We celebrated my brother's birthday at Thai Taste and everyone loved the place: good friendly service, kids friendly atmosphere and amazing food!

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

Me and my husband came to Maine for a day trip and I found this place to be ranked as one of the top 5 Thai places in Maine. Being Thai food lovers it's no doubt we decided to come here. And then I realized my mistake. The food sucked so bad that I coulsnt even eat. I took tom... More

Let me begin by saying that several years ago we hosted a Thai exchange student. She loved her nation's cuisine and so we often looked for it when out. Rarely did it meet her expectations. Sadly, she's back in Bangkok because in Thai Taste I think we may have finally found one that would meet her standards. It certainly did... More

Based on having had orange chicken in a Chinese restaurant, I ordered the Orange Seafood. There were nice large scallops and shrimp, but I didn't like the sauce at all. Had I read the menu more closely, I would have seen that the Thai Taste (and maybe all Thai restaurants?) version of orange sauce is predominantly catsup. I didn't like... More

We ate at the Thai Taste 2/15/14, and while the food was very good, the service was terrible. We have been going to the Thai Taste for many years as a treat before going to the local theaters, and are a member of their restaurant loyalty program. Our experience has always been positive except for our last two times in... More

This was my first time to one of the Pom Thai restaurants. We started off with the steamed butterflies which were filled with chicken and peanuts. The fried pieces of garlic on top made them a perfect appetizer. I also had a noodle dish and the waiter was happy to make the substitutions I was hoping for. The owner even... More

This was our third visit and the food and service was splendid. We had the Ginger Duck and were so pleased that the preparation was perfect. Our last visit was disappointing but the first and today's were a joy. Maybe the chef was having a bad day before, but all is back to being a restaurant that we have put... More

Thai food can have a wide gamut of flavors and with so many different sauces and spices it can sometimes be difficult to balance. But Thai taste always pays attention to detail. I've ordered the Nam Sod at other restaurants before and the salad is easily ruined by too much fish sauce, but at Thai taste it was the perfect... More

My wife and I have patronized Thai Taste in South Portland, Maine, weekly for over 10 years. Calm atmosphere, great presentation of meals, respectful staff, excellent value, but most important, always fresh ingredients and good flavor, and spiced to taste.
