Peppermint Thai Cuisine: A Fresh And Authentic Dining Experience


I recently dined for the first time at Peppermint Thai Cuisine in the Beachwood area of Cleveland. As I was eating my way through each exquisitely prepared dish, one word kept repeatedly coming to mind: FRESH!

The presentation of each dish was obviously done with an incredible amount of love and care. Each preparation was clean and fresh and compiled without a lot of fuss. The freshness of the ingredients and presentation drove home the fact that you were also eating a healthy and unique meal.

Owners Sunny And Matt Love What They Do!

The owners, Sunny and Matt Kanegkasikorn, opened Peppermint Thai Cuisine in December of 2007 and each of them work in the restaurant every day. The menu ingredients are picked fresh by Matt at the market each morning to ensure the freshest and highest quality food is served to each and every one of their guests.

We tried a variety of dishes to get an overview of the restaurant and the menu and we were extremely pleased and impressed with every one! The colorful presentation of each were an added bonus.

The Menu At Peppermint Thai Cuisine Emphasizes Freshness and Authenticity

First was the Crab Tempura Appetizer. WOW! The dish included a very tender soft shell crab that was cooked to perfection and perfectly selected and plated garnishes. There was nothing left! This was an exceptional introduction to what was to come!

Next we tried the Pad Thai Country Style. Absolutely the best Pad Thai I’ve ever had! It was the perfect amount of spicy. The side items on the plate were also the ingredients that made up the sauce which was a nice touch. The shrimp were tender and cooked perfectly. A phenomenal preparation!

The final and favorite dish of the evening was the Garlic Salmon. We’ve been presented with many different preparations of Salmon ain numerous restaurants nd I have to say this is my favorite Salmon dish of all time! Owner and chef Matt marinates his salmon with his own garlic sauce prior to grilling it and the pre treatment is what puts this dish over the top. Not hard to see why this is also a favorite of other guests as well.
