Thai Terrific

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.

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

During several visits for both lunch and dinner, I have found the food excellent, only surpassed by the service. This was one of the first restaurants I visited in Eugene, and continues to be my go-to destination for Thai food. Although not "genuine" Thai for the most part, it is a good representation of the culture, and the portions are... More

Four of us had a Sunday evening dinner at Ta Ra Rin that was what we had hoped for, but it took a bit of work to get it. The staff seemed distracted, stressed somehow, although there didn't seem to be an especially large crowd and there was no wait to be seated. The source of their service problem may... More

Both times I've been to Eugene I ate at this place and both times I regretted it. Sure everyone is recommending it, but you know how it is, fool me once, fool me twice.. etc. My last experience was disappointing on many levels. First there is a long line, second once we got seated the waitress did not arrive for... More

We ordered 5 different items for 5 people and each one was yummy, but the mango dish was outstanding. We had leftovers for the next day. Seating is crowded, but the service was great.

Service was hectic from too many tables being served by one person but it wasn't worth deducting from the rating. The food was fantastic. Catfish red curry was great. Mango, chicken green curry was also very good. My wife and I each ate half the serving and then switched and we both found the dishes to be very good.

I can't say enough food things. This is our favorite Thai restaurant, possibly our favorite restaurant entirely in Eugene. The food is always delicious. Try the spicy cashew noodle. The Thai iced tea is to die for. Service is always fantastic. It's super clean. LOVE this place.

Good food and reasonable price. Not a place for special occasions, but good place for casual food. Lunch and dinner are great.
