“As close to authenticity as you can get.”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Had dinner with my husband here a week ago and I must say it was a positive experience. The boat makes for an excellent atmosphere although it got a little chilly that evening because of the wind, but it wasn't a big deal.

I had the Shrimp Tom Yum soup which I requested to be made as authentic as possible, in other words, as spicy as they make it in Thailand, and Pla our server was very accommodating. It was delicious. My husband had the Breaded Grouper with sweet chili sauce which he found alright.

I'd say the highlight of our dining experience was the service and the atmosphere. The food is good, and we loved that we also enjoyed a locals discount.

I'd recommend it.

“Great Service!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

We had a great dinner, reasonably priced! Looking for Thai in Key West, we were not disappointed. Our waiter (Don?) did a fantastic job explaining the menu, we had ordered all on his recommendations, and everyone really enjoyed their meals. We would go back again. It's a neat place, great view of the harbour or dock slips. You can peek into the kitchen from the outside, they all look like they take pride in providing great service and food. We were there around 8pm, it was packed full when we left.

“Great Floating Restaurant”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We had lunch at the floating restaurant on Nov 2 while our Toyota was being serviced down the street. My wife had Tom Ka (shrimp in coconut soup) & I had Panang Curry (tamarind & coconut milk w pork). We loved the food and ate it all (we usually take half of restaurant meals home). Great flavors – on par with what we had at a Thai restaurant on the Big Island. We highly recommend the restaurant to anyone in the area.

“Excellent Thai food.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Had lunch today at the Thai Life Floating Restaurant. Thought it would be hard to get to with the new traffic pattern but it wasn't at all. Have had great meals several times before and wanted to support them during the new traffic pattern. Had the Tom Yum soup with shrimp, Phucket spring rolls and the Pla Kung shrimp salad with lemon grass, mint and cilantro..yum. Everything was freshly made and very tasty. Also a good place to bring your fresh caught fish.
