Taylor Kwan's food is fresh and wonderfully seasoned. We have been to her restaurant for several years and have never been disappointed. Each guest is greeted warmly and Mrs. Kwan checks on all tables.

Fast service for lunch crowd, almost felt rushed to order. Quick lunch and quick check. Food was just enough and pretty good. Soup of the day was so-so, but the other soups looked pretty good. Would go back and try again. Not as hot as it could be, but enough for a lunch meal.

Thai Bistro has some of the most flavorful dishes. I love their simple dishes like Chicken fried rice, Pad Thai, or Drunken Noodle. Each time we have dined in the restaurant it has been slow service which makes family dining an issue. I would recommend carrying out your meal.

I've been here for dinner several times over the years. The staff is always very attentive and the food is consistently good. You can choose your spice level, of course...and if you like it quite "flavorful" I'd recommend the volcano chicken (or shrimp)! It's not easy for a restaurant to survive year-round and year after year in this area, ESPECIALLY... More

We had the Panang and the Massala curry - both excellent, and the vegetables were also crisp. Coconut shrimp soup was great with lots of vegetables; fried shrimp appetizer good with a light, non-greasy crust. Also a good dark Laos beer. Fried banana desert was a nice finish. Waitress very sweet. If we lived here, we would be regulars.

On a couple hour visit through Venice and heard about this place. It was outstanding. Very fresh. Very authentic. We both love trying Thai restaurants in new places and I have to say this was one of the best. Coconut soup. Green Curry. Drunken noodle. Worth the trip.

First time I visited Venice. I love the city, the sceneries the feel of the coastal town. All was great until I walked in Thai Bistro to get some food back to the hotel. The staff wasn't friendly. They didn't bother to say hello. They looked like I was bothering them by walking in!!! I ordered a dish which is... More

Everything was nice and hot. Not too spicy, just right. The coconut shrimp and fried won ton appetizers were cooked to perfection and delicious. I asked for the curry with vegetables and shrimp. My friend asked for the chicken curry. Both were cooked just right. Iced tea was very good. One can see the food being cooked from any of... More
