Surveying the vast array of Thai and Asian options in cool late night Hillcrest Taste of Thai packed out both lunch and dinner. After very enjoyable first visit it became a regular dining spot. The mix and match noodle dishes were fabulous and the starter salads as good as any I've had in Thailand. Mark and all the staff were great we never spoke to the Thai owner but saw her passing by. They have a second restaurant nearby and as ever owners on site always makes for happy customers. Thanks for having us. Vegas was great but we hope to be back in Hillcrest before too long

Very Good Dinner, Just Tonight. Soup - Tom Kha Gai was Fine, Shrimp was a Generous Portion, Cooked Well, not Overdone. Ambiance and Service- Really Very Good, I would say TOP Notch! Not Busy Place, Did Not Feel Rushed. Have Had Thai Cuisine at MANY, Many Places, and Taste of Thai is Certainly on par with Most Places that I have had Dinner At. Thanks.

Avoid like the plague. My wife and I love Thai food and have experienced it globally. This restaurant claims the notoriety of being the absolute worst Thai restaurant we've dined at. EVERY dish was horrible! I often order deep fried tofu with peanut sauce and even this was awful. The tofu tasted years old. The ambience was charming yet the service was ingratiating.

If you like great curry and fresh ingredients this is the place for you. The massaman curry is the best I have ever tasted and instead of peanuts they put cashews in (yum!!).

What you'll notice here is that every ingredient is top quality and fresh. All the chicken breast meat has been thoroughly chosen well and is perfect! This is rare in any restaurant and the presentation as always is beautiful. The staff is attentive and very quiet and considerate. The decor is modern and yet still gives the feel of Thailand without being tacky.

Everything about Taste of Thai was nice: the decor, the very friendly staff and the very tasty food. And great value on top of that. Highly recommended.
One minor disappointment was that we were rather late and the restaurant closed at 10 pm. Staff made it quite clear that this was not the time that the doors closed but the time that we had to leave. A bit of a rushed ending to a good Thai meal.
