Thai Island is a large waterfront Thai and Sushi patio restaurant that opened Valentine's Day 2008. Thai Island's menu contains one of the largest selection of fine fresh ingredients: including locally harvested thai herbs and spices combined with local noodles, meats and seafood used in preparation of traditional thai dishes. In addition to onsite dining, Thai Island also delivers to all locations within Key West as well as on Stock Island.Also on the same property and at this waterfront location is the newly renovated Barrelhead Bar, which is the site of the 1989 filming of the James Bond "License to Kill" movie, starring Timothy Dalton. Enjoy happy hour with our locals: including our experienced boat captains.

Very disappointing

The worst Thai food I have ever tasted! In fact, there was no taste. This is like taking the Thai name in vain. It really shouldn't be allowed! All of our party had different meals, and none of the dishes tasted good or looked attractive. It was almost like Thai McDonald - fast food à la Thai... read more

Thai Island is located on Garrison Bight, on the second floor overlooking the Harbor! The food is just as good if not better than any Thai I've had in Chicago. The staff is very friendly and the sushi so fresh. The Saki went perfectly with my soft shell crab stir fry. My friends "B6" spicy tuna binto box had a... More

I would look for another place if you want to eat good thaifood. The only reason to go there, is their outdoor deck. Our tip would be to limit the menu, as they have way too many options and they have proved that its not possible to make all of those dishes to satisfaction. Stay away, unless you prefer to... More

Because of Key West's reputation for drunkenness and partying, I figured finding good sushi would be a long shot. This place was about a ten minute walk from my hotel and I was very pleased. The ginger salad was the best I've ever had. The dressing was tangy and the chef put a few chucks of seared tuna in the... More

My husband's had pad Thai noodles and it was good but not spicy hot which is what he expects from a Thai restaurant. He did request their hottest option. I had the tempura with shrimp and it was not good. The shrimp was mushy and the carrots were huge and rock hard. I couldn't even cut them with a knife.... More

This is a very good Thai restaurant. The food was very good. Miso soup was very delicious. Red shrimp curry, and Green shrimp curry were really good. Fried banana ice cream was also very good. Seven of us had a really good experience at this place. The only drawback was that the furniture was very ordinary. The server was polite... More

We are always happy with the service and sushi at Thai Island. As locals, we have lots of choices and always enjoy when we go for sushi and Asian food here. They are attentive and the food is great. It's off the typical tourist areas in key west, but worth seeking out for a great meal.

We happened upon this restaurant and climbed up the stairs to a deck with a breeze and a view - very pleasant. My husband had chicken teriyaki with vegetables, a generous portion.
