Thai Taste's, on the lower floor of the Hotel Duncan , is easy to access, even if you're not staying at the hotel. The Royal Thai government agrees that Thai Taste is one of the best Thai restaurants in the Tri-State area. Come on down and explore Thai favorites like chicken satay and various fried rice dishes or choose one of the more exotic offerings, like rabbit or frog. Vegetarian specialties, seafood and hot and spicy curries also grace the menu.
I like Thai Taste because they serve quality food at reasonable prices, with brown rice usually available as an option. Many Yale students here, especially at night. Can get a little loud.
There are 5 Thai restaurants on Chapel street. I've tried 3 of them and Thai Taste is the best by far.
We ordered the Thai sampler, red curry w/ pork, and drunken noodles w/ chicken. The portion was generous (this was the lunch menu) and the food was delicious. The amount of heat was just right. Not too spicy, not too mild.
I will definitely return to this place and would certainly recommend it to others. Nice ambiance as well.
This place is delicious--I eat here all the time. The people are very friendly, and the lunch specials are a tremendous deal because you get so much yummy food. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
The soft shell spring rolls are out of this world. They're fresh, crunchy and excellent. As a matter of fact, now that I'm writing this, I'm going to stop on my way home and get a few of those rolls to go. ~ Frank
Nothing too fancy, but the food is good. I'm especially fond of the Tom Kar Guy soup (Chicken Coconut), the Pad Thai, and the Panang Curry. Their Thai iced tea is also great. Not too pricey, and the portions are generous but not wastefully so.
A Yale University staple.
Thai Taste is definitely my favorite Thai restaurant in New Haven, probably because I have eaten there nearly 500 times over the last three years. It helps that it is right across the street from where I go to school. But the service is great, the people very friendly, and it is in a great, downstairs location.
