Thai Lovers? Thai Taste Charlotte

Ciao Italia Foodie | Feb 20, 2009 11:42 AM

Friends introduced me to this Thai restaurant in Matthews, Thai Taste.
A party of ten and five had never eaten Thai. I was one of the five.(gasp)

This place , IMO was really good. Then again, it was my first experience.
Let me say, I have now found and alternative to Chinese restaurants.
Some "foodies" might say there is no comparison among the two but for me I think I found a new favorite.

We enjoyed the following
Sar Tah, OoOoO good ! Meat on a stick lol
Vegetable roll nice crispy and flavorful
If you like Calamari you must try the Thai version. Pla Muk Tod .
Thai fried rice, excellent.
Jasmine rice, incredibly light and fluffy.
Mee Krob, yum .You wrap them at your table.Do it quick it disappears fast.
OOO the soups, Tom Kha not overly creamy texture with a delicious coconut flavor.
Poh Tak , generous seafood portions in the hot pots (If you like ginger you will love this)
Pad Thai lovers how does this dish rate here at Thai Taste ? Because I LOVED it .
The duck Gaeng Ped is a great combo of curry and pineapple .
O and I think what really makes me say this is an alternative to chinese because I think they make an incredible Thai sesame chicken.
My first Singha beer was sampled here also. Nice and light .

To the service ,I must say I found much humor in the fight amongst "the stars" (how the restaurant determines how much heat you want.

I like it spicy so I said four stars our waitress responds with "TWO stars! good?"
And so on it went with the rest of the table unless they know you.
Funny, but they just want to make sure you know what you want.
Our waitress answered all our questions with knowledge and pleasure.

So Charlotte Thai lovers , Is this the place or will my love fade away once you recommend another?
Be gentle It was my first Thai experience.
