    Since we love Thai food, this is our favorite place to go. We always ask for Bun, but all of the waiters are friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The menu is extensive, and they will accommodate your wishes in any way they can. They will take back a dish if it is too hot or not to your liking. We highly recommend The Thai Place and they are even on Open Table!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/13/2012
    The food was really good, although - we asked for the Medium version of the dish we chose - and it was MUCH HOTTER than anticipated. We were not sure if they made a mistake in the kitchen or when she took our order. I love hot/spicy food, but this was over the top hot for what was supposed to be medium. Service was not bad. One problem - they came by every 5 minutes to top off our water glasses from the time we got there until our food arrived. (We are talking not even half empty) – And then they did not come back by our table for 20 minutes after delivering our food (when we were almost finished eating) to then refill our VERY EMPTY glasses. Not sure what happened there, but they were obviously not paying attention.

    I'm a big fan of Thai Place's food. Really love the King and Ann. Wine is affordable and they offer a nice selection. I was seated immediately in a great spot to watch the door waiting for my friends. Waiter was attentive and anticipated needs. Ambiance is comfortable and hard to leave! My only negative is the lack of parking in this Westport area, but Thai Place is worth it!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/22/2012
    Fabulous Thai Food! Timid palates beware: even the mild is quite warm. I'd normally order medium, but ordered mild on a tip from a friend--good call; it was perfect. A good tip for a group that wants to share dishes: order your dishes mild, then ask for the condiment tray (4 different hot condiments for even the most adventuresome at the table.)

    The green curry with shrimp was delicious. I ordered it hot... medium might have been a better option, but I don't mind a lot of spice.

    I went to dinner on a tuesday night and got the 2 for 1 Pad Thai Special. It was great and the portion size was huge. I am still eating left overs and they are just as good as they were Tuesday night. We also got the Egg rolls, which were very tasty but a bit greasy and oily. Was very happy to finally try this place.

    Dined on 9/1/2012
    First of all I have to say I really appreciated the chilled wine glasses and was impressed with the wine selection - surprised they offered a really good Oregon Pinot Gris at a very reasonable price! Food was very good, service was excellent. We ate kind of early (5:30) so there were plenty of people bringing in their children (not a huge fan) which is the only reason I didn't check "romantic." But the quality of the food is very good, the ambience is probably the best of all the area Thai Place restaurants, and I really liked the bar scene where we stayed after dinner. It's just some of the dishes are a little pricey. But hey it's Westport.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Although the food was alright, I cannot get over how rude our service was. Our waiter RUSHED us to order, then mysteriously disappeared only to reappear 30 minutes later with the check, not withstanding that we had full drinks and the waiter never asked if we needed anything else, drinks, dessert, coffee, anything. This made us feel unwelcome in the restaurant and are not inclined to ever return.

    Server was very attentive. Pad Thai was outstanding and so were the spring rolls. Hint, if you do not like hot, stick with mild. Medium was perfect for a someone that likes a little kick.

    We went to Thai Place for a late dinner date on a Wednesday night. We got there about 9:30. We were seated promptly. The service was very nice. He did take awhile to get our order but everything came out quickly once ordered. The Spicy Basil was good but the chicken was a little dry. My friend ordered Phad Thai (medium heat). He thought his food was too spicy for only being the next up from mild which was supposedly not spicy at all. I tasted his and I thought the heat was okay but the taste was a bit off. There was no hint of sweetness that usually comes in Phad Thai. It also had a weird flavor. I would have sent it back but he said it was good enough. We also had spring rolls were mediocre but the sauce tasty. Maybe it was the late night?

    This was our 2nd time here. My husband, who is unsure of Thai food went reluctantly; but since we had a good experience previously, agreed to go. I made an early reservation through Open Table, which the hostess seemed to disregard. My husband had Pad Thai and I had Sen Mee Phad Sea Eaw. Both were good. We were unsure of what hotness to order (We were thinking mild) and got no hotness. We observed an adjoining table ask to bring the condiments to season it themselves, so that is what we will do in the future. Waiter was pleasant, service attentive.

  • I ordered a roast duck dish.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/9/2012
    I ordered a roast duck dish. There were lots of pieces of rubbery fatty duck skin and very little meat. The vegetables were dull in color and over-cooked. The beautiful flowery essence of good Thai cooking was missing. It was flat in taste and appearance. I love well-done Thai food . . . my favorite. Avoid Thai Place if you know and like Thai food.

  • Wonderfully Deliciously Spicy
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/12/2012
    We enjoyed a very pleasurable experience at our most recent visit. The service was excellent and the food was equally as good. I love spicy food and requested to have the cook make my meal extra spicy. They did not go lightly on the Thai chili as I could see crushed Thai chili covering my chicken and could even smell the heat when our server placed the meal in front of me. If you like it HOT, they can certainly make it HOT for you! They also have one of the best bartenders in the city who makes a deliciously mean Mojito! All our food was very flavorful and had plenty of heat to keep our mouths on fire. The great thing is that if you don't like it hot, they can certainly accommodate you, as well.

The menu has many delicious sounding selections and we will definitely return. Nice evening indoor atmosphere, plus several different diners were seated in the front outdoor patio.

    I have eaten twice at this restaurant and each time have enjoyed the food/meals. Had seafood dish and chicken appetizers. First time there we ate outdoors and second time indoors. Prefer outdoors. Sometimes the indoor music can have heavy base or may not be your preference. Nice place for a date. Sometimes parking can be a little hard to find.

    Totally boring food lacking in flavor and freshness. Also, both of us has noodle dishes and thought there was some sort of slimy film to the taste. Also, I've never seen smaller crab rangoon in my life. Basically we paid for fried wontons. Hot Basil has them beat across the board, hands down. Definitely worth the drive.

    The food is always good, but was absolutely incredible this visit. Each dish is specially hand crafted to your desired heat and even at Thai Hot is full of flavor. For great Thai food or any Asian food, I always recommend that my friends eat here. This is one Kansas City restaurant that has been on my frequent dining list for years and is there to stay!

    I went there with 2 other friends to catch up on life. The server was great and had personality which is always a plus for me. The food was great and we even ordered seconds to share. Some things are spicy even when asked for mild because of the spices but I never mind a little heat if it gives flavor, which it did in the Squid Phad Phet.
