I love this place. My friends took me in here last month and I cant seem to get enough of their food. I am planning to take my family in here once in a while.

We went here last week, my friends and I, we really liked it here. Everything is beautiful even the dishes. I like how the staff is always checking on us.

Prompt, courteous service, great food, unbeatable prices, and friendly staff. It's always a pleasure to dine at Jasmine. When my family visits we always set aside an evening to go to Jasmine. We love it!

Was seated, then no one ever came to our table. So we got up and left. The cook was eating the main dining area. They were not busy at all. Third rate place.

I love this place. They have the best thai food hands down. My favorite is the panang chicken and tom yum soup...It's a must try.

This was me and my wife's first exp. with Thai. food. It was wonderful. We had the fried dumplings as an appetizer and Wanton soup. She ordered the seafood ta lay and I ordered the Duck Curry with a side dish of fried rice. It was the best fried rice I have had in a long time. Everything was great. My wife said the Hot tea was superb. I highly recommend this to anyone who is wanting to try Thai food for their first time.

Recently I was taken to Jasmine by a group of co-workers who insisted it was definitely worth the trip down 65 from our office near 100 Oaks. I had been by the building before, but always thought the restaurant must be yet another incarnation of "strip-mall Chinese," judging from the plain brick exterior.

Wrong on all counts. The interior sports nicely textured exposed brick walls, and low-slung bench tables like those in a sushi restaurant. The place was packed our first trip out??and given the dearth of restaurants in the area??is always a good sign.

Our service was fast and efficient, and nary a single error was made in anything. We passed everything around??highlights were the ginger tofu, the tom kai soup, and the spicy hung ray curry. Loved everything, and it was definitely a bargain for lunch at less than $10/per person. Will have to try the banana dessert on the return trip.

The only criticism I have would be that it will definitely take up 2+ hours to get in, eat and get back to work. Of course this was a noon??I'll have to try it at an off-peak time to see if the kitchen is a little speedier.

Cons: Makes for a 2-hour lunch.

My husband and I love Thai food and decided to try Jasmine for our weekly dinner date. I had combed through reviews here on Citysearch and thought that Brentwood *should* have a pretty discrimating crowd to judge ethnic cuisine. Guess not! The restaurant has a nifty atmosphere and the food presentation is beautiful. However, first we had to wait 15mn to order our dinner (the restaurant was half-full), then they forgot to bring me my drink, and finally our dishes were horrendous. Mine was described as spicy Asian noodles stir-fried with fresh vegetables; instead had a huge plateful of waterlogged egg noodles with minute shreds of soggy carrots and peppers, scraps of mushrooms, and some chicken, tossed in a spicy but otherwise tasteless sauce. No real flavor, just very hot. My husband had a dish billed as chicken with peas over noodles in peanut sauce... the peas were raw and the noodles were SPAGHETTI. Also, we tried the satay appetizer, which had the same peanut sauce as the one in my husband's dinner dish... the satay/peanut sauce was watery and sugary -sweet. Satay should be bold and spicy with the creaminess of peanut butter throughout.
I hate to pan a place, but this was absolutely awful. Soggy egg noodles and spaghetti do NOT belong in an Asian restaurant. The veggies and sauces had no flavor or substance at all. Don't be fooled by the fancy zip code... find a real Thai restaurant somewhere else!

Pros: Cool atmosphere, not too expensive

Cons: Food was absolutely atrocious, service poor

Food was good. But I got a surprise when I checked my credit card statement. They had overcharged me on the tips. There was a difference of 10% between what my actual bill + tips were vs. what they charged on my credit card. So next time you eat here, make sure that you check your credit card statement. I hope that it was just a data entry mistake.

I moved to Franklin from Michigan a couple of years ago and was very happy to discover Jasmine - a great replacement for my favorite Thai place up there. I've never eaten at the restaurant - only take out. But my wife and I have always been happy with the food. The menu offers a great selection. We haven't had a bad dish yet.

We've been coming here for 6 years, and we love it. the food is awesome, the service is friendly and efficient, but if you want to sit and talk a while, that's ok too. This is the best Thai food I've ever had. love , love it, love it!

Pros: Great food, nice restaurant, good service

Cons: None -only that more people are discovering it and now there are lines at lunch!

My husband and I are frequent visitors to Jasmine and they never fail to deliver FANTASTIC FOOD! The service is curteous, the place settings lovely and the food is fresh and well garnished. We adore Jasmine! Even on a quick lunch it feels like a "date" when we go there.

Pros: Delicious Fresh Food, White Tablecloths and Flowers

Cons: Paper Napkins

I recently moved from the west coast (Portland, OR) area where great ethnic food abounds. My fears of only finding ethnic food in the form of Taco Bell and Panda Express the South felt very real in my first few weeks here. I tried several Thai and chinese restaurants in the south (including Franklin/Brentwood) and west Nashville areas. Of 4 so far--this is BY FAR (far and AWAY) the best. So much so that I've gone back a second time. Thai food should be aromatic, spicy, colorful. It should satisfy the senses. Some places here are very "americanized" versions of Thai dishes. Jasmin isn't -- it covers all three points quite successfully. I've tried several dishes with only one that I wouldn't rate as "great"--that could be because I didn't order it with enough spice. Definitely try the Pad Ga Prao and make sure to try their "relish" fresh diced peppers in a vinegar-based sauce. It adds that extra kick.

Pros: Great food, great packing on to-go orders, excellent service

Cons: smaller sized portions than other comparable restaurants.

.

If you haven't tried Thai food before - this is the place to go! Their food is consistantly delicious with just the right amount of spice and flavor. Many other Thai places have a watered-down taste or thin sauces, but not Jasmines!

First time eating Thai - try Pad Thai or other noodle dish if you're apprehensive on the new cuisine. Since you'll definitely be back for more, other suggestions are the Tom Kha soup and Panang Curry. Simply delicious!

Pros: Amazing food!!

Cons: A little hard to find (it's by Publix, PetSmart & Rooms to Go)

Found this restaurant on city search last night and decided to make the hour trip to give it a try....it was WELL WORTH IT! The food was delicious and fresh and well made..the appetizers were great and the ambience and decor was perfect for the food and setting. The fresh spring rolls were great as well as the chicken spring rolls. The Pad ka prow with chicken was wonderful although we should have specified heat because it had no kick but was still so good! The Sizzling Talay was full of fresh delicious seafood with a chile basil sauce that had a smokey flavor almost..served on a sizzling cast iron platter...great presentation! The best part of the meal was the dessert...we got the Thai custard and sticky rice...it was typical sticky rice with coconut milk and an amazing custard which the waiter could not identify the contents of but was delicious nonetheless. We've already planned our next trip over. Give it a try!!! (The reviews made the "strip mall" sound seedy....as far as strip malls go it was nice and the building was not at all disconcerting at first view)

Pros: Delicious Thai food in Tennessee!!!

.

We have been dining at Jasmine at least once a month since the restaurant opened. Jasmine has the best Thai food that we have tried in the Nashville area. Not only is the food delicious--but the atmosphere is lovely as well. My husband's favorite dishes are Massaman Curry (it is on the dinner menu--but the staff is always willing to make a "lunch" sized plate of this curry at request) and Khao Soi. I like to try to order a different dish on each visit. The Hung Ray Curry is among my favorite dishes. We hope that Jasmine will be around for many years to come. Reservations for dinners on weekends is probably wise--as the word has spread of this wonderful restaurant.

This place has fantastic Thai food... After moving to Nashville from NYC, I was a bit frightened that I would never again experience great Thai, but this place has it....loved it! It's a great place for veggies, too! Don't worry, the prices are great...for two, look to spend $20-5.

Pros: Inexpensive, Prompt Seating, Good Atmosphere

This is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere we've been. It's the most unlikely place to find such, as it sits next door to a continually-going-out-of-business mattress place in a strip mall.

The food is excellent and emulates a fine dining experience for much, much less cost. Everything we've tried has been so good that it's hard to decide what to get. Great presentation and wonderful, is simple atmosphere.

Love it!

Jasmine is owned by Bobby Kornsuwan, well known among Nashville's Thai food aficionados for his connections with the 23-year-old Siam Cafe (owned by his in-laws, the Silpacharn family), then as the proprietor of the short-lived The King and I near Vanderbilt. He opened The Orchid on White Bridge Road in 1994, but a partner dispute led to his departure, so in 1998 he opened Siam Cuisine, also on White Bridge Road, with his in-laws.Chef Bobby Korsuwan and his wife's family, the Silpacharns, have been serving Authentic Thai Cuisine for a long time.

Bobby spent six months at Magnolias restaurant in Franklin, working under Emil LaBrousse, an expert practitioner of haute cuisine Francaise. While there, Kornsuwan kept his eye out for a location; ironically, the Cool Springs branch of The Orchid became available and in 2001 he opend Jasmine.

Entrees are familiar--red curry with basil leaf, hung ray curry, chicken/beef/ pork/seafood with garlic sauce--but they're consistently prepared with fresh ingredients and distinct flavors, and they're beautifully presented--another influence from Kornsuwan's Magnolias stint. In an effort to depart from what he calls the "sameness" of plates in Thai restaurants, each entree is accompanied by a vegetable and rice of the day, though diners can opt for plain steamed rice if they wish.

Fans of Thai food should dig deeper, into the section called Bobby's Specialties. Best bets are Kornsuwan's sparkling executions of Thai salads; the delectable pla pad cha, chunks of fish filet sauted with red curry paste; steamed chicken wrapped in minty pondan leaves; crispy shrimp in hot-sweet chili-tamarind sauce; and gai ob , marinated Cornish hen with sticky rice and spicy pureed mushrooms.

Jasmine is without a doubt Nashville/Cool Springs' best kept secret in the restaurant world. Nestled in between 2 other businesses of a strip mall, unassuming passers-by may never know what they are missing. Inside is a very ambient Thai food restaurant, complete with Thai style seating and decor, appropriate music, and a friendly staff.
Couples will enjoy the romantic feel of the restaurant and the quiet dining experience. Larger families and groups will have plenty of room to dine also.
As far as the food goes, I have yet to taste anything that comes close in comparison. The ingredients of each meal and appetizer complement one another perfectly and the presentation of each dish was a delight to look at.
Overall, I highly enjoyed Jasmine. For someone looking for a new favorite restaurant Jasmine is the best of the best!
10 out of 10!
