It is apparent that the Chef makes his food with love, and the ambience almost transports you to a small family restaurant in Italy. A true hidden gem.

About the restaurant
We are a family with a rich Thai heritage that has been passed down for generations. Our love for Thai food and culture inspired us to create a fusion of traditional Thai dishes with a modern twist. Growing up in a Thai household, we were taught to appreciate the balance of flavors and the use of fresh ingredients in our cooking. Our menu features an array of dishes that combine Thai spices and flavors with other cuisines. Our goal is to showcase the beauty and complexity of Thai cuisine while infusing it with modern and creative flavors. We are excited to share our passion for food with you and hope you enjoy our unique fusion creations.

Our restaurant is located at 4034 W Kennedy Blvd right next to The British Shop and in the same plaza as Sucre and Chicken Salad Chick. Place a to-go order for your office or dine in with us in our cozy dining room!

We're looking forward to serving you in South Tampa, Florida.

Our first visit to Paul's did not disappoint! Sky, our most accommodating and cheerful server, helped us choose our sharable appetizer and entrees, each a compliment to the next. Happy we had a reservation for this jewel of a restaurant to which we will most certainly return!

We love our local neighborhood restaurant!!! We are so welcomed by everyone every time that we walk thru the door. The family owned business and their staff is always so friendly and helpful. And the food is always consistently great. And I love that they can tweak anything for you- you can order some things that are not on the menu, ask for a side of something, etc. Nothing like having such a great place less than 5 minutes from our house.

One of the best and most unique dining experiences I have had in years. Definitely the best food at the beach. Run, don’t walk to this restaurant and have yourself a wonderful culinary experience. The service was just as top-notch as the food.

About the restaurant
PSOMI literally translates to “bread” but its essence is so much more. Psomi refers to the best bite, the “choice” piece, the crumb that everyone at the table fights over. Whether you’re a local or just passing through- Psomi is more than just an incredibly delicious, beautiful bakery + eatery, it’s a place to call home.
