Good Service and Good Thai Cuisine

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.

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.

Best Thai is one of our favorite restaurants and so we eat there often. Family-run by Thai natives, it is always delicious. Our Thai daughter in law from Bangkok declares it authentic and gives a thumb's up! We have visited to Thailand....this restaurant matches the very good family style restaurants there. Moderately priced, fresh ingredients, friendly servers, and Singha beer,... More

Made reservations for Mother's Day for a late lunch. The service was excellent, the waitress friendly and welcoming, and the food tasty and moderately priced. The signs posted in the restaurant asking for payment with either a check or cash in lieu of a credit card was a bit odd. Regardless, the Thai waitress said we could use our debit... More

We have one criticism of this restaurant, there are signs everywhere asking customers to pay cash instead of using credit/debit cards almost making travelers feel guilty. Credit cards are a way of life, people don't carry lots of cash on their travels, the notices are stupid. That aside we enjoyed a very tasty Thai meal that was great value and... More
