Popular spot for locals around lunch time (and probably dinner too) so you'll want to get there a bit early if you don't want to fight the parking battle. That said, if you successfully maneuver the parking lot then you'll find a good meal waiting inside. I have had several of the dishes and have liked everything I've tried but... More

I took a friend here after moving from California, where Thai food is more common. I found their curry to be delightful and their spice levels to be accurate. It's a charming little place with a friendly atmosphere.

I had never eaten Thai food before until I came with a friend last December. I was not sure if I would like it, but I was pleasantly surprised! The food was excellent and I liked that I could choose the level of spicy-ness.

The place is very popular among locals. I've been there few times, but I'm not impressed. I found the food OK, nothing really outstanding Acoustics is terrible - there's so much noise , that carrying a conversation is impossible. I think that's due to small space with bare walls. They should consider putting some fabric an the walls to dampen... More

Delicious food & pretty consistent. Pad PAC, Woonson & chicken wings are some of my favorites. Lunch specials are the best deal. Iced tea, egg roll, entre', & choice of soup of the day or an extra egg roll.

I have ordered most of the dishes on the menu. I enjoyed every curry dish. Since I like spicy foods and my husband does not, it is great that they offer a 10 point range for heat.

Thai Taste has very good food, excellent service, and it is not too expensive. Both lunch and dinner menus are good, and the lunch specials can't be beat. I eat there at least 2x/month.

The flavors of the curries at Thai Taste have a wonderful home cooked flavor. The exotic spices and aromas make you feel like you're not in Carbondale. Thai Taste is a gem in a small midwestern town. The mildest they do curries is a 3 on their scale, and it's fairly spicy, but certainly not killer. If you don't like... More

By far, one of my favorite restaurants in C-Vegas. Delicious foods, excellent priced lunch menu, and high quality. All around, a great default restaurant when you don't want to think, "How can I get me some delicious food right now."

My wife and ate here while waiting for our car. We ordered the Pad Thai and pineapple fried rice. Both dishes tasted very "grilled" and very salty. I am not one to leave food behind but neither of us ate our meal. It was very busy so it must be popular, but for taste it wasnt very impressive.
