While enjoying Thai Cuisine, you might be interested in learning about Thai eating customs. Thai people usually eat together in large groups including family and extended family members. After the Thai food has been prepared, all the dishes are placed on the table in the order of "first done, first served." Appetizers, salads, soups, and main dishes should be eaten together and shared by all members in the group (or family style).
The following are the reasons:
A common misconception is that Thai food is very spicy. It can be if you desire, but does not have to be. Be sure to let the waiter or waitress know what you would prefer.
You will discover a wonderful variety to suit every palate.
The most important thing to remember when eating Thai foods is to enjoy yourself and don't be afraid to try new and different dishes.
We really appreciate your business and we thank you for choosing Tasty Thai.
