House of Thai is a wonderful little venue located right off of South Springboro Park, owned and operated by Hemant Wiratsorn and his wife, Chuthamat Phornpiriyanon. This is the restaurant’s second location, as the other House of Thai is located in Beavercreek. Actually, the Beavercreek venue helped get the ball rolling on opening a second location. A loyal customer, who loved House of Thai’s cuisine, owned a vacancy within a building in Miamisburg, where he suggested Wiratsorn open a second restaurant. This new location has the same delicious menu, with the scrumptious addition of sushi.
Business at this new location in Miamisburg has been steadily picking up, but more importantly to
Hemant is the opportunity to develop a relationship with his new customers through this House of Thai Grand Opening on Monday. It’s very important to him that his customers don’t feel rushed to eat and that they stay as long as they would like. “I want people to come here for relaxation. That’s why we are the ‘House’ of Thai,” explained Hemant. When I visited with my boyfriend, George, we definitely felt at home. The dining environment was very casual and easy-going, and I especially enjoyed getting to know House of Thai’s friendly staff. They made me feel like a long-lost family member, even though we had just met each other for the first time. Hemant and his staff’s warm hospitality is surely what will bring me back to House of Thai many more times; at this little restaurant I have found a home—a house full of family and delicious food.
Speaking of food, I have never tasted such delicious Thai cuisine before, nor have I seen such a gorgeous presentation of ANY type of cuisine. I am, by no means, a food expert, but I would surely deem this food tasty. To put it simply, House of Thai’s eats were spectacular. George and I felt like royalty on our visit. I could tell Hemant and his staff were genuinely nice people simply through our conversation, but when it came to sampling some of the dishes, they went above and beyond for this interview. When George and I were presented with seven different exquisite Thai dishes and two specialty drinks, we were awestruck. For a few minutes, we said nothing but “thank you,” over and over again. I honestly thought I was dreaming, but taking my first bite, I soon realized that I actually was living out this dream-come-true. I still don’t think I can ever fully express my gratitude no matter how many times I thank them.
While we were there, we had the great privilege of trying a number of delicious dishes. George and I enjoyed every single dish, and we can honestly say there were no plates left unclean (embarrassing picture to follow). As an appetizer, we dined on Chicken Satay, which is chicken marinated in coconut milk and herbs, accompanied with a peanut sauce that complements the chicken beautifully. From the seafood portion of their menu, Pla Samros is a scrumptious three-flavored fish, topped with bell pepper and a special three-flavored sauce. I love fried fish, and the chef has perfected this fish dish.
Panang Curry was another great dish, which includes chicken, bell pepper, fresh basil, and kaffir leaves in a peanut curry sauce. My person favorite was the Bakery Rolls, which were only being offered as a special for the night, but are definitely what I recommend ordering if they are on the menu Monday. I also absolutely love sushi, so the three rolls the kitchen staff brought out were also
plates of which I couldn’t get enough. The first, the House-of-Thai Special Roll, was spicy tuna topped with salmon and crunchy flake (my absolute favorite of the three!). The second, the King Dragon Roll, was a sushi roll made of barbecue eel on top of shrimp tempura. And the last, the Rainbow Roll, was a rainbow of fish and avocado on top of a California Roll. We were also presented with two wonderfully unique specialty drinks—Thai Iced Coffee and Thai Iced Tea.
Now, you can’t honestly tell me your mouth isn’t watering from reading about this pure scrumptiousness. And all these pictures included in the article? They were taken on that very day we were presented this feast (thank you again, Hemant!), and as this picture below can attest to, every dish was finger-licking good.
According to Hemant, House of Thai’s signature dish and favorite among customers is their Chicken Pad Thai, which I actually was able to try this last Saturday, when I visited again. It’s definitely worthy of its “signature” label. All in all, if you asked me, I couldn’t pick a favorite dish on House of Thai’s menu. It is all that good! Not to mention, House of Thai receives all of their produce locally, so all of the food is fresh, too! And I know some of you may be skeptical about trying Thai food, but if the spiciness is your concern, be rest assured that when you order, you will be able to determine the level of spice on a scale from one to ten.
It’s good for the soul to try something new every once and a while. Meet that quota by attending the House of Thai Grand Opening in Miamisburg on Monday, March 19! Come hungry, and you’ll leave with a family of new friends and a very happy tummy.
Nom nom nom. Yum!
