My husband and I have lived here for 2 years and just decided to try Thai Taste. I am so happy we did, yet so sad we waited so long. We had the egg rolls for an appetizer which were delicious! The dinners are enough to eat for two meals and wonderful! For dessert we had the fried cheesecake. The... More

I asked them to keep out fish sauce from pad thai & they said chef insisted on fish sauce. Mediocre one flavor-oily taste to other dishes. Thai-D in Marion best Thai food in area.

Thai taste has good, authentic Thai food, but a limited menu, especially when compared to other Thai restaraunts in the area, namely Thai D. The food is rather expensive for what it is, and it's a small, usually crowded space. Wait times for tables are usually wrong. Over all, good, but not stellar.

Have been here many times. Have improved a lot since they first opened. Good Tom Yum soup, good Pad Thai. Make sure that you ask for the spice level that suits you, 4 is a little spicy not too hot, 8 is really pretty spicy.

This place is perfect on all sides. There is so much incredible, authentic, affordable food. I feel like my ticket should cost twice what it does. Delicious, I'm coming here all the time

this place introduced me to Thai food and is now the standard by which I judge other Thai food. Pad Thai, Pad Woonsen, Chicken satay.... it's all fantastic. Also, you can't beat the lunch prices.

Food's always good and the menu is reasonably priced. The place can get a little crowded as it's not a very big restaurant.

Been coming here for lunch at least once a week for years. Dinner on occasion. Food is consistently excellent. Reasonably priced. Menu has just enough variety. Have tried it all and can recommend everything. Wait staff are jovial and seem to genuinely enjoy working here and are a big reason we keep coming back. Acoustics can be a little loud... More

Thai Taste is great...my favorite dish is Pad Kratium Prig Thai. You can get it for lunch or dinner...speaking of lunch, they get you in and out quickly and the lunch menu is a great bargain. All of their apps are great, as are the Thai iced coffees. When I have a cold, I always crave their soups, which are... More
