Noi Thai Ying Rosawan & Chef Akes Ahi Tuna Salad
One of Hawaii’s best Thai restaurants can be found in the Royal Hawaiian Center right next door to Forever 21 on the second floor. The decor is upscale and the food is authentic and presented in high style.
They have a master carver who carves everything from water melons to radishes to look like fine pieces of art on your plate. Joining us in the kitchen is the general manager Ying who helped translate for her executive chef Ake who is from. They made a delicious ahi salad with a zesty lime dressing.
