers great variety and the service is terrific-(Judy is the greatest!) It’s a fun, casual spot.

We have been before but typically order Japanese, this time we ordered Thai, the service was great, the owner or manager even check with all the tables. We had Claudia, she is such a bubbly friendly server who we knew from Dukes. The food was tasty and hot, we each had a bowl of thai soup and shared a Pad Thai and a Chicken Rice Bowl, all were tasty. We felt the prices were a little high, either that or serving sizes was small for price we paid. However we are in Poipu, we would definitely go again.

I had ordered the pad thai with tofu but received it with chicken instead. I said it was fine, since I eat chicken, no need to return the dish. A short while later, the wait person brought out a dish of deep-fried tofu to add to my dish. It was unnecessary, but glad to see they wanted to be sure I was totally satisifed with their service. Food was delicious; we plan to return on our next visit to Kaui.

Mediocre at best! In all respects, mediocre describes the food, the service and the atmosphere. In addition, although the singer was talented, the volume was waaaay too loud. Wouldn’t go back.

The service was terrible, although a highchair was requested hours in advance they only had 2 in the entire resaurant. The live music prevented normal conversation. I can't find anything nice to say!

Service and timing of food from order to arriving at table can be a little slow. Servers seem to be spread out over the whole restaurant, not concentrated in one area. Food was okay and reasonably priced. Will likely go back for variety, just not at the top of our list.

The sushi was okay. I wasn’t that impressed with the roll I got. Our waitress was nice when we saw her. The “bar back” woman who worked there was really nice. It was the only sushi place we knew of so that is why we went there. Not sure if we will be back.

Food was great but the whole place was horribly mismanaged. We went here for our anniversary, had a reservation, but still had to wait 15 minutes for the hostess even to greet us or check us in. Our server was clearly working very hard, but she was responsible for too many tables. We waited another 15-20 minutes for our order to be taken, then 15-20 minutes later my meal actually arrived -- but my husband's didn't until more than 20 minutes after that. I had eaten and plate was cleared for at least 10 minutes before his came out. Luckily my husband is awesome and didn't mind me eating my hot food while it was hot. It would have been nice to actually eat together, at the time we planned and reserved, for our special date. It was simply terrible all the way around, except for the food and the one server who was clearly working so hard. Please train your hostesses, fohod runners, and hire more servers!

We had excellent service from Claudia. The food was great as well. We ordered sushi and various curry dishes. Be prepared for the very loud drum band at 6 p.m. at the entrance. They were fantastic but you can’t visit during their performance.

We didn’t have high hopes as we expected a quick dinner, but at least figured “How bad could pad Thai be?! Sadly, we were mistaken. The food wasn’t good, service was poor, and when they delivered a dish to us after we already paid and were standing to leave...welp, that pretty much summed up our experience. We did enjoy the live music, and the waitress tried hard on what seemed to be a particularly busy night. But there’s nothing she could’ve done about the poor food taste. If you do eat here, we recommend the shrimp tempura, which included 2 small shrimp and mostly veggies. Aloha.
