Thai Thani – A Restaurant with a difference! - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Dining
If you have ever been to Orlando and wanted to try something completely different, and you enjoy Asian food, then Thai Thani Restaurant could be just what you are looking for.
On our recent trip to Orlando some friends surprised us with an evening out promising a meal and atmosphere that couldn’t be any further removed from our usual ports of call – we were not disappointed.
We were greeted by the Thai welcome ‘Sawasdee’ (meaning hello or welcome) by a server dressed in traditional Thai costume. From the moment we entered the doors we were amazed and astounded at the opulence and décor that greeted us. Rich lavish colours and fabric, ornate Buddha and artefacts created a unique, authentic atmosphere.
We were invited to choose between a traditional Thai low table, close to the floor with lots of comfortable cushions, and although this would have been fun, decided to take the easier option of a standard table. The table we were allocated was an artwork in itself – ornate and elaborate wood carvings beneath the glass top.
Our dedicated and extremely courteous waitress took our drinks order and explained various menu choices. As it was our first visit, we all agreed to order a selection of dishes to share and sample. Appetisers included a good varied selection of soups, salad, seafood, meat, vegetarian and mild and spicy dishes. We ordered a selection including Thai spring rolls, satay and crab rangoons – all were delicious!
For the main course we were spoilt for choice! Seafood, meat, duck, red, green and yellow curry dishes, and of course, rice and noodles. Again we ordered a selection of dishes with rice and noodles, each person choosing one dish, but we all had a taster of the selection. Be warned if you opt for one of the spicy dishes on the menu be sure to have a glass of water (or beer) close to hand – they really are very spicy!
Despite trying our hardest, there was a huge amount of food left over, and as is traditional in the US were offered boxes, which we declined.
Our group consisted of four adults and two children (aged 13 and 7), and although we all enjoyed the atmosphere, and the adults enjoyed the food, our 7 year old found many of the dishes much too spicy (there are no children’s options on the menu), and would therefore suggest it is not the best place to take young, hungry children. Thai Thani is most definitely on our list of must visit restaurants for our next trip.
Thai Thani is located on at 11025 South International Drive, across from Seaworld, and easy to find. Reservations are recommended at weekends, and the telephone number to call is 407-239-9733 or 407-239-6986.
