My wife and I have been huge fans of Thai Express for years. We don't deviate much in our lunch order so I can't comment on the rest of the menu, but the Curry Pad Thai is out of this world good. You'll be asked to pick your spice level from 1-10. 7-8 is the sweet spot for us. For... More

I've been going here for years and just went to their new location (further back in the strip mall). It is a lot more spacious as well its warm! The food is great as always and you still can't find a better deal for lunch.

I have been going here for over 4 years. They have catered my rehearsal dinner for my wedding. Simply put, I love their food! I have gotten multiple things from the menu and loved it all! Couple of my faves are the green curry and the drunken noodle!

Ordered take out after watching futsal at Ginga Courts. Typical Thai menu with great flavor on all the dishes that we've tried over the last few years. It must be good with Grandma preparing most of the dishes. Starting in 2017 they're moving across the parking lot to a bigger location.

They offer the BEST green curry I have ever had. Their service is always good, and the prices are very fair. Where else can you go and get a roll, salad, entrée and dessert for under $8? Let's hope they have a successful move in the coming weeks.

Like the other reviewers have mentioned, this is a little hole in the wall. But, wow! This is the best Thai food we've had. The flavors are wonderful and the service is great. Would highly recommend this place to others. For us the 4-5 level heat was a enough to provide heat without overpowering the flavor of the food. Also?... More

Thai Express has the most authentic and flavorful Thai food in GR, AND it happens to be the most affordable! The portions are huge, the service is fast, and everything is delicious! If you like or love Thai food, you won't be disappointed.

Food is fantastic and the staff is wonderful. I love that you get to choose a piece of cheesecake or an ice cream sandwich after your meal to cleanse your pallet. I will return. Not a very nice building but everything seems clean.

Great food! Delicious flavorful sauces. "Kao Soi" (Yellow curry cooked in coconut milk with rice noodles, bean sprouts, onions, green onions and topped with crispy wonton), Papaya salad was delicious, as was the Tom Yum Soup. Definitely recommend. Thai ice tea was very sweet, and saved it for my dessert, but tasty too.

This place is hard to see from the road, but it is obvious they have a big following from all the offices nearby since it gets really busy every lunch time. The food is delicious and You get great value for your money. The servers are always very friendly. The only problem with this restaurant is that it is very... More
