Whether you sit down in the simple but clean table sections, or order by phone for delivery, the food is simply awesome. Great consistent flavors. And you can get it hot, mild or really hot! The egg drop soup is some of the best we have ever had. Must try this place soon!

I think my favorite thing I like about Tai San Chef is the fact that you can have a dinner that includes your choice of soup, an eggroll, entrée and chicken fried rice for around $8.99--great value! By the time I eat my soup and eggroll, I can only eat half of the dinner on my plate. Great service too!... More

Tai San encompasses Thai, Chinese and Japanese dishes, giving each area a place on the menu to shine. Give yourself several minutes to look over the many items on the large menu to decide...OK, order several and share with your table. Don't forget they have a special Hibachi room too! Make a reservation for that. No matter what we have... More

This restaurant has a very wide Chinese,Thai and Japanese menu, I'll say is something for everyone. Food is made just when you order it and is very tasty.

This was a wonderful dining experience! This is literally the best Asian restaurant in our area, and I would highly recommend visiting. It looks small and unassuming on the outside as it's near a strip mall, but please visit! The interior is very comfortable and welcoming. The host was very nice and polite and even opened the restaurant early for... More

We come here frequently because the food is always good, served hot and with a smile. Their dinner menu offers a large variety and includes a choice of soup, eggroll, entrée and fried rice--all for around $10.00. You can choose from Chinese or Thai dishes from the menu. They also have a fresh sushi bar and Japanese Teppanyaki for large... More

Large menu and quality dishes found here. Was the first place I found any Thai options locally but since have found more choices. I return often, though, just to get their homemade Hot Mustard Sauce (make sure it comes in little cups)--it's phenomenal with a different flavor than the standard stuff--I think a touch of vinegar. It's addictive!!
