Thai Cafe - Chinese restaurant in Traverse City

      Ordered for take out, order was done timely(15 min) overall high price for quality of food. Peanut pad Thai was okay; Ramen noodles in cayenne. My girlfriend had the sweet sour chicken, chicken is good though asked to sub lo mien noodle from standard rice. Received wonton noodles instead. The crab Rangoon were over cooked. The cook may have had a off day but with other reviews, looks like it's the norm. I would go elsewhere for Thai

      I love the food, as evidenced by my habit of weekly takeout when working my second job.  But the prices went up this week 30%.  Unfortunately, my disposable income has not increased at the same rate so I'll need to find a new bad habit.  Maybe Dominos?

      This is by far my favorite place to eat in town. Literally the most hidden gem of Traverse City. If you don't know exactly where it's at (between Little Caesar's and Jimmy John's) you might walk by it without ever even noticing it. I haven't at at Jimmy John's or Little Caesar's since i discovered Thai Cafe.

      My husband and I dined here last night for the first time in about a year.
    Right away we noticed it was different but we proceeded to go on with our usual order.
    The waitress was very impersonal and didn't really seem too knowledgeable of the menu.

    The spring rolls had more grease than anything. There was literally grease pouring out of them.

    Our meals arrived after about 20 min. My husbands noodles were almost ice cold. The noodles of my dish were all stuck together in a pile and it was hard to eat. We decided to take it to go.

    Upon paying we asked where the old manager was because he was actually what made Thai Cafe enjoyable. Well apparently the old manager was embezzling money...
    At least he was friendly, put your food in your box for you, oh and the restaurant wasn't filthy when he was around either. Maybe ya'll should of appreciated him and paid him according to his worth.

    We will be going to Thai Kitchen from here on out!

    Clean your restaurant! The spiders are more comfortable than your guests!
