Goodbye Tribe Cafe, Goodbye Tuk Tuk Thai, Hello Sala Dang

New signs for Tuk Tuk Thai at the former stomping ground of Tribe Cafe. 
Update 02/15 - Tuk Tuk Thai moved to Kokomo Road, across from Colleen's, in the former location of North Shore Cafe (or Spice n Rice). It is NO longer in the schoolbus! It also has a NEW NAME: Sala Dang. Scroll down for the new menu.

Tuk Tuk Thai just opened at the Haiku Cannery (the one at Haiku Road and Kokomo) in the school bus formerly operated by Tribe (which used to be Cafe Prana Nui).

Tuk Tuk means taxi cab in Thai, which is kind of like a school bus. 

Open from 11 am to 7 pm currently, but the days and hours are subject to change as they figure out when to stay open. 

Same seating as at Tribe, with plastic bags filled with water to weigh the umbrellas down.

Pad Thai to go - always a good safe bet when trying a new Thai restaurant. 

Menu at Tuk Tuk Thai - scroll down to see the new menu of Sala Dang, formerly Tuk Tuk Thai.
Update: I stopped by again 9/4/12 and talked with Duang. She said it's just her and her sister, Dang. Remember, these are Thai names. 

Their hours are now firm, but flexible: Mon-Sat 11-7 but sometimes they close at 6 pm or 6:45 pm if the food runs out. They make specials and if they sell out, they don't want to hang out. Just like a food truck. On Sundays they are open 11-4 pm but sometimes longer. They also have a phone number, so you can call them to make sure they are there: 808-463-4166.

Update: 2/10/15: I'm not sure of their new hours at Sala Dang, but this is the new menu. Phone number is still the same. I used to love the food at their schoolbus location, and I'm looking forward to trying their food now that they have moved.
