We have just received our 1st award in our 1st year being in business that recognizes the quality, freshness & authenticity of our made-to-order Thai Cuisine in our Thai Cafe located right here inside our grocery store.
Our secret: we grow our own herbs & spices here at the store.
SJ’s International Food Market is a unique, market-style grocery store and Thai Restaurant located in Dunedin, Florida. Som & Joe opened SJ’s International Food Market & Thai Restaurant in April of 2016.
There has been and will be additional major improvements to the store and we intend to continuously increase our inventory selection as well as expanding our Thai Menu for Dine-In, Carry-Out and Delivery.
We grow our own herbs and spices right out back so we can cook with the freshest ingredients possible in our authentic Thai Restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. We are currently adding a Boba Tea and Fresh Smoothie Counter that should be completed around October 1st.
We will be almost doubling in size so we can carry a larger selection of international items to satisfy more cultures and cuisines. We’ll also be offering a multitude of imported beers, wine and sake (and of course some domestic beers as well).
Check out our reviews and pictures on Facebook then come by and sample any one of our four different types of curries, all made from scratch & made to order with the freshest ingredients possible, some of which we grow right out back behind the building. 80% of the produce we use and sell is locally grown by small scale farmers where it comes straight from the garden directly to our shelves. Most dishes have the option of adding beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, tofu or vegetarian (vegan can be accomodated for most dishes).
Our mission is to provide our customers with a unique experience like no other store you have been to before, all while maintaining foods from around the world!
A few other exciting events we offer are FREE Thai Cooking Classes every Saturday (must sign up in advance) and soon we will be adding a free Tie Dying event for kids & adults alike where everyone can learn how to make their own tie-dyed shirt.

The food is on point. And the market is well stocked. I like that they had some grab and go prepared foods as well as the kitchen menu. Also a few tables for sitdown service. Good smells. Good tastes. Noodles. Fun.
The state pad Thai I’ve had in years! And the papaya salad is so good. Lots of variety in the market as well. Clean place and nice people!
Super SUPER genuine kind personable owners. Don’t know what I will do when the sticky rice and mango is no longer in season. Hopefully chef will make another delish dessert/plate. I can NOT wait to do the cooking classes on Saturdays. Need a couple surgeries BUT after that I plan on receiving any and all they are willing to teach. I wish this lovely hidden gem lots and lots of happiness, growth & prosperity. (Eeek on my way to get what I just ordered) Oh I didn’t even touch upon the quality from products used to preparation to pricing can NOT be beat.
What an incredible market and Thai restaurant. They made us for amazing vegan dishes and also very delicious spring rolls ? the owner was incredibly kind and is really excited about growing the vegan market in this region ?
I am so happy they are in Dunedin! They now only have Asian groceries, but Thai food cook to order! It is super fresh, they serve the main Thai dishes to satisfy your cravings. I’m excited to try their noodle soup, I’m guessing it’s only served on certain days since it’s not on menu. I will shop here, instead of going all the way to St. Pete. It’s perfect, so glad it’s close to home. I have a feeling they will be adding and upgrading more. The day we had a lunch, and artist was painting the store front. The customer service is outstanding.
First time I ate here was today. Very friendly and food was amazing!!! Lots to choose from in the market area too. I will be going here more often.
The food here is yummy. I tried the green curry and pad thai, both were very good. The flavors were different from typical dishes at most Thai restaurants.. somehow more wholesome and fresh, like a home cooked meal, without being overly sweet or salty. It’s like your friend’s mom, who cooks really well, wanted to open a little eatery and then decided to set up shop in the back of a market.. Very unassuming, but so on point. I hope they do well so I can keep coming back!
The most amazing food and friendly staff! I enjoyed the red curry and Thai tea for lunch and will return soon.
I finally found THE best Thai food in Florida – after searching for 16 years!!!! I just discovered that this market now has fresh Thai food. Oh. My. Goodness, the red curry was soooo good. My mouth has been happy all day!
Great market awesome food they have a small eating area but I take my food to go. food is made to order so Will have to wait a few but great market look around. friendly staff and have cooking classes.
Warning: tofu fried rice is addicting, with the sweet and spice sauce it is by far my favorite meal. The staff is great and their Veggies and fruit is always fresh and priced right. I always ask for recommendations, of new things to try and I am never disappointed. I have tried a new fruit, vegetable or desert every week for the last couple months. I highly recommend venturing through the isles as you wait for your food.
Love this place! Unique gem right in Dunedin. Great fresh food and grocery items. The oweners are friendly and love what they do.
This was some if the best Thai food I have had recently. It was cooked fresh and ready to go in 15 minutes for a very reasonable price. The store is very interesting and has unique items, everyone was very nice and helpful. I will definitely be going back.
This is authentic cuisine. I had the red curry with Tofu and fried spring rolls. It was so full of flavor and very comforting. Thank you!
Found this little Gem while in a Tampa !! I am sure glad I did !! Hands down the best Thai food I ever had. Made fresh to order with fresh ingredients . I has the Red Chicken Curry , and Papaya Salad . It was full of flavor and so delicious . I will stop there every time on my travels to Tampa now.

Went for a cooking class and I’m hooked with this place and the people that work here. Food is excellent. People now are like family. Looking for any kind of fresh veggies,noodles,rice,spices they have it or can get it for you. If you just want a dinner to eat there or take out you can’t go wrong. Everything is made fresh. Go in and make friends.

Very nice store… give them a try they have many types of Asian, Latino and Mediterranean foods.
Such a delight to have found this place! Best pad thai around. Super spring rolls and working on the rest of the menu. Free cooking classes every Saturday. They are worth a try, you won’t be disappointed. Friendly and helpful staff with a CLEAN restaurant. Respectful and caring.
Give them a try, you won’t be sorry.
I was in need of some Chinese cooking wine. I looked for an oriental market and found this one. When we went in to the store we were greeted by Som. She is the owner. She said they have only been open a few weeks. They are the new owners and will soon be offering FREE COOKING CLASSES. I have attended 5 of the 6 classes. Having a great experience and I’m making delicious food. The produce is always fresh and the store is very clean.
I ordered ground pork Larb and it was very tasty! Made to order with fresh ingredients. I am a huge kimchi fan so grabbed a container of their homemade kimchi and it did not disappoint. Fantastic service as well. Looking forward to returning.
Love your store! Yummy fresh rolls and Thai curries yesterday! Jeanette made the most delicious cabbage rolls and babganoush
Attention all Yelpers in Pinellas County. You’ve got to check out SJ’s international Foods off of 580 and Cashman. It’s an Asian market that makes real authentic Thai food that will knock your socks off. If you want Tom Yum or Cocoanut nut milk soup or Pad Thai, or summer rolls. The selections are for real and oh so delicious. They also have freshly made Kim Chee and get this real Humus also. Son and Joe are the owners and they really explain everything how the market runs and what they have to offer. It’s also real clean and all the food is freshly prepared. So what are you wait for. Checking it out NOW. Thanks Son and Joe for a wonderful experience. Until next time.
The owner let me cut my own holy basil in the garden behind his shop because they don’t have any in the freezer. What a caring, customer-oriented he is indeed! One thing I wish they’d add is Thai seasoning powder named Rosdee (ผงรสดี) and some fresh chives (กุ้ยช่าย) that’d be awesome! ? Thanks a lot for your fantastic service!
Just bought some Thai basil to make pad grapow chicken today and it turned out amazing. The Thai basil was so fresh and tasty! Love this place everything is so good and the owner is so friendly and helpful!
they got that FULL ZONE shit going on everything neat as hell thats how I used to have cosmetics.
No, it’s on corner of Overcash and 580 in Dunedin next to Papa Johns pizza. Fabulous new owners and fabulous food to go!
My husband just popped in there to get get some Thai basil and told me to watch for the classes on here. Saw this pics of the shelves and WOW! Can’t wait to be more regular, that’s some packed shelves!
Today was my first trip to the store. My daughter and I enjoy our adventure outing. Everyone here was very helpful and nice. The items we bought were very good and we love it. I am glad to have a store like this near home so I don’t have to drive far to shop for my special dinners.
The new owners and staffs are very friendly,kind,nice and helpful. I planned to cook for my family today and stop by at store. I got all my stuffs I need with good price. If you looking for fresh, clean and excellent products from Asia or Middle East, I recommend this store. They got everything you need and they’ve good quality products and price. If I could I would give them 10 stars.
Wow, OCD HEAVEN!!!
