Magically Delicious

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Jacksonville area. The food is so so good, fresh, and prepared very well. I just wish they would make the portions a tad larger. The curries are delicious but I find myself ordering the pad woon sen quite often. The service is friendly too. You cannot... read more

Love this place. Im a Jax beach local. I dine in and get takeout regularly. They also deliver to a small area. The food is sooo good. I haven't had a bad dish at all. My favorite is the Green curry with tofu. Lots of vegetarian options.

This restaurant has an incredible menu - almost too much to make a selection from. I thoroughly enjoyed my green curry and could haven even gone spicier. The one thing that kept me from giving a 5-star was the fact that I don't recall seeing an MSG caution on the menu and by the time I went to bed the... More

Buddha's Belly is the go to place for great Thai. Their Pra Ram is the best, fried pieces of eggplant on a bed of spinach and broccoli with a steaming peanut sauce as hot as you want it, and rice. I love the eggplant, but they offer chicken, shrimp, tofu, or pork. They also have excellent fish dishes, noodles, curries,... More

Really tasty cuisine but the portions are really small. My husband had to go to Burger King shortly after dinner. He was still very hungry. It is also a little pricey.
