A little dated, but very good food at reasonable prices

I live in town, and with only a few restaurants, have eaten here often. It's obviously not a chain - it's small,and owned and run by local residents. The decor is very kitchy, with buddha, little statues of dancing Thai princesses, and for some reason CDs hanging from the ceiling. But if you can... read more

Just updating the listing. Big "For Lease" sign in the window for awhile. Thai Smile may be the next best thing if you don't mind eating out of Styrofoam containers.

Saturday 9/5 I arrived at 12:26pm, I ordered a take out order, I was told it would be 15 minutes, I waited in my vehicle after 10 minutes I went back inside. I waited 25 minutes which was 10 minutes past the time I was told order would be ready, I then asked the employee if my order was almost... More

This Thai food is better than any other restaurant in this area. I love noodle and curry dishes. The problems is she is closing this restaurant end of September. If you did not eat there, you better hurry up.

I have eaten at Wanpen many times over the past year and I have never been disappointed. There's nothing fancy about the interior of the restaurant, however it is fixed up in Thai decor. I have gotten many different dishes but the curries are my favorite. Mrs. Wan Pen fixes everything herself and is very friendly. The two things that... More

I enjoy the hot tea, and almost any dish they have, it is prepared fresh and the portions are quite generous

Don't expect a buffet like the younger crowd is used to, but expect one of the best dinners that you have had with Thai. Get the egg roll, its about as big as your wrist as well as the hotsour and egg drop soup. This last visit I had the General Tso's hot and it was grade A perfect! Not... More

My husband and I are big fans of this place. It has both Thai and Chinese foods. I believe the owner is Chinese, but is a certified Thai chef. Prices are very reasonable, and the portions are generous. I ordered Pad Thai with tofu. It came with soup, an egg roll, fried or steamed rice, and hot or iced tea.... More

Looking for a spot for a late lunch and decided on Wanpen. Two of us had soup. I had the Thai noodle soup Tom Yum and the someone had the Non-noodle version. Both were excellent and perfectly spiced. Usually I like to add condiments, but this hit the right level from the start. Two others had Pad Thai and a... More
