Really was excited about dining at Noi Thai Cuisine.  I had seen photographs of the food and it looked incredible.  We stopped in for lunch and I was blown away by the beauty of the restaurant.  So classy, calm and inviting inside.  While the inside was beautiful we opted to sit outside on the terrace on a perfect Hawaii afternoon.  Our waiter Matt was professional and pleasant.  He explained a few dishes and the Chef's Recommendations.  After getting our drinks and ordering a complimentary soup dish was served.  Chicken Soup with Cabbage.  Very light and refreshing surprise.  We started with the Fresh Rolls ($10.50) that were filled with Shrimp, Pork and Vegetables.  Served with Peanut Sauce.  The presentation was very nice and the rolls were "fresh".  This was a nice light start to our meal.  Next up was the Pad Thai ($20.95) with Chicken.  Wow..what an incredible presentation.  The large Banana Leaf Blossom and webbed egg gave this dish the wow factor.  They use a thicker noodle than most Pad Thai's and the flavor of this dish is very mild.  Good but not great.  Next up was the Chef Recommended Crispy Garlic Chicken ($23.95).  Again a "wow" presentation.  The domed cover was filled with steam when our waiter unveiled the chicken.  Flavor was again ok but not great.  Reminded me of the Orange Chicken you can get at Panda Express for a fraction of the price.  The Yellow Curry with Crab ($35.00) was expensive and we had to pay an extra $4 for Sticky Rice as Jasmine Rice is offered with the dish.  I liked the flavor of this dish but not the price.  I loved the presentation of the food at Noi but only liked the flavors.  Definitely want to get back here again and try a few more dishes.  Everything on the menu looks so good.
