It’s only open on Sundays, and parking is limited, and the lines for food grow very quickly. When we went, some of the lines actually ran out of food! But the food that we did get to try was very good. Visit the Temple when...More

Must go at least once if you live in Tampa or somewhere to take visitors. Parking is limited and it gets crowded! Arrived about 1000 am which was perfect timing. Lots of food vendors to chose from. Bring your cash, no cards accepted. Great place...More

After hearing about the delicious Thai food available on Sunday mornings, we went to the Wat Mongkolrata temple for their Sunday morning feast. We were there by 10 and got parking – the lines for each food item only took a few minutes. If you’re...More

It’s only open on Sundays, but it’s a great little local secret for a variety of Thai food choices. You can sit at picnic tables with a view of the river. Plan to get there early for the best selection and be patient for parking.

Was told about this place by a family member. If you are in the area worth the drive. Go early as the lines are long and food sales out. Fresh Asian food (Tiland). By the river... so enjoy the view while having lunch.

I did find this schedule. It appears that they do have a ceremony, so I don't think they are open as usual as this appears to be a ceremony for the monks. Perhaps you can call and check. I found this on their website. I hope... More
