    Thai Market  opens on Sunday mornings, but popular dishes are sold out quickly. Remember taking cash for food as they are cash only. You can bring dogs on a leash, eating on riverside.

    Lunch on Sundays! Super cheap-cash only. Most authentic Thai food you'll get in Tampa Bay. This was the best kept secret many yrs ago-now it gets way too crowded way too fast. Food is still awesome

    Meet there with my Thai sisters! I pass like thai lady ;)They integrate you to their prayers. Super affordable market & breakfast on sundays. Picnic areas. Stop by early or you'll get no food at all!

    Get there early to get some food! Cheap, delicious, and generous-portioned food. They also sell plants and flowers. Great view. You're also supporting their community with your purchases!

    The noodle Soup is amazing but get there early or be prepared to wait. Visit the Temple. Chanting begins at 1pm. Beautiful. Be sure to visit the website to learn proper etiquette.

    The Thai Temple practically radiates peace. The golden temple sits beside peaceful waters. Every Sunday morning, hundreds gather to enjoy traditional homemade cuisine and a lively market.

    Best thai noodle soup of Tampa. All their food is cheap and good. Thai tea, pad thai, papaya salad and sticky rice with mango; are the must try.

    The ultimate peaceful Sunday. Enjoy lunch by the river and then take a peek inside the temple. Best orchids in Tampa, too.

    Get there early (before 11) to beat the crowd. Order coconut custard IMMEDIATELY and you'll pick it up after you're done eating your meal. SO GOOD.

    If you get pho (soup), when you hand them your cash ($5), ask for vegetables from the stock. They don't come automatically and are the best part!

    You have to taste everything! Pork eggrolls, noodle soup, and most definitely the mango and sticky rice!

    Sundays only. Choose from an assortment of Thai dishes prepared by its members: pumpkin curry, fried plaintains/taro, & don't miss the BBQ station near the fruit/veggie stand. Yummy.

    Grew up in Thailand and this is the closest to Thai street food I've had since moving to the US. The food is great and the temple looks very pretty.
