It is not often that we come across an impressive extraordinary Thai restaurant, it is simply one of a surprise find. The Dara's Thai & Lao Cuisine, is exceptionally very good, the menu has many authentic traditional Thai and Lao dishes. We had the Eggplant with chicken, and the Steamed fish and vegetables, with Jasmine steamed rice, Thai tea. Delicious!... More

Had enough Pho and other Asian choices? Then this place is for you. Homemade sausage, tiny fried quail, and VERY hot curry. Properly hot, not the typical American stuff. Service not so friendly, but hey, the food's excellent.

I started with baby spinach leaves with peanut and coconut on top very pretty served with a tamarind sauce. then I had stir fry vegetables with wide rice noodles with a mild black bean sauce just the right amount of flavor for the rice noodles. My guest had three delicious thin cut pork chops which he ate with relish.
