One of the best and unique tasting restaurants in Carbondale! I frequent at least once a week. Great lunch time prices and portions. Food always tastes fresh and staff is always friendly.

The food is always great. The service is always good. It is one of the few places that every dining experience is always a good one. Their vegetable soup and pineapple fried rice are phenomenal.

I've been coming here since 2006 and it's the best Thai food I've had. Much better than the San Antonio Thai Taste.

Have good food and good service with the exception of the hot and sour soup Way to much vinegar. Need to change the recipe as it had been this way for a while.

Right on the main strip, we didn't know what to expect as we visit a great Thai restaurant in the Chicago suburbs. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff were courteous, friendly and professional. The menu had plenty to choose from. Overall, a nice experience.

Very good egg drop soup and had the chicken satay for an appetizer. The chicken had a coating on it instead of just being grilled but tasted great with the peanut sauce. Excellent cucumber and onion salad in vinegar. Had the chicken pad Thai. It was tasty but ordered it spicy #3 and it's was not very spicy. Excellent lunch

Thai Taste is always a must when my husband and I come home to visit. We love it so much, we had to have have a few of their dishes at our wedding rehearsal, which they graciously made an exception since they don't cater. You must get the hot wings. They are unlike anything you've ever had. My favorite dish... More

I've been going to Thai Taste for roughly 4 years now and have never once had a complaint. It has become a part of my weekly routine and often go there at least twice a week. The pineapple fried rice is my favorite dish which contains fried rice, green onion, egg, cashews, chicken, and a variety of spices. If you... More

This is a great place for Thai food and you have to request how much heat you want in your dish. On Monday and Friday at lunch they have their hot and sour soup which is excellent. For dinner they always have that soup and many more available. It's fast and good.
