Eat in Atlanta — 21 October 2012
A Personal Favorite

By Hope S. Philbrick

Seventeen years ago, when we first moved to Georgia, we lived in Marietta, a suburb northwest of Atlanta. Our go-to restaurant the eight years we lived in that area of the city was Fuji Hana Thai Peppers, a two-menu restaurant with both Thai and Japanese cuisine—because the food was delicious, menu items fairly priced, service prompt, and we could always get a table. It’s where I first tasted and immediately fell in love with Thai food, which I hadn’t had an opportunity to try during the 18 years I lived in Minnesota. And where, seated at the hibachi table, I relived childhood birthday memories.

Since we now live ITP—inside Atlanta’s I-285 perimeter—it’s been awhile since I’d dined at Fuji Hana Thai Peppers. Upon learning the restaurant has been relocated, completely redesigned and helmed by a new chef, I was a bit apprehensive that it might not live up to my memories of the place. Great news: It exceeded them.

The menu still offers up Japanese, Sushi and Thai dishes, though now on one menu—stick to one cuisine or order a mix, as suits your mood. The Thai recipes are authentic and have been passed down for generations.

The owners have redesigned the restaurant interior so now it’s far more swanky, though there are still two separate dining rooms, one of which has six hibachi tables.

That means you could dine at this restaurant twice in one day and have two completely different experiences.

And with food this good, you might be tempted to do just that.
