Jiu Thai Asian Café

787 Bethel Rd, Columbus
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

There’s simply too much good food on Bethel Road, whether you’re searching for Korean barbecue, al pastor tacos, falafel, or a memorable bowl of Chinese noodles. One of our favorites is the family-run Jiu Thai, a Shaanxi-focused spot in a strip mall (the “Thai” in the name refers to a sacred Chinese mountain range), where the move is to order bowls of delicious hand-pulled biang biang noodles tossed with cilantro, chile oil, and vinegar. Other highlights include the Xi’an-style cold noodles, pork-and-cabbage steamed dumplings, and the rou jia mo, an excellent $5 Shaanxi-style pork sandwich. There are just a handful of tables, but it’s one of the area’s best spots for a casual meal.
