We had a good time. The service was great. We weee allowed to do family style, sharing the entrees. We had a curry, pad thai, and a cashew chicken. My favorite was the pangang curry.

Thank you for your comments and we too love our "seasonal" Mango Curry... best part about it is that it's locally grown and hand picked here in Kailua-Kona.

Krua Thai Cuisine had a nice decor and easy parking. We received excellent service from Cindy. Spring rolls, fried rice, and curry with jasmine rice were all super delicious. I look forward to eating at Krua again soon.
