So I went to Tara Thai last Saturday with one of my friends as we both love this restaurant! The food is absolutely delicious and the decor and atmosphere is really lovely! It was my fourth visit, I have been with my family and boyfriend before and I couldn't fault it! When I went on last Saturday, the place was... More

It's a shame that this establishment has received poor marks below. How?! Perhaps Tara Thai was having a bad day.. From my visits (plural) to TT I have only tasted food as good as Thailand and service just as warm as is the custom 6000 miles away. I will be returning soon.

avoid at all costs! visited this restaurant for a meal with friends, service was dreadful, took half an hour for anyone to take our order, kept ordering drinks which would never arrive. A lot of tables were complaining about service, getting the orders wrong etc. The food was nothing to rave home about, infact left all of us with dodgy... More

Went for meal with my fiance and another couple. Firstly throughout the evening, the service was absolutely terrible!! When ordering our food the waitress was too busy looking at another table (who were complaining) and we had to repeat our order several times. On several occasions we asked for drinks and never got them, it took 3 waitresses about 20... More

The menu is extensive, and the food is absolutely excellent. The decor is pleasant, and the restaurant is quite large, being able to cater for groups. I always have Thai green curry but this is one of the best I've tasted. The other dishes were just as good. The service is also very good. Nothing too much trouble. I loved... More

This was my first time trying Thai, and I can honestly say the food was amazing. The staff were very friendly, being new to thai they were very helpful in recommending a fabulous dish. The food was fresh, colourful and full of flavour. We will definitely be returning to try another dish or two. Great value for money.

Went recently after work for dinner and have been here many times. The portions are a little on the small side for the price, but its good quality and well cooked Thai. Its a shame they don't do a Sunday tasting menu to encourage more customers and enable you to try different dishes.
