JONESBORO, Ark. – A local Thai food favorite has closed.
Thai Taste on 1906 E Johnson Avenue was closed, a voicemail greeting confirmed on July 31, 2018. No reopen date was specified, as the greeting indicated the closure was permanent. A piece of paper on the door said “we are closed.”
Two sources who worked at the restaurant were able to confirm the closing.
The Asian-cuisine establishment enjoyed over 4.6 stars on Google reviews – the highest of the two Thai food choices in Jonesboro. The only remaining local Thai-central choice, Sai Thai, is averaging 4.1 reviews as of this publication.
One user reviewed the restaurant as the “best” in Jonesboro on Facebook. It averaged 4.8 out of 5 stars with 100 reviews.
Oh, NO! LOVED Thai Taste! I like Sai Thai, too, but ThaiTaste’s tom kha was to die for.
Thai taste was by far the best restaurant of any sort in Jonesboro, although I never tried the Tom Kha everything else was amazing. The dressing on the lunch salads was good enough to drink. Do not waste your time on Sai thai, the food is average but the service is slow, oh so slow.
