Ithaca >Taste Of Thai
Despite my reluctance to do so (I've had bad experiences here before), my wife convinced me to have our Mothers day dinner at this restaurant. She thought the open cafeteria style atmosphere would be more suitable for our small children. Also, she knows the owners personally. I made reservations for 6 pm. We arrived at the restaurant at 5:45. When we entered, we waited approximately 10 minutes prior to even being acknowledged. The restaurant was half full, yet the staff seemed to be incredibly preoccupied. We just stood waiting for some semblance of service.
After being seated, we quickly decided upon our meals and waited for a server to visit our table. One of the owners walked in and greeted my wife personally. Nevertheless, we waited at least 20 minutes to be acknowledged by a server with no success. Finally, out of frustration, we left and enjoyed our mothers day meal at Tamarind...my choice in the first place. The only reason my wife hesitated is the intimate atmosphere in Tamarind...she didn't think the kids would do well in that environment. Nevertheless, Tamarind Restaurant saved the night. My family and I enjoyed our dinner thoroughly and my wife agrees, we will never contemplate the notion of returning to Taste of Thai Express again.
An Ithaca Gem. I love this place! It has the besyt Thai food in the area in my opinion. The restaurant itself is beautiful. It's a fantastic place for a date. If you don't know much about Thai food (like me), the menu has explanations of each dish. I highly recomment you try it.
Try the Thai. Definitely one of the places to try on the Commons. The standard pad thai is great, and so is the fried rice with cashews, pineapples, raisins and chicken (or tofu). If you have a sweet tooth, go for the thai tea - a very sweet treat almost as thick as a milkshake. It's a great place to go for a date or just a chance to catch up with friends, as the line out the door indicates.
The Best Thai Food!. For such a small town, it's amazing how many great restaurants Ithaca has. Taste of Thai is no exception. It is the best Thai food I've ever had, and the long lines that have begun to form at dinner time indicate that many others feel the same way. It's a great place for a date, a birthday celebration, or a family dinner. Don't miss the Tom Kha soup and the Rama Noodle - yum!!
