There are lots of Asian restaurants in the area but we love Far East Taste the best. My only complaint is they don't deliver. But since I'm just 5 minutes away it's not much of a complaint. Great value, good portions and great taste. We usually pick up for take out but have dined in a few times. Excellent service.... More

One of the best thai restaurants anywhere. It doesn't look like much, but the food is tremendous. They'll make anything you like however you like it. The fish always melts in your mouth. The coconut seafood soup is unique and once you've had it, you'll want it every time. The curries and any of the fish dishes are the way... More

Far East Taste, or "Fa E Ta" as my daughter calls it, is an outstanding rendition of non-metropolitan Thai and Malaysian cuisine with some of the best sauces and spices of any Thai restaurant, and we have been to many. The founder grew up in Asia as the youngest of many siblings, all of whom failed in life from drug... More

Far East Taste is very unassuming looking, just like any other chinese restaurant, but it is so much better that other typical chinese restaurants. I have been going here since I was a child and it is still as good as it was many years ago. I highly recommend it!

When my family says, 'let's get Thai food' this is the place we mean. We've tried others, this is the best. For those not turned on by Thai they also have excellent Chinese and Malaysian dishes. They're always happy to alter dishes to your preferences. Finally the prices are reasonable and it's BYOB so it doesn't put a big dent... More

Highly suggest the whole crispy fish. Best Thai food in the area. Lunch specials with the soup are such a deal! The dumplings are excellent.

We never need reservations nor have to wait for a table, so why should I tell folks about this gem in Eatontown. It is byob, has a great selection of dishes, and terrific service and intimate ambiance. Diet chicken, egg drop soup, pork with ginger, won ton - just a bit of what is on offer. Go, but don't make...

Judging from the outside you wouldn't think this small little restaurant could surprise you. But it will. The food is great here. Some of my favorite dishes here that I love are the Sausage Thai Fried Rice and the Sesame Chicken. As for the decor it's very homely feeling in there. Seriously give this place a try, it might surprise... More

The title says it all. I was so happy when I found this place. The pad thai is awesome!! Wouldn't eat in as it's a little small on the inside but you really can't get better Thai food around this area

Food is tasty and well-prepared. Menu has lots of items, more than the average Chinese restaurant. Staff is very pleasant and service-oriented. This is our go-to place for take-out but we eat-in about about twice a year. Has about 8 tables so good for couples, family and with friends. BYO. Food is that much better served right from the kitchen.
