We typically look for Thai restaurants when we travel and this restaurant is one of best. We had the yellow curry and Thai fried rice. It was very good and the service was very good as well. If you are looking for a meal close to Texas Tech, give this place a try.

This place is the best Asian/ Thai food in Lubbock. Very delicious, very inexpensive. Take orders are always fast and amazing.

Usually come here when I'm in Lubbock for appointments. Arrived around noon and place was packed. Sat at table for 4 where only 2 were seated. Ordered the Cashew Chicken which was delish and served quickly considering the crowd they had. Server very polite and pleasant. Basket of wontons and sweet n spicy sauce a nice way to start your...

I have mobility issues including being in a wheelchair and/or a walker. The restaurant is very small and my aide suggested that if we wanted to sit down and eat we should go as soon as they opened for dinner. So my aide pushed me in my wheelchair into the restaurant and the staff was very helpful and solicitous. They... More

This place had terrible food! The pad thai noodles were soggy and it did not taste fresh at all. We had to eat a mint to relieve the bloating and heaviness affects from the food! The payment method was absurd as you had to get back into the order line to pay for you meal after you've eaten. This added... More

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone! The food was not fresh and the thai pad noodles were soggy. The logic of paying for your meal is absurd as you have to get back into the order line to pay for your meal after you've eaten - this added 15 mins to our time!

Lunch on a very busy Monday. Arrived to find the parking lot packed. I think they were all at Thai Pepper. Usually a good sign. Struggled to find a table that would accommodate our 2.5 member party. Place absolutely slammed, and the two waitstaff just couldn't keep up. I don't think I saw them pause for breath the whole time... More

This is the first Thai food I had ever experienced and did so with trepidation. All it took was 1 time however, and I was hooked. I worked close by and started going back as often as I could. The food was almost addictive and craved it because it was so good. I went to other Thai places and while... More

Could not get a seat. Would not let me place an order to go. I was willing to wait. This is the second time that I felt treated rudely. Evidently they don't need my business, and they won't be getting it.

We went on a Tuesday at 4:45 pm only to find that we had to wait until 5 pm for it to reopen. It is very informal, so we seated ourselves and had a delicious meal served to us very quickly. I had the Chicken Curry which was spiced to perfection and my friend had the Pad Thai which was... More
