Where do I begin? We visited this restaurant because it was mentioned in some travel book. Let's start with the positives: Waitress was very friendly, but she did not seem to have much interest in getting our bill to us promptly or to check on our water. She seemed to be working hard though, but we think she just had some high needs customers at the other table? Not sure. Second positive, the decor has alot of furniture and statues which give you the feel of Thailand. Now, on to the negatives: We ordered a porkchop dish. It contained TWO small porkchops and the rest of the plate was ladened with veggies. Cost: $16.50. EGADS! Second, before we even ate, we had to clean the dishes ourselves. They are plastic dinnerware, and obviously the dishwasher could not get them clean. They all had some sticky film on them. Third, our other dishes were skimpy (about 10 oz. of food for the curry dish and most of that weight came from the sauce) and overpriced. We don't plan to return because the filth was too much for us as well as the PRICING for typical Thai cuisine. Nothing spectacular with the taste, but nothing awful either.

My husband and I tried this restaurant on Thursday night. My thai iced tea was oversweetened and undrinkable. The chicken satay was pretty good, although I prefer a little less lemongrass in the peanut sauce, and the portion was pretty small. The phad se-ew was fishy and inedible, and the red curry was only slightly better. For that - one drink, one appetizer, two main dishes - plus one portion of white rice, we paid $50 plus tip. This cannot possibly be the best thai food in Honolulu - please learn from my mistake and don't eat here.

We trekked from the south side of Waikiki to get a taste of this famous Thai restaurant. Unfortunately, we were probably both a little too tired to really enjoy it all. Still, the open air seating and collection of Thai decorations helped set a relaxing, cozy mood. The food was good, a great selection of vegetarian as well as meat. I had the game hen which was decent and new to me, but grilled really well. The vegetarian spring rolls were out of this world, get them! My drink, I can't remember what it was, was mediocre but they had variety so I wouldn't avoid specialty drinks if I went back. The only down side was it's right on a major road, near an intersection, so you frequently hear traffic and city buses come to a halt/start up. Also, some of the tables are a bit too close for comfort.

I'm pretty sure this place serves the worst Thai I've ever had. No balance, no focus. I really can't believe how sub-par Keoni's is. The oversalted tom yum tasted like little more than cheap chicken broth, the calamari salad had luke warm squid that were chewy and bland, and both the chicken and beef entrees would have been outdone by frozen supermarket stirfry blends. I won't even bother describing the service, just relay the reaction I had when I asked about the fish of the day - ""It's a whole fried red snapper and I think it's like thirty five bucks or something.""

We ordered string beans with tofu, ended up being tofu with string beans. Had to send it back for more string beans. Portions are reasonable. Green curry was delicious and there were no leftovers. I wouldn't go back. Ambiance: statutes for sale all over the place: very tacky.

This restaurant had rave reviews from several magazines and sites and so on and is apparently very popular with celebrities. So, we went there with super high expectations. The restaurant's ambience is something - but its way too much (you'll know when u get there). The food is great. We had two vegetarian choices and they were both very good. Overall, worth going there once.
