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... read 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

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.
