I've been going to Taste of Thai for about 6 years now. Started going when friends from Buff State who live nearby brought me there.

The food is WONDERFUL. It is fresh and tasty. I've never had a bad meal here; only thing is that I now need to ask for the shrimp to not be breaded in my dishes, which I never had to do in the past.

The atmosphere is dark, although they have gotten better over the years. The decor is a little cheesy, but the food makes up for it. I've never found it to be dirty as some reviews said; although one of the bathroom stalls was broken for a while and should've been fixed faster. Some of the reviewers mentioned a poor vent system, and I'd agree with that, but it isn't so bad that I've ever felt it ruined the experience. I've continued to go back for years, even with these small issues.

I've also brought numerous people to this establishment over the years, and they've all loved it.

If you want great Thai I would go and check it out for yourself and make your own decision.

Best thai restaurant in buffalo, and I have been to them all. The hostess seated us right away and although it was busy we received our drinks right away. the thai tea is wonderful and although they dont serve liquor you can bring in wine ect.
The vegitables are very fresh and the jasmine rice smells heavenly. My favorite dishes are the green curry with shrimp and their pad thai. Great food at a great price!

The food is awesome, great portion sizes you will take home left overs, price isn't bad at all for the amount and quality, try the sesame chicken and get it hot it's awesome, my favorite restaurant sure it's not super clean but honestly the food is soo good i keep going back, the veggie fried rice and fried wontons are really worth it too now you know what i order everytime i go there because it's so good i don't want to stray with anything else on the menu.

Pros: Food is amazing

Cons: Bathroom could use an expansion and cleaning

Was recommend this restaurant by a friend who met me for lunch. Read the reviews before hand so I was reluctant to go - can not handle dirty restaurants. And even though the food was good, I saw a cockroach on my way out on the front window. Ruined my lunch! Good food BUT very, very dirty! I will NEVER eat there again. I do not care how good the food is... because if you see how dirty the restaurant is especially the floor, you know the kitchen where they prepare you food is just as bad or worse... Yuck no excuse!

I went to this restaurant because some one recommended it and I had never tried Thai. The food is great. Yes the decor is a bit tasteless, but given a choice I would pick GREAT food over cheesy decor. No, the floor was not sticky and the bathroom was not filthy. The one big draw back is that the ventilation sucks. The place was filled with smoke from the kitchen and I left there smelling like Thai food.So the positives: 1. great food and lots of it fir the price. 2. You can feed 3 on the amount they give you.The negatives: 1. the black and maroon decoration is awful, the ventilation is not good enough.

I do not understand the poor reviews about this restaurant. I went there for my first time the other day and the food was amazing! It was cooked to perfection with the freshest ingredients. It WAS NOT dirty at all in there and the floor WAS NOT sticky. The service was also great. The only "bad" thing I can say is that the decor was a little cheezy but who the hell cares?!

The food is good enough, and the service is okay, but the place is so dirty I wouldn't go there again. As a friend put it, the carpet is supposed to be red but it's black, and the ceiling is supposed to be white but it's black too.

I'm a chain restaurant manager. I would have fire every one at this restaurant even the owner. They don't care about their bathroom, when was the last time they clean it??? (3 months ago?)

Now I understand why it is so dark in there, Dirty! Dirty! Dirty!

The pad thai is AMAZING! I honestly don't know about other dished because I'm addicted to the chicken pad thai! Yes, the restaurant ambience isn't great, but the food makes up for it. The service is good and there's always take out!

I love their food, and I question the poorly worded reviews below. "the back of the restaurant smell." Uh, yeah, that's probably the kitchen. The sticky floor? Never noticed it myself. The bozo who doesn't know that parties of ten always include gratuity, and was classless enough to try to chase down a tip from a poor little waitress? I DO NOT work for this place, but have taken all my friends with great success. I even took a couple dates there, with more success. It gets more crowded each time I go. Hell, we even spilled a bottle of wine once, and they were very gracious about it.
Food: ten
Service: ten
Decor: Okay, it's not that great: 6

DIRTY!!! DIRTY!!! DIRTY!!!

Food is OK. But I don't understand why it is so dirty? Sticky floor. The place is too dark and the back of the restaurant smell. May be its the bathroom. Or May be its the kitchen???

We frequent Taste of Thai at least once a month! There isn't another Thai restaurant in the area that compares, or out of the area that I have been to. To comment on the review with a horrible experience, if you dine out even seldomly with a large party, you should know that parties usually larger than 8 have gratuity added to their bill. It is your fault for your ignorance, not theirs. You provided a tip, they aren't going to take it back from whomever was waiting on you that evening.

The food is some of the greatest, not the greatest atmosphere but definitely nice service. Not to mention very moderately priced. A filling meal can cost as little at 8 bucks if you buy the lunch special.

So the first time I went there I was impressed since the food was good and that's what I was there for. However, once I really took around I realized just how filthy and poor the atmosphere is. The floor is so sticky that your feet make a sucking noise as you walk. There is no ventilation, so the place is filled with a smokey house and smells strongly of cooking. The decor is black and maroon...fine for dinner, but very dark and depressing for lunch.

And the service! I went with a party of 10 or so, and they automatically added the tip to the bill. However, they did not tell us they did it and didn't write it on the bill (they just added it to the end of the bill.) When we didn't realize it and tipped them an extra 15%, they didn't correct us. We realized the error a day or so later, and 5 of the original party came back to politely explain the situation and request a refund of some portion. The woman was EXTREMELY rude and standoffish and refused any discount. She said we should have known the tip was included, but there was no record of it. We had brought back the documentation and everything!

So though I'd give the food a 6 or 7 out of 10, I cannot recommend the place to anyone. Too bad...they could have done a lot more with it!

Pros: great food, great service.

Cons: kind of dark, no liquor but you can bring your own bottle of wine or beer.

This is the best Prig Khing I have ever had. Just excellent. Polite service, and good value. The Tom Yum soup pot is amazing and enough for 3 people. Very fresh ingredients.
