Fantastic spot. Staff and owners made us feel like family. We ordered Thai iced tea, mango sticky rice, pad thai, red curry with pumpkin and even asked them to cook us the same spicy pork soup they were eating, which was not on the menu. They oblidged my obnoxious request. It was incredible and if I lived close, I would go there once a week and request the secret off-the-menu item. There are a couple of tables for seating, but it looks like most of their business is structured for quick pick up. Prices were very reasonable and food was piping hot. Owner even brought out some dessert for us to try that was straight from Thailand. She told us about how important sourcing local ingredients is for her cooking and that they have a booth at the Waimea Saturday farmers market. Nice to see family restaurants on island thriving!

I’m not sure what the bad reviews are about. The owner is a wonderful person inside and out. The food is oh so fresh!! The atmosphere is amazing.

Gigantic portions! Pad see ew was different from what I’m used to (thinner noodles) but very tasty. Didn’t have egg so I think it was vegan?? Green curry was surprisingly flavorful and tofu was excellent. Papaya salad was also very good and fresh. The avocado I got with it was soooo creamy!!!

I love, love, love how Ratana's is a super small hole in the wall place that cranks out super fresh, super hot foods. We had a party of 7 asks we took up half of the restaurant. Needless to say the inside is small, but the dishes are BIG! Let me preface by saying that pretty much all dishes are accompanied by rice (mixed white and some other type I'm not familiar with). We ended up ordering shrimp Panang curry ($11). While it was a creamy, flavorful dish, I think it could've used a bit more coconut and peanut butter in the curry itself. Either that or the Panang Curry was diluted by the rice bowl it was mixed in with. Or maybe it was style of Thai cooking I'm not used to. We also decided on chicken Pad Se Ew ($10). However instead of wide rice noodles, Pad Thai style noodles and was more like pad Thai. Our last entree was a spicy shrimp (are huge) papaya salad ($10). This dish was by far the best item here for me. It has all the properties of what a papaya should have. The spicy, salty, slightly sweet, limey acid added to the home grown fresh, crunchy papaya was excellent. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MENU ITEM. What I was really excited to try was sticky mango rice dessert, but by the time we finished the food we were beyond stuffed. I really like this place. The value is incredible, and I absolutely recommend Ratana's. I just wish some of the entree flavors were a bit bolder.

The food was fresh , delicious and amazing! After our meal the owner of the restaurant insisted on cutting up our white pineapple we bought at the farmers market, so we could eat it at the beach. They went the extra yard. Eat here ! It’s a take out place but there are a couple tables.

What a quaint place for a quick stopover lunch with great vegan options for plant-based travelers and locals alike. I really enjoyed the green papaya, summer rolls and see ew noodles

The new owners of Ratana’s green papaya salad are doing a great job! This is the chicken pad Thai, beautiful!
