Taste The Rich History of Thailand at The Best Thai Food Restaurant in Hawaii, Kahului, Hawaii

Whether you’re new to Thai food and want to try something different or you’re a self-proclaimed Thai food expert, Thailand Cuisine in Maui has the most delicious and authentic Thai dishes in all of Hawaii.

What makes Thai cuisine so unique is how it came to be. With Chinese and Indian influences, Thai cuisine’s distinctness incorporates all five tastes: sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and spicy. Thai food has taken elements from other cuisines in the past, such as Persian and Arabian influences, and has married these elements into the unique flavor that is now Thai food.

Many Asian cuisines are elevated with a spicy component, and the same is true for Thai cuisine. Chilies were introduced to Thai cooking in the late 1600s by Portuguese missionaries who brought them over from South America, and they have been a major element in Thai dishes ever since. The Thai people were excellent at incorporating foreign elements into their own cooking, and they were masters at substituting ingredients in their dishes to make them uniquely Thai. As a substitute for ghee used in Indian dishes, Thai cooks replaced it with coconut oil, and coconut milk was substituted for dairy products. That’s why many Thai dishes contain that sweet coconut taste to balance out the spice level for your delicate palate.

Experience this rich history at Thailand Cuisine, where the staff is dedicated to serving the most authentic and mouthwatering dishes on the Hawaii islands. Try their specialty Kung Pao Chicken for a spicy kick or savor their vegetarian Ginger Coconut Tofu Soup at an affordably delicious price. Visit them at one of their two locations in Kihei or Maui to fall in love with Thai cuisine. Visit their website for more information and to view their vegetarian-friendly menu.
