OK for small-town Thai

OK for small-town Thai. Everything tasted fine, but the pad thai noodles were not as soft as they should have been. And the chicken in the red curry tasted like chicken, but didn't really have the proper texture — it was some kind of reconstituted "chicken food". In short, if you want a bit of thai... read more

I ordered the yellow curry but was not to pleased. The meat was over cooked and the sauce over powered the dish. Their shrimp tempura was small for the price and had no vegetable's. The service was nice

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.

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.
