We got the crispy spring rolls, pad Thai with chicken and green curry with chicken. Quick service. Excellent Thai food. I got my meal medium spicy and it was just right. It had some kick and I enjoyed every bit of it. My husband got hot and it was as spicy as he likes it. Great flavor. They know how... More

Great Lunch special for $10. Excellent Thai food with great service. Hostess / Owner was very friendly and shared fruits / spices to take. Overall our best meal in our 10 day Hawaii trip. Our family really enjoyed the food and hospitality!

This is the best Thai food I've ever had. It tasted pretty much like my favorite place at home but something about it made it better. It was very fresh. The waitresses went above and beyond to help us.

The food is good and fresh. I ordered my panang curry medium and it hardly had any spicy. Otherwise it's good and fast.

We noticed Krua in the way out of town and decided to try it for lunch. The interior is beautiful and we were welcomed (what a concept). We met Nik, the owner, and she was dedicated to serving our needs. Lunch was fabulous. I had Larb and my wife had a lunch special of veggies in a garlic sauce. Fabulous.... More

We ate here a few years ago. I did not remember anything negative about this place. My BW wanted the Drunken Noodles and she loved that dish so much that it disappeared quickly. Our server was Rosina and I thought that she did a special job helping us. I enjoy food that is spicy but not enough to order Thai... More

My husband and I enjoyed the lunch special at this Thai restaurant. Best done chicken ever! Normally Thai restaurants overdo the chicken. This was so tender. We both had the drunken noodles. Not the best location and no view, but the food is what counts. Will definately be back!

15th year visiting Kailua Kona and always include Krua for a meal stop or two or three! Pad Thai is terrific but curries equally as good. Had lunch here three times during my ten night stay. Service may be a little slow sometimes but worth a little wait. Nice also that it's away from the touristy Alii drive.

Friendly, warm service. No alcohol but really good food. We frequently have lunch after market days and have never been disappointed. Our last lunch was Maseman Chicken Curry and it was the best I've had in Kona. I would increase their overall rating if I could have a cold Singha with my meal. Thai Orchid lets you bring your own.

Thank taipan2016
