Ok, when it’s hot it’s hot! If you’re hungry for some really amazing and hot, Thai fusion cuisine, and you’re in the vicinity of Volcano, Hawaii, head on over to Thai Thai Bistro and Bar. How cool it is that you can get some of the most delicious hotter than hot food in the heart of a city that is located really close to a volcano. Some might say, “that’s hot!”

But if you don’t like spicy Thai food, don’t get all heated up. Their menu offers a variety of cooler to the taste Thai and western dishes and desserts to make everyone in your group happy. This unique hot spot (ok enough with the puns) is a family-owned restaurant that serves authentic Thai cuisine using the freshest produce sourced on the island.

Their mission is to make you happy so when you order, mention the level of heat you prefer in your Thai food.  Everyone’s tolerance to heat is different, so go down a notch. If you think that you are a five on a scale from one to ten, ten being the hottest, ask for a three or four. That said, make sure you have a drink nearby. Whether it is water, soda, or one of Thai Thai’s famous signature cocktails, it’s always a good idea to be prepared, just in case.

There is Asian decor everywhere like string lights, Asian-inspired artwork, and cheerful colorful decor. This will instantly get you in the mood for some really amazing food.  It gets busy, and sometimes you have to wait to get seated.
