“Slightly different blend...”
Reviewed November 18, 2008

One of the frequent problems I find at restaurants serving "Thai" cuisine is that so many of them seem to be trying to sweeten food that doesn't require it, resulting in a sort of "plain macaroni" taste. This establishment abandons that idea and serves their dishes in shades of bitter, which is a welcome break. Most of the entrees use notably fresher and better-quality ingredients than their competitors, and the service is almost always attentive to detail - I haven't had an order come out wrong yet. Their burgeoning popularity has not diminished the food quality. There are competitors in the Knoxville area that provide a more cushy dining experience (it's plain old table-and-chairs at Taste of Thai), and some that have a more diverse menu (Thai along with Chinese, sushi, etc), but for core food quality this location probably has them all beat.

“Favorite Thai in Knoxville”
Reviewed November 2, 2008

Authentic Thai food at a very reasonable price. I have never eaten anything here that i didnt like. The service is prompt and professional. If you like Thai food this is the best place in knoxville to get it. I HIGHLY recommend it.

This is one of my favorite Knoxville restaurants. They have the best curry in town, and great variety. Try the Panang chicken.

This is good home style Thai food. Not the fanciest but the folks are friendly and the food is always good.
