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... read more

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

Just got back from lunch with my daughter and wife at Thai Bistro, located just east of the center bridge at 537 E. Venice Ave. Definitely the best Thai food in this area. I had the Yum Peanut Chicken, my wife had the Thai Bistro Omelet, and my daughter had the Green Curry with Chicken. All were excellent, and the... More

I'll never forget the experience of walking into the restroom at the Thai Bistro to wash my hands before dinner. The electronic brown paper towel dispenser provided a strip of paper four inches long. Needless to say, not enough to dry one's hands. As much as I tried, no more paper was available. That experience foretold our dining experience. The... More

We stopped in mid-week and ordered Pad Thai and Cashew beef. Plenty for the 2 of us to share. Food was very tasty and prices are good.

Three of us went to dinner before the show at the Venice Little Theatre (I still love to call it the Little theatre, although they don't like to be called that anymore.). In addition to great food, we were told at the box office that purchasing an entree would get a special Thank You from the restaurant. We informed Belle,... More

I enjoyed won ton soup, steamed dumplings and ginger chicken at lunch this week! Food was great, price very reasonable, and service prompt and efficient.

Unpretentious, clean restaurant with very good food at reasonable prices. Service was attentive, polite, and fast. Four adults got great dinners (without drinks) for $50 including tip.

The Vietnamese restaurant across the street was closed so we changed gears and hit the Thai Bistro instead. The parking lot was nearly empty so we thought it might be closed too but about that time several other customers rolled up. We started with shrimp rolls which were okay. My wife had Tom Yum soup and I had chicken rice.... More

Authentic tasting and very well prepared. We all like Thai in my family and this was surprisingly good. Restaurant run and staffed by Thais, which doesn't hurt.
