I got the wrong order and I wasn't even pressed, it was so delicious. To be fair, we decided to order from Thai Express at the worst most possible time, UC homecoming at 7pm. The place was extremely packed. We ordered a pad see ew, green curry and crab rangoons. we got a pad thai instead of pad see ew, but it was extremely delicious. I was a big fan of the spice level (I still didn't think it was as spicy as it could have been), but my partner thought it was a good level. If you're not a huge fan of spice, I would recommend asking for a lower spice level. The green curry was a nice level of spice too and just the right amount of flavor. I was also a big fan of the crab rangoons as well. Everything was well balanced. I can't wait to come back, hopefully, at a time when they are much less busy!

After working an OT shift at work I called in an order to this little spot. A coworker recommended. The staff were all so kind and friendly and helpful. They recommend items to try on my next visit, even circling them on a menu for me. I ordered chicken spring rolls and holy basil stir fry. I ate the spring rolls within 5 minutes of opening the bag. I have no picture to share as I ate them literally driving down the hill. They were small but absolutely delicious. I should have ordered 10! The stir fry was not the most flavorful. Let me say I've never had this dish anywhere before so I may not be a good judge. I will for sure return and try a different dish with my spring rolls.

I LOVE Thai Express! I've been going there for over 20 yrs. I first tried it while pregnant and satisfying cravings. My son is now 21y/o. I moved away from the area and have tried other Thai restaurants with no satisfaction. The owner and her staff would yell my name as soon as I would walked in and we'd laugh. I loved it! I've gotten plenty of ppl hooked too. I only get to the area about 3 times a year now, but they still remember me by name.

Was super excited to try this place out but unfortunately the Green curry and Penang curry we got were really bland. Service was nice but was hoping more from the food.

Love this place, absolutely the best food in clifton in my opinion. You get a lot of food (i normally get two meals out of it) very reasonably priced as well. Can be a little spicy so if you don’t like spice get it low on spice. Service is great and fast and everyone in there is incredibly friendly.

Most authentic Thai food in Cincinnati! Run by the sweetest people, and exceptionally tasty. My personal favorite is the red curry

I love Thai express. You get so much food for the price and Ed is so friendly and happy. Definitely worth the drive.

Bell peppers were too big and looked like they were pulled apart instead of cut. I counted 4 pieces of chicken in my $13 entrée as well as some canned mushroom and these bell peppers. Cheaply made not worth the price. I will say the spring role was great though

I ordered the Ginger stir fry Chicken, I liked the taste of everything in it except the mushrooms(may be use a different kind or a better quality one). Pad thai was ok. They offer take-out only and parking can be tricky around the restaurant area.

The noodles aren't correctly matched to the dishes and it's way too salty. People need to get out more if they think this is good Thai food

Absolutely delicious food at a reasonable price. Staff was welcoming. I'll definitely be returning!

Consistently excellent. Best Thai takeout in Cincinnati. Ginger chicken is fantastic! Pad Thai among the best around! Excellent service! Highly recommend!

I have searched for years to find a place with food that can compare to my favorite Thai restaurant from my childhood, and this is the closest that I have ever tasted. Thai Express is phenomenal and I can't praise it enough. Not to mention that the servings are huge and are enough for me to have 2 leftover meals. This place is a gem on UC's campus and I am so lucky to have it nearby.

The food at Thai Express is phenomenal. I have had many dishes at this restaurant and everyone of them has been delicious. Every time I get takeout I always get the spring rolls and Galangal soup. They are fresh and have layers of flavor. My favorite main dishes are the Green Curry and the pad Thai. You can tell that the chefs have pride in the dishes with the high quality of food that is produced. Authentic and delicious.
