At first I was t sure about the taste. Spicy food is my thing but from a different country IDK! Come here with friend and everyone enjoyed it! My taste buds were off the hook. I tried the Spicy noodles with chicken and the Yellow cold tea (can't recall the name of it). Small place but overall fm great food.

I had the fresh spring rolls, and the wrap was a bit dry as if they had been sitting out for some time. Pretty tasty and worth getting. I also had the sukiyaki soup, which I normally love, but it didn't have the taste or complexity that I get here in my town of Dallas. I was not impressed with... More

I have been a regular at this restaurant for decades. I dine in as well as take out. Gets busy on the week-ends so we go early or do take out. I met the owners and one of them is from Thailand. They go to Los Angeles for many of the items they use in their restaurant. They have a... More

Have been there with a girlfriend and my fiancé. Curry tastes very good. Very good price compared with the nice dining environment provided. Highly recommend (but not for Chinese food)!

Had vegetarian Thai food, inspire of informing the steward not to prepare hot food, the food was very spicy. When called, they had no courtesy to replace the same with normal food. Restaurant ambience is good, but what is the point if the food is not as you require. Shall not recommend anyone to visit such place.

Husband and I visited Taste of Thai after a fun filled day at the zoo. Found the restaurant on our way back to the Highway and we weren't disappointed!!! Our server was adorable, so attentive as well as super quick at bringing our food out. We ordered the Pad Thai and Garlic pepper Chicken with brown rice. Both dishes were... More

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, so we were just hoping for great food and not much else. We lucked out - he food Was fantastic! Plus, we enjoyed a really lovely decor with white tablecloths, and very attentive service. The Pad See-iw was one of the best we've ever had and the curry was to die... More
