Thailand Cuisine Kahului, HI

Thailand Cuisine
70 E Kaahumanu Ave # C4
Kahului, HI

The outside and inside are really amazing, tons of Thai icons and statues. The first sip of the Thai Iced Tea was very creamy, almost too much cream, but I liked it. Since we were in Hawaii for my sister in law's wedding, I will be going to as many Thai restaurants I can, and I will be eating with my wife, which will add a whole other dimension, needless to say I am looking forward to this week! The table had an explanation of the origins of Thai food which my wife and I enjoyed reading.
It said: "The taste of Thai food comes mainly from the wide range of flavor ingredients. The blending of these ingredients contribute to the harmonious taste unique to each dish. In addition, Thai cooking uses a large variety of herbs and vegetables, regarded widely as health food. Fine Thai cooking begins with carefully selecting and using the right ingredients. The art of Thai cooking requires a good understanding of the ingredients; fresh herbs, vegetables, and spices."
We ordered a few different dishes, Chicken Yellow
Curry and Pork Fried Rice, but this fried rice had a Hawaiian twist, it came in a half pineapple! Unfortunately it looked much more delicious than it was. The yellow curry was pretty good, nothing to write home about, but thoroughly enjoyable, partly because we just landed in Hawaii 15 minutes before! I noticed that the Thailand version of old school MTV was playing on a 20 inch TV in the background, nice touch.
