This place has been here forever and is still the best bet for authentic Thai food. Several dishes are standouts: fresh spring rolls, bean thread salad, nam sad and fresh noodle soup when they have it. Service is always fast and the portions are beyond ample.

All your standard Thai fare. Freshly made, good portions, great prices. Dine in or take out. Clean dining room. Excellent day in day out Thai.

I eat here regularly and haven't had a bad meal. Service is fast but english is obviously not their first language though they work through it okay.The biggest problem is parking during lunch hour.

I love Thai Kitchen! Have been coming here for a couple years now and highly recommend it. The Red Curry Beef is consistently flavorful and filling! I do go with Panang curry sometimes as well, and love the homemade taste! The staff is always extremely kind and the location is excellent, right in the heart of Berry Hill!

We've passed Thai Kitchen many times over the years, and only recently noticed that the name had changed from "Rice Bowl" to "Thai Kitchen." We always assumed it was a Chinese take-out place, and there's still a glass showcase/counter where we saw people coming in continuously for take-out. Tile floor, a few paintings on the wall, not much decoration. It's... More

Order "Thai hot". Person at counter takes order. Looks quizzical. You specify again "Thai hot" and say "I've lived in Thailand. I really mean it." Wait five minutes. Counter person brings your food to the table and says "Here is your order. Not hot." You say "What?!" She says "Not hot." You say Cook didn't believe me?" She says "Yes."... More

A friend and I went here for lunch recently. Even though parking was horrible it wasn't too busy inside. The lady gave us menus and told us to sit down. She came over and got our drink order while we looked over the menu. I ordered the red curry and my friend got a salad (veggies/peanut sauce) and one of... More

I have found this restaurant to always have excellent prices. It is certainly less expensive than restaurants along White Bridge Rd, with food of at least equal quality. I strongly recommend a pot of the Coconut Soup with Chicken, which can be shared among three or four people (or be a meal for one). The only specific suggestion I would... More

I have been coming to this restaurant since it was Rice Bowl. You absolutely will not find fresher fare at the $5.00 price point in Nashville. I almost always get spicy lo mein, sometimes with protein, sometimes just veggie. I would never order the shrimp again because it is truly shrimpy but I also expected that. Yes, there have been...

First, to avoid confusion -- Thai Kitchen is also known as Rice Bowl. Same place, two different names! I've been eating here for more than 20 years. It's got WONDERFUL Thai food -- simple, freshly cooked, and FRESH ingredients. Do NOT bother with the "Chinese" selections, stick with the Thai dishes and the curries. Those little ladies standing at their... More
