Tantra has been consistently excellent.

We have dined at Tantra regularly for years. The waitstaff is more polished than at other local restaurants. They know the menu, carry themselves well, and do not refer to a couple as "guys". Decor is pleasant and the soft, jazzy background music stays in the background. My organic pearl mushroom... read more

Food is tasty and reasonably priced. Calamari on the appetizer menu is probably the best in the QC. I haven't seen a Thai restaurant (there are at least 2 others in the area) that has calamari on the menu. Pad thai and chicken fried rice are excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want Thai food.

The pear chicken salad was bland, but the stir fry was delicious. Decor was upscale and relaxing, although a bit dark.

Always have what's on the menu, in contrast to other QC thai restaurants...especially the one right down the street. Great food and atmosphere. Wish it wasn't quite so dark but other than that, no complaints.

we always enjoy dining here. The offerings are diverse and delicious. The service is always excellent and the ambiance is great. As a vegetarian I find several delicious options to choose from. My carnivore husband has enjoyed each dish that he has tried. They have delicious martinis and a nice offering of craft-type beers. We are never disappointed.

We always order the spicy entrees. We have been to many Thai type restaurants all over the country especially in Chicago. We have as yet to find an equal to this restaurant. The venue is romantic and awesome. The service is impeccable and the food is a fantastic value in taste and presentation.

I have eaten here many times and it never disappoints. The service is always good and you never wait long for your meal. The flavor is excellent and the food is always fresh. They also have a nice bar menu. Specialty martinis and interesting import beers. You get a fantastic meal and a great price!

I've eaten at other tantra locations before and I will have to say that the service is courteous and they checked up every 5 minutes which I thought was great. And the yellow curry was even better. The sauce wasn't runny but it wasn't too thick, and the flavor wasn't too strong so you can taste the potatoes and carrots... More

This restaurant is much larger than it appears from outside. There is also an outdoor seating area, but we chose to sit inside because it was a hot, humid day. I had the Panang Curry. Delicious flavor with a bit of a kick. Our server was polite and prompt. The menu has a lot of items I'd like to try.... More

This restaurant is in a building located in a industrial park. Despite that, atmosphere was above average. Food is very good, nice selection, priced right. Service is slow, very slow. There are too few people working requiring the few employees to take on multiple roles. Example, ordered martinis and beer. Beer came quick, martini came much later due to no... More
