Unfancy, but flavorful. Food was bland for Thai so ask to spice it up if that is your preference. Not very friendly and the restaurant isn't very nice. But still recommend for take away.

We had our first meal from Thai 5 Fast Food tonight. We had the veggie egg rolls, the Thai Basil Beef and the pork Thai Fried Rice. The food was very fresh and very hot. The pickup process was very efficient and the young man...at the pickup window was extremely friendly and professional. We will definitely do this again. Try it you will love it.More

Well this is my first time by fast food restaurant I've experienced in Florida my only other experiences was eating Chinese and Vietnamese over here so had to stop in Tampa to try this place the atmosphere is much more casual but the food that...they cook is very genuine in Thai cuisine I guess they can sulfur less because they're not using glasses or porcelain plates and bowls I'm drinking off of Styrofoam and eating off of plastic bowls as well as the utensils. Other than that the food was very good surprisingly from the chicken Tom Kha soup although not as coconut creamy but has authentic in taste. the chicken red curry is on cue of authenticity and how it taste and the use of bamboo shoots sure beats eating Thai food in Minnesota in certain places and it's not as expensive here in Florida will so far in or around Tampa Clearwater Beach area but don't be shocked if they're using styrofoam and plastic to serve you if you're eating in because they started out as a food vendor caterer for Thai food from what I have learned. But that's how the prices for eating and dining in here is less expensive otherwise very good do give this place a try Thai is my favorite of all the Asian cuisinesMore

We cannot get enough of this little restaurant. We started our loving their Pad Thai and Cashew Nut with tofu but now absolutely love the sushi menus they’ve added! Service is wonderful and everything is made fresh to order. It may take a few more...minutes to get your order but I promise it’s worth the wait!More

I ate here twice on back-to-back days. It so good the first day I came back before I flew out. The pumpkin curry was a pleasant surprise, recommended by another customer. The black bean with garlic entree was also very good. I highly recommend this...place if atmosphere is not a concern. This is a fast food restaurant.More

It’s easy to drive past this small restaurant, but you’ll be sorry if you do. What a treat in south Tampa. Every selection was fresh and flavorful. The steamed dumplings were a great starter. The hot and sour soup was filled with fresh veggies and...a hint of mint. The chicken and broccoli had a delicious, light peanut sauce. But the star of the dinner was eggplant with beef. Parking in back is a lot easier than trying to back out onto So. Dale Mabry. Lots of orders were being picked up, but the small dinning area is fine for family and friends.More

My favorite place for Thai food in Tampa! Originally a food truck, Thai 5 has only gotten better. The restaurant is small but always busy with people eating or picking up to-go. The staff is always welcoming and remembers returning customers. Food wise, everything I’ve...had has been amazing! Some of my favorites include the green curry with crispy tofu, tom yum soup, drunken noodles and panang curry. They also adjust the heat to your interest.More

We ordered takeout here tonight. The veggie egg rolls were out so I️ ordered the crab Rangoon appetizer based on reviews. They ended up being the highlight of the meal. Also ordered spring rolls and Tom Ka soup with shrimp. The Tom Ka soup was...quite good and the spring rolls were large — as others have said, the peanut sauce was flavorful. We ordered 2 entrees; I️ neglected to ask for the pad Thai mild and so it was a bit spicy for me. Likely for no one else! We also ordered the green curry with chicken. My husband thought it was good as well. A good solid takeout place for Thai. The prices are right too.More

W. O. W. !! This is it. Our go to Thai spot. And they are open later than anyone. Thank GOD we decided to retrace our steps to a place we used to frequent as a food trailer attached to the side of a once...abandoned building. The food? A 5+. Friendly? 5+ the portions? 5+ the price value? 5+. They should change the name to Thai 5+. A small,quaint and comforting dining area with tables outside as well. I love lil mom and pop dives like this one. Plastic silverware and dishes but what comes in those dishes? Delicious! I had the pineapple seafood red curry and what??? It has crabmeat in it? That's a first! Fresh shrimp scallops just the right sweetness and spice! The Tom Kha soup was perfection! The girls were so nice and accommodating. This will be our go to place for Thai from now on.More

Thai 5 was a good lunch choice for our little group. Many diners here take advantage of the take-out, but we chose to dine in and were pleased with our experience. The food was delicious and served in generous portions. We all had curry dishes,...but the menu offered many other appealing options. I hope to return to try more of them.More

Thai 5 Fast Food is now a regular restaurant and not a food truck, with about six inside tables, and one or two outside - plus off-street parking, right on Dale Mabry Hwy near El Prado. Its looks are basic - "Mom and Pop just...started a diner" - but it's got smart-enough menus, and professional pictures of their "box" meals. A box meal is a plastic container with a meat choice, rice, vegetable and eggroll. At dinner, that costs $13.95, while at lunch it costs $10 and includes soup. Needless to say, lunch is the better value, but it can be a bit crowded. Dinner is quieter and less crowded, but this is only really a dinner destination for locals who don't care about ambiance. The furniture and décor are modest. The plastic boxes enable easy take-out, and they will deliver. The food is good, but in my opinion it is not special. In general, Tampa's Thai restaurants tend to be not-special, and this one fits right in. But the staff (owner-operated) try hard to be friendly, and succeed. They take care not to spice beyond your taste. They care for you and their reputation. If they keep trying, they'll probably move ahead of the pack. Thai 5 has got winner-potential, but isn't there quite yet.More

We have been frequenting the Thai 5 Food Truck since its inception weekly (at one time, it had another name, and closed for a few months, which made South Tampa a very sad place). They are my source for my takeout orders of Tom Kai...Gai, Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles, Pumpkin Curry, Papaya salad, Chicken with Basil, etc. Excellent food, customer service, and my only complaint- "WHY do you not ever make mango sticky rice?!?!" They moved locations a few blocks south about a month ago, but the food and service are still amazing.More
