Favorite Thai carry out!

We've never had anything but wonderful food. We've never eaten there, always get a carry out. There are not a lot of tables and always seems very busy when we pick up our food.

One of my friends and I would go to this restaurant on a fairly regular basis for lunch. The food was very good and they gave you a free cup of soup with your lunch. I should have known that it would be a different scenario when I noticed the absence of the oriental cooks. The service was poor and... More

I have been getting carry out from Hot Pepper Thai since they opened. Always large portions, freshly prepared and really good food. Try the specials too.

The decor is nothing to brag about but the food is. Love the spicy garlic sauce in the Pad Prik. Tom Yum soup is first rate. Kitchen takes a while when they have lots of carry out orders but worth the wait.

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
