Even though they change ownership , food still acceptable

I have been dinning at this place since 1993 and used to be one of my favorites when the owner Teal used to own it. A couple of years back she decided to sell nd new owners transformed it to be a nice looking one, food is not as good as before but it is very comparable, the prices still... read more

Thai Pepper raises the bar for ambience, taste, and superb friendly service. Business lunches, Couples night out, or family gatherings, Thai Pepper is the Blue Ribbon Choice! I have introduced several friends to Thai Pepper, and they consider it their regular place now! Tom Yum Soup is different than the more conventional Thai restaurants, but it is worth trying! The...

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 but not smothering. Food... 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
