Chao Phya Thai
When you enter Chao Phya Thai, you're greeted by air thick with the aromas of curry, coconut milk, and lemongrass. Chili-garlic sauce lends a fiery kick to sautéed local grass-fed Paniolo beef from Parker Ranch on The Big Island, fresh and local fish benefit from an assertive dash of ginger, and oyster sauce helps flavor an aromatic blend of stir-fried tofu, eggplant, and basil fresh from local markets. Noses may think they've gone all the way to Thailand, but they're slightly mistaken; although chefs work with traditional Thai recipes, they recreate the cuisine's distinctively vibrant flavors by using fresh, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Fresh brewed lemongrass tea and Thai iced tea help quench thirsts, and the BYOB restaurant also allows diners to bring their favorite bottles of beer or wine from home, with no corkage fee. Every weekend, live music entertains guests seated in the indoor dining area as well as those on the outdoor cafe. Open daily from 11am to 9pm.
