You can order your dish with the spice level you prefer and if you ask for spicy, you get spicy AND delicious. Start with the summer rolls, though, you get fresh and tasty. There's plenty for 2 or more. My favorite dish is the Chinese...More

Pahoa is a nice little rural community in the middle of 'old Hawaii'...about as far removed from Waikiki as you can get except for Ka'u! We liked the curry and the fried rice that was made with brown rice...we had enough to take home! Highly...More

Pahoa is a very funky place. Not much to do there except eat. Ning’s Thai restaurant looked cheerful and inviting so we decided to try it out. They have signs on the tables warning that they will not give refunds for food that is too...More

My husband and I stopped in at Ning’s for lunch today and were totally happy with the food. We both ordered Yello Curry, mine with squid and his with shrimp. Delicious! Medium hot was a little hotter than my husband expected. I ordered mild and...More

Couldn't get a table here as we kept managing to arrive just as they were closing (in Pahoa, almost everything closes at 9pm it seems) - but superb service - they would do a takeaway just after hours and we enjoyed the first one so...More

Went twice during my visit. Staff was so nice and sweet. Shrimp Summer rolls, papaya salad were fantastic. Our medium spiced dishes were not really consistent. My husband always got off easy and my dishes seemed pretty hot! May want to go with mild spice...More

Fairly quick service. Cute, quaint, open dinning area. Food was really tasty, and I feel they added the proper amount of spice based on our request.

Ning's is a very small place, sort of cafe size, very informal and the opposite of corporate. Mostly people don't even book. I'd be surprised if they run to gift certificates. But you could contact the owner directly to see... More
