If you are a Thai Food Fan, you will surely enjoy Phensri-Thai in North Fort Myers. We have lived less than a mile from this Thai restaurant for years and yet never noticed it until recently. A typical hole in the wall that was not typical at all. You can’t see inside the restaurant from the outside. Windows are tinted and have blinds. It’s dark and all you see is the neon sign with it’s name. The restaurant is in the Orange Grove Plaza near Publix and it blends in almost too well. As we stepped in, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was actually packed. Not line waiting packed, but full. It was like a secret club inside, everyone was in on it, except us. Our waiter had a smile on his face the entire time and was very pleasant and willing to answer our questions about the menu. We are not Thai Food Fans but are foodies and the food was oh so yummy. The customer service was on point, setting was cultural, cute small bamboo bar and a built in wall display that resembled an altar or ode to the Thai culture.
We played it safe and had the Thai Fried Rice. A little sweeter than regular fried rice. The chicken soup with rice noodles is a must try. The chicken satay with peanut butter sauce was very filling. We will be a bit more adventurous next time because we will most definetly visit Phensri-Thai again.
