Delicious and Fresh

Came up to Taos for the day with my family and drove around looking for a restaurant that was open during the day after Chrismas. Most places don't seem to open until night, when the skiers are all back from the slopes. We drove by this place a couple of times and settled on it. The food is... read more

My boyfriend and I were traveling through Taos on a budget. We wanted something filling, delicious and healthy for around $7 and that's what we got! Yum.

We got back from Thailand last summer and I had some yearning for Thai food so we went to Dara Thai. I was extremely pleased to have Thai food as good as the wonderful Thai food I had in Thailand. I have had lunch and dinner there many times in the last six months and sampled most of their menu... More

This Dara Thai here in Taos is certainly a one of a kind. Yes this place has gone through its management changes and I can honestly say I've been eating there for over a year now sometimes 3-4 times a week. More so for Lunch because it's inexpensive and VERY, consistently good. Dinner is just as good and offer more... More

We were searching for another restaurant suggest by the hotel clerk and could not find it but had noticed Dara Thai in passing. Thai food being one of our favorites, we stopped in. The waiter was a very nice and polite guy. Quite reserved but very attentive. The food is not fast, I think they actually cooked it. Unusual in... More

We ordered Chicken sate, dumplings, Tom Ka soup with steamed tofu, Panang curry with chicken and extra broccoli. All was delicious. I prefer my curry with a bit thicker, the sauce was a bit light, but still very flavorful. Our 6 and 11 year old children also loved it. AS a gauge, level 3 spiciness which is what we ordered...

I hate reviewing a place negatively but unfortunately Dara Thai needs some help. The appetizer rolls were great but the cook was way too heavy with the fish sauce on the Pad Thai. We waited for some time for our meal which isn't unexpected when we order Thai but then to have it taste so strong of the fish sauce... More

We come to Taos often and have explored just about every restuarant there is and finally came to this one just a few monthes ago. We fell in love with it instantly. The atmosphere is the only downside. It's a small little spot that seats about 30 people and could use some touch ups. But the food is just amazing!... More
