REVIEW – Bangkok Happy Bowl: Thai Bistro and Bar – Koloa, Kauai

Scroll down to content

Although I didn’t get any video footage of the food from here (Thats why it’s not in the vlog), it was one of the best food I’ve had on this trip so I had to do a review.

It’s located in the Poipu Shopping Village that also features other cool shops and dining options, including Papalani Gelato.

Like I said earlier the taste overall was good and that’s why it was one of the best meals I’ve had on this trip. With Thai food, it can be a hit or miss with me depending on the level of sweetness and how much flavour you really put in. With Happy Bowl, they got the perfect mix of flavour and texture to give the right taste.

The Gyoza was the best thing I ate there followed by the pad Thai and Thai iced tea. My least favourite has to be the Tofu Tod, but it was still decent.

With respect to price it was definitely on the pricey side of the spectrum. Even though it tasted great, the price was still pretty ridiculous. Each main dish came up to $16.95 each while the cheapest item ordered was the Thai Iced tea at $4.95. You can check out the full menu here, and keep in mind they do have vegan dishes including the picture above and below.

The service was pretty good as well, they were polite and pretty fast with everything. They also were accommodating and good with assisting us on options.



As mentioned earlier, the restaurant is located at a shopping plaza, but it is located on one corner of the mall to give more space and ways of entering and leaving the venue. As mentioned in the name of the restaurant and seen here, they also do sushi but the overall venue is very nice with a mix of different cultures, including some western influences.

My overall recommendation for Bangkok Happy Bowl is to keep up with what they are doing but hopefully add more vegetarian appetizers and maybe incorporate special deals when you purchase a signature dish or have cheaper alternatives.
