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.

One of my friends and I would go to this restaurant on a fairly regular basis for lunch. The food was very good and they gave you a free cup of soup with your lunch. I should have known that it would be a different scenario when I noticed the absence of the oriental cooks. The service was poor and... More

I have been getting carry out from Hot Pepper Thai since they opened. Always large portions, freshly prepared and really good food. Try the specials too.
