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.

Was hesitant about "Best" but it really was very good and we would go back next time we are in the area. I admit that I am a Thai food snob.. The Panang and Spicy Duck were both very good. Skip the fried rice as it was very blah. While we did not have the Pad thai, those next to... More

We discovered this place on tripadvisor and although difficult to find it was a delightful experience with good food. Very tasty Thai food in this small Maine town.

We ate here about three years ago and loved it. Staying here for several days, we decided to give it a try again. Food is still very good. We had pan fried dumplings, shrimp pad Thai and cashew nuts with shrimp, both medium heat. Everything tasted fresh and very good. Service was excellent. Love the decor.

How fortunate this small town is to have such marvelous Thai food available. The restaurant itself is small and nothing special, but the service is excellent and the food is great. Try any of the dishes with duck -- it's a real treat!

Tucked away behind an historic home on Main St. in Damariscotta, is a tiny, garden side restaurant with aromas so tantalizing they draw visitors in from the street. Best Thai is a surprise in a town known for its typical seafood and pub fare. We've recommended this to many visitors and they're always happy with the service and the food.... More

We eaten lunch and dinner at Best Thai and always enjoyed our meal. My wife is partial to the duck dish and I must admit it is very good. Service is always top notch and with a smile. I've seen some mixed reviews of late but I have not experienced anything that disappoints me. Maybe I've been lucky, but I'll... More
