A family affair with a menu that keeps expanding for each year they have been in town. Lovely people with good food and some really great dishes like the crispy fish!

The service is excellent and the food is always delicious! Best Thai uses fresh ingredients and the food isn't overly sweet like some Thai restaurants. The prices are reasonable as are the portions. You can get take-out which is always prepared quickly (nice when you're ordering a quick lunch). Wonderful food, nice selection of dishes and awesome service; no wonder... More

Mouthwatering and reasonable. Huge variety of dishes, everything made fresh. We never miss it on a trip to Damariscotta and they also do take-out.

I usually don't enjoy Asian inspired food, but I found this thai food to be pretty good! This was my first time trying thai food. My family often orders takeout from Best Thai Restaurant and often says how delicious it is. This time around I finally tried the takeout we ordered. The restaurant itself was very cute. It had Christmas... More

I organized a picnic for two friends last evening before a chamber music concert at Round Top farm. I ordered ahead: fried wonton, thai salad with peanut sauce and ginger crispy duck. It was more than enough for three and tasty. As noted by others, the sauces offered were sweet. So I suggest going to Rising Tide Coop grocery and... More

We really wanted to like this place, because it came so highly recommended by reviewers. Meh. A lot of Thai food has a pinch of sugar in it. This had way more than that. The sauces and dips are so filled with cornstarch, it feels like Chinese restaurants in the 60's. Spring rolls are fresh but dry. There were no... More

It was my first time having Thai, I found it to be very fresh and tasty. I ordered a seafood dish that was medium spice, just spicy enough, I could still taste the flavor of the food. The wait staff was very good and the food was delivered very quickly. I will be going back soon.
