Not sure why so many poor reviews for this restraunt. Visiting Mashville and the park we took a walk to Satay. We thought the food was very good and fresh. Very reasonable and the portions large. Get the salad not the Spring roll. My wife...got the salad and raved about the dressing. I got the spring roll and that is the one thing I think they may not make in house. It was just okay to meh.. Service was great. Small place and food served on disposable plates. So fine dining it is not. But fresh good tasting thai food it is. Be careful of your heat level. I got a 2 plenty spicy (I did not want it too spicy), My wife got 3 again we can handle but if you do not like spicy be careful.More

We ordered Tom Yum soup Tofu and an appetizer for a takeout. The pro- the person from whom we picked up was very polite and asked if we needed any extra sauce packets ( couldn't think why we need it for the soup.). The con-...the soup was a great disappointment and not like any Tom Yum soup I have ever had before. It was very watered down version with a sickening sweetness and tomato slices and tofu floating. We basically fished out the tofu because we were hungry and threw out the soup down the drain. The pan fried dumplings were dry ( and we thought there would be some sauce packets for these but there were none). Overall- money down the drain!More

I was in the area and needed a quick bite to grab to go. I was really impressed with the food quality and how quickly it was available. Would try again!

Recently I was in town for just the day and asked Siri for a Thai place near me... Satay Thai popped up and I'm glad it did... I ordered the Panang Curry which came with a small bowl of clear broth soup, white rice (generous...portion) and a small spring roll with dipping sauce. I got an ice water and the whole meal was under 10 bucks. When I ordered the man asked what spice level I wanted (1-5).. I thought about three but decided to go with two. I am glad I did.. the food was delicious but I think if I had ordered anything more than a two I would have caught on fire right there. Excellent place and when I am in town I will be back.

Needed a quick bite to eat while wondering in the Vanderbilt area. The restaurant is very basic with no frills and counter service. The individual who took our order was patient and explained the menu. The fried rice was ok and basil chick pretty good....The egg rolls were underwhelming. The entire meal was under $20 for two. We left feeling full and happy. Good people watching as they were a wide range of people eating—locals and college students. All in all it did the job. Definitely not bad but not the best Thai food. If you are a very discriminating Thai foodie I would suggest that you should pass as it is pretty basic food.More

Halal pho and satay! Couldn't be happier! And it's right next to Vanderbilt too. This student-friendly Asian-street-food outlet caters halal meat for certain dishes (only those specifically stated in the menu; do take note not everything is halal, and they do serve pork dishes). Prices...are pretty reasonable too.More

We ordered lunch for 5 and received what I consider the worst Thai/Chinese food I have ever eaten. The orange chicken is pictured, had maybe 6 pieces of chicken that tasted like they were fried in year old grease. The batter on the chicken was...very thick and had no flavor. It was so bad that we had to remove it to eat the chicken (see pic) At nearly 11 dollars I would expect more. Do yourself a favor and do not stop or even consider ordering from here.More

I'm not a regular with Thai food, so I really didn't know about the levels of "heat" in the food. Based on a scale of 1 to 5, diners can select the spiciness and heat level of their orders. My husband and son who like...their food hot were more than challenged with a Level 2. I ordered the Pineapple Curry. It was tasty, but I'm not so sure I would order it again. I felt something was missing. The fried rice comes with egg. One has a choice of ordering their entrees with fried or white rice. I can say that the restaurant provided a more than ample portion size for the price.More

So-so food with average prices and better to carry out than sit and eat. Strip mall quality food. We usually go on down to Lemongrass and have great food. This was across from the h hospital where I was and thought it would be quicker

It's good place if you are looking for take away when you are running out of options. Food will not leave Thai taste at the end of your meal. Good menu with nice choices but taste isn't to die for.

We had gone to one of the other Thai restaurants and were quite disappointed in our meal. Went to Satay the following day for lunch and had one of the best Thai meals we have ever had. Great menu selection and everything was very fresh....Had the coconut bread pudding for desert and it was great! Nice, small, intimate restaurant that was very quiet and the owner is very friendly. Can't wait to go back next time we are in Nashville area.More

We stumbled on this jewel when walking home from Logan's. It's hidden in a strip mall. Order Thai specialties from the counter, and enjoy an authentic experience. The food is freshly prepared and flavorful. We wish we had a place like this near us. Don't...miss the soft shell crabs!More

As a Nashville local this restaurant is in a great location for a workweek lunch. Parking can be a hassle at times. The staff is always very accommodating. I do wish they would use real silverware and plates instead of plastic and Styrofoam but that...doesn't keep me from eating there. I like the curries - they are creamier and thicker than other Thai curries in town. I also would recommend the Spicy Basil. I like the way they cook their tofu - not dry at all like I've experienced other places. I see a lot of people eating Satay there but have not tried it yet. Spice levels here are bit hotter than I've experienced elsewhere. I usually get a 3 at Thai Phooket and rarely venture past a 2 here. I will definitely keep eating here for a quick affordable lunch.More
