My husband and I love Thai Star Restaurant! It’s a small family owned place in a small strip mall off Daniels Road. The owner always greats us! He’s very friendly! The food is some of the best anywhere! The restaurant does a large takeout business!...More

Found on “nearby” search. Not visible from the highway. Tucked into a corner of a strip center. Very authentic, fresh, reasonable cooking! Everything looked good. Nice people. Thai music adds to ambiance. Very causal place. Not upscale. I’d easily return!

Not authentic. Had the panaang curry, which was nothing more than mostly some sort of peanut sauce. I questioned this, thinking I had miscommunicated my order, and she told me, "It was paanang with peanut sauce". She didn't attempt to offer anything else. She asked...More

Description
The Thai Star Restaurant in Fort Myers, Florida is a rarity in this age of corporately owned large chains. It is a true family affair. Bill Vilaysack and his wife Vong are in the restaurant every day with Bill managing the front of the house and dealing with customers, while his wife, Vong, manages the kitchen, ensuring the quality of all the food that is served. Vong grew up in a small village in Northeast Thailand, near Laos, where her father was the village leader. Since she'd developed a love of cooking at an early age she would prepare the meals, not only for her family, but also for those dignitaries that would visit her father. Thai Star has been serving delicious Thai Food in Southwest Florida since 2005.
