Very unique environment. It was nice to visit the temple and immerse yourself in a different culture. They had a guide in the temple describing the Buddhist religion practiced here. This is also a great spot for meditation and has a nice view of the water.

Thai food at it's best. Freshly prepared and made from scratch in front of you! It is cafeteria style, so you only pay for what you would like. And very fair prices, so load up your tray, pick a seat at a picnic table overlooking the Little Palm River and enjoy! They also have a plant sale, with beautiful plants and exotics..and they are CHEAP!

Great location on the river. Awesome authentic & freshly cooked Thai food options - many options! The deep fried whole Tilapia was a favorite. Place to buy flowers, herbs & other items too. Don't be afraid to negotiate. Also, the Thai Temple is a beautiful site to look at and watch the followers involved in prayer. If you can get to Downtown Tampa, this place is only a few minutes away, open only on Sundays and a real treat especially on a beautiful sunny day.

Do you like good Thai food? At a good price? With a little bit of that "unfamiliar cultural" feeling? Then on Sundays only, join the monks at their buddhist Temple, for a difference but good Thai lunch.

I had seen the reviews on Trip Advisor so we stopped by just to see it.... definitely easy to find, not far off Route 41 south of Tampa.... for us it was just a beautiful building with lovely grounds.... we were there on a Wednesday so there was no one else around.... would definitely check it out on a Sunday!
