“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We stopped here hungry for Thai. The food was great. The service was not-so-great. We waited a long time to get a table after the weather outside turned sour, and were passed up by a few customers that came after us. Once served, however, we enjoyed the food.

“Very good green curry with beef”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I have been multiple times to this place and need to say that the food is very good.
One thing to advice, if you are going for appetisers and entrees, never order together, all will be served at once. I never got used to this, certainly because I am used to take time to dine and savour.
But if know, and ordering in series, very good and enjoyable and still fast enough.

“Spurge with coworkers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Good food and service. My coworkers and I would occasionally go for lunch if we were celebrating a birthday or wanted to splurge. There was something for everyone on the menu.

“Nice duck with red curry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Quite a nice Thai. The duck was very good.
Found the choice little limited compared to other Thai I visited in the world.

“Dependable Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We were out on a date while waiting to pick up our daughter from the movies at Rio. We'd been to Tara Thai before and felt comfortable giving them another visit, and both had the dependable Pad Thai. The service was brisk, with the staff doing a good job of managing a pretty full house. They've never let us down and there's always something new to try on the memu (I had the fish cakes as an appetizer, which were a delightful new experience). Two thumbs up...
