Pad Thai dishes

The menu features stir-fried rice, noodle and curry dishes, including the namesake dish, pad Thai, which diners can order with sautéed shrimp.

Located in the Lionsgate Marketplace in Overland Park, Kansas, Pad Thai is as charming as its owner, Niramol “Ann” Riensin. A woman who takes hospitality seriously, Riensin makes it a point to visit every table in her small, yet stylish dining room.

She introduces herself to all new guests and warmly welcomes regulars like they’re family – many believe she’s the secret sauce to the restaurant’s enduring popularity.

The menu features stir-fried rice, noodle and curry dishes, including the namesake dish, pad Thai, which diners can order with sautéed shrimp. But the house favorite is the pad grapow, a simple everyday Thai staple made with your choice of chicken, pork or beef stir-fried with Thai basil and bell peppers and topped with two fried eggs. It’s immensely flavorful and packed with protein.
