Chanpen Thai Cuisine

Possibly the only Thai restaurant in south Phoenix, this tiny, unassuming spot from owner and chef Chanpen Ramonaitis is a hidden gem filled with satisfying, expertly prepared classic Thai dishes as well as a few more unique creations. Start with street food favorites like fried fish cakes and crispy Thai toast, then move on to colorful curries rich with coconut milk, spicy salads kissed with lemon juice, and stir-fried dishes laden with crunchy vegetables and, if you choose, pieces of slick and tender roasted duck. For more unique offerings and improvised dishes of Thai-style favorites, look to the specials board behind the counter. Read our review.
Filled with classic Thai dishes, as well as signature creations, Chanpen is a hidden gem in South Phoenix.
