Excellent Thai food and usually great service too.
I eat here as often as I can - i love this place (all KC locations). My favorite is the Sen Me Pad See Eau - but everything else has been great as well - especailly all the noodle dishes. A lot of fun w/ a group or even by yourself.
One of the best thai resturants I have ever eaten..
I love thai restuarants and consider this one the best. Service is great and I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a table. Great selection of menu items. Every dish that I have tried has been wonderful. Great place for a romantic dinner.
READ THE REVIEWS -- Best Thai food in Kansas City area.
Spent a couple of years in Seattle recently and became a Thai food afficianado. In fact, I was concerned that I might as well forget Thai food after returning to the area. That negativity disappeared once we tried the Thai Place. Several locations in Kansas City so don't limit yourself to this location only...try 119th & Quivira or for a real treat, Arun Thai Place at 7th and Grand Ave., downtown. Atmosphere is even better at these last 2 although I understand that the Santa Fe location is newly remodeled.
Now, back to the food. The seafood pad thai is our favorite...but we haven't really found anything we didn't like. Watch the seasoning...like all good Thai restaurants if you order it "hot" it will probably be too hot for most tastes. Most will do just fine with "mild". We like it medium and occasionally hot...depends on the dish. Another favorite is one of the salads...sadly I forget the name...it has beef in it and is really tasty and unusual. The service is great. Ambiance the best of any Asian restaurants around. Downtown location might even be called "romantic". Go on a Friday night.
If you are unsure...ask for help and take their recommendation. They know what they are talking about. Next to Mae Phim and Wild Ginger in Seattle, this is now our favorite Thai food!
Casual yet Romantic.
It's a wonderfull place for a romantic dinner, a family outing, or a large gathering. They even have separate halls with different ambience and decor that can be rented to private parties.
THE place for Thai.
By far the best Thai food in town. (And I've had it all.) It's just the location and interior design that leave much to be desired. Although, rumor has it, they've open a new location in in Westport.
Exceptional Thai food.
We have frequented almost every Thai Restaurant in town and the Thai Place is by far our favorite. Our criteria for the food is 1) exceptional flavor and 2) spicy. We generally will have the Chicken Galanga soup (medium to hot), which has exceptional flavor along with Phad Thai (hot). We generally get the food for takeout these days, since we have a small baby. She likes Phad Thai (mild). Occasionally, the level of heat is inconsistent so that if we request hot its mild and visa versa. We strongly recommend this restaurant to our friends, who in turn recommend it to friends they know. Its good Thai food!
