First time here and we had the Riti bread.....which was doughy and delish with a never before experienced sauce that delighted the palatte. Summer rolls were very fresh with a spicier than usual sauce. The pork spare ribs were succulent , tender, and the sweet glaze was excellent. The portion was more than generous. Atmosphere is a bit cramped but... More

Went here for a few times - the last time was with colleagues for lunch. A nicely decorated restaurant. The staff is friendly and efficient. The menu is quite extensive and they have good deals/combinations for lunch during weekdays. The pad thai and siam fried rice are spicy... definitely my favorites. When in Thai restaurants, try their Tom Yum Goong,... More

We were in the area for some business and a student from Yale recommended this place to us, saying it was the best. We had also been told there several nice restaurants in the area, so our expectations were a bit high. Plus, we were hungry... You need to come several steps down from the street to come into this...

We went for a quick meal at Thai Taste. The service was quick and friendly and the Pad Thai that we had was very tasty and good value for money. What we could not eat was carefully packed up inboxes for us to take away

“Thai Taste” is the restaurant my wife and I always choose when looking for Asian food in the vicinity of Yale Repertory Theater, Art Gallery, Center for British Art, etc. It’s on Chapel St. just half a block west of York, slightly below street level, in the space occupied in the old days by the “Old Heidelberg” restaurant, from which...

This restaurant would get many starts for their food. Thai Taste is in the basement and seems to me an old restaurant with old interiors. Not the most clean place. We ordered the prawns, chicken, fried rice and stir fry vegetables. Since we had gone just a few minutes before closing in the afternoon, we had to order all the... More

The place is well decorated, but it is in the basement...so may hard to find. They have good lunch specials.

Thai foods usually healthy, spicy , but less oil though sometimes salty due to fish sauce. I always order Som Tam salad, Tom yam noodles soup, Pad thai, n Thai fried chicken and Thai fried rice a little salty and it taste like mixed with shrimp paste, if you have allergies with shrimp don't try this one fried rice but...

I am not a very big Thai fan but they do have very good food. the fried tofu is very good and they have great pad Thai. I highly recommend this place if you are in the area and are in the mood for Thai.

I was in town for a family function and stopped to get take-out from here on the way home. I had a taste for noodles and ordered the Pad See Ew. It was delicious --- the perfect balance of sweet and salty and sour, and the broccoli was not overcooked. I had the Thai steamed dumplings and they were fine,... More
