The chicken eggplant was prepared well. Just the right amount of spice. Pad Thai was good too. Large portions. First time I ate Mango sticky rice and it won't be the last.

I live in Nuuanu so whenever I'm in the mood for something simple (but good) and quick, Bangkok Chef comes to mind. It's definitely a casual venue and sometimes the wait can be a bit long (especially if there are many phone orders that have called in ahead of you). Prices are very reasonable and the portions generous. You can... More

Ducked in as we were famished. Clean tidy and a rather unassuming place & the food was unexpectedly very nice. We had tom ka soup & green thai curry. Good taro pudding to polish off. Quite cheap to boot.

Great quality, price, prompt service. Love the Pad Thai and yummy Summer Rolls. Another favorite is Thai Green Curry which you can get with tofu or choice of chicken or shrimp. Very tasty! Unless you enjoy very spicy food, order mild or medium. Sticky rice is so tasty with meal. Jasmine rice is also good.

This is a fast food counter-pick up type of place. The seating is roomy and decent. I ordered Pad Thai, fish patties, summer rolls, and Thai ice tea. The fish patties were good, but other dishes were disappointing.

We were staying a few blocks from this restaurant, and our hosts recommended it. We were not disappointed! It's primarily a take-out place, and two dishes (Pad Thai and red chicken curry, plus brown rice) fed two of us for two dinners and a lunch for $20 and change. Good food, good value -- what more could you ask?

The food is good and tasty :) You can taste all the flavors and I have been told the flavors are authentic. The portions are good considering the prices and you will leave feeling satisfied. Have been going back to this place every 2-3 weeks. Their curry chicken is a hit with most of my friends. Their spring rolls are... More

We have been coming here for years and it never disappoints. Don't let the setting deter you from eating in this converted garage. We order several dishes and share family style. The stand out dishes are: pad Thai, crispy noodles, chicken wings, Penang curry, green curry, chicken cashew and shrimp and snow peas. All these dishes were fresh and made... More

We came here for some quick Thai before heading up to Mount Tantalus. We ate it on top while watching the Wakiki fireworks. It was the perfect food to bring with us. The dishes are pretty typical curry dishes, but it was so good. Their sticky rice is always on my mind now. Yummy. It isn't a fancy sit down... More
