Favorite Thai in St. Pete and Tampa Bay?

thakrza | May 13, 200706:17 AM     23

I know everyone has their faves, but I'd like more discussion on why a place is their favorite Thai restaurant. We went to Chaing Mai after reading the positive reviews here and it was one of the worst Thai restaurants I have been to, unfortunately. They were very nice and were happy to know we knew some Thai terms for their food, but the food was bland and more akin to Chinese takeout than even decent, passable Thai.

So far, I have had the best dish (massaman curry) at Ratchada and the yellow curry at #9 is passable, but the potatoes undercooked and they skimp on the veggies. My husband prefers his dish (chicken and basil) at #9. Our complaint about both is even when you ask for "Thai hot", it is barely spicy. Bring on the spices!!!!

So, please reccomend some other options for Thai. We are not averse to driving to the beaches or even to Tampa for a special dinner. But we would really like to know what the superior Thai place is in St. Pete.

THANKS as always. I have gotten some great info from all of you.
