For the Thai food fans where's the best spot in the KC area? I've tried a few close to work and home. Recently, tried The Thai Place off of Holmes and Thai Spice in Lee's Summit. My favorite is still Thai Orchid in Mission. The Pad Thai and Pad Pa Ram #65 on the lunch menu are great. What do other recommend?

I haven't found a local Thai place that met muster yet. I don't remember the names but I remember the locations.

It's called Thai House - I eat there once a week, it's my favorite.

Thai is awesome. They're peanut geniuses. They also use a few mild versions of curry which compliment their vast array of seafood offerings.

I'm a huge fan. Masaman curry is an alltime favorite.

I was thinking Mussaman Beef, based on your comments... but I'm a huge seafood fan too.

(This is making me hungry.)

Spicy Basil Chicken or Beef Peanuts sound awesome.

I've been meaning to try that out since it took over my favorite watering hole back in school.

so is every Thai Place owned by the same person? I wasn't real impressed with the "a thai place" or "thai place" at Holmes and 435. The pad thai was a bit greasy to my liking.

Thom Yum Goong soup and the Panang are usually what I try whenever I eat Thai.

I like the shrimp as long as they don't overcook it.

FWIW, my two favorite Thai places are "Thai Restaurant" on Westheimer in Houston and a little Thai place in downtown Pella, Iowa. Never had better than either of those places and the Pella restaurant was 1/3rd the price of Houston.

The Thai Place is amazing. There's one in westport, or used to be one a few years ago and there's one at 87th and Antioch.

I dunno. I stopped at a Thai place on Wornall, just off 435 a while back and they couldn't even master simple Phad Thai. The seafood Phad Thai tasted like week old carp. It was awful.

I haven't had Thai in KC in about 5 years, so I don't know how good/bad any of the places are now. But Phad Thai is generally a good starting point, sort of the gateway food.

Bangkok Pavillion... 97th & Metcalf has a Thai buffet.
Been for lunch and it's pretty good. I heard Saturday's buffet is to die for.
