“Enjoyable dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We visited Nara Thai for the first time as it was close to our accommodation. The host was very welcoming and the restaurant almost empty which was surprising for a busy long weekend. All I can say is that the locals don't know what they are missing. The food was excellent. The service friendly and efficient. An added bonus was the live entertainment. They have a great singer/guitarist who made that evening that must more enjoyable. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

“Great Food and Entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I went to the Nara Thai with a group of friends on a Saturday night and we all thoroughly enjoyed the night. As well as excellent Thai food (there is also Indian food available - but the chef is Thai), the restaurant had entertainment. It appears the new owners, one of whom is a singer, have decided to have regular Saturday musical entertainment and this made the night. Judy (the owner who sings) sang a number of songs, and with a small dance floor full of people the atmosphere was excellent.
Thoroughly enjoyed the food and the night - would recommend it to everyone.
