“Great Asia food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Taste just like I remember when I was stationed overseas....and they'll make it as hot and spicy or mild as you like. Too good for words! A hidden little treasure….

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

I travel as often as possible to eat at Taste of the World. I live in Woodstock, VA and found Taste of the World through AAdvantage Dining. I love the restaurant and the service. Once you have been there a few times the waiters are very good at remembering you. Only get Thai Hot if you REALLY like your food HOT!

“Don't Hurry for the Curry!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

This restaurant gets good reviews so I will bow to those that have sampled its broader offerings and suggest that it is good.

As for the curry - don't waste your time or money. I decided to try Taste of the World after getting disillusioned with the other local Herndon Indian restaurants but boy, do they look good by comparison. I ordered a lamb and a chicken dish. The lamb looked like tinned irish stew - a healthy smattering of brown lumps of meat in what could only be described as a mildly spicy gravy. Not a vegetable in sight. The chicken was a full breast doused in another gravy like sauce, this one a little creamier.

Check this place out for the Asian offerings based on other reviews but don't hurry for the curry!

“OK, but not very authentic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Broad menu: Indian, Chinese, Phillipino, Japanese, Thai, Jamaican, Mexican, touted in at Washington Post review as "authentic." Had Tom kha gai: decent but no galangal or lime leaves. Then bulgogi: fair-to-poor, tastes mostly of soy sauce and beef broth,none of the complex sweet taste of the real thing. Food supposedly comes in one to four stars of "heat." I ordered three stars, and spiciness was barely there. Not expensive, clean, industrial business park decor; attentive staff.

“One of my Favorite Places”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I have tried many things on their menu and everything is great! I love their Singapore noodles but also their Basil Sauce, Drunken Noodles, Thai Red Curry Noodles, Bibimbap, Bulgogi, etc. Services is always very good and I love their decor; fits in perfectly. They have such a wide array of items on their menu and everything else makes it a great experience every time.
