“Great Thai Restaurant”
Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

I've been going to Thai Island since it opened (2005 I think) and it's one of my favorite local restaurants.
The food is consistly good to outstanding. The restaurant is family owned and operated and you will likely be waited on by the owners (husband and wife) or a relative of the owners. The Crab Rangoon is the best I have ever had. Other favorites of mine include: tuna satay, chicken fried rice, pad see ew, steamed dumplings, and garlic and pepper red snapper.

Disclaimer: after so many years of frequenting the restaurant I have become friendly with the owners, however my review is based soley on the quality of the restaurant.

Thank Critical Review... F

“Pretty Good Thai”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but Thai Island has all the basics done well - the Pad Thai and Pad See Ew are good, and the Me Grop appetizer is a must try. The spicier curries are excellent, especially the green curry, and have just the right amount of slowly building heat. If you're in Tampa and have a hankering for Thai food, Thai Island's worth a trip.
