We come here every time we come to Palmetto. Very tasty food. I always get the panang chicken and it has never disappointed me. I like Thai hot and do find myself adding more spice to it. Love the coconut soup. The prices are really affordable. If they are busy, it will take a little longer than usual. Park behind... More

My son and I found this little restaurant while searching for something new. While it is non-descript from the outside, the food inside is delightful. I am a big fan of Thai food and Thai Bistro doesn't disappoint. The Num Sod is so flavorful, with plenty of spice and lime juice. The quantity of food for the cost is definitely... More

I believe this is as good a thai restaurant as I have ever enjoyed. The thai coconut lime soup is simply excellent. Everything is cooked to order, and except for the previously frozen seafood, everything is fresh. This is clearly the best thai restaurant in both Manatee and Sarasota Counties.

I am a very meat and potatoes kind of girl but my hubby loves Thai so every now and then I have to give in. I was pleasantly suprised how good their food was.

We've eaten at Thai Bistro before, having ordered table service and take out, so we thought it would be nice to go back for our anniversary. Big mistake! The atmosphere is nice and the food is superb. Up until tonight we would have given it a 5 star rating. After tonight we'll never go back. We tried to go during... More

We were always driving far to get good thai food. Now we have a place in our backyard. The service and food are always consistantly great. The chicken satay and peanut sauce are excellent -- full of flavor and not watered down. The pad thai portion is huge and very flavorful. We try to go at least once a week.... More

This restaurant will surprise you. Amazing that little Palmetto can have such a great Thai restaurant. Thai Bistro has become my new favorite Thai restaurant in the area. It is small, but the service and food are excellent. Plenty of off street parking in the back - which is also where the "real" entrance is located. I'd call ahead for... More
