“Very Good”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

I am a very meat and potatoes kind of girl but my hubby loves Thai so every now and then I have to give in. I was pleasantly suprised how good their food was.

“We'll never go back!”
Reviewed February 12, 2011

We've eaten at Thai Bistro before, having ordered table service and take out, so we thought it would be nice to go back for our anniversary. Big mistake! The atmosphere is nice and the food is superb. Up until tonight we would have given it a 5 star rating. After tonight we'll never go back. We tried to go during the afternoon as their business card and answering machine message says they are open until 3pm on Saturdays. Apparently this is no longer the case. We came back in the evening and decided to order take out. Previously when we have ordered take out it has taken about 15 minutes. Certainly no longer than 20 minutes. Tonight we had to wait 45 minutes!! Absurd. After waiting 30 minutes, someone finally apologized and said a large take out order was before ours, however, this "large take out order" came in 10 minutes after we did and ordered 10 minutes after we did. We were given a free dessert for our wait, but it in no way made up for the poor service and 45 minute wait. From now on, we'll stick with Tropical Thai in Sarasota. The food is the same or better quality and the service has never disappointed in the 17 years we have been going there.

“Great thai in Palmetto!”
Reviewed December 1, 2010

We were always driving far to get good thai food. Now we have a place in our backyard.
The service and food are always consistantly great. The chicken satay and peanut sauce are excellent -- full of flavor and not watered down. The pad thai portion is huge and very flavorful.
We try to go at least once a week. Great place.. Give it a try..

“A Thai Gem”
Reviewed October 22, 2010

This restaurant will surprise you. Amazing that little Palmetto can have such a great Thai restaurant. Thai Bistro has become my new favorite Thai restaurant in the area. It is small, but the service and food are excellent. Plenty of off street parking in the back - which is also where the "real" entrance is located. I'd call ahead for a party of more than 4.
