This place is easy to miss. It is one of the myriad choices available in the Reading Terminal Market. And, their is not much to distinguish this nondescript place. And, their menu is quite limited. However, if you like Thai food as much as I do, and you appreciate a bargain, this place is a great find. I ordered the... More

I would highly recommend the salmon! It is fresh, tasty, and affordable. I went today and tried the veggie curry!!! It was great because I'm staying away from salmon (in general) for a while. However, this is a great place to eat. Lines can be very long though so be prepared for a long wait!

My husband just brought this home today for lunch and it was absolutely delicious. We have had it a number of times and even taking it home it was really really good. The salmon was cooked perfect and the rice...oh wow..the sauce was just right....just delicious...not overpowering...

Great food, excellent portions and quick service. The Pad Thai has a great taste. The coconut soups are also really good. There is always a line because of its popularity.

Lunch at Little Thai, particularly the salmon, is the best buy in prepared food you will ever find. Even in off hours, there is always a line for this stand. One order of salmon costs around $8 or so and easily feeds two people for dinner. We often get it as a take out for dinner that evening.

Funny how with all of the amazing choices at Reading Terminal, I'm always drawn back to Little Thai Market. Today I had the Chicken Basil and it was amazing as usual, as were the Chicken spring rolls. Price, flavor, quantity and quality - you can't go wrong.

It's a great spot for quick Thai. I ate here three times. I wasn't feeling well so I had soup. I felt much better after eating their soup. I had the chicken dish and it was very good. It is a good choice and it doesn't break the bank

Correctly named the Thai Food Market, I took advantage of a Saturday with a packed market but no real line at this popular Thai spot. I had a very tasty and well spiced but not too hot Shrimp curry.

Considering this restaurant is in a Market it is very good. With the long line I figured I would not be disappointed. And everyone was getting the salmon over rice so my quick lunch was apparent. Only problem was... no one with whom to share such a large portion. It was truly delicious. I was also able to take home... More

This place is located inside Reading Terminal Market. We had the salmon with red curry sauce on a bed of rice with broccoli. Also an order of 8 steamed crab dumplings (they were like shumai). The salmon was a huge portion of grilled salmon filet. The sauce with the dumplings was delicious. Served on a bed of lettuce, scallion, onion... More
