Thai Taste was conceptualized by its owner and manager, Pom Boobphachati. (pictured right) Hailing from Bangkok, Pom gained vast experience working in two Thai restaurants from 1998-2000 and eventually running her own restaurant in Brunswick, Maine in 2000. Having obtained a bachelors degree in Public Relations from the University of Thai, Chamber of Commerce in Bangkok, Pom came to the United States to further her studies. Her dedication was recognized by her acceptance into the MBA program of Hospitality Administration at acclaimed Johnson and Wales University, from which she graduated in 2000. Ever the astute student, while in school, Pom enriched her personal growth by waitressing and learning the art of customer service at a Thai restaurant in Boston. Her attention to detail was recognized and she was later approached by her boss to start up a restaurant in Brunswick, Maine, which she successfully managed for over a year.
Accompanying her vast experience, Pom understands the importance of quality, fresh food, authentic taste, and customer satisfaction. These qualities translate into highly ranked reviews by local newspapers and customer testimonials. In March of 2005, Thai Taste ranked as one of the top 6 ethnic restaurants by Mainetoday.com. With all of these accolades, Thai Taste has also earned its popularity from word of mouth, a great reputation, and exceptional service.
Despite the most diverse menu offerings, (over 100 items) Pom is always looking for more ways to satisfy the customer. She recently journeyed back to Thailand where she learned about today’s most popular meals in modern and traditional Thai cuisine. Beautifully renovated, Thai Taste now welcomes its patrons with warm elegance, authentic elephant wallpaper, and a comfortable waiting area. Thai Taste is also excited to report that we have just expanded to 40 seats and are now able to accommodate large private parties and provide catering services!
With her legendary reputation, Pom decided to expand her knowledge into a second location at the requests of frequent diners in Old Orchard Beach, Saco, and surrounding areas. The new location, Pom’s Thai Restaurant, is located in the heart of South Portland. This central location meets the needs of many of its clientele who work in the Maine Mall area and is also in close proximity to the Portland International Jetport and local hotels. Pom’s unique cuisine, tropical drinks, authentic atmosphere, and exceptional service are now accessible to residents, shoppers, business travelers, and tourists in the greater Portland area.
In December of 2007, Pom expanded her empire, yet again, with the addition of Pom’s Thai Taste Restaurant and Noodle House. At Pom’s Noodle House, a more casual and modern décor welcome diners, while offering the same savory tastes of the other locations. Specializing in creamy curries and fine noodle soups, this location also boasts a sushi bar!
Enjoy the experience of Thai Taste- where we go the extra mile for your satisfaction!
