5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Great place to visit on a Sunday with top Thai food sitting on the river. Reasonably priced also. Would go back any time.

“Very Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Very unique environment. It was nice to visit the temple and immerse yourself in a different culture. They had a guide in the temple describing the Buddhist religion practiced here. This is also a great spot for meditation and has a nice view of the water.

“Love this place! Thai food picnic style!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Thai food at it's best. Freshly prepared and made from scratch in front of you! It is cafeteria style, so you only pay for what you would like. And very fair prices, so load up your tray, pick a seat at a picnic table overlooking the Little Palm River and enjoy! They also have a plant sale, with beautiful plants and exotics..and they are CHEAP!

“Hidden Gem in Tampa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Great location on the river. Awesome authentic & freshly cooked Thai food options - many options! The deep fried whole Tilapia was a favorite. Place to buy flowers, herbs & other items too. Don't be afraid to negotiate. Also, the Thai Temple is a beautiful site to look at and watch the followers involved in prayer. If you can get to Downtown Tampa, this place is only a few minutes away, open only on Sundays and a real treat especially on a beautiful sunny day.

“Tiny but good Taste of Thailand in Tampa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Do you like good Thai food? At a good price? With a little bit of that "unfamiliar cultural" feeling? Then on Sundays only, join the monks at their buddhist Temple, for a difference but good Thai lunch.
