The best Thai cuisine in Honolulu

With three locations to choose from (the original one being in the McCully Shopping Center), Phuket Thai holds the lock and key to Thai-island cuisine.  I’ve dined only at the restaurant near Ward (on Kamake’e Street), but it remains my Thai restaurant of choice because the atmosphere is so comfortable and classy and the food is always tasty and satisfying.

My favorite dishes have to be the “phuket stuffed chicken wings” (how they deboned the wings and stuffed it with veggies I still don’t know), the curries (”panang” is my personal favorite), and the “thai apple banana.”  YUM!  I’ve been to Phuket Thai at least three times this past year and I always leave full and happy.
