Delicious

I love their Pad Thai with chicken. Tastes just like the restaurant I use to work at in my hometown of Tawas, MI. It's not bad priced either. But I would definitely go there more if it was on Groupon. 😊

I really love this restaurant. I eat here about once a week. I have never had a dish that I didn't like. I have noticed that the food is slightly better if you eat-in rather than carry-out. However, I would prefer carry-out here over any other thai restaurant. #6, #8 and the spring rolls are my favorites.

Always good, friendly and dependably delicious. The food is exactly as you would hope. Atmosphere is not good but that is not what I'm there for. If your looking for a romantic evening with a beautiful view you will be disappointed. It is one of our favorite places to go pick up food or just grab a dinner when we... More

This is our go to Thai restaurant once or twice a month. After a long week at work, I choose to take Friday off from cooking dinner so we bounce between Chinese, pizza and Thai. This is THE Thai restaurant that we go to. Fresh, tasty and the staff is very nice to boot. We have never eaten in, although... More

Not the best for dining in (very plain and small),but definitely the best food. We dine in/carry out twice a month and are never dissappointed. Only place we've found which will substitute peanut sauce in their chicken pad thai,love their peanut sauce!

Always have great food from here every time i've ordered. Have yet to find something I don't like on the menu. The vegetables are always fresh in every meal. The atmosphere isn't great, kind of reminds me of my grandmothers kitchen back in the early 80s but i normally get carry out from them. The service is decent, sometimes it... More

I have been getting carry out from Hot Pepper Thai since they opened. We eat there at least two times a month. Every single meal has been A+. You can dine in, but it is mainly set up as a carry out. This place is a gem.

The waitstaff was a little slow but the food was really good with very generous portions. My husband and I both really liked our dishes - his noodle based and mine fried rice based. We'll definitely go back.

There are several Thai places here but this one has the best food. The eating area is small and strictly functional, but the employees are pleasant. Wide variety of items, generous portions and the overall quality keep me coming back. They have been in that little plaza for years and I think a lot of people just drive by not... More
