Serves meat, vegan options available. Upscale Thai food in the middle of Waikiki's main strip. Offers a separate vegetarian menu, and servers are trained to make any modifications needed. Try the yellow curry and tom kah soup. Open Mon-Sun 11:00am-10:00pm.

Solid Thai in Waikiki

Located on the main strip in Waikiki, returned multiple times to enjoy the quality food, good service with minimal waiting time for food to be served. Multiple options. The yellow curry was especially well done. Slightly pricey.

Delicious Thai

Large vegetarian menu and modifications can be made for the regular menu. The kids menu was all meat but they modified upon request. The yellow curry was fantastic!

Super delicious!

Firstly, our waiter was fantastic and extremely helpful. He advised us that anything on the vegetarian menu was actually suitable for vegans too, he also showed us which options on the regular menu could be adapted to suit us.
We had vegetable rolls to start with an absolutely delicious peanut sauce. Then I had a yellow curry and my Fiancé had drunken Noodles. I had spice level 1, he had 2.
Be aware that 2 definitely had a kick to it! I absolutely adored my meal, best I've had so far in Waikiki!

Pros: Lots of options , Delicious food, Helpful staff

Great vegan pad Thai

I ordered a pad Thai and the restaurant was very accommodating - removed egg from the dish and also allowed me to make other modifications like removing peanuts and making the sauce gluten free. The milks was a tad spicy for me but overall great experience!

Great veg options at Thai Restaurant

Had Tom Kha Soup and Black Noodles (Pad See-Ew) - both delicious. Also Sticky Black Rice Pudding for dessert. Vegetables in Soup were perfectly cooked - still needed a good bite, but not raw tasting. Wonderful flavor!

Pros: Separate section of menu for vegetarian items, Waiter knowledgeable about ingredients/allergens, Attractive setting, attentive waitstaff

Cons: Music was slow oldies, didn’t fit upscale Thai , Bathroom needed some serious deep cleaning

Say Yes to NoI

This that I good is more pricey for a reason. The produce is fresh, the service is great, the presentation is excellent and the tofu isn’t all that weird, deep-fried, triangle business one is used to seeing at a Thai restaurant. Also, the sangria is tasty! #Veganuary

Pros: Their “vegetarian” menu is basically vegan , Sit at the bar without reservations , Great service

Cons: A bit pricey

Excellent High End Thai

Every plate was bar none delicious. The vegetarian menu is in the back with many different options. I ordered the Swimming Rama which consisted of plentiful large cubes of stir-fried tofu on a large bed of spinach in a peanut sauce. The mixed vegetables tofu dish was very flavorful with perfectly stir-fried vegetables. Probably one of the best mixed vegetables plates I’ve ever ordered. The Drunkin Noodles were also excellent. The veggie spring roll appetizer was fresh with that same delicious peanut sauce.

The service was friendly and professional. The food was served quickly.

Pros: Excellent food, Excellent service, Fresh

Cons: The mango Mohita-a bit sweet but still good

Noi Thai

I found the vegan options to be delicious. I was also incredibly happy that they listened to me when I asked for my food to be prepared extra spicy. I don't mess around with bland food!!!

My partner and I ordered a vegan version of the tom yum appetizer to share and I ordered a vegan curry, which he and I enjoyed. Both dishes were beautiful and flavored very well. I'd definitely eat at Noi Thai again!

Yummy noodles

I decided to give here a try after seeing other reviews and I was supper happy with the food. They have a vegetarian menu, which if it’s not already vegan can be made vegan. Out waiter was super helpful and confirmed with the kitchen any question I may have had. I got the drunken noodles and it was super yummy. They even have a spice level you can ask for your noodles which was great! They even had a note stating my food allergy on my plate. The food and service was amazing. I would definitely go back again!

Overall Great Experience

I was craving Thai food and ended up deciding on Noi based on other reviews. I was super excited to see that they have a separate vegetarian menu, and I throughly enjoyed the cashew nut tofu. With drinks and an appetizer, the bill was a little high but that was expected. If you’re looking for other Thai options, I’m sure you could find something cheaper. Overall, my non-vegan boyfriend and I had a great date night and enjoyed the experience at Noi.

Pros: Vegetarian menu, Taste amazing, Great environment

Cons: Expensive
