Big fan of this! I got the Grilled Pork Chop and the flavor was amazing! The rice was cooked to perfection and it came on a bed of lettuce and cucumbers, which left a great crispy and light touch to an otherwise very dense and filling meal. My only complaint on the food in total was that my friends got the rice as well but were given noodles instead that neither was very fond of. Overall, though, very tasty and not loaded with salt or soy, which made the natural flavors of the meat shine through clearly. Highly Recommend! More...
Oh my gosh. Do not be fooled by its humble appearances! Best Sushi and Sashimi I've had in a while! Their milk tea and hot grean tea perfect. This is my absolute favorite spot now! Fair prices, friendly staff and clean bathroom. The over all feel of the place is laud back and I wull go here again. Thats a promise AND I thinknyou should try too. LOVED IT!! More...
Delicious pho and sushi. The pho broth is rich and flavorful, and the rice noodles are just right (not overdone, which is a pet peeve of mine). I've enjoyed every sushi/sashimi I've tried there. They've made some updates recently to the 39th Avenue location that make the environment more pleasant too. More...
The staff is friendly and I've always had great servers. I like coming here with friends because they create a great atmosphere for casual dining. They also have "check-in" discounts which is really nice especially as a college student! I usually always get the pho though and I do feel like they've been skimping on the meat lately, and the broth feels more watered down. Also the quality of food tends to decrease the later in the day you go. More...

I normally get the seafood udon however the past couple of times at the 34th Street location there was not any scallops in the dish and the 2 shrimp were tiny "salad" sized.
Oh, how I miss you and your carpaccio
Magnificent as always. Best Pho around
Fantastic food! They catered a Chamber of Commerce event I went to last night and you couldn't get me away from the food section. The catering staff were also all very friendly and courteous. More...
Taste is amazing! I have lunch meetings there often, dinner dates and now the outdoor porch is a great place to have happy hour drinks. The owner, Hung is a great person and gives back to the community. I took my sister there when she came to visit last year and now she asks to go back every time she comes up. I can't even recomend a single dish because I haven't had one that wasn't delicious. More...
Sushi is amazing!
The food and service was excellent but the AC was broken making it hot, even under a fan.
The food was really good, and the prices great.
Always fresh, tasty Asian dishes and Sushi. Lots of vegetarian choices. The Hot Pots are great, and a ton of food. If they're busy, it may take a while for your food to get out, but it's worth a wait.
We were very satisfied with our experience there. Food and service and prices were very good.
Loved the place. Sushi was fresh. We had the fried Oreo as dessert. Loved it
Great Pho, good prices
I recommend F14 The spicy seafood with noodles. They also offer a small selection of tasty kids meals. There are boba drinks and also Asian beers available. Indoor and outdoor seating. Family friendly, but there's no changing pad in the restrooms. Mia was our server and she's very friendly and helpful with recommendations. Will definitely come back to try the rest of their soups. More...
Loved the pho bac diet when I visited. Would love to try other items from the menu.
Great restaurant, great food. Loved my experience. Fried Oreos are an amazing end to a wonderful meal.a
Love this place!! I get the housemade crab wontons every time and all the entrees are amazing.
Good pork belly ramen- lots of meat in addition to a decent portion of noodles. Bon bo hue was also tasty, and you can increase spice to taste. Would definitely come back again.
So delicious! The pho and boba two were oh sooo good! Im surprised that there werent that many people. They served very fast and also were funny. Great restaurant!
Best Pho in Gainesville
Again taste Noodle House continues to please and astonish! Between thediversity of the menu, friend, and the kitchen's willingness to modify any item to your specifications, great place to come. Good for families, kids, vegetarians, or meat eaters alike. They also have a happy hour which sets them apart from most restaurants of this caliber and food group. More...
Excellent choice for fast service. I would eat here once a month after getting my nails done In Gainesville. It's casual and comfortable. So many vegetarian options
Great for a quick light lunch.
Food waa fresh and good.
Good food and service. I wish one of the people I went with hadn't been so flakey and disrespectful to the wait-staff.
I admit it I cheated! I've been a very good girl on my keto diet but this was definitely the place to lose control the noodles were amazing the sushi ball was awesome the staff was friendly kind and gave recommendations. Will definitely be going again and making sure all my friends know! More...
여행중에 한국식당이 없으면 종종 베트남쌀국수로 느끼한 속을 달래는데 이곳도 그래서 갑자기 찾아낸 곳인데 쌀국수맛은 보통이구요. 대신 직원들이 친절하고 깔끔한 가게입니다. More...
The food was awesome! Yes I cheated on my ketogenic diet but it was well worth it! Both the noodles and sushi bowl were amazing!
Excellent service and good food, Pho and spring roll
It's a good place, I really enjoy there sushi and pho bowls. Only down side is its always hot inside at dinner time.
Food was fine. I only ordered cucumber sushi, so I don't have a significant sample size at all from which to judge.
I normally don't leave reviews but this place won my heart over!! Amazing service, quick on serving food, and to top it off their food will satisfy your taste buds!!
I ordered F1 pho on the menu. The broth flavor was good and it came with an okay amount of meat, but the vegetables were lacking freshness. I would come here again.
All of their soups have such great flavor. I've brought basically all of my friends and family here and everyone loves the pho. It's big, filling, and most importantly, cheap. They've got a great menu with a multitude of selections and their customer service is always very good-the food comes quickly. More...
I really love the food here so it's a shame that I usually avoid going because of the slow service. It happens every time, we all want to leave but it takes forever to just get the check.
This is probably one of my favorite places to eat in Gainesville considering that I frequently order take out from here. I would say that this place has a variety of asian fusion meals with a focus in Vietnamese cuisine. I almost exclusively order the same dish every time I order take out, and this is the Taste Fried Rice with pork. If I want something lighter, but filling, I'll order the Banh Mi with beef. The food is pretty tasty and filling for the price (maybe average $8-$10 meals), and with the fried rice I'll typically have enough left over for a second meal. There's really no other place I would want to order fried rice or Banh Mis from in town for the price. The only thing I would advise is to take caution if you want to eat with a lot of friends inside the store. The restaurant itself is pretty small and it can fill up quickly if there's some sort of deal going on. That's why I typically just order takeout. More...
Great food, for either dine-in, or they also have the option to call in an order and pick up as well. They now also have patio seating at the 39th Avenue location. This is great, since it doubles their seating options. (Very limited space inside) More...
I will keep this simple , this is the best sushi restaurant in Gainesville. Taste is locally owned and it shows in the best possible way. Both of their locations are happy to accommodate your party as big or small as it may be. As a new dad I like to take my daughter out to eat just the two of us and as babies tend to do sometimes she needs her diaper changed mid meal and taste is one of the few places that has changing tables in both the women's and men's bathrooms. I know this may not seem like a big deal but it's these small details that make Taste such a wonderful restaurant for birthdays, celebrations, or just a daddy/daughter meal.There sushi is incredible but for a real bang for your buck my go to is there chicken pad Thai . More...
Great authentic Thai food. Wonderful sushi made to order. The chef can even make custom orders if he has product on hand
Diverse menu, tasty food, friendly waitstaff
Mia and juana were both some awesome waitresses. I'll definitely be back when I'm in Florida.
I enjoyed my beef pho. Apps were good too. Coffee was delicious
The spicy basil fried rice was very good! The servers are friendly and the happy hour deals are lit
Very delicious soup! Excellent service, great scenery and great weather great drink, great location. Everything's very fresh and came out very fast.
Clean and pleasant. Good service. DELICIOUS food!
My fav location for quality vietnamese food. service is always prompt even when they have a full house. looking forward to coming back with my relatives. menu is like a cafe in boston i loved. More...
This is my go-to place for sushi. I always leave full and satisfied. I highly recommend this place. I appreciate how their sushi menu is now reorganized to show the raw rolls from the cooked rolls.
I stop here whenever I'm near gainesville. The pho is delicious. The broth is a 10/10 best vegetarian pho broth i've ever had. It is a hole in the wall but all the best places are. It's my number 1 pho place in gainesville. the veggie dumplings are also very good. yum, i'm craving them right now. More...
Pamela List Myhree
Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit. Big, almost overwhelming menu! Everything was delicious. Great service, too!!
Delicious food served fast. Location is a bit small but it doesn't feel cramped. The menu is fairly large and diverse but every dish I have ever tried as always been delicious.
Virdell Bowles Jr.
Food was great , service was a little slow.
Great little place for amazing, high quality food. Prices are good for the amount of food you get. When they say large bowl, it is LARGE. The Bahn Mi are amazing! Stir fry, mouthwatering! Highly recommend if you like Vietnamese style chow. More...
Matthew Jacob Parker
Is the best experience working with all personel
Veggie pho with steamed tofu!
Great food, & nice staff.
Being of Vietnamese descent, I go to Taste to get dishes that are exactly how my mom makes it. This place is not a corporate restaurant, its home style Vietnamese cuisine place to go if you want Vietnamese/Asian authenticity. Everything on the menu is great.
Great food. My second experience with Phó. Awesome place.
Friendly staff with a warm atmosphere. Their pho is light to eat; not heavy or oily. Will go back once I'm in the area again.
Omg Vietnamese fish sauce taste just like home
Great Ramen Noodles
Best place to get Vietnamese dishes! I come here with my dog all the time as they have outside seating. Make sure you let the waiters know you’re outside, they’re so busy they sometimes don’t realize someone is sitting outside. The place is clean and the service is quick! I’ve ordered food to-go from them and the portions are the same. Best place to get Pho if you’re sick! More...
Orw 2 Disney, read reviews and picked this place. Great service, calm, friendly, good portions of food. Had F4 - pho, broth was great.
Taste is amazing. They have a huge pan-asian menu. go early if you are on a schedule for lunch it gets real busy.
Great neighborhood sushi place. Def recommend.
Girlfriend took me to Taste for Pho and i absolutely loved it. The place is very nice with plenty of room, the menu has plentyto select from and im definitely going back. Definitely worth checking out
Excellent food! Definitely a must-try in Gainesville!
lovely atmosphere, good fresh food, nice people!
This place is the best! Great Pho and the BEST service!!!
Services very nice and very friendly. my pho was excellent.
Best vegetarian pho I may have ever had. Great service and price!
First time here. Very impressed with the service, portion sizes and price!
This place is really great. Went for the first time last night. Our server My was aweaime. The food was hot and fresh. We sat on the patio. It was perfect.
I visited because it was closer to my work than it's sister restaurant. I didnt enjoy it as much as I did the other location. It was still very good and cooked to order. The atmosphere is different but it was still enjoyable. More...
Excellent food, great service. Will definitely be going there again.
Great service and food.
anything u can do I can do vegan
We were paying by on our way to Tampa from Georgia. We had the fresh twist roll, the vegetarian pho and veggie fried rice, everything was delicious! We'll def. stop by, whenever we're passing through Gainesville again. More...
Love this place
Good food and place.
V for Vanessa
I bi-weekly date night here with my hubs
Very good food, sushi, is all I had there but what I had was excellent!
Great place for lunch. Servers were very nice and attentive. In and out quickly and the food is delish. I had the summer rolls, miso soup, and ginger salad. Good portion sizes and value for all 3 items. Will be back again. More...
Excellent definitely will be back.
Lee Aune North Wolffis
We tried Taste with my sister and brother in law who both only eat beef and chicken home cooking. Well, there were choices on the menu even they loved!!. Everything was delicious with a beautiful presentation. We are looking forward to going again. More...
This is my favorite place to get pho! They have great discounts to to where it is cheap & they give a good portion! Definitely recommend!
Best pho in Gainesville and I've been a couple other places. Service is always quick.
Fantastic place for Pho! The food is delicious and the service is always great. I recommend the F2 and an appetizer of the krab wontons.
The vietnamese sub and wongton soup lunch combo along with the vietnamese fried rice with chicken is great. They had a half off drinks today so we had jasmine and oolong tea. Very good atmosphere and enjoyed rekaxing even after finishing the meal. The ladies are great and easy to get along with. More...
Excellent Pho, good price and very good service!
Pho was really good. Pricing is very competitive and cheap vs many pho places around Gainsville. Everyone greets you with a smile and their menu boast a lot of vietnamese food options. Would recommend.
So many choices of great food here. I had the Kimchi Ramen, which tasted amazing. My coworkers I was with had sushi and pho. Everything looked and tasted delicious. Definitely worth trying this place if you like Asian food and you are in the Gainesville area. More...
Taste never fails to be surprisingly delicious ever single time. The atmosphere is moderately quiet and the servers are always polite. I highly recommend the shaken beef entree, delectable filet mignon at a ridiculously good price, not to mention all the fresh veggie trimmings that comes with it. Probably one of the best beef entrees I've found and they've got a great variety of sushi and bento to choose from as well! Definitely a local favorite. More...
Yes the food is awesome
The food is great but I have consistently gotten food for takeout/delivery with the sauce missing. The included sauce is on the menu, but I have resorted to explicitly asking for it and even then it does not get included. The service can be hit-or-miss when dining in, but it is largely due to how busy they can get and not having enough people at those times. More...
Very flavorful and delicious soup! I will definitely try there again.
It was very good and the portion of udon soup was pretty huge
Awesome pho and sushi!
Food never disappoints. Service not always perfect but acceptable. Have tried many different things on the menu.
Was a disaster after manager left, happy that they've improved. Still needs to work on consistency, but overall still very tasty.
Pablo Varela III
Loved it! This place is absolutely fantastic and the prices are more than reasonable.
the ramen is delicious! one of my favorite places to eat and kristina our waitress was very knowledgeable and helped guide us through the menu.
I went yesterday to see my usual guy but he wasn’t there, however this server, Tiffany I believe, didn’t do a very good job. She made it seem like I was new to this place and I immediately told her I’ve been here multiple times, politely. I wasn’t very welcomed by her, and she seemed to be shy when she took my order and a friend of mine. I was happy with my food but definitely not happy with the service I was received from her. More...
You want something warm to eat, go and eat an F4
Pretty good, not quite 5 stars. Huge pho portions with very reasonable prices. Great daily specials each day. You can get an extremely satisfying lunch for just over $10. Word to the wise, don't order the jumbo pho, order just the large. The large bowl of pho was very satisfying. More...
Most delicious and great service! Convenient, friendly, tasty, diverse and accommodating menu. Plum wine, yum!! And I have read some of your reviews... You come here every day but you give the restaurant one star? To me this doesn't make any sense. Please go someplace else if you're going to give a restaurant one star. Restaurants get busy and if you come here every day you should be familiar with the staff enough to cut them some slack. Why would you go back to a restaurant every single day that you give one star to? Their food is intricate, and detail oriented. Holidays are also here. Again....cut them some slack.... Something brings you back to this restaurant everyday. Hold back that one star post just for one day. More...
The best tuna poke bowl ever!!!
Small, comfy and welcoming restaurant. Great flavor, really enjoyed it. Attentive service.
Many types of Noodle soup to choose from with friendly staff.
We love this place. It is always 5 stars every time we eat here. The sushi and the noodle soup bowl is delish!
Best pho in Gainesville by far. We've been here several times and order different dishes. Everything it was great. So far, nothing to complain. The staff is nice too
We're baaaaaaack.... came again bc we wanted good sushi before the year ended. We missed the 3-6 BoGo but the food was great. I had the Claypot Fish which was amazing and my gf had the shiitakes & scallops. We ordered the Crab wontons which are top notch and then ordered the gator roll and the molten volcano roll. Both were just okay this time. Only thing that bugged us was that they brought out her dish 5 minutes before mine which made it ackward and also the sushi was brought to our table after the main course had already arrived. Still, it's a great place to eat, they just seemed to bring things out of order for us tonight. We will be back!!! More...
Great food and fresh. Crab wontons were excellent
The staff was AMAZING and the food was Great! Wonderful experience!
Love the place! The bowls are worth a daily visit! Menu covers all bases if a bowl is not what you want.
I love this place. I take my friends here and we always enjoy the food. It's clean, the wait staff are very friendly. I stop there often and pick up food to take to my dad because he loves it also. We definitely give it 5 stars. Portions are great as well, there's always some to take home for later, YAY. More...
Very good food and service. Our server was so nice and helpful. The food came out fast and was delicious! The fried dumplings are amazing, and yummy pho, and the prices are affordable.
This is my favorite Vietnamese restaurant in Gainesville. The food are really good and I also like their milk tea and fruit tea. Mia and Tomy are very nice and sweet too. Highly recommended! More...
Food is good
Nothing but amazing!!!
Awesome noodle house and they have boba! They have a pho eating challenge if your heart, stomach and mind can handle it!
Best! Pho Ga I have had ever! Cute place and friendly people. Prices are good Yum
Great food! Very creative and service oriented. And that Boat!!!! Amazing display.
I'm going to preface this by saying I've come here way too much. Every time I hear that one of my friends hasn't tried this place, I drag them so I've basically tried the majority of the menu. This is my go-to pho place in town. Details below! FOOD: 5/5 Pho is the best comfort when you're hungover, sick, it's cold outside, basically for any occasion! I typically get the regular size F1 or F2, but you can upgrade to a larger size for a small upcharge. What I love about this place as well is their appetizers; I've tried the majority of them and my favorites are the BBQ ribs, egg rolls, crab wontons, and Taste wings. They have buy one get one half off appetizers for happy hour as well! AMBIANCE: 4/5 While small, I find the atmosphere at Taste to be super comforting and love coming here to eat and hang out with my friends. Normally it's not too packed unless there is a school fundraiser; in which case, you'll be lucky to get a table. SERVICE: 5/5I've never had a problem with the service at Taste. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and even when it's packed I've never had to wait more than 10 minutes or so for my food. If you haven't tried this place yet, what are you doing still reading this?! 10/10 recommend More...
wonderful staff and amazing service! go here!
I had the stir fry noodle bowl and it was delicious. There was enough for two meals!!
friendly staff, cozy atmosphere!!!!
Good food, not crowded
The pho in town
Great food. Good happy hour deals. Okay service.
HUUGE portions and the food is always on point. Love the team as well. Seriously good food hidden off 39th.
great food friendly host a little hard to find but very good food
This place was amazing. It is small so there's not a lot of seating, but the food was great. Pho with beef and the kimche fried rice was great but don't forgot the chili oil on the side if you like
After learning that my favorite Vietnamese restaurant in town, Faith was under different management, raised their prices, and was just simply not good anymore, I honestly decided that Gainesville just simply wouldn't have a good Vietnamese restaurant ever... But after some convincing from my sister, I decided to give Taste a try...Atmosphere: 4/5 Casual, inviting, and intimate space. There isn't a lot of seating unlike a standard restaurant, but you do have options of sitting at a regular style table and 1/2 seats & 1/2 bench table inside and outdoor seating as well.Service: 5/5 You seat yourself and are served by staff. Staff is super friendly and was happy to give recommendations when requested. Food did not take too long to arrive once I ordered.Price: 4/5 Price of food average compared to other Vietnamese restaurants... Some apps have coupons and promotions for Taste, so be on the lookout to save even more money!Food: 5/5 I usually order F6 and the banh mi sandwich is my new favorite. You won't regret it! Overall, I really enjoyed this place as my go-to for a quick meal! It will certainly not be the only time I visit and I will definitely be bringing my traveling friends to this place! More...
This place is amazing! The summer rolls are HUGE with huge shrimp and large amounts of chicken in it. I've been to some places where you can't even tell there is any shrimp in the roll. The peanut dipping sauce is the best we have ever had (we've been to every Vietnamese place in Gainesville AND Orlando). I had the green curry chicken, which tasted even better as leftovers the next day! BF had pho and loved the broth it came in. Would highly recommend and can't wait to go back to try even more items! More...
Kelly Nicole Burke-Torres
Very good location for me and tasty food prompt service and accommodating towards modifications.
This is place has amazing food for cheap prices. You get a ton of food for the price you pay. I highly suggest this restaurant!
Awesome food.Wi-fi Access.Very friendly servers, andthe serving size to cost ratio here, is tied for the highest in Gainesville.(along with Grill Fresh.)Best Asian soups in town.Period. More...
Nice casual place to get some really good Pho. Convenient location and friendly staff. It's a smaller restaurant but never seems to be too busy.
I happened to be passing through Gainseville and was in the mood for pad thai. Found them on google and I am very impressed. Ended up getting a bahn mi sandwich as well which was very flavorful and delicious and the pad Thai was great too! Staff was very sweet. Definitely recommend. More...
Good food, big plate of food. I will go back again!
Albert Wass de Czege
Food and service was good. They were busy so it took a little longer for the food to come out, but the kitchen was steadily pumping out the meals.
Can't miss Asian. If you don't like this place you should have just stopped at McDonald's!
Taste has excellent Curry and drunken noodles!
Love their seafood pho!! That stuff is great during the winter months and when you have the flu, the common cold, typhoid...
Hard to fathom... but it gets better every time! And, it was excellent to begin with. The lobster roll (Oceans 11) is to die for! Better bring an appetite!!
Amy Tostanoski Harris
We love Taste and I have been known to go here three times in a week!
The only time my husband was ever disappointed was because he failed to
specify exactly what he wanted.
As a recent vegan there are many places I no longer dine at, but I was able
to continue to keep on dining here.
On the the weekend we always get our favorite little waitress More...
Mark B. Witmer
I give it 5 Stars! The food and service were amazing. 2 appetizers and 2 bowls of Pho with a Military discount, only $24.00! We'll deal with the noisy College kids anytime! More...
Abrina Bridges Fechter
Great food and friendly staff! They have a lot of options, and everything we ordered was yummy!
Excelente comida y muy buen servicio !
Amazing food and service!!
Food was the bees knees. Super good
Great food and management. Was waited on by Tomy with excellent service. I would definitely come back and recommend!
great service, great sushi!!
Enjoyable place for a mid-week meal with friends. Large portion sizes, fresh ingredients, great presentation, friendly wait staff, and a varied menu make this a repeat spot to visit. But be aware that dishes tend to the over-salted side, so one star down for that. Also, be prepared for close-quarters seating. This is only a problem when you are seated next to a family with four rambunctious children clamoring for more sushi and pitching fits when it doesn't come out fast enough (sounds so specific, doesn't it?). Ahem. Overall, a great place to eat and chat with friends. More...
This is the place I go when i want a variety of unique sushi rolls or if I'm feeling under the weather their Pho. The owner is very sweet and the staff is very hardworking.
Thomas E. García Gumá
A cozy place where the waitresses are very attentive and the food is great!!!
Good noodle soups.
The food here is phenomenal, and the staff is always friendly. First of all, shout out to the guys who man the sushi bar, they have amazing skill and you can tell they take pride in their work. Every time I order a different roll I am left speechless at what they bring to the table, sometimes I don't even want to eat the art they create! Definitely love their food and all of their variety when it comes to alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks (please excuse the bad pictures, I'm not the best photographer). More...
Another amazing little spot in Gainesville that packs a monumental flavor kick to your mouth. This place puts both Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine in one tiny place ... And this absolutely works!! Appetizers are great as well as their main dishes. Large portions and great ambiance and even better wait staff. .. you can't go wrong eating in a place like this. Even more so there is a electric car charge port outside!! Ev friendly ! #jaxlocalvibes IG: jaxlocalvibes More...
Love everything I've gotten there!
Vietnamese and Asian fusion.
The veggie ramen is my absolute favorite here. Best in town!
Fast, and friendly customer service. The food was fresh, hot, and delicious. I will definitely be coming back for dessert as well. The fried oreos were great!
Get the keko bowl
Great Thai food with reasonable price. They seafood soup is the best.
Good food. Sushi was fresh. Prices seemed reasonable. Music in the dining room was a bit odd but that's not a big deal. Our waitress was severely nice. Beer selection is pretty good mostly consisting of Asian lagers but that's to be expected.Only 4 star because it didn't blow my socks off in flavor. Otherwise I would go back for sushi. More...
Really nice bowl of phó
This place is phenomenal. The food is excellent.
The sushi and staff are the best
Good food, good service
Maria Jose Toro
We had a really lovely experience at Taste! Our wonderful server, Nhi, was extremely considerate. When I asked to have the vegetarian ramen, she took it upon herself to have the egg, that comes with the ramen, poached on the side. I didn't know that the ramen came with egg, and because she wasn't sure if I was the type of vegetarian that ate eggs, she went te extra mile to make sure she was being respectful. Additionally, when she gave us our waters, she asked if we wanted straws. We try not to use straws when we eat out to reduce waste, and typically servers just give them to us without asking (and of course they get thrown out anyway, even if we don't use them). Even though it was something so small, I appreciated her consideration as well. It was a great experience and the ramen and fried tofu we ordered as an appetizer was delicious! More...
Nou Lia Vang
I love the vibe and the food is great! I moved down from Minnesota and honestly could not find anything close to being authentic Asian food in Gainesville. Yes, spoiled city girl here. But this place satisfied my cravings. The service is good. Could use another hand or two in the evenings. Pho is yummy! More...
As an asian, I can tell most of the Sushi and Spring rolls in US are "american style". If you have been to China or Japan, you will never find cheese in sushi. Sushi in TASTE is still the american flavor sushi. However, I am impressed by the Vietnam summer roll(it's a steamed spring roll with shrimp, chicken and rice noodle filling). That definitely worth a more than five star recommendation. Considering the price ($5 for two) and it's size, I can even take it as a meal(maybe plus some drink or beer). I will say that is the best of the best in Taste(I'll take some pics next time). Their Noodle soup(a.k.a. pho) is also asian taste and I like it so much (It's also not that expensive comparing to the other mediocre asian restaurant in Gainesville). More...
Best Asian food in Gainesville
As a sushi veteran, I️ can say this place is one of the best places to eat in Gainesville. Unlike its sister location on Archer, this location offers an extensive sushi menu. The menu includes clay pot bowls, ramen, rice dishes and a full page of vegetarian and vegan options as well. I’m not sure what’s up with other reveiws complaining about the service. I’m assuming it’s some of the more impatient older guests that tend to come here. The service is great and I’ve never had a bad experience in almost a year of coming here.Keep in mind that this is a smaller restaurant. There’s only a handful of chefs and servers working. Your food may come a little slower than some other places, but it’s worth the wait. This is a great choice for a wide offering of Asian foods. More...
D Y Smith
Great food. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Great value.
Food is good. A little over priced for Gainesville though.
Huge portions! Great food!
Fabulous Fresh Asian Flair Food... Delicious Broths for soup, Raw Veggies Fresh, Fresh
Grilled pork noodle bowl is my favorite. Sushi is great too.
This is by far one of my favorite places to frequent here in Gainesville. I come with friends, and I come alone quite often. The staff has always been incredibly accommodating and friendly, and the sushi and pho tasty and wonderful. I always recommend this place to my fellow sushi lovers around town. More...
The owner and staff are excellent. Pad Thai was the best dish ever. Cannot wait to go back
Crafty bastards is amazing. The best gourmet style American food anywhere. The food network should do a special on this place. Just incredible.
The wait time for service feels a few minutes longer than most places, but it is worth the wait- you can't rush perfection. Fantastic food that's reasonably priced, and they have a ton of legit gluten-free options (which is highly unusual for an Asian restaurant. Take it from me, I'm one level below Celiac, so if I can eat there and consistently not have an adverse reaction, they know what they're doing). There's even a whole page of vegetarian options, so there's something for everybody in your group. My only suggestion for what they could do better would be to invest in a water filter, because it sure tastes like it comes straight from the tap; other than that I have only good things to say about them! More...
This was the first time here, I guarantee it won't be the last. Wonderful food and extremely attentive wait staff.
Great food and extremely reasonably priced
Impressed with the selection and prices. Very reasonable for what you get. Nice environment.
Excellent south east Asian food, variety of cuisines. Emphasis on Viet Nam, extensive variety. Excellent assortment of Asian beers. One of my favorites
Food is great, but service was slow both times I was there
Good place for pho noodle soup. They serve better pho soup than any other Vietnamese restaurants in Gainesville. I also tried red curry and it was delicious. Remember you should go to the "Taste on 39 th" , not the one 34th. The same menu I tried at the Tastes on 34th was terrible. More...
Foods are so good but the tables are so close to each other
I love the vegan food at this restaurant!!!!!
Great food. Server was awesome. Guy at the sushi bar want very friendly. Had the Pho. Not as good as Faith but good. Price was good as well.
Always love eating at Taste. Menu selection is great and prices are fair.
Love this place.
Taste always has amazing food! I have never been disappointed with the food or service.
The food is amazing and the chef works hard to make sure that each guest is taken care of fully. The soup is hands down amazing.
Delicious! Great Sushi!
I've enjoyed everything I have had at Taste. It is a bit on the expensive side for Asian fare in my opinion, but good things cost money. Go with the expectation of spending a little more than you might think its worth and you won't be disappointed. The pho is probably the best value on the menu. More...

The food was excellent. Service good. My favorite soup in town. #F21
Consistent. Delicious. Authentic. Reasonably priced. Service can stall but if you let them know you need it fast they'll work for it.
Awesome pho and sushi, gotta try the fried cheesecake
Good veggie ramen and sushi. The drunken noodles was too sweet.
Excellent food and service
Great summer rolls
Love Tom Yum Soup and Green Curry!
Delicious and very easy to order special diet food for allergies and low carb if needed.
lol be that pork ramen ...crave that bowl
From the mean I had they seemed to have everything looking very nice, and the food tasted great!
The food is beyond satisfying to your tastebuds. The chefs are awesome and the service is great. One of my favorite eateries in the ville.
Love it .gluten free menu.
My favorite Pho in town. Tasty spring rolls too!
Delicious and more food than I could eat.
Birthday dinner of unPhogettable proportions! Food was DELICIOUS. Will def be eating here regularly. Our waitress was fantastic, staff were very friendly overall, and the atmosphere was very chill and laid back. Definitely a great place for Oriental cuisine and prices were very reasonable. More...
Taste is a great spot. Been going there for 10 years, have never been disappointed
Great food quality, good prices, and great service. These locations are run by an owner who truly cares about his customers. One of the best places in town for Thai or other Asian food. More...
I got the crispy noodles and loved it. Huge portion, enough for two meals and very tasty.
Excellent food, humongous portion sizes, friendly staff - this place has it all!
Great place and as always great food.
Fair price for a fair bento box, which was filling. Other menu items seem just a bit pricy if you’re budgeting but the quality appears to be worth it. Will probably return to try the pricier menu items on a payday weekend. More...
Food and service was wonderful. We usually eat elsewhere for pho but decided to try Taste and we loved it! Would definitely recommend eating here!
I called ahead and placed an order for pickup. I asked for extra sriracha on the side. The lady on the phone was incredibly sweet. When I walked in the atmosphere of the place was inviting and I was greeted by a cashier with a welcoming voice. I reminded her about the sriracha and was told there was one in there but she gave me an extra just in case. The customer service was amazing and the food was incredible. I will be going back as often as I can. More...
So delicious I like the bagel roll
Amazing service and food every time!!
This is an outstanding choice for sushi.
Wonderful owner and fantastic food!
I love this place
Great Food and great service! Sushi is very fresh!
Tasty pan-Asian food. Crowded on Friday night.
Excellent food. Noodle and curry dishes are fantastic. Great service.
Went for lunch and the restaurant was nearly empty. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. Food was very good and came out quickly. Would definitely eat here again.
The location had great food but it took a while for a waitress to stop by and help us, after that she was friendly and attentive.
Food and atmosphere is great!!!
Staff is very friendly, and the food tastes like candy. I eat here all the time.
Very good asian food, little spensive.
Delicious food, great service! Try the lime beef!
Great food, friendly staff, big menu. Great happy hour deals!
It takes forever to get your food, but can't deny that it tastes great.
Great food, friendly staff. Have enjoyed several times for dinner. Suffers from a lack of lunch specials. I came here today, ordered two of the cheapest sushi rolls and hot tea. With tip it came to $20. Too expensive for lunch. There is a nearby Sushi restaurant right down the road that has a two roll lunch special that comes with a soup or salad. That's more food at a similar quality for half the price. Fix the "too expensive for lunch"' issue and I'll gladly come back again. As it is, I'll still eat here for dinner, but lunch is out of my budget. More...
The pho was great and the sushi was fresh.
The fish is so fresh. Definitely one of the best sushi places.
I ordered the pho and it's great. Regular size is enough for me, but maybe someone can try large one which the noodle and meat become more. The price was acceptable! Recommend you guys try once! If you are Chinese and wanna try boba milk tea... well I do not think it's worth haha. Thai milk tea is too much sugar... More...
I've gone here a few times and have not written a review because I forget but each time I go eat to this wonderful place, I always have the same results which is fabulous tasting food with great service. Love love this place! Highly recommend it. More...
Taste is one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in Gainesville and is super convenient for a quick bite! The location near Youfit is a little small, so you may have to wait for a table or split your party between a couple in order to fit. The waiting staff is comprised of students who are extremely nice and cater to anything you may need. They are by far the best part of the restaurant! In terms of food, the pho is probably the best in Gainesville and makes the perfect hangover cure! The pho portions are pretty standard but you can always upgrade the size for $2 more. For appetizers, I suggest the spring or summer rolls. They are stuffed with huge shrimp and come with a delightful peanut dipping sauce. My favorite is the F12 (egg noodles wih pork wontons and bbq pork) and the kimchi fried rice. Make sure to ask for chili oil on the side!Taste offers a ton of deals throughout the week, such as bogo drinks, etc. So make sure to check them out on the chalkboard near the entrance. You can also get a stamp card for special deals once you reach a certain amount of visits. Finally, there is a $3 off coupoun using the GCM app! More...

This is probably my favorite pho house in Gainesville. The environmental is good, the music is good, the staff is nice.
Our go to for when we don't want to cook.
First time here and I had a great experience - tried the Pho Tai Bo Vien, which was beef soup with rice noodles, sliced beef, & meatballs. Was definitely a great choice, tasted great. They have daily specials so I’ll be coming back! Great service too. More...
Going to taste is like eating food from home
Always friendly service with more than enough to eat with every order. Best bowl of pho in Gainesville
Good service and good ramen!
Fantastic food good choices and Carolina was very patient and helpful. This is a must stop in Gainesville don't miss the Vietnamese iced coffee
I come here a lot and the best place to have pho in the city of gainesville, closest thing to the authentic taste of pho. My boyfriend loves the food and devours it up:) the only downfall today was that they have Katsu but not the right sauce and it just didn't fit like the way I expected and it is more on the thicker side than the thinner version of Katsu. Overall my server was so sweet and tried accommodating as much as possible which is why I gave another star. But overall slightly disappointing but I'd come back for a different item. More...
Took on the Pho Challenge and set a new record. Search on YouTube "1.6 Gallon Taste Pho and Noodles House Florida"

Service & food was amazing!
Some of the best Pan Asian food I’ve had. I love the place.
Yum! As a consumer in a restaurant, I like to think of my experience as it is on that day and in that restaurant. This place delivered some incredibly fresh food to our table. We ordered the paradise roll which included coconut shrimp. Totally unexpected and delicious. I ordered the crispy noodle bowl and was blown away by the melding of tastes. My husband ordered the pho. Once again it was great. This was our experience on this day. Please do not insult others by belittling their reviews if you don't have the same experience. Life is an adventure More...

Food is great and the server
The Pho is so delicious, I order the large so I have enough to take home. They have many choices of noodles and other options plus boba tea.

I have had food from Taste for over a year and it is lovely to eat.
Vegan Pho available!!! My go-to place during lunch hours and the staffs are great. We prefer the 39th location over the 34th though.
My search for the best Vietnamese in Gainesville brought me in to Taste and it has quickly come to be of my go-to places in town. Taste won my heart with their Summer Rolls. These are probably the best Summer Rolls ever (no hyperbole)! These suckers are huge and so are the succulent shrimp tucked inside. The peanut dipping sauce is close to perfection - great flavor and consistency, which is hard to come by. The rolls come out fresh and warm. I'm in heaven for the 2 minutes it takes me to inhale them. Don't walk out of here without trying these! The Pho is also delicious here. The broth is seasoned wonderfully and the beef is thick and moist. Not the best I've ever had but definitely a craveable and consistent concoction.It's too bad the service is hit or miss. It's really the only thing holding this place back from being 5 stars. The last time I was there it took more than 30 minutes to get our food and we were the only ones in the place. The server was unapologetic but they did take 10% off the bill. There have been other times when the service was fast and friendly. More...
I love it. Here now our sever Tyler is a breath of fresh chill air. He is extremely knowledgeable and you don't even need to say anything he almost already know what you like. I'll be back!
Always great service and the food never disappoints. I love this place so much I’m here every week. I love bringing my friends here any chance that I get. �����
After our local Pho place closed in Ocala. We discovered this hidden gem. Always great food and superior service!
