When you’re craving curry, Noi Thai Cuisine provides the perfect oasis in which to enjoy them. According to PR and marketing director Mona Wood-Sword, the upscale Thai eatery has a variety of delicious curries — ranging from mild to spicy — that are sure to please.
“From a rich Bangkok-style red curry to a green curry wagyu beef, yellow crab curry, Phuket panang curry, massaman lamb curry and more, we have something for every curry lover out there,” Wood-Sword confirms.
Noi Thai’s Red Curry Roast Duck ($37) is an especially popular choice. This flavorful curry is enhanced with Thai basil, grapes, fresh and local pineapple and lychee to achieve a multi-layered taste of sweet, salty and spicy. It’s a dish that’s pleasing to both the palate and the eye.
“Presentation is key,” Wood-Sword says. “The roast duck is brought to the table in a jar with Applewood smoke and herbs to enhance its flavor. When the jar is opened and the duck is placed on our guest’s plate with the red curry, the aroma is heavenly.”
Additional curry is then poured over the dish, which is served with the restaurant’s popular pineapple rice and an elegant carving that completes the ultimate fine-dining experience.
Wood-Sword encourages customers to check out Noi Thai Cuisine for lunch, happy hour or dinner.
“We have lunch specials daily from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., starting at only $10.95,” she says. “Happy hour is daily at our bar on the lanai; we feature $5 Singha beer and $8 wine and cocktails, plus pupu specials from $7.”
The Royal Hawaiian Center restaurant also is the ideal spot for special events.
“We have two elegantly appointed private rooms for eight to 10 people, but larger parties may also reserve sections of the restaurant to accommodate their guests,” Wood-Sword says. “Please contact us for your next event — your guests will truly be wowed by our food, decor and service.”
