First dinner on the Big Island and it was good at Charlie's. Fresh and plenty of selections. Good service as well.

We have eaten at Thai Charley's several times over the last couple of years and find the food to be good and always consistent. A favorite in the Queen's Marketplace.

My sister and I found this restaurant at our resort back in 2015 and we knew on our cousins get away we definitely wanted to share this spot with the family. Dinner was fantastic and I definitely recommend anyone visiting the Waikoloa Resort on the Big Island to stop by for lunch or dinner!

We rolled down the Saddle Road (the improvements to which make it much less of a challenge than it used to be) and entertained thoughts of lunch at Roy Yamaguchi's place in the King's Shops at Waikoloa. Roy's was closed for lunch. Disappointed, we drove around Queen's Marketplace until we found Charley's Thai Cuisine. The place was nearly empty as... More

We wanted to get lunch and were in the Village shopping area and happened upon this restaurant. It turned out to be a delicious place for lunch. The service was good and we were able to have a pretty quick lunch.

Not bad food in a kind of smelly place. But the food is genuine Thai, variations of sea food with veggies in a soy sauce. Rice in abundance, Kona beer to refresh. Good price, reasonable, what can you expect more?

We arrive to the Waikoloa area and this was our first meal here. Good thai food and spices. Service a bit slow but not prohibitive.

This is one of the better places at Queens market place. Food was very very nice and the prices are far less than we'd expected, considering the prices elsewhere. Menu was very good, and server was very attentive. Certainly recommend this!

We ran across this place quite by accident. It was just a few miles from our hotel. Pad Thai was very good.

We went here on our last night in Kona. I wish we'd found this little gem earlier in our visit to the big island because I would have loved to have eaten more than one meal here! The pad Thai was very good as were or appetizers and my husband's dish. Very close to our hotel at the Hilton Waikoloa... More
