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.

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.
