Wai-Wai Thai Place Express - Overland Park, Kansas

Wai-Wai Thai Place Express is the Overland Park, Kansas fast food style operation by the Kansas City area Thai Place chain of restaurants. Wai-Wai serves good, inexpensive Thai food, fairly fast. You order and pay at the counter, are given a glass to get your own beverage and the food is brought to your table in about 10 minutes.

On my most recent visit in February 2014, my favorite dish, the "Seafood Lovers" had been removed from the menu and seafood in general was reduced with the elimination of mussels. The good news was that the price had not gone up on any of the dishes that I like, which remained on the menu.

The Thai spicy stir fried chicken has very good flavor. It is not "hot" even when ordered that way, but you can make up for that with a few ladles of the "Thai chilis" in fish sauce, which heats it up nicely. There is a small sauce bar next to the soda machines.

Another good choice is the Moo Phad Phet (stir fired pork with mushrooms, bell peppers, jalapenos, onions and scallions in spicy red curry sauce served with jasmine rice. The flavors combine very nicely.

I've enjoyed every dish I have had at Wai-Wai, but I think I would enjoy the chicken laab (minced meat tossed with fresh mint, red onions, dried chili, scallions, cilantro and fresh lime served with fresh cabbage) more without the mint, but it is still good. And a bargain at $7.95.

The miniature garlic pork rib appetizer (marinated pork ribs, fried crisp and served with sriracha sauce) is also tasty.

The grill is close to the dining area but mostly shielded from view. With the exhaust fan running, it gets very loud
at the tables.
