The food was bland as was the ambiance. The place was dark and looked dirty. The food was not flavorful.

A friendly, family owned restaurant that has been in Sarasota for many years. There is a reason for that. The food is exceptional and the owner genuinely cares about her customers. It is a small place on busy Main Street, but well worth the visit! Thanks for reading!

I had dinner here with an old friend; the food was good and the service was great. There were not many people in the place - a dive-y storefront-type of location - but that was a good thing, as it meant a more quiet atmosphere and better service.

I had the red curry with pork and Julia had the Pad Thai. Both were excellent. The curry was thick and peanutty with big chunks of pork and red and green peppers. Both were very generous servings.

I have been on a Thai kick and this place is one of my top 3 in town. They nail the spice level just right, and each level seems proper to the name. The portions here are a perfect size leaving you very full but thanks to being well made not feel bad. The people are nice and service is... More

I used to ordered Pad Thai just about everywhere its offered, but have been disappointed so many times I finally limited myself to ordering it ONLY at a restaurant that serves only Thai food. Tropical Thai Restaurant is one of two restaurants I've found that serves the kind of Pad Thai that's so delicious it's hard to stop eating it,... More

Look no further: this is the real deal. Fabulous Thai food. Yum! I've liked it so much, I've never varied in what I've ordered. Hubby's been good enough to branch out. So far, everything we've eaten here has been spot on.
