This is a nice spot with adequate Thai food. Not the best and not the worst. Three stars is about what it deserves. Staff was nice and accommodating to one of our guests that was GF.

We have eaten here several times on our visits to Kona and have had an enjoyable meal each time. We love the open air second-floor atmosphere. We have tried a variety of dishes and they have all been superb. Our favorite dishes are the green coconut curry and the shrimp fried rice.

The People running the place are Thai and provided us with very good service, willing to help, and the place is clean. We found the food to be very close to Thai food we experienced in Thailand, with very... More

We stopped in after a long day of touring. The restaurant is situated downtown, overlooking the old part of town. We were seated and served promptly. The food was very good. The service was great. The facilities were clean and comfortable. The restrooms are located down the hall from the restaurant, shared with other businesses in the building. They are... More

Visited on a Saturday night, where sitting just above the downtown street provided an interesting dining experience. Had Pad Thai and Pinapple Rice as mains, with fresh Basil rolls for starters. Delicious!

Ended up here as it was the first Thai place I came across after the restaurant I wanted to visit had closed. Ordered satay prawns and chicken starter dishes and was served a full roast chicken that looked like it had been hit by a bus 5 minutes after ordering - not sure how they managed this - it was...

Lunch was sub par at best. Papaya salad was tasteless without lemon or crushed peanuts. Pad Thai with chicken was was badly prepared. Chicken satay was greasy and was most likely cooked once over. Would not recommend it ...........cheap eats but poor quality........period.

Many places close rather early in Kona, but Taeng-On Thai was open around 8:30pm and we stopped in to sample their fare. Neither of us was very hungry, so we split an order of pineapple fried rice (a house specialty) and a veggie delight with pork--both of which were presented to our table quickly. We were impressed with the large... More
