Family-owned since 1991, Thai Place provides upscale dining and a friendly, courteous wait-staff amid beautiful Thai carvings and decorative items. Inside this Johnson County, Kan. gem the kitchen deftly balances authentic spices and preparations with proteins and produce. Signature Phad Thai combines delicious sauce and roasted peanuts with chicken and shrimp as well as eggs, fresh bean sprouts, cabbage and scallions. Other favorites include vegetable-rich Crispy Garlic Shrimp, fluffy fried rice with a variety of flavors and crunchy Thai Place Crab Rangoon, or spicy Thai Place Basil Wings served atop fresh sliced cabbage. Panang Curry is a sweet-savory combination of coconut milk and peanut flavors that accompany tender, crisp bell peppers and your choice of protein. For the perfect accompaniment sip a refreshing made-to-order Mai Tai cocktail.
- Asian: "For a great deal on this tasty cuisine consider visiting at lunch when the average entrée price is $11-12 versus average dinner prices of $19-20 for a main dish. You may escape large crowds when you dine at midday, too."
- Best for Asian Because: After more than 25 years of serving authentic Thai cuisine, this restaurant still offers a delicious and pleasant dining experience.
