Lovely decor and food was really good as was the service. Green curry with chicken added was delicious and the spring roll was scrumptious. Friends said the same thing about their food. Friendly cosy environment. Good meal and very reasonably priced.

Isan Thai isn't luxurious when it comes to decor but it does rank at the level of the best in Sarasota when it comes to food preparation and service. They have a nice menu and all the food is freshly prepared. It may be a...More
