If you’ve been to the Orem Wal-Mart very often, you’ve probably spotted this little family-run Thai spot in the strip mall across the street. Our first visit was just over a year ago, but Thai Evergreen has become our favorite Thai take-out place since it’s not too far from our home. It’s a bit of a hole-in-the-wall and a little too quiet if there aren’t many diners there, but the food is fantastic and the service is friendly.
Thai Evergreen has a variety of dishes on the menu including curries, noodles, soups, and their own homemade ice creams. If you’re there at lunchtime, take advantage of their lunch specials. There are three lunch choices for $7.50 each ($7.99 if you want to include a drink). Each is served with white rice, two dumplings, and two entrees (Massaman Chicken Curry & Cashew Chicken, Teriyaki Chicken & Orange Chicken, or Garlic Chicken & Beef Pepper Steak).
We’ve tried quite a few things there and everything has been served hot and seemed very fresh, generally with lots of perfectly prepared vegetables. We’ve never had anything that hasn’t been at least good, but a lot of the food has been excellent.
Cashew Chicken & Massaman Chicken Curry Lunch Special: The Cashew Chicken has a lot of red & green bell peppers, pineapple, cilantro, and onions with an average amount of cashews. The Massaman (one of my favorite Thai dishes) has a wonderfully creamy-coconut flavor with nice chunks of chicken, potatoes, & carrots. I seriously order the Massaman every single time.
Orange Chicken & Teriyaki Chicken Lunch Special: The Orange Chicken is one of the best I’ve had with a fresh orange-tasting sauce, crispy fried pieces of chicken, and little orange segments. The Teriyaki has a lot of vegetables including broccoli, onions, & carrots in a sweet sauce.
Spring Rolls: Filled with fresh vegetables & mint with a spicy pepper dipping sauce.
Pad Thai: Typical flavors, but done well. Little Diner loves this and can usually eat about 100 helpings by himself.
Crispy Sweet & Sour Chicken: Breading on the chicken was still crispy with a quite sweet sauce and lots of vegetables including red & green bell peppers, cucumber, celery, tomato, pineapple, cilantro, & green onion. My kids’ favorite!
If you live close enough for take out, phoning in an order is really easy and it is ready really quickly, usually in ten to fifteen minutes! You can also save some money by using a Restaurant.com certificate whether you are dining in or doing take-out. Restaurant.com has discount certificates available to thousands of restaurants across the country. Their certificates are easy to use with few restrictions (besides minimum purchase amount) and never expire.
