Peeper Thai has decent food. They don't over do the spice all and all a decent meal. I haven't found anything on the menu to make me say OMG, but nothing is terrible either.

Great food, I love the Rama Curry - chicken, broccoli rice and coconut juice with curry! Decor isn't anything special but the food makes up for it!

A great little restaurant hidden in a out of the way strip mall. Known to the locals it's hard to find a seat at lunch.

Love this place. I usually order take out. Some nights it might take 45 minutes to have it ready... worth the wait!

Thai food is usually pretty good or Pretty bad. Hot Pepper Thai food is awesome. The best in Waterford, hands down. The levels of spicy are right on target.

There are a lot of fancy shmancy Thai places around but this one has the most authentic and delicious Thai Curry. Being owned and operated by a man from Thailand makes all the difference in getting things to taste as they should. I highly recommend the Green Curry. They are opening a new one in Clarkston soon as well.

Always enjoy eating at the Hot Pepper Thai Restaurant, the Chicken Pad Thai is to die for, order it a little spicy and the flavors are wonderful. Staff is friendly and service is quick
