Do not assume all Thai food is good -- this place is so disappointing: the food is not good, the atmosphere is typical strip-mall. I went twice, thinking perhaps I just ordered the wrong thing -- a mistake.

The food at Wanpen is always outstanding. Fresh vegetables, meats, soups, and noodles with luscious sauces. Not much to look at - don't expect anything fancy. The food is the star here - Tom Yum Gai soup, Pad Thai, vegetable LoMein, hot chicken wings, all...More

We have been customers of Wanpen for many years and have to say that it is the best Thai we have eaten. It is the standard by which we judge other Thai restaurants. We believe it to be authentic and an excellent value. As others...More
