This little Thai restaurant is tucked away in the corner of a run-down strip mall, but it has the best Thai food in Birmingham! I'm not exactly sure, but I believe it is owned and run by a Thai family, which is probably why their food is so good and authentic. I've been to Taste of Thailand with my husband... More

I love this hidden restaurant! I've had most of the dishes on the menu and every one was as good and usually better than I've had elsewhere. I prefer the sushi here to anywhere in town. This is the perfect place for a special occasion or a quiet, romantic date.

This Thai restaurant is off the beaten path for the "in" restaurants, but you will NOT be sorry you searched it out! It is a long-time staple in town, over 20"years. Very authentic food plus white tablecloths and napkins but NOT the prices to match. I particularly like the coconut soup, curry dishes, and Pad Thai. This is my very... More

Unfortunately this place has declined in quality, service and value. The soup which supposedly was flavored with lemongrass tasted as though they just poured lemon juice into a broth. The service was terrible. Wait-staff never once checked on us, requiring us to aggressively " flag down " server for anything we needed. Food truly was severely undercooked, tepid, bland, and...

I have eaten at T of T many times over the years. After it opened, I sang its praises to many a person. One time after eating there with me, my mother wrote a very complimentary letter to the restaurant. For years, they kept it on a table under one of the acrylic tabletops. Prior to this recent visit, I... More

This is our go to restaurant for dates nights. Our favorites are the Chicken Musumun and the Chicken Panang. We also get some of the more common sushi dishes, the Rock and Roll, The Roll Tide, California Roll, they are always fresh and yummy. The staff is always great and food comes out quickly. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We stopped here for lunch. We were greeted and seated quickly. Orders taken and food served in a timely manner. BUT... I order hot and received Thai Hot, another order was suppose to be Thai Hot and it was only Hot. The food was still good and as we really like Hot food it wasn't too big of an issue... More

Having eaten at Taste of Thailand over a dozen times, I have always enjoyed my meals here. The chicken Tom Kah is the best this side of the Indian Ocean. Friendly, locally owned, clean.

It is rare that I am a full one and half stars from the average rating for a restaurant (either high or low) but this experience was at most three stars for me. From the minute we walked in, the experience went down hill... A hostess told us to wait a minute to be seated. After two to three minutes,... More

I ordered takeout which included three curry dishes and rice. As I was taking my order, the owner grabbed my order of rice and said that it was too much. It was meant as a reprimand to the server, not me. She went back to the kitchen and apparently poured some of the rice back into a larger pot. I... More
