We went as a group to Tara Thai on the Friday of Chinese New Year. Everywhere near Chinatown was booked out, but we were happy when Tara Thai could squeeze us in. The atmosphere was lacking, the staffing was insufficient for such a busy time of year, and it took a long time to order and recieve our food. We... More

We first went to Tara Thai about seven years ago... it was a regular haunt and a place that we loved coming back to. I loved sitting upstairs on the thai cushions. We came back just a few weeks ago and although the upstairs wasn't open, the food and experience was just as amazing as I remembered. We had a... More

We had brilliant service, good prices and delicious food at this restaurant. There were plump prawns in the dishes, and lovely, tender mears in yummy sauces, and the bar-b-que duck was moist, and tasty. The only let down was when I went to the bathroom. It was dirty, and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a month. This spoiled... More

Ok, so maybe a Tuesday night is not the best time to visit. And maybe Thai food is best enjoyed with friends, rather than solo. But for me, eating alone mid-week, Tara fell short of some of the previous TA reviews. I love restaurants like Tara, that have introduced generations of Australians to the joys of chilli, lemongrass, galangal and... More

If you looking for a cheap night out with byo and great food this the place. Can't say enough good things about this place, they have generous portions. If you order something with seafood they aren't stingey with the prawns like some other places. The service is great, the staff are lovely and they make sure to keep your booze... More

Great central location and friendly staff, Plus a wide range of items on the menu to suit any budget. Can definitely recommend the Pad Thai, Beef Massaman, Money Bags, Satay Chicken and Coconut rice. Always family favourites! They also do take-away and delivery, give them a try :)
