We have been coming to This fine small "secret"restaurant for at least 10 years. We love the food, owners and ambience, but the great food keeps bringing us back. Plus, a little longer hours now ! We have tried most Thai places in Honolulu after finding Pae Thai but Keep coming back. It is still our favorite restaurant !

If you eat at Pae Thai be sure to sit by their little water piece with all it's weird miniature creatures and Christmas lights. I think I saw one of them wink at me but I may have been hallucinating since I was so hungry after doing hot yoga. The owner is pretty nice and she didn't mind customizing my... More

Average food if you're craving Thai food and you're in the area. You're better off driving to Siam Garden or Chiang Mai

The chicken curry was very tasty. The service was good. The prices were reasonable. My only wish is that they served wine.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Honolulu. It is authentically Thai and the people who run it are very warm and friendly. They want you to enjoy your meal and the whole experience. The menu is extensive, with all the Thai dishes you'd expect including the tasty green papaya salad. Any eggplant dish is exceptional as well as... More

We went out of our way to find a modest little Thai restaurant that has good food. We caught a cab from our hotel in Waikiki, and it was only a $13 fare to get there. The Pae Thai is a small little place on south King Street. Nothing overly fancy, with a little waterfall inside and Thai statues and... More

We read all the wonderful reviews and decided to have dinner at Pae Thai, and looked forward to it, We were warmly greeted and we loved the sweet little garden outside with the beautiful statue. But oh dear we must have chosen the wrong dishes. I chose Vegetarian and my meal tasted like a can of coconut milk had been... More

We had a really tasty lunch today. The papaya salad was excellent! We arrived 1/2 hour before closing and they welcomed us. Food was quickly cooked and delicious. They do not serve beer and told us to go to the corner gas station and bring it back. The staff thanked us over and over and had huge smiles the whole... More

I've been going to Pae Thai for nearly 20 years and absolutely love it. The most authentic Thai food on O'ahu with a friendly owner & staff. I also like the fact its BYOB and the prices are very fair.

Besides the wonderful and hospitable ambiance of this family run business we have found the food to be the best Thai we have ever tasted. We've been coming here for several years and never have we been disappointed. Our whole family uses this restaurant as the basis for judging all other Thai restaurants whenever we travel. We suggest the Sticky... More
