Healthy looking Thai food? Count me in! Looking at the menu, Tina had some really interesting dishes, and I heard Tina uses the freshest ingredients! It's located next to  on the "strip" in Downtown where a line of shop and restaurants are located. Parking is difficult to find on the strip during busy hours (around 11am - 3pm?) especially during the weekend. There are lots of street parking nearby but may require a bit of a walk. I chose the most talked about item on the menu: the Thai pizza. I got it with chicken which contained red curry mixed with shredded chicken, pumpkin, spinach and cheese. I didn't realize how BIG this dish was until I went and picked up my order which contained TWO medium sized takeout boxes. I thought they had thrown me an extra something for free... but NOPE. The Thai pizza took up two entire boxes for a cheap price of $15 (as shown in my picture). That's crazy! This is definitely, definitely a two person meal. I thought it was a really unique dish. I could taste the flavor of the curry and pumpkin with all the cheese. The ingredients used were definitely fresh.  But it seemed a bit... bland...? The chicken that was mixed into the dish tasted bland and only certain parts would taste really flavorful. I thought it was super weird. I added a bit of pepper and mushroom seasoning for my second meal with it and definitely had no complaints afterwards. This is the first time I've ever felt conflicted on my rating LOL. It was in between a 3.5 and 4 because of the flavor... Some parts would taste delicious with the seasoning mixed nicely while other parts would taste really bland. The lady who helped me talked story with me and was really nice, so 4 it is! Recommended for something different than the usual Thai styled foods. I do want to try Tina's other creations since she has a variety of unique dishes.
Such a unique and delicious Thai restaurant! I love that she utilizes local ingredients and gets creative. I live in San Francisco and haven't found Thai this good back home. Plus super generous portions!
Tina's Garden Cafe is the reason I gained 5 pounds living in Hilo even while biking like mad. The food is so delish I would eat the entire entree even knowing I should save half for lunch the next day. I had to ration myself after a while and only go once a week.
