The food was average when we went so we chalked this place up to paying for the view which is outstanding. There is also a bar below the restaurant in case you want to have an adult beverage or two.

If your in need of something different and fancy a thai then it is worth a visit. The food we had was good. We had chicken panang, pad se ew and various starters. Like some of the other reviews state the decor is worn and could do with a face lift and from experience thai people can come across as... More

The Thai Island Restaurant & Sushi Bar is a fun place. I read some of the other reviews about the food being bland, the place being worn out, and its not what it used to be. The place is a little worn on the inside, especially the main floor bar area when you walk in. The upstairs patio overlooking the... More

The place looked run down. The chairs not clean. The staff not friendly. After we were served the waitress didn't come to check on us. We had to go looking for her for more food. The portions were very small. Also be careful when you get the bill...the gratuity is included in the bill yet when you get the bill... More

First of all, the lady that answers the phone - should take a class on manners. Very rude on the phone. No please, no thank you. The sushi I ordered was disgusting. The tuna that they used must have been old or something, because it looked like someone chewed it up and then spit it out. The sushi also lacked... More

Hello, I am sorry that you feel that you were not treated with the delicacy that you feel that you deserved. Rudeness is never tolerated,but a busy restaurant environment can be LOUD and telephone communications can be curt out of a need for conciseness and clarity. Principally I would like to distinguish for all readers that your experience is based... More

After eating in various places in Key West, we were hoping for something better here as we love Thai food, but particularly after trying the other Thai restaurant on the other side. But while it was slightly better, the food was still somehow missing something. Staff were quite friendly, though the Thai owner looked like she didn't want to be... More

I can admit the few times I had the food that it was pretty decent but the owner and the other women that work there has had a bad attitude with me on numerous occasions and i refuse to eat there again.

Hello Carlos, I am sorry that you have had less than stellar experiences with customer service from the staff. Without specifics, I cannot pinpoint exactly what transpired or how to address your hurt feelings. I am at a further loss, because the only time that I have ever witnessed any curt attitude from the owner towards a member of the... More

Expensive food. Can get better take out. Not happy when we left after seeing the check. Paid $70 including tip for 2 adults and 1 child for 2 sushi rolls and one dinner. Could've made better dishes at home and I'm not a cook by any means.

We stumbled upon this Thai restaurant, and the food was very good. Everything we had was very good, I can say that because I tasted everything on our table, and we ordered a lot of food. The service was polite and prompt.
