We had dinner at this restaurant. It's a small place in a little strip mall. The chefs are out in the open in a small kitchen area. Our food was good. The crab Rangoon appetizer was different than anything we have had before. Not sure we would order them again. The main course was a lot better. Service was just... More

We stopped in for lunch after a long walk on the Venetian Trail. My wife ordered Sesame Chicken and I had Sweet and Sour Chicken. I must admit that Thai cuisine is not my forte at all but my entrée was sufficient in quantity and quality and my wife really enjoyed her meal. The soup was the best part of... More

We went with another couple to this restaurant for dinner, one of our favorites in Venice, and had a wonderful experience. We were seated at exactly the time of our reservation, and our orders taken promptly. My wife and I had the coconut chicken soup which was outstanding. My pad Thai was delicious as always, continuing to be as good... More

When we first started coming to the Thai Bistro it was much smaller, a few tables and mostly take-out. But with the food as good as it is they expanded to add more tables. We always come here several times a winter as we love all their food. Hands down the BEST coconut shrimp soup!!!

Love this place, been going for years, both for dinner and working lunches. Kwan, the owner, manages a well run operation and is always so pleasant. I've had about everything on the menu and it is all excellent, and each dish has a unique flavor profile, something lacking in inferior Asian restaurants where everything tastes like it was cooked in...

The best Thai food in Venice, Florida. The season has started so expect the restaurant to be crowded.

There was nothing authentic about the food we ate. Over sweet pad thai. Clean restaurant. Good service.

We stopped at Thai Bistro on Christmas Eve. It was a joyful experience for our tastebuds. I enjoyed the bean noodles and coconut soup, and both dishes were delicious. In fact, the noodles got better as I ate. My mother had never tried green curry before, but she will be a repeat customer. The entire restaurant was full of cheer... More
