Thai food consists of wholesome dishes that are served in small bits like snacks. You can easily pick up a quick but delicious dish at Little Thai Place for a few dollars. Some of the popular Thai dishes in our restaurant include salads, soups, chicken or beef satay, and spiced raw vegetables.


An important aspect of Thai food is presentation, which is one of the most exquisite in the world. Vegetables are elegantly curved using a paring knife and ice water. In addition, food is often served in western cutlery consisting of beautifully decorated plates, forks, and large spoons.

Instead of a fork and a knife, Thai food is eaten with a spoon and a fork with the spoon held on the right hand. However, some people like to eat Thai food with chopsticks, which we usually provide on request.

Each dish is served in a separate plate and diners do not combine different foods on one plate. Instead, they sample one dish at a time often with fragrant rice on the side. In addition, soup is served in bowls.

Why is Thai food often spicy?

Thai food is known for being spicy because it contains multiple ingredients that give it a spicy taste.

Health benefits

Although Thai food is rich in flavor because of the spices it contains including ginger, garlic, and pepper, these ingredients also have health benefits. Pepper has many health benefits including helping to lower bad cholesterol, clearing congestion in the respiratory system and sinuses, lowering blood pressure, and reducing inflammation.

Ginger helps to treat morning sickness, nausea, diarrhea, and motion sickness. It is also an excellent antioxidant and aids digestion. At Little Thai Place, we often dice or crush ginger before adding it to entrees. We also slice it and use it to prepare one of our most popular beverages; aromatic herbal tea.
Garlic promotes cardiac health and often helps to minimize the symptoms of hypertension and high cholesterol. It also promotes gut and immune health. Some of our dishes contain crushed or sliced garlic. Peppercorn helps to relieve intestinal gas and excessive sweating and urination. It also stimulates the stomach to release hydrochloric acid, which aids digestion.
