So this place certainly doesn't serve the best Thai food (by a long shot), but it is still very good. I had the Panang curry pork and the Tom Kha chicken soup. I had the curry at a level 4 heat index and was disappointed that it wasn't hotter. If you're looking for authentic Thai favors, think elsewhere or another city. But if you're looking for an overall good meal and good Thai flavor, then definitely visit this place! I'd gladly return myself on the next trip to Ithaca.

This place unfortunately has not much to brag about. There is not much taste, it is neither true Thai nor express (read other reviews here about their slow service). Sugar and salt in their Thai-inspired dishes overwhelm the palate.

Pros: very tasty; great and fast service. A bigger variety of entries than the usual Thai restaurant.

Cons: none

We had the yellow curry and the rad nah.

The ambience, the quality of service and food were all great. The food is less pricey than other Asian restaurants such as Taste of Thai on the commons. Maybe because it is a bit far from downtown, but not too far. The restaurant is spacious and the wait times are neglible, which is one of the reasons why you might want to go here the next time you are waiting at a restaurant in Ithaca in a long queue.

We drove by the Taste of Thai Express several times before stopping to eat. From the outside it looks like a fast food drive-in. Inside it's quite different, very attractive. The food was excellent and well prepared. I had a delicious scallop dish and my wife had a duck in an amazing pumpkin sauce. We got there just in time since the place was packed by the time we finished eating.
