Tucked in the corner of a shopping plaza, this restaurant has surprisingly nice decor and quiet atmosphere. The food was excellent. Every dish was carefully made with its own distinct flavors and cooked just right. Service was likewise excellent. The waitress was attentive and thoughtful -- proactively realizing that the pad thai tofu had fish sauce when the vegetarian among... More

Although there is only a set menu for lunch, the staff kindly accommodated my request for soup only. Would have been nice to have seen an a la carte menu and some shrimp crackers to start, but we were looked after and the food was fresh. Jasmine tea was always refilled and the staff were attentive.

These people just don't seem to care. No spices, cold plates, bland food. I don't think they even made the satay sauce which came up on two of the dishes. I've had very similar from a Chinese cash & carry, just a dried powder you mix with water. Save your money, get yourself something to stick in your own microwave... More

Had dinner here last night. Not much taste in the green curry. I ordered it medium spicy, but it was more like super mild. The chicken was kind of rubbery. My friend had a chicken dish with a sweet thai sauce. UGH. The spring roll appetizer was BEYOND boring. All it had in it was lettuce, a few carrots, and... More

I hadn't been to this establishment for years but remember enjoying it then so decided to return. Upon entering the host was eating his dinner at the cashier desk and spoke with his mouth partially full. I ordered the chicken pad thai to go and he delivered the order back to the kitchen. Upon his departure I looked into the... More

Hidden away in the back of a stripmall, By far the best Thai food in Bradenton. Staff is the best, fast & friendly!

Set in a strip mall, tucked back in a corner, totally unpretentious. The you walk through the door. Three very nice rooms, simple decor, authentic Thai hospitality. The food was really, really good. Highly recommend this if you're hungry for Thai food in Bradenton. Go! Eat! Enjoy!

We often do Thia, I read the reviews was looking forward to the meal. Everything was lacking in flavor and it was worst thia food we have had yet.
