I return to Thai Taste pretty regularly. Favorite things are pineapple fried rice, wonton soup (really flavorful broth), Thai tea of course, and they generally have a fun beer special. Average dinner prices for flavorful food. Nice to have a spice option in Southern Illinois.

I travel some and this is my favorite. The dishes are reasonably priced and the place always has a decent crowd even for the awkward parking. The lunch special is one of the best bang for your buck deals around. Get the fried egg rolls!

I had been wanting to try this place since coming to Carbondale. Was good as far as the Thai iced coffee and red curry with tofu. But the spring rolls were kind of blah.

Our family really enjoyed this restaurant. I had pork in red curry (hot) and it was excellent. The staff was very attentive and the overall appearance of the place was nice.

Excellent Thai food. So fresh, big flavors, and good service (for the most part). And it is spicy! My girlfriend and I love it.

This is my go to date night restaurant. The food is delicious and the service never disappoints. The flavors are amazing! The fried egg rolls dipped in that awesome honey vinegar sauce are so crunchy and flavorful. The pad krao prau is my personal favorite.
