Best Thai in middle TN.
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!
First time Thai was great..
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.
Not at all what you would expect from the exterior..
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.
Neat Atmosphere but Horrible Food.
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!
