I was visiting for a conference so I just ordered takeout. Loved the atmosphere while waiting. My order was ready in just 5 minutes!!! Everything was delicious. Would love to return to eat there

Gorgeous food, lovely decor and fantastic service all at a reasonable price - couldn't ask for more for a meal out and all qualities that have made Tara Thai (including under its previous guises!) a regular for us for 6 years. I find the food superior to a lot of the top rated Thai restaurants in London!

We go here once every couple of months and have done for about 5 years. Best Thai around. Staff are fantastic and service is very good. Highly recommended.

This was our 2nd choice as 1st choice was fully booked, so glad we visited too. This was after theatre so wasn't sure we'd get served, it was no issue. The food was absolutely delicious & the service great - especially the owner - very amusing lady! She even gave me a shoulder massage while I chose the wine!!

I love asian food and especially thai food from a country I already visited. The decoration is beatiful, the service is excellent and the athmosphere is friendly.

We visited this restaurant to celebrate a friends birthday and were really pleased withe the quality of the food and service. My starter (toong tong) and main (red curry with sticky rice) were very tasty, washed down with cold, crisp Chang beer. We will definitely be coming back.
