Matt Anderson's Take
Aloha Thai Food is a food truck in Haleiwa that serves up some pretty tasty Thai food. I'm not Thai food expert but I really enjoyed what I ate here. The Pad Thai Chicken was my favorite with excellent noodles and is probably a good choice if you don't eat a lot of Thai food.

The Chicken Larb was also quite tasty and flavorful. It's sort of like chicken lettuce wraps and got even better with hot sauce on it. The other dish I tried was the Red Curry with chicken. It was quite good with a nice coconut flavor in the curry sauce. Good, but the other two dishes I had were far superior.

The prices here seem fairly reasonable to me with a dish like the Pad Thai Chicken going for $9 or so. Toss in a canned beverage or bottle of water and you could be out the door for under $12 easily. Not a massive deal, but more than fair to me.

The only negative issue I have is with all of the flies. I've seen worse with other trucks around this area, but it was still annoying with several flies all over the place. Would be nice if something was done about that. Of course, you could just get your food and go eat it in your car or some other place and avoid the fly issue completely.

The overall quality of the food is pretty good. But I find them to be on the sweet side. I like my curry on the thin and light side and their curry is thicker and heavier.

Aloha Thai Food is a food truck located near the iconic Haleiwa Bridge, across from Haleiwa Joe's. Not easily visible, you'll need to search for the truck since it's tucked away in the back of the parking lot.

We ordered the red curry chicken, larb, and chicken pad Thai. I found the curry in the curry chicken to be quite tasty and flavorful. Enjoyed it over the rice. The larb was good but could have been tangier in my opinion. It had a subtle flavor, but it was still good. My favorite dish was the chicken pad, Thai. Very good flavor - noodles were perfect. Would order it again.

My two complaints about Aloha Thai Food was the inordinate amount of flies buzzing around our food as we ate at their umbrella tables. Although this is a problem at a lot of food trucks, it's still quite annoying. My other complaint - actually it was a disappointment - was that they used Chinese long grain rice instead of jasmine rice. I mean, c'mon! It's Thai food - where's the jasmine rice?

The cook / order taker spoke broken English, but we were able to communicate fine. The truck itself appeared clean, but there is a screen mesh that keeps the flies out and it's difficult to see what the kitchen looked like.

Aloha Thai Food is an acceptable food truck, but if you're looking for a good Thai restaurant experience in Haleiwa, I'd recommend checking out Opal Thai.
