We had a ladies night out at Tantra. We started with lettuce wraps and beef jerky appetizers. These were excellent! You have to try the lettuce wraps...they were awesome! The atmosphere is dimmed lighting and cozy. They had places to sit outside on a nice evening. The service was pretty good, but as the night went on we began to... More

We stopped here for lunch on a road trip, based on Trip Advisor reviews, and were not entirely disappointed; indeed, I'm pretty sure we'll give it another try on the way back. The seafood noodles were terrific - perfectly seasoned, lovely shrimp and clams, very satisfying in every way, including luscious basil. On the other hand, the Mongolian Beef was... More

I like the Korean ribs. It's marinated and I usually get the peppers served in a tray (if you like to make it spicy). They have excellent menu to choose from. Nice to have wine while dining. It's exotic foods. I like the Thai iced tea, also. If the weather is nice. I like to sit outside to eat under... More

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 dish with asparagus was delicious and nicely presented. I... 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.
