Panang Thai

Named after one of its most famous curries, Panang Thai presents elevated and authentic cuisine to OKC diners. The restaurant offers multiple locations in the metro, with current and upcoming branches in Edmond, Norman and Yukon. 

Begin with fried shrimp, spring rolls or tofu, then venture to the ‘Soups and Salads’ section for spicy beef salads, or hot and sour tom-yum chicken soup.

Entrees range from various fried rice options to stir fry and the gem in the restaurant’s crown: curries. Favorites include the red curry, with coconut milk, bamboo shoots, basil, bell peppers and lime leaves; and the evil jungle chicken curry, with minced chicken, coconut milk, onions, bell peppers and cilantro.
