We use to order from here al the time but now I will be looking for a new place. The quality of their food has gone down while the price has gone up. Their food seem dry and has no taste. Very disappointed.

Delivery from Tai San Chef has shorted me on the last 2 orders. There is supposed to be a small chicken fried rice with a purchase over $30 - They even print it on the receipt as if you'll find it in the bag, but...it's not there. Neither are the almond cookies I ordered and was charged for. I will never order delivery from here again.More

Trying something different. On this visit we tried the spicy red curry. It was very good with an order of brown rice: I would highly recommend it.

Tai San is a great local restaurant that features a variety of cuisines. The service is great and food is always fresh. The sushi bar is wonderful and for special ocassions they also have a variety of drink options. The different Sakes are always a...great choice to compliment your meal. Tables and booths are available. It can get a bit loud ar times depending on the lunch or dinner crowd.More

We really enjoy this place each time we are in town. The go to item is the pad see eiw. They make it like no where else...along with some spicy fried Thai rice completed the meal.

we went with two vegetarians and two others, all found good selections from the Japanese or Chinese sections of the menu. Extensive choices - we did not try any Thai food so cannot comment on those. Sushi, fish and vegetable entrees were all very good....Nice friendly service, not at all fancy but good food and service.More

Great food - amazingly huge selection of the 3 asian specialties. Wonderful sushi, great Thai and Chinese food. Great for a celebration, carryout, or to dine in with family. The restaurant is very large and great decor!

We keep trying this place even after a not so good experience. Must say, a little better than last time, however prices are a little steep for Chinese food. May try again next time in area?

This is the place to go for Pad see ew. They use a very thick noodle and Chinese broccoli. The flavor of this dish is very distinctive, and has been the same time after time. I also really like the texture of the brown rice...as well. A must try...More

This is the only place to get Pad see ew. No other place I have tried comes close to this place for quality and flavor. Always stop by to get some when in town. Also got the spicy fried rice and chicken and broccoli.

Tried it again hoping it has improved! It has not changed for the better. This will be my last visit unless it improves. Prices still high compared to others and no where as good as it use to be.

Use to come here often, been couple years since we have been here and it has definitely changed, not for the better either. Prices up, quantity and quality down. Palatable but not great any longer!

You can not beat the Pad see we. The noodles at crispy and the best flavor of any place I have ever tried. Also got an order of thai fried rice, spicy. Makes for an excellent take out meal. The service may not be the...best, but the food can not be beat.More

We have been eating carry out from Tai San for years. Tonight we ordered a spicy tuna roll and Thai Beef ginger dinner. The spicy tuna roll was a tuna roll made in advance (lukewarm when it came home) with the spicy mayo in a...container on the side. The Thai beef ginger was not supposed to be spicy. But it was so spicy we could not eat it. What a waster on $26 as we threw most of it away!More
