We had not come back to Tara Thai since our initial visit in their first month as it was terrible. But I was jonesing for Thai and it was too cold to venture to DC so we gave them another try. I am glad we did! The Pad Thai Jae was flavorful and the Pad Woon Sen had nice flavor... More

We visit here often. The food is good and the service is always very fast. The booths along the windows are comfortable. A great place to visit if you want to be able to carry on a conversation during dinner without yelling at the others in your party.

I asked Tara Thai to make a dish for me that I ate while I was in Egypt, it wasn't the same, but it was tasty

We've been several times. Will definitely return. The curry puffs remind me of samosas. The thai iced tea and coffee are delish. The pad thai is typical. I would order again.

Not much from the outside, the décor is modern and not too Thai ... but the food is great and just right for your dime. We particularly enjoyed the coconut milk soup and the salads. They also have a fairly nicely priced lunch menu and a vast assortment of imported Asian beers too. Enjoy!

I needed to settle and have lunch somewhere near the UMD, College Park campus. This is a 10-minute drive away. I asked the person working there (I was the first into the restaurant; it was still empty) to bring me some food at his discretion. He did. I do not know what it was, but it was very good. Simple,...

Went here for business while at a tradeshow. Won Ton soup was good. Garden salad was fresh. Pad Thai was decent but good portion. Pad Sewi with chicken had thicker noodles than I am used too. Good portion though. Food was hot. Service decent.

We had an app, three entrees, and drinks and the bill was priced reasonably. Tasty food, good service (could be a bit more attentive), and nice atmosphere. Nice to have a quality, laid-back place like this in the Arts District.

Never disappointed! The menu is chock full of flavorful items... I'm a seafood lover and my choices are usually with shrimp & scallops which are always plump and fresh.
