Welcome to Thai Kitchen Bird Pepper

The Thai Kitchen was the first Thai Restaurant to open in the Seattle Area in 1981.  My mother, Lisa Ruhl (Yai Yai) had a passion for cooking!  She wanted to introduce the indulgent flavors of Thai Cuisine , along with the culture to the Pacific Northwest.  Our restaurant has always been family owned and operated.   Many of our customers have become an extension of our family.   Passion for food and hospitality runs in our family.  My brother opened Thai Tom on University Avenue in 1994, which has become a favorite spot for many Seattlites.  Bird Pepper was started with my desire to continue my mother’s legacy… by offering my favorite dishes and giving it a punch of heat!
