Excellent food.

We brought a large group in somewhat late on a Sunday, and they were very accomodating, efficient, and the food was really, really good. My Tom Kha (chicken soup in coconut milk) was the best I've had; same for my orange chicken. I don't think that anyone in my party was disappointed, they were... read more

We went here twice in two weeks, because the food was so good and the atmosphere comfortable. A real neighborhood place! If the weather's good, you can sit outside at one of the four tables in the back. Basic Thai, but that's really fine - and the waitstaff is very competent and attentive.

We had takeout from Thai - it was OK. The Pad Thai was actually pretty good. The chicken and broccoli and beef dish were watery and without much flavor. I don't think I'll go back.

It was a gamble going there only because we had 4 adults over 40, 1) 21 year old, 2) 18 year Olds and 2 children under 10. How to make everyone happy was the challenge for last night's dinner. The older adults we all Thai lovers but the kids wanted their typical familiar foods they are used to. We went... More

Very easy going and full of great flavors restaurant. Many would overlook it but it's a little hidden gem. Service would need a bit of attention, but not too bad over all. Nice to see that owners have hired English speaking servers. The waitress we have had was very polite and nice, but forgot my Jasmine tea. Food was really... More

This surprise find in the heart of Damariscotta is worth the visit. The service is exceptional and all of the dishes we had (salads, vegetable roll and fish entrees) were very good. Try sitting outside under the Peach tree (yes, peach tree...who new?) and enjoy the breeze (but have some "OFF" ready just in case the breeze dies).

Best Thai is a very good Thai restaurant. Entrees are $10-15. I especially like the curry, Pad Thai, Pad Se ow. They are very good with getting the amount of spice right. So if you like it hot or very mild they have always hit it right for me. I spend 4 months a year in Thailand and this food... More

Tiny but tasty, the best thai restaurant serves you delicious food at a speedy pace. Though the interior is not the most impressive, the food does more than make up for it. One can choose from spicy curry, delectable soups or delightful appetizers all with fresh ingredients. Best Thai is the hidden gem of Damariscotta.

The Thai food, based on our experience in Thailand, is authentic and every dish is fresh. It is hard to find but well worth looking. Simple ambiance but great food.
