The Thai Place
We have gone to the Thai Place in Westport for years and have always enjoyed it. (There are several other locations around the metro.) We are in a bit of a rut, usually ordering at least 3 of the same dishes every time — Pad Thai, Thai Place Gumbo, and Spicy Green Bean, a stir fry dish that can be ordered with meat or shrimp. One of the flavorful curries round out our selections.
I think the Thai Place makes the best Pad Thai around. I have heard that the new Hot Basil in Overland Park has a similar rendition, which makes sense since its owner worked at the Thai Place for years. Hot Basil is on my list and I look forward to trying it, but the Thai Place is in my neighborhood which makes it hard to pass up.
The Thai Place is one of our “go-to” places–we’re never disappointed with the quality of the food or the service.
