A small authentic Thai restaurant. Plenty of indoor seating and parking is no issue. BYOB or they have tasty Thai tea and bottled water. Menu is simple and easy to understand. Nice decor with pictures of Thailand and Thai festivals.Chicken Satay was excellent, Papaya salad was great, Tom Yom Goong (shrimp) was the best we've had in the US. Pad Thai had a nice taste and portion was large. Very satisfied with the food and overall experience.Will return!

Absolutely terrible. Pad Thai was bland , almost watered down. The worst pad Thai I have ever experienced and I’ve tried at least 50 different spots. This one will hold the worst spot , and I will never attempt to eat the pad Thai. For the easy potstickers they were good, the pad Thai was not….

Food is always good here. Service always good too. Compared to some of the other Thai food places I have been too this place has a better panang curry. The peanut flavor with the coconut milk and Thai basil is very prominent in the soup. Love it

We were craving for Thai food and found this wonderful place with awesome appetizers and entrées and excellent service. Everything was so flavorful and fresh. The staff was very helpful and provided excellent service. We totally recommend this place to anyone looking for excellent Thai food in Oahu.

This is one of our favorite Thai food places to go to. We usually order the Thai basil chicken, Tom Yum soup, Yen Ta Fo, and fried chicken. All so ono! Price is right too! We go there at least once a week.

Best Thai food on the island. My wife and I have tried over a dozen Thai restaurants on Oahu, and no one beats Thai Cuisine Express.

After a hectic shopping trip at Sam's Club we wanted to take a break and came upon Waimalu SC. Since the Okazuya at Kabuki was closed we headed next door. Times have really changed in Hawaii. I didn't realize this restaurant didn't serve water, instead you need to buy bottled water for your consumption. Food: Their food was mediocre!! Pad Thai didn't have that tamarind taste like other places. The Pad Siew had a funky taste that I wasn't familiar with. This is the kicker...the fried chicken wings looked okay except there was a feather sticking out. This really grosses me says that this establishment doesn't wash their foods well. Service: Okay, it could be better. Prices: Inexpensive I'll pass when I'm in the area again, I'll try other eateries instead.

Amazing food. It's been really hard finding decent food since moving here and this was one of the best spots I've had here. Also the lady at the counter was the sweetest woman I've ever meet. Made my experience 10x better.

Business says in Yelp that they open until 10 o'clock but they don't tell you the kitchen close at 9 pm or when it's slow that they decide to close early and go home when they feel like it. Food is good, service is okay and minor operational procedures like closing early needs improvements. But the staff is friendly and nice and mean well to take care of you. They don't serve Thai/Lao sausage (sai-kok). Makes me sad.

Not sure if the management have changed but the pad thai that I used to order doesn't taste the same anymore. I usually get tofu or shrimp pad thai. I got the chicken pad thai this time. I always get MILD. The only spice that i'm getting is PEPPER lots of it. This is my go-to spot for comfort, quick, pad thai fix. But maybe not anymore :( I still like that they make it on the sweeter side but it was just too much pepper :( I always get thai tea here too. It's still really good though! It's pretty affordable though and you can easily order on the phone conveniently! I hope I just got a bad batch. Maybe it's time for me to find my new PAD THAI spot!

This is my mom's favorite restaurant located at Waimalu. Family ordered seafood fried rice, spring rolls, fried chicken wings, sweet and sour pork, long rice noodles and tom yam soup, everything were so delicious and tasty, most especially the fried rice. All foods were served really hot. Service was grear as well.Features: Customers and staff still wear mask indoor. You will be seated one to two tables apart. I guess depends on how many customers are dining in.

Best decently priced Thai food in Hawaii! Love this place! We used to live in Hawaii and have recently moved to California and yet still have to find a thai restaurant in Cali comparable to their taste. Highly recommended!

Order food from bite squad. The Calamari was shriveled and dry. The pad tai tasted odd and mainly like pork, and the papaya salad was more bitter than usual. I usually order from a different place not thought I would try something new. It was horrible except the spring rolls


I went in because of the reviews having a 4.6. I’m a very reasonable guy. I understand when restaurants have a number of customers coming in as well as take out orders; however, waiting 15 minutes for the waitress to take my order in my opinion is just over the top. Ok the food. The calamari was on point! Crispy, juicy, right on the money. The pad kee mow was bland . The chicken satay was ok. The chicken fried rice was ok, and the pineapple fried rice was ok. The best part was, when the waitress took my order, my food came out quick. Will I come back here again? No thank you.
