We return to this restaurant often because the food is always delicious. The service is very efficient and the menu has a large variety of Thai dishes. They also serve very aromatic hot and iced teas. It is a pleasure to visit this establishment.

I have been there multiple times for dinner and we always enjoyed their food and service. A specialty of theirs is the tea-rolls, which they serve with a variety of filling-choices. Last time I ate a salad and was a little disappointed as it seemed to not be as fresh and pretty expensive for its size... nevertheless, I would return and will order another dish next time.

A wonderful gem of Amherst, Fresh Side has remained one of the few long operating restaurants in Amherst, which says a lot. The owner has her own unique take on Vietnamese. The food is simple and fresh, lots of veggies. Her chicken curry soup ls wonderful and there's a wide assortment of tea rolls (fresh spring rolls). We love the chicken pad thai rolls and the basic Vietnamese roll, and the basil leaf roll. The owner recently expanded with a liquor license as well.

Caught these guys for brunch recently and had their spicy Chicken salad sandwich on a baguette. Same stuff you find on the tea rolls of the same name. Can't beat it. They have a monopoly on spicy Chicken.

My wife and I are regulars here. There's a reason for that. With all the restaurants that come and go in Amherst, Fresh Side has stayed true to its name for a very long time now. The taste of Spicy Chicken Tea Rolls are on the lips of all Amherst denizens who are connaisseurs of fresh food. This time we had the chinese BBQ ribs along with some of the best Pad Thai in the region. Once an young upstart with a fresh idea, Fresh Side is now an Amherst institution. Should not be missed.....
