There is not much in Joplin, MO, but the Farifield here recommended the restaurant called "Kinnaree Thai Cuisine" and it was very good. The Mandarin Chicken was specially good.
Thanks for the advice!
Just up the road to the East is Springfield, MO.
Try Bijans, downtown! A real European experience, without the price.
You may see Brad Pitt relaxing with a meal. This place is one of the best in MO!
