I write many glowing reviews when I truly enjoy a local restaurant. This will not be among those. Eating at Sila Thai tonight was, hands down, the worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. My boyfriend and I were accused of damaging property by a waitress, who I expect was looking for money. I was appalled at the... More

We chose this for a group of eight of us, and it was a great place to talk and have a meal. Service was charming and attentive, a blond Floridian server covered well for the language confusion and slight service hiccups of the lovely Thai server. Food should have been better. Several dishes had an excess of large chunks of... More

I have ordered to-go from here a few times, but this is the first time dining in at lunchtime. The lady was very hard to understand and was much more attentive to the larger parties and the thai speaking patrons at other tables. We ordered an appetizer and I got pad thai (asked for medium heat - got none) and... More

We love Thai food, so we were delighted to find this little gem. My husband asked if they had any specials, and we found that there is a different menu of authentic Thai foods. Be sure to ask for it! I opted for the eggplant in basil sauce. It was clearly made fresh right then. The chive dumplings were terrific.... More

Excellent service and even better food; ask for the 'Authentic Menu'...you will not be disappointed! The Authentic Panang Curry and the Pad Kra Pow Beef are irresistible! No to mention; the proud look on their face when you ask for Authentic Thai....it has just a little extra something to make the tastebuds dance!

The food is delicious; I would recommend the Pad Thai and Tom Yum soup. However, the waitress was rude and didn't even introduce the menu to us. She had a bad attitude and seemed like she didn't want to be there. Makes me hesitate to come back here.

It seems to be a family owned and operated. Every person I have encountered here have been very nice and very helpful in every possible way. I think it would be a great place for families. I do feel like something on the menu would be good for most kids. I the food is really really awesome. I usually get... More

A small unassuming restaurant run by a family serving good Thai food at great prices. Lots of locals having lunch, which is a good sign. We found this place by accident when driving around St. Petersburg. We had Lunch Special, priced at $6.95Great Value. Main courses served with chicken noodle and spring roll starter. Soup very delicious and spring roll... More

Sila Thai is the best Thai restaurant in the area. In addition to all the usual American-style Thai dishes, they pride themselves on serving excellent "down home" Thai dishes such as Khaow Klug Kapi. Unlike many (most) of the local Thai restaurants, they serve Thai and nothing but Thai -- no sushi, for example, which is quite common in local... More

Nothing fancy - just a nice local Thai restaurant with great selection and flavors. The food is fresh and tasty, and very reasonably priced. They have a standard Thai menu and also a separate menu of Thai specialties. Good service, nice environment and tasty food. Great steamed dumpling appetizers!
