“The little kitchen that could”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

This is a small family operation that hangs on by the skin of their teeth for 3 months when 40,000 students leave Michigan State for the summer. Not gourmet Thai, but consistently good and popular with the neighborhood locals.

“Good and Fast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Thai Kitchen has very quick service on weeknights. This is a great place to grab dinner if your day got too busy and you just don't want to cook your own meal. Food is good and healthy. The service is good. The owner is not a warm person, very curt. Now that she recognizes us she greets us with a smile and knows our usual choices.

“Good Thai at a Good Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2010

Thai Kitchen is a solid Thai place but not a great one. The menu is somewhat limited but quite reasonably priced for lunch. Service can be spotty.

“Just an average Thai Restaurant with a limited menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2010

I read previous reviews and since I was away on business visited this restaurant and was surprised by the limited menu and lack of genuine flavor/spice usually present in Thai Food. If you're from the east coast and used to good Thai this is definetly not the place to visit. Very disappointed. I've had Thai in over 20 states and this is on my least favorite list.
