Had lunch and dinner separate times here. The taste of food is good and the price is right. It is not a big restaurant so sometimes can be full but we got lucky both times.

We crave the food here and return often. I love the Pad Woonsen and the yellow curry. The lunch plate special includes iced tea, egg roll, soup, and your choice of many dishes, all for only $8.25. The egg rolls are so good, you may...More

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!
