3. Kai Thai
This popular Thai restaurant is known for its authentic Asian-inspired menu items and incredible service. Kai Thai is always busy with local visitors and frequent travelers. Enjoy a wide selection of delicious delicately rolled sushi and their famous Traditional Thai noodles dish with egg, tofu, scallion, bean sprouts and ground peanuts.
“Kai Thai is a hidden gem here in Milledgeville. Hidden within a Walmart shopping center strip mall, the outside of Kai Thai leads one to believe that it may not be worth the stop but let me tell you, you'd be wrong. While the restaurant itself is small, Kai Thai's flavors pack a big punch. The food is fresh and the service is good, even though they're usually pretty busy. I'd suggest ordering take out if you're in a hurry…”
