My first experience at International Market was back in Middle School and I have been going back ever since..I'm almost 30! I love the food and I love the wonderful family that runs and owns the restaurant. When I lived closer, I would go

If you're down with the squid, just call ahead or let them know and they'll make it for you special. Squid with bamboo, basil and the curry broth. They can make it pretty hot if you like. I go here once a week and it never gets old. After Salathai closed down, this became my goto place for good thai food. Actually, I'm about to place on order with them now....hold on!

Pros: I come here for the Red Curry Squid, it's fantastical

Having just returned from Thailand less than two weeks before I ate here I can tell you this is the real deal. I fell in love with Thai cooking while there and have been looking for some authentic Thai since I returned.

I had the green curry chicken and it was as close to native Thai as there is. The taste was great and the only letdown was that it wasn't as killer hot as it is over there. No worries. I asked for some fresh Thai chili's and after adding them, hehe, I had to take a few out.

I had a sticky rice cake for dessert which was good, but there was no mango (out of season) which wasn't quite the same as sticky rice; I'd wait to have that again until there's mango.

The staff are all sweet, which is so typical of the Thai culture. They told me next time, just ask for what I want and they'll make it on the spot.

As for some older reviews I just read that were disappointed that food may have been in the steamers too long, I have news for you: that's exactly how it's done in Thailand. The food is prepped in the morning and then offered all day. I ordered right from the steamer tray and found it more than fine.

Why only four stars if I enjoyed it so much? hehe. How can you call a grocery store cafe a "five star restaurant"? I recommend it wholeheartedly, and I'd rather go someplace like the International Market than a five-star restaurant any day.

Pros: Great AUTHENTIC Thai food. Great price.

Cons: It's in a grocery store.

International Market is one of my favorite restaurants; I eat there a couple of times a week. I can get an excellent lunch for about $6. The food is consistenly good, and there is a very nice selection. It is hard to get good vegetables at many restaurants, but International Market has a wide selection of fresh cooked vegetables.

Cons: Hard to find parking places

The spicy coconut milk-curry chicken stick is OK but the broccoli noodle is bad. Some of the noodle are dehydrated ? maybe stayed too long in the serving tray. The Thai ice tea is too sweat.

My father has been going there since it opened. He took me for the first time when I was 4 and I have gotten the exact same thing ever since. The people are so friendly, it's in a hip neighborhood and the food is good and cheap. The spicy chicken sticks, vegetable egg rolls, fried rice, and bamboo shoots with chicken curry is the most amazing combo ever. And throw in a big bottle of papaya juice. It's the bomb.
Locals Only please.

I had been there many times before I stopped eating there. Everything seems to be made way long ago. They are all too sweet. Surely they have been sitting there for hours too. You can see from the edges of each tray. Nasty food.... don't recommend.... This place is still alive because it's located close to a university and everything is cheap. You guys better pay a little bit more for better food.

It had been years since I ate here, but I remembered it being really good, so I decided to try it again. I had read both bad and good reviews on it and decided to see for myself. Unfortunately, it was not as good as I remembered. In fact, the food looked gross. I had a hard time choosing anything because it looked like it had been sitting there for a long time. It wasn't horrible, but it definitly wasn't great. I got Sweet and Sour chicken and the sauce was so gooey and gross that I had a line of goo from the plate to my mouth. However, let me say that the Fried rice and egg rolls were really good, especially the fried rice! I would go there again, but only for the fried rice and egg rolls, definitly nothing else.

Pros: No wait, great fried rice, and egg rolls.

Cons: Bad food, 25 cents extra for drink refills, parking.

I chose this restaurant only because it had such a high rating - 9.5!! It turned out to be the worst Asian food I have ever experienced. The chow fun was soggy. Way too much sugar in every dish. The silver noodle dish had an odd taste, combination of sugar and vinegar. Yes it's cheap alright, but B-A-D.

The spicy curry chicken sticks (it's coconut milk-based) are amazing. Great place for both meat-eaters and vegetarians (hey- it's hard to find a good compromise!) Family owned, so support your local establishments!

Go to the International Market on Belmont Blvd. for the best Thai food in Nashville by Patty! Since 1975...the place to go for lunch or a quick dinner. Great food at a reasonable price.

Not the best thai food in the city but it is good and very fast. Market has a lot of different items for pretty good prices.

My family has been going there over 15 years and in the last 3 years, the quality seems to have really gone down. It is still a good place to get something to go quickly and reasonable. However,
we don't go as often because of the quality of food.

I have enjoyed eating here for years and while the food is very good, you have to watch the little old man because he tries to overcharge you every single time. In my experience, it has only been him but watch the cashier just in case
