We had a great experience at dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Very cool waiters and waitresses that made sure we had everything. Food came quickly. Live entertainment was a plus.

Horrible food with no taste. No salt on in the dishes. Salmon was hard and dry and over fried. Curry had literally no curry!!

They even forgot to serve the tea we ordered!! Then it was included in the bill. We then let them know and they took it out, but no apology offered!!

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER go there!!!

The waitress is super friendly and helpful. The food is in general too salty to our taste. It could be the Thai is salty in general. It has live music so hard to have a conversation at the table. They do charge 20% gratitude automatically.

We loved this place! Live music, great food, great service! Best thing on the menu was the JB roll. Also ordered the yellow curry and pad Thai with chicken. I would highly recommend.

We are here 4 out of our 6 days visiting Kauai. Incredible food. The papaya salad is among the best things I’ve ever eaten and their curry is so delicious we craved it all day.

I had the lunch bento box. Very good but I’ve had better sushi rice which is why I only gave the food a 4 and the California roll had cream cheese in it! Not what I’m used to. Very quiet at lunch and service was excellent.

We typically go here when we visit the island, we arrived for happy hour, the Maiti was quite good. We usually have Sushi but chose Thai food this time, it was ok but the dishes were a little pricey we thought. We started with some buffalo wings, but they were basically deep fried drummettes with a thai sweet chili on the side. We shared a curry, a rice bowl and a pad Thai, our favourite was the Pad Thai. But we all thought all the chicken in our dishes tasted a little weird, it wasn't bad, just had a weird different flavour. The service was ok, the Hawaiian entertainment was nice.

We went to enjoy music on a Friday, made my reservations too early for music, but great happy hours& service! They weren’t sure what to do with us when we wanted to stick around for music & more drinks though, finally left 15 minutes into music, would have preferred to stay and listen to music though

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.
