Upon entering Tasty Thai, diners are cordially greeted by one of the two owners, Dan Raynard. The interior features low-key Thai decorations including subtle prints, wall coverings, with a rich gold and amber motif. The real star of this show, however, is the food. Each dish is prepared with authentic, fresh ingredients. Each mouthful is full of rich, savory flavors featuring artfully blended spices and herbs. The Pad Thai, a Thai cuisine staple, features hearty noodles with a tantalizing mixture of chopped peanuts, scallions, herbs and chopped eggs. Similar attention and gourmet expertise is evident in other menu offerings including Red Curry with chicken, bamboo shoots, mixed vegetables, Thai basil all simmered in coconut milk; Pad Cashew Nuts with pork, cashew nuts, pineapple, mixed vegetables brought together in an appetizing spicy Thai brown sauce; and the classic Praram with chicken, green beans, mixed vegetables in a tasty curry peanut sauce.
Most dishes are prepared by Tasty Thai’s other owner, Nok Raynard, from homemade recipes. Even appetizers such as steamed vegetable dumplings, delicately wrapped in hand-tied dough, are evidence of Raynard’s focus on cooking perfection. Be sure to also check out Tasty Thai’s liquor and beer offerings. In particular, they feature a fine selection of Moat Mountain craft beers to enjoy with your delicious meals. For those seeking fresh, authentic Thai on the Maine seacoast, Tasty Thai has what you’ve been craving.
