Opal Thai

This small restaurant started off as a food truck but had to expand in order to keep up with its ever-growing band of loyal customers. While serving delicious Thai food – tom kha soup, green curry, and drunken noodles – the owners are friendly, and they love to help customers pick the right dish based on the client's flavor preferences.


The cuisine of Oahu has naturally been influenced by its surroundings – seafood, therefore, plays a large part in the local cuisine, complemented by excellent roast meats (the traditional kalua pork should not be missed), as well as by daring Asian influences. Dishes are served with a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables including the local root vegetable taro, which is usually mashed to turn poi, a staple in the Hawaiian cuisine.
