Love this place. I usually order take out. Some nights it might take 45 minutes to have it ready... worth the wait!

Thai food is usually pretty good or Pretty bad. Hot Pepper Thai food is awesome. The best in Waterford, hands down. The levels of spicy are right on target. I prefer mild or medium depending on how spicy I feel. This is mainly a take out restaurant as the dine in area is pretty small but the service is prompt.... More

There are a lot of fancy shmancy Thai places around but this one has the most authentic and delicious Thai Curry. Being owned and operated by a man from Thailand makes all the difference in getting things to taste as they should. I highly recommend the Green Curry. They are opening a new one in Clarkston soon as well.

Always enjoy eating at the Hot Pepper Thai Restaurant, the Chicken Pad Thai is to die for, order it a little spicy and the flavors are wonderful. Staff is friendly and service is quick

Great place for Thai food and also sushi!! We usually will get some sushi and split a dinner! Their Tom-yum soup is excellent there as well as all the food we've gotten! Clean, but not decorated the best! They do lots of carry out orders! Great food, we diffently recommend you try it!

Food is fresh, good portions, fabulous flavor. Restaurant seats approximately 50. Very tight quarters. Long wait for carry out approximately 25 minutes. Call ahead.

I have been to many Thai restaurants around town and this is a little gem! The food is super tasty and the staff is always friendly. If you're ordering a carry out, expect at least an hour wait.

We've never had anything but wonderful food. We've never eaten there, always get a carry out. There are not a lot of tables and always seems very busy when we pick up our food.
