Jasmine Thai in Brandon is a totally different experience from Jasmine Thai on Dale Mabry. I don’t think the places even have the same owner because the Brandon location has its own website. The Brandon location happens to be one of my favorite Thai places in town. Service is always prompt and food has always been excellent on all my visits. The restaurant has a very quiet atmosphere, even answering your cell phone feels like an unwritten taboo. I probably wouldn’t take many friends, but instead choose this place for a date or for a single visit.
Usually the place is not too packed and getting a seat is not too hard. During lunch they have a three course meal where you get soup, your entree, and some dessert for under $10. For Dinner prices go up a few dollars, but for the most part the meal stays under $10. I normally run the bill up a little higher because I love their Chicken Coconut Soup ($2.95) and it is quite hard to resist it. Their Thai Tea is also of good quality, but because of the price of Thai Tea at restaurants ($1.95 here) I usually save my Thai Tea cravings for visits to The Wat Thai Temple on Sundays ($1 Thai Tea).
Chicken Coconut Soup
Chicken Pad Thai
Their Chicken Pad Thai ($9.95) is almost always perfect and they give you a large portion as well. I never leave this place hungry. They also handle to-go orders well and quality is not effected if you are in rush and can’t dine-in. They have a handful of desserts and my favorite choices are Coconut Ice Cream, Crunchy Banana Coins, and Jasmine’s Banana (Banana Coins with Coconut Ice Cream).
