VERY good Thai food, very consistent

I often go here for lunch with coworkers. I've NEVER had a bad meal! You really can't go wrong! The food is inexpensive and always cooked to perfection.

We began with tofu triangles the first day we went there, and steamed butterflies the very next day. Over the two days, we had a Massaman Curry, Crispy Jumbo Shrimp with Orange, Seafood Pad Thai, and, for me, the highlight. Ginger Crispy Duck. All four of the dishes were excellent, excellent. But the duck ------------------ outstanding. The duck skin was... More

As any Asian will tell anyone, there is a more than noticeable difference between 'dumplings' and 'potstickers'. Thai Taste served Asian grocery store 'machine' stamped potstickers as marinated pork and shitake stuffed. When I asked for the difference, the manager indicated 'the way it is prepared'. You can buy a bag of frozen 40 potstickers for $6 at any Asian... More

This is a rather small, cozy very Thai decorated place. The food is terrific - especially like the Steamed Butterfly appetizer. One can order degree of heat in the food. And the staff is always friendly. We take all of our out-of-town visitors to Thai Taste.

This restaurant had a pleasant, cozy atmosphere and comfortable spacing of tables. After a few moments wait, we were promptly seated. Vegetarian and gluten free options were available on the menu. I was impressed with the quality and freshness of the soup and the artfully prepared appetizers which were a refreshing treat for the tastebuds. Service was evenly paced for... More

I and my family have been big fans of Thai Taste and have even gone to Pom's other restaurants as well. When the restaurant was managed by Pom, we saw her regularly and service was prompt and pleasant. She was always hard working and obviously very concerned about quality. The food has always been excellent. Unfortunately, despite having a talented... More

I hadn't been back to Thai Taste in a bit and it turned out to be a good choice for our group. All were very pleased with our meals and the friendly service is exceptional. I had the mango curry, which I hadn't tried before and loved it. There was enough left for a light dinner the next day. The... More

I've been coming here since Pom first opened Thai Taste in 2002 and have never - EVER - left here less than 100% satisfied. For starters, Pom is one of the most impressive business owners (never mind a lovely woman) I've ever had the pleasure to know. All her restaurants are staffed with friendly and professional service - all of... More
