Best Thai food we have had!

My wife and I frequent this place. With work we travel a lot and have found this is the best Thai food we have ever had anywhere. The Mango Fried Rice with Chicken and Shitake Mushroom/Asparagus dish are wonderful. The sour soup is the best we have ever had with a very unique flavor. I... read more

I like this spot for my girls nights out. We can get martinis from the Pearl across the hall and have a terrific meal in a lovely resturant. I usually start with the sesame shrimp appetizer (not on the menu but they serve it anytime as it's sometimes the special) with the sesame chicken. I get the peanut sauce on... More

Surprise excellent true Thai dishes (behind a loud, popular riverfront bar). We dined off almost the entire list of appetizers-- without a single miss. Not as spicy as some Thai dishes can be, which was fine with us. We only hope the locals find and appreciate what they have.

I have visited Tantra on two occasions. They have some unique dishes with good flavor. The drunken noodles are very good. My only complaint is that the dining room isn't very loud and I have never heard them play music...so it feels like everyone can hear your conversation. Some dividers between tables would make a big difference.

The Thai cuisine is very well prepared. The menu has a wide variety of offerings. The appetizer selection is good. The atmosphere of this restaurant located in the Muscatine Hotel across from the riverfront is wonderful. I have never been disappointed with a meal here.

Everything I've had here is excellent. The appetizers are really good, as well as the entrees. A Nice atmosphere. Very nice waitress. We were trying to take a picture of our family there and she ran over and offered to take it for us. Easily my favorite restaurant in Muscatine.

Our son and daughter have traveled to Thailand and were our guests at the Tantra this summer. They both enjoyed the food, although they wished that there were some spicier sauces. My husband and I like the change of pace.

This is the best restaurant in Muscatine with no close competitors. Ingredients are very fresh; dishes varied; and, service is very good.

Chinese owners make poor attempt at Thai food. Loaded with sliced bell peppers, doesn't resemble real Thai food
