The service is very friendly and all of the food is really good. Plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, as well as meat dishes. The business model is geared towards take-out, so we usually are the only ones dining in (which I like). The parking lot is small and there isn't much seating/tables inside, but the atmosphere and decorations are... More

We we're looking for a spot to eat on the way home from KC that had some good veggie options and didn't seem too heavy. Thai Time was perfect. Not far from the interstate and the food was delicious! Everything we tried lived up to its menu description even the spice level. The larb, green curry, and pork dumplings were... More

Hard to expand on the excellent other reviews on this place but will add my two cents worth. We come to Joplin to shop and this is our favorite place to eat. My wife had the Pacific Curry with veggies only and she loved it - we both kept commenting on the tasty sauce. She even was kind enough to... More

I've tried them all and nothing beats their red curry dishes!!! My favorite is the mango curry. Parking can be challenging if they're busy but it's worth finding a spot. This is a great place for a romantic dinner, the atmosphere is inviting.

On a recent cross country trip that took us through Joplin, we needed to stop off for dinner before pushing on our hotel for the night. We checked TripAdvisor for someplace close with a decent review. We weren't going to be too picky because we were hungry after a long day on the road. Upon driving up to Thai Time... More

I travel every week around the world and Thai is my favorite food. This restaurant did not disappoint! Great food in a little unassuming cafe. Must try!

I've been here a handful of times and I always ask myself after why I don't come here more often. The food is really good and customer services ranks way up there. The faults that I have found is that the parking is very limited and lunch portions are a little on the small size. I'm usually not a person... More
