Hidden gem!

I've worked about a block from this place for 11 years but never would have noticed it if not for a local with knowledge of the place. The owner/ server/ hostess and her husband/ cook were the only workers. There was only one other party when we visited. The decor is clean, cute plants on each... read more

Very nice staff and good Thai food without having to drive too far. The tom ka gai soup was so good, we had to order more. All dishes were made to order, and they were very good about customizing ingredients and spices (how spicy/hot). We ate in, and had no problem with speed of service or for being delivered.

We've been here a couple of times, and it seems to be getting worse. The prices are high for small portions, and the taste is average (some really good, and others bad). Our Crispy Tamarind Duck was mostly dry and tough. The menu said "with vegetables", but all we got was garnish. Our curry dish was alright - nothing special.... More

thaimarket, Owner at ThaiMarket, responded to this review

We have kept the same menu price for 5 years, only adjusting some items by 1-2 dollars. Curry Puff is an appetizer, and thus is relegated to an appetizer-size. The duck is described as crispy; 'dry' should come as no surprise. The limited amount of vegetables is simply to garnish the main event, which is the duck itself. We even... More

This is one of the best Thai restaurants on the North Shore. The food is consistent and often made with fresh local in season vegetables. They have one of the best calamari appetizers I have every had.

Thai Market should be on everyones list to try if you want fabulous Thai food prepared by a knowlegable chef/owner. We normally order their food to go, but have enjoyed a dinner or two there. We just finished eating the best Tamarind Duck we have ever had! Their daughter took our " to-go" order and suggested a delicious Poached Salmon... More

The Thai Market is one of my go to restaurants in Marblehead. The Thai family that runs the restaurant is fantastic and the husband is a very talented chef. I go here regularly and always try different dishes. I havent been disappointed with one yet. They seem to have difficulty maintaining staff so if you eat at the restaurant the service could...

I ordered the drunken man noodle dinner and it was so spicy I couldn't eat it. I've had this at other places it was only mildly spicy. But i could not eat this, my mouth was on fire. They were nice about it and made me another dish that was less spicy, but the service took forever, and there was... More

Great place, plenty of parking. If you like Thai food, this is some of the best around north shore. Menu was great, staff was very nice, and friendly.

I love Thai food and I had the freshest spring rolls I have ever had here. I ordered take-out and the delivery man was not your typical delivery guy. He was a well dressed older Thai gentleman and a nice car. He was so smiley and polite and on time. He seemed so surprised when I gave him a tip.... More
