Great tempura!

Enjoyed the great shrimp tempura today...everything was fresh and crunchy. The Miso soup was excellent today also. I am a local and visit Thai Island regularly. Great portions and reasonable price.

We were in Key West for 10 days during the Christmas holidays. We love Thai food and were excited to find a good Thai restaurant. We ate here twice and our meals and the service were excellent on both visits. The sushi was very good, green curry and red curry were both great. They have Chang beer- our favorite Thai... More

We stumbled upon this place when we missed a turn to go somewhere else - and are happy that we did! The restaurant is upstairs in the building, and it's a pretty plain place, but the food was very good. We ordered their Key West Roll, Tom Kah Gai and the Island Fried Rice. The Tom Kah Gai was especially... More

We found this place by accident near the end of our vacation. The location is great but unfortunately when we were there it was too cold and too wet to eat outside. The Thai food is superb. The green curry was as good as any I have eaten in Thai Island. The Pad Thai was also excellent. One of our... More

We love Thai food and always try different places where ever we go so this review isn't fair because we have dined Thai all over the world. It was just average in comparison to all the many places we've eaten Thai. It wasn't very busy the night we went to Thai Island. The service was very nice and our server... More

Thank you for The Review, and I will say that it is Fair. Although we would love to specialize in the more exotic flavors and specialties of Thai Cuisine, we must prepare a finely balanced menu to appeal to the tastes of our most beloved and local clientele and visitors. A repeat guest would find that the staff can accommodate... More

I went here on a whim with my hubby and we can't wait to be back again. I can't remember the last time I had Pad Thai that was that authentic. Good service too.

Choose this place due to its location close to our hotel. Food was clean, oil free and without excessive salt. Flavor was at or above average. The place had mostly locals at the time we went with banter between the staff and patrons. Banter ranged from local fishing spots to the economy. There were staff that roamed around that was...

We ordered the peanut satay sticks as an appetizer...they tasted like rubber! The peanut sauce was awful tasted like glue. Do not eat sushi here! If your going to have sushi please have it at a real Japanese restaurant. We ordered the red dragon roll for $15.95 and it was cold and had zero taste. The rice was not cooked... More
