“authentic made with the freshest ingredients”

Featuring stir fried thai noodles (pat thai), holy basil stir fry (pat gra pao) & all your favorite sizzling thai specialties made from scratch with farm fresh ingredients. Thai Express is always fast and always fresh- and the portions that you receive are more than generous. Generally considered, especially among the UC community, to be the best Thai food around. The Chicken Pad Thai is something that you can't miss. The women who work here are incredibly kind and offer you samples of their delicious meals.

Thai Express is awesome. If the restaurant wasn't cash only, I'd be in here more often. The cooks aren't chumps about spice. If you order 10/10, you will be sweating.

I love this little Thai place near UC. You get a lot of food for a good price. The ladies who run the place are great and serve up a mean Pad Thai. Cash only, but there is an ATM right around the corner if you need to take some out.

The menu here is very limited, as is the seating inside (also, no booze!). However, the pad thai is pretty legendary around these parts. Check it out!

Cash only! I've only ever order the chicken pad thai here (level 4/10), but it's so damn good, I'll probably never order anything else. I only wish they were open on Sundays.

Thai Express is my SECOND favorite place in Cincinnati to get Thai (Green Papaya is #1) - but this place is the best value in the city for Thai by a mile, and the spice levels go way high

Cash only, but worth it for the best pad Thai I've ever had. You know how the pad Thai at most places looks and tastes the same? It's just a little better here. They even use fresh veggies! BUT BE WARNED: they make it SPICY! Err on the side of caution.

The bomb dot com! Really big fan of the classic pad thai to take out. They're flexible with the spice level. Highly recommend!

Amazing Thai food! They take credit card now too. They're flexible with however spicy you'd like, and the pad Thai is a must try!
