“Very interesting combo of spicy and sweet.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The food is absolutely delicious. I eat there all the time for lunch and I have never been disappointed. The decorum could use some updating but don't let that turn you away. I've never been to Thailand but this food makes me want to visit.

“Best Thai food in KC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

We had a great Thai lunch here. We started with four different appetizers that were all yummy, followed by soup and salads. The server was friendly and knew her stuff. I can not eat onion, and she made sure everything was cooked to order. I thought the medium food seemed hot. I will stick with mild. Excellent pad Thai noodles, red curry, and king and Ann chicken. I will come back soon!

“No better Thai food in KCMO!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

If there is better Thai food in Kansas City, please let me know because the Thai Place is the best we've found in many years of searching!

I love the Volcano soup with seafood and the customary Thai plates are very good as well.

If the weather is nice, eating outside in Westport provides some entertaining people watching.

The Thai Place's serving staff are ALWAYS friendly.

If you have not been here, so soon and you will find yourself going often!

Enjoy!

“Thai in KC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

If you are looking for authentic Thai cuisine in a quiet and beautiful location, look no farther than Thai Place. The menu has diverse options. I have sampled their noodle dishes as well as a vegetable stir fry with shrimp. The flavors were amazing. The choices include mild to extra hot varieties. On beautiful evenings, outdoor dining is available.
One drawback: parking is not always easy to find, so arrive early and enjoy a great meal.

“Always good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Best Thai food in KC. Of course, I can't think of too many other places. Westport location is nice and service is always very friendly. Food is consisently good. I'm even pleased on the rare occassion I stray from basic Pad Thai.
