“nice and spicy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2009

Amazing Thai food - made to order on the spicy level! It seems like the majority of people take the food to go - but the atmosphere of the place is really nice and arm. The prices are also really reasonable.

“oasis among chain resturants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2009

A gem among lubbock's countless chain restaurants. Can get busy during lunch and dinner time. Not a large dining area. Great place to pick up and take back home. Service is great and food is out of this world.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2009

Thai pepper was a staple for me while going to school in Lubbock. They have fantastic pad thai (medium) and the kool special was good as well. The service isn't the most attentive, but at least they're friendly.

“Bad. So bad I left halfway through!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2009

My fiance and I went to Thai Pepper after hearing rave reviews. What a mistake. Our wontons were still frozen in the middle, my noodles were rubbery in spots and hard in others, and the curry was simple inedible. We just paid and left after attempting to choke some of it down.

“thw best in Lubbock”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2009

The owners used to cook at Thai Thai on 50th....but the food tastes better, it's cleaner, and cheaper than any of the other 4 thai places in town.

Been eating here since they opened, it's like our own little backyard kitchen, we always end up here if we can't decide, plus its close to campus.
Pad thai is addictive... not authentic pad thai, this is a little sweeter, no lime or mix it yourself veggies/peanuts, but just as good. The secret is the tamarind sauce and sweet soy.
My favortie is still the rad na, with jalapenos and extra gravy.
All the soups and curries taste good.

Best thing about the place is they don't upcharge you if u wanna change the protein from beef to chicken or pork....and you can specify how hot u want the food. Personally I think the chicken is like cardboard...always go for the beef.
The free wonton chips is a nice touch, but they run out early. Don't forget to make your own dip at the sauce station in the back..a little fried garlic oil, some marinated jalapenos, soy and viola, ur own gourmet dip for chips

Always a long wait so avoid the crowd and go early or late...they do take a break between 3-5pm. Cut the staff some slack since they are a family place...mom and pop in the kitchen, kids in the front...they could jack up the price and hire more people, but they did not do that to customers.

LOL this is one of the few places we would actually come back to eat in Lubbock
