Wow. It’s hard to write a review for a dining experience that is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. Opel is a phenomenal host and a master in fusing personal and culinary experience. The entire staff - especially his son Lio - is incredibly hospitable and friendly, always making sure your experience is catered to how you want to feel and what you’d like to taste. It is heaven for any adventurous (or not) eater. Easily the best Thai food I’ve ever had, and also some of the best service you could imagine. If we lived on the island, we’d come here every opportunity available.
If you are open minded to an experience, come here.
My friends and I that came here are not at all Thai connoisseurs. We scanned over the menu while having conversation, and eventually Opal came over and sat down, introduced himself, and joked with us a little.
Apparently it is the thing he does, but we didn't actually place an order. He asked what we liked and make accordingly, including a drunken noodle plate with both shrimp and chicken, as I don't like shrimp.
The staff was extremely friendly, and we had a fantastic time with fantastic food.
The price was absolutely worth it and it seemed reasonable as well, and we'll be going back. I'll be bringing some other friends too. Honestly, we were so busy enjoying ourselves, I didn't remember to get any more pictures.
Please support this local business and have yourself a night out.
You won't regret it.
The absolute best Thai place I've ever gone to. Opal is amazing. He asks what type of thai food you like, any diet restrictions and just like that you have delicious food on your table. Every time we are in Oahu, we make sure to go here to eat. It's an experience you must have while you're in Oahu. I think I've recommended this to pretty much everyone I know that will be travelling to Oahu.
I wish I could give opal thais more than 5 stars. This place is excellent. Opal, the owner, is a blast to be around. The food is incredible. The employees are engaging. Opal runs a tight ship and it shows.
Best Thai food! One of a kind experience. Opal really went above and beyond. He asked us some questions and then started making our food based on what we told him. All the food came out AMAZING! Even the food catered to the kids. There was a good variety of dishes. We had some leftovers (but not much because we kept eating LOL). $280 for all that food, tip, and some drinks for 10 people was actually inexpensive. Definitely coming back!
