Very Good Food and Service

Thai Pepper on Alabama west of Shepard has been there a long time. The old house does not offer a lot of tables and parking is very limited. The menu is varied, easy to understand and read and the offerings cover most of the Thai dishes you would want to find. Service is attentive and pleasant... read more

My friend and I went to dinner there before a concert we were attending. She had been before and really liked it. I was very pleased with everything I had . I had Tom Kha Gai for the soup followed by Thai Pepper Soft shell crab on the Chefs special menu accompanied by an ice cold chang beer. I loved... More

Aroma from outdoors lured us to try this restaurant, and we weren't disappointed with the food. Not as many spice levels as other Thai restaurants we have been to but great flavors. Waitress could have been more attentive. After they brought our check and we had paid, they realized they forgot to charge us for two drinks, so they voided... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. I was really surprised when I walked in this restaurant at how nice it is. It has great ambiance and it's very clean and decorated really cute. The menu has a good variety of Thai dishes plus some unique variations. They have the best peanut sauce that I've ever tasted. I recommend the... More

Good food but a bit expensive and unfortunately no delivery. The specials are different and taste good. Would definitely visit again.

We tried this place on a whim. We were hungry and went in there expecting some good food. I wasn't sure if it was just because the food I picked was spicey, but I honestly didn't think it tasted that great. The service wasn't good either. The waiter didn't come and check on us but once before us asking for... More

Unfortunately, this restaurant recently changed ownership and/or management, and the food and service has changed for the worse. My family has been visiting Thai Pepper for at least twenty years, and we sadly said goodbye to one of our favorite restaurants after our last dining experience there. Neither of the two very attentive waiters who have been serving us for... More

I used to frequent this place at lunch, and always had pretty good experiences, particularly enjoying the triple spicy fish. It's been about a year since I've been to the place, and thought my old lunch fav sounded good for dinner last night. My first warning that things might not be the same was the empty restaurant (literally, one other... More
