Thai Island is up some steep stairs with a choice of outside (often windy) patio (overlooking water) or casual inside dining. The food is very good. The Satay and Gyozo appetizers are great. Dinners such as classic Pad Thai or Chicken with eggplant were very good. Out of the mainstream Key West, it's a good place with parking on the Bight (marina) near Charterboat Row.

We had lunch on the upper deck. Our food came quick and was very good. You can order off their lunch menu til 3 pm. The view off the marina area is relaxing while you eat. We had Thai ice tea to drink. We love the tea but it was $4.00 per glass which is a bit pricey for Thai ice tea.

Visited last Friday evening on our way out of Old Town Key West. The food was good, as was the service, however the evening entertainment really made our night - great covers! My son said hs sushi was "slightly above average" and my daughter's sweet and sour was a bit bland, but the other four diners in our party were happy with their meals.

I was craving for some sushi so my friend and I decided to go to Thai Island. We've heard about the restaurant from one of our friends who apparently is there "at least twice a week." I personally think however our friend's HYPE was a little too exaggerated. The sushi was good. I liked the size of the rolls; I've been to sushi places that made them too big to eat with one bite. I had the Rainbow Roll and she had the fried rice. For appetizer, I had the summer rolls. We sat outside on the porch area. There was a nice view of the water and the charter boat dock. The service was pretty alright, we did have to wait a while for our main order but it was overall an ALRIGHT experience. The restaurant/sushi bar is upstairs and there's a regular bar downstairs. I'd go there again.
