Wow! What an amazing experience!! I loved this restaurant and the food was phenomenal. The thought that was put into the various dishes was amazing and all of it complemented each other really well. I loved how personable the staff was and how they really cared for us. It was not only good food and service but a great experience, one that was really fun! Didn't know what to expect going in but I loved every minute of it!

I absolutely love the experience there. It’s like having a dinner at uncles family house. Everyone is close and enjoy cooking together. Yes, the owner is strict but it’s in a playful way. Once you know the Asian boss-joking way, u know what I’m talking about. He chose the dinner according to our liking and disliking 100% VEGAN. We will definitely be back!

If you want a fun experience, this is it! There is a menu, however, you likely won't be using it. It's family style dining. The chef will get to know you, and then he will prepare a meal for you and your group. . Pretty much everything was amazing.

One of the more unique experiences I've had at a restaurant. Trust the owner, he's not gonna steer you wrong. All the food was delicious with flavors/combinations I've never experienced. I can see how it could be difficult if you really wanted to order one particular dish.. but... if that's what you want then you'd probably be better off elsewhere. The menu just isnt designed for that.
Highly highly recommend if you're in Honolulu.

The one star is not for the food. The food was quite delicious; some of the best Thai food I have ever had. The one star is because the owner/head chef is...quite honestly...volatile, short tempered, and incredibly rude. We watched him have a screaming match with one of his own employees (who was maybe only 20), continually and repeatedly degrade his female employees; speak down to them, and generally unpleasant to be around. He was quite lovely to us, which made the switch shocking. We felt obliged to mention our disappointment to him over his treatment of his employees. Honestly, it left such a bad taste in our mouth and ruined our entire meal and experience here. If I’m spending money at your institution, I need to know that your ethics, your treatment of employees, and the vibe you cultivate is one of openness and kindness. Will not come here again.
