Wife and I eat there a lot. She gets the chicken with cashews. I have been trying different things on the menu: pad Thai, curries, and other dishes. Their veggie spring rolls are a nice starter.

The entree food is good, not very good. Appetizers were disappointing. The servers were very nice. There is outdoor seating which is the way to go in the right weather.

This visit was our second leaving with the same impression of very good, carefully prepared fresh food at a reasonable price. We especially enjoyed their vegetable rolls. Each family member had a different meal and everyone enjoyed their individual lunch. The service is genuinely friendly which adds to your enjoyment. If you want Thai food and are near Del Ray,...

Had many items off the menu and they are all good. My favorites are the drunken noodle and Thai fried rice. My wife loves the green curry.

Thai Peppers is Del Ray's "hidden in plain sight" secret that the locals know and the visitors take forever to figure out. Located in a little yellow house on the same block as the Evening Star and Bon Vivant, this family-owned spot is a must-eat in Del Ray. The patio is comfortable and has a great street view to people... More

This is a place with good decent service and edible if not elegant food. The ambience is not memorable but we enjoyed visiting here upstairs where few of the tables were taken so it was nice and quiet. The food is rated for spicyness levels so you are warned to choose carefully. The panang taste was authentic.

We've been eating at Thai Peppers for years, back to an era when there wasn't a Thai restaurant on every other block. This restaurant is consistently decent quality, especially for the price. My husband likes the curries. I like their very spicy green papaya salad. Avoid anything fried, which (duh) doesn't exist in Thailand anyway.

My wife and I were walking down the main drag in the Del Ray neighborhood and this restaurant caught our eye. It's quite small -- perhaps 6 or 7 tables total. I was somewhat skeptical at first because of the laminated menu with lot's of different selections, and accompanying pictures. Our food however was very good. Tom Yum soup was... More
