“Bad experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Bad Experience We ordered appetizers and our entree. After we were served our appetizers, the guest on the table next to us mentioned to their waiter that the entree is not theirs. The entree was then brought to us cold (Not This was not our entree. When we asked for the manager, the owner came to our table, not apologizing, saying what do we expect her to do. Instead of apologizing, she said that our waiter will have to pay for the food. This was not even our waitress fault, but the owner was rude and did not want to listen. Been to this restaurant many times, but this was the last. Owner was hateful and extremely rude .

“Good for dinner, but lunch portions are too small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Used to go here for lunch a lot, but I got tired of the small portion sizes. I ordered a dish with onions in it, and there were a few pieces of chicken, and way too many onions. I just don't get enough to eat, and it isn't cheap. I have been for dinner, and the portion size was at least double the lunch's.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Taste of Thai has been in the area for years. Recently built new location near the old. Stopped in for lunch. Restaurant was packed. Sat in the bar, no problem. Bar man was the waiter. Seemed to know little or nothing about the menu, including the Thai names for lunch specials. Ordered the lemon grass soup, AWFUL. Looked like dish water, smelled like dirty feet. Balance of meal was ok, but just ok.

“The best Thai food in Knoxville!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is a great little Thai place with fast, friendly service and absolutely excellent food. The portions are large, and the ingredients are fresh. The atmosphere is very nice (the restaurant recently moved from another site to this new building). The beef salad is the best I have ever had! I recommend this place highly!!!

“Best Thai Restaurant in many states”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We live in Asheville, NC and I only wish we had a Thai restaurant this good. With probably 5 to 7 Thai opportunities none of them are as delicious as Taste of Thai is. Our go to meal for comparison is Tom Yum soup and Pad Thai both w/ shrimp. TofT was incredible and a 10 out of 10. We are well travelled and have experienced Thai restaurants in every state and city we have travelled in, but T of T of Knoxville wins countrywide so far.

Highly recommend and can't wait to return. Maybe two hours is not too far to go for an incredible Thai meal.
