Hawaii Kai's New Restaurant Receives Good Reviews

Maile's Thai Bistro, in the Hawaii Kai Town Center, open a couple of months, has received good reviews from the community.

The family-style restaurant opened Dec. 19 and offers American and Thai cuisine. "I want to provide a menu that will accommodate everyone's tastes. Have customers who are not familiar with Thai food come in and still be able to have a dish that they'd be more familiar with, from steaks, filet mignon to sashimi," said Maile Sayarath.

The restaurant owner, Maile Sayarath has been working in the food industry since she was 16 years old. Being co-owner of Assagio's, she's always dreamed of opening her own restaurant.

In January, MetroMix Honolulu wrote that the Thai restaurant was already a local favorite, and the customers almost totally local Hawaii Kai residents. And reviews on Yelp also are very favorable. Prices range from $15 per person for lunch and from $35 for dinner, and they carry a large wine selection.

Hawaii Kai Businesses finding New Niches in Troubled Economy

According to the East Oahu Sun, Pacific Paws Doggy Resort & Spa owners are cultivating innovative niches that will hopefully ensure the resort's endurance during economic hardships.

The Middleton and McCullough families recently marked their first anniversary of ownership, after the spa's original owners sold the Hawaii Kai-based business to the families after only two months.

In preparation for the tough year ahead, Middleton says the spa, located in Koko Marina Center, is expanding on its services and discovering groundbreaking ways to serve clients. Pacific Paws introduced a puppy training session, which takes place every Tuesday night. In addition, launching sometime this quarter, will be outcall services, which will accommodate patrons who are traveling but don't wish to pull their dogs out of the house.

On top of grooming services and nutritional supplements, one of Pacific Paws' most popular services is its day care, which is called "working parent packages." With a 14-hour window for patrons to drop off and pick up their furry family members, between 6:30 in the morning and 8:30 at night, the packages offer 10, 20, 30 or 60 days of day care.

Read all about their business and what services they offer for your pet on the East Oahu Sun. Visit Pacific Paws at 7192 Kalanianaole Hwy #Q103, Honolulu 96825, 808-394-9663.
