I rated Tara Temple 3 stars because that's likely what my average score would be if I had to rate it every time I went there. The food is either amazing or it's terrible. This leads me to believe it all depends on whoever is...More

We had recently been to Japan, so we were really drawn to the torii gates. I loved the ambiance and appreciated the good service and tasty (albeit pricey) drinks. The sushi was good, as was the seaweed salad. The fried fish was rather fishy thought...More

Great food, drinks, and happy hour specials. I've always walked by this place in my neighborhood but only recently stopped in. My husband and I went for happy hour which last until 7:30pm. The deals were great and the food tasty. Nice happy hour spot!

This is a nice Thai restaurant that also has a whole page devoted to sushi. We ate from the Thai side, so can't judge the sushi. First of all, this is really nicely decorated--great decor! And in warmer weather there is patio seating. There's an...More
