Good Thai food

I have eaten at this restaurant many many times with family for dinner, and with friends at lunchtime during the week. If you are in a hurry, then you better go elsewhere. The servers are very nice and the chicken and noodle dish I like is very good, and leftovers reheat very well.

I've eaten there a number of times, go when its slow, or you will have to wait a long time to get served and it will be noisy when crowded. I'm not a great fan of thai food. Perhaps this explains why I have been consistently disappointed. Large portions, but ho hum stuff. Also on the pricey side, e.g., sixteen... More

This is my all time favorite Thai restaurant in Eugene. My Thai friends introduced me to the restaurant since 2001 and I have been hooked ever since.This is my must stop by spots every time we are in the area.

We have tried many Thai food restaurants over the years, and nothing compares to Ta Ra Rin. They use all fresh ingredients and no MSG. I am more adventurous with trying new dishes at Ta Ra Rin because I know everything is great!

As visitors to Eugene, we had no idea of good places to eat. Also, as Thai food afficionados, we wanted Thai. On Sunday night, the place was mobbed but we got a table in less than 10 minutes. The amount of food (Teriyaki Chicken and BBQ chicken) was enormous (enough for lunch the next day), the beer was cold, the... More

I love Thai food and have tried it around the state, well in Eugene, Salem, Portland, Bend and Medford, and Ta Ra Rin is the best. Great atmosphere with plenty of comfy booths and now they have a cocktail bar. Yum! My go to here is either Rad Na or Pad Kee Mao. If you are in need of a... More

Always pretty busy, this place offers all of the traditional Thai dishes you can find at most Thai places. The quality here seems to be top shelf, and a good value for the dollar. Definitely worth a try. Also a great drink menu.

My husband and I went here in a date night sans kids, and we were so impressed! We started off with the chicken satay, which was to die for. Hubby got shrimp pad Thai and loved it; I got the Pad Prik King and it was SO delicious. (I got the mild though - too wimpy to get too much... More

The restaurant always is picked as #1 in the Registered Guard Annual Poll in the city of Eugene for Tai food....and for good reason. It really is good, go early or make reservations

HONestly? We try Thai food everywhere bec cause we have NONE where we live. This was one of the best ever......great flavors, friendly service, super crowded and busy but only waited ten minutes. I would go out of my way to come to this place again. Great college town, that's for sure.
