About Us

Taste of Thailand was established in Omaha, Nebraska in 2004 by Chalie and Areeya Malhotra. In 2013 Areeya and her husband Chalie made the difficult decision to retire, but were comforted by the fact the business has been handed over to the capable hands of their sons, Faruk and Rick.

Born and raised in Chiang Mai, Thailand; Faruk and Rick Wanna immigrated to the United States in 1994 and attended Millard South High School. Faruk went on to obtain a degree from UNO while Rick began his full time career building his skills learning to cook and manage the family business. Faruk continued as a supporting staff member throughout the years while working full time as an IT. In 2013, with their respective families full support, the two brothers decided it was time to set out on their own and took over Taste of Thailand to serve up their own delicious Thai cuisine!

Taste of Thailand serves up authentic, mouthwatering Thai cuisine. Whether you’re ordering lunch or dinner, there’s a wide variety of flavorful dishes available. Feast on favorites like the lemon grass chicken, Bangkok chicken, pad thai noodles, and the decadent sweet rice with mango or Thai custard.

“This place is fantastic!"


This place is fantastic. The owner (Rick) and his bother are Thai natives who brought their best to Omaha. The curry dishes are really good. I usually get a #7 and that is about right for my taste. The cod in curry sauce is one that you will love. I try different curries with different dishes. Rick is happy to make it however you want it. Just ask. You won’t be disappointed in this place.
