Tai's Asian Bistro's Lane Avenue location, midway between Upper Arlington and the Ohio State campus, makes for a diverse clientele that ranges from college students to families. The menu is diverse, too, from Thai noodle dishes to classic Chinese entrees to sushi rolls. That diversity keeps Ron Anfone and his wife, Denise, coming back.

How often do you eat at Tai's?

We try to eat here at least once a week. It's one of the few Chinese places we go to now. We bring the whole family, push the tables together and order a bunch of food to share.

What keeps you coming back?

The food is great and the portions are huge. We usually have leftovers to eat for lunch the next day. It's affordable, too-there are always a lot of college students in here.

What are your favorite dishes?

We've tried pretty much everything on the menu. I normally go with shrimp pad thai or beef with mushrooms. From the sushi menu, I like the Volcano Roll-spicy tuna and cucumber topped with spicy crab and tempura.

What sets Tai's apart?

The prices are very reasonable, everyone is so nice and the atmosphere is fun. It's nice when the staff smiles and recognizes you. As a big plus, occasionally you'll see some Ohio State football players here.

What dish would you recommend for newcomers?

Definitely the pad thai, and anything off the sushi menu.
