Some excellent Thai oriented choices starting with the seafood soups (just the right amount of lemon grass and cilantro as well as generous pieces of sea food). Spring rolls were great starters and any of the traditional Thai dishes were tasty and large portions so we always had something to take home every visit. Wait staff including the bartenders were...

I had chicken massaman curry that was wonderful. My husband had a burger. Both were worth the trip. Their menu was varied...something for everyone. Portions were ample, service was great. We were there for lunch.

It doesn't look like you are going to get fantastic Thai food here, but you certainly are. The menu was a good size and offered many different choices. We love spicy food so they accommodated us by pumping it up, plus the food was fresh, beautifully presented and so tasty! They know what they are doing, and every time we... More

With a menu that features a combination of Thai cuisine and American bar food the Sand Trap has something for everyone. Liquor is limited to wine and beer. Staff is friendly and accommodating. A local favorite haunt that fills up early.

This is our 'go to' Thai Restaraunt in Venice. Ingredients are always fresh, well prepared and attractively presented. Staff pleasant and professional, and prices very reasonable. Surprising find in a strip mall, but well worth the short drive. They can and do get busy (no reservations) but we have never waited too long for seating and enjoy eating at the... More

The best thai food you will ever eat. Service is not that good.only one waiter on a busy sunday. Took them 30 min just to get our order. Phone always goes to voicemail when trying to pre order a to-go meal before hand. This place would be much better if they got more staff:)

We were visiting friends in Venice Fl. and they suggested this restaurant. What a Gem. We had excellent service and the food was delicious. I had the Massaman Curry which was the best I have ever had. Portion size was plenty and left no room for dessert. You can't go wrong here.

Would have driven right by this restaurant as it is in long strip mall and easily missed. Glad a friend recommended it. My husband and I both ordered off the Thai menu (they also offer Western food). Delicious and very good service. The price was right. The restaurant has a sports bar vibe - lots of tvs and a gorgeous... More

We had dinner at this restaurant after a friend recommended it, we were looking for a Thai restaurant. We were offered the bar since the tables were full, and since we usually like sitting at the bar, we did. The bartender needs some serious training, he would never last working anywhere else and it's only wine and beer! He was... More
