Description: Tong's Thai Island Cuisine is one of the most popular places to eat out in West End, Roatan Island, Honduras. The restaurant is considered a sort of minor celebrity on the island and locals as well as visitors try it at least once when visiting the West End area. Tong's Thai Island Cuisine has been built reflecting the heritage and originality of where it came from. It supports a traditional Thai look which makes it stand out like a jewel among all those island bars and fun-in-the-sun beach cafe types. The restaurant gives off an aura of old world Thai culture mixed with the stunning beauty of the tropical Caribbean islands; sort of taking the best of both worlds and combining them to form this beautiful place. It holds elements from both the Thai and the tropics; the seating and flooring along with the whole building has been made out of wood which is very island style. The decor, the foliage, the plating and the entire ambience has been arranged to mimic the Thai style which brings about an exotic harmony of the two cultures. Tong's Thai Island Cuisine provides a chance for both locals and vacationers to have a taste of the diversity of Thai food. It is the only restaurant serving this cuisine, which makes it an even more unique place. It is located in the middle of West End itself, in a prominent area. Lunch and dinner are served here with an amazing variety of flavorful Thai cuisine. This Asian cuisine uses very subtle flavors that are so different from those used on the island. For example, tamarind sauce, fish sauce, palm sugar, tangy and fragrant herbs and spices combine to achieve that exotic sweet and sour Thai taste. This provides a startlingly lovely contrast with the freshly squeezed fruit drinks offered made from the island's tropical fruit. Tong's Thai Island Cuisine is the place to be if you're a food lover on vacation and even reviews say it is a must try place on Roatan Island. Tong's Thai Island Cuisine Tong's Thai Island Cuisine One of the most preferred dishes in Tong's Thai Island Cuisine is the Pad Thai. It is served both with lobster and shrimp and has gotten rave reviews from customers and staff alike. All of the dishes are fresh, steaming hot, carefully prepared and beautifully presented. Small flavors like lime, extra spices, and dried chillies are offered to the customers to enhance the essence and aroma of the food. They have a great variety of soups and starters paired with vegetables, meat or chicken to awaken your appetite and leave you hungry for more. The staff is extremely well trained and they make sure that no client leaves the restaurant unhappy. They are discreet, well mannered and very quick with the service.

Friends recommended this lovely Thai restaurant because of the delicious vegetable preparations, and they were right! Service was awesome as well, but the setting (on the deck, right on the beach!) was the best!!

“Best Pad Thai any where”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

I have never had as good of Thai food as we had here. We ate on a dock by candle light, it was beautiful. My boyfriend who has been to Thailand said this was the best pad thai he's ever had. Absolutely amazing and a must visit restaurant.
