Do not assume all Thai food is good -- this place is so disappointing: the food is not good, the atmosphere is typical strip-mall. I went twice, thinking perhaps I just ordered the wrong thing -- a mistake.

The food at Wanpen is always outstanding. Fresh vegetables, meats, soups, and noodles with luscious sauces. Not much to look at - don't expect anything fancy. The food is the star here - Tom Yum Gai soup, Pad Thai, vegetable LoMein, hot chicken wings, all...More
