Only Thai Restaurant in town, just ok

I'm from California where we have lots of really good Thai restaurants. This is the only Thai place in Taos and it's ok, nothing to write home about. My friend and I went there on a Saturday night, about 40 minutes until closing and there was no one else there. I ordered the chicken sweet and... read more

I ordered the yellow curry but was not to pleased. The meat was over cooked and the sauce over powered the dish. Their shrimp tempura was small for the price and had no vegetable's. The service was nice

OK for small-town Thai. Everything tasted fine, but the pad thai noodles were not as soft as they should have been. And the chicken in the red curry tasted like chicken, but didn't really have the proper texture — it was some kind of reconstituted "chicken food". In short, if you want a bit of thai food while visiting Taos,... More

My boyfriend and I were traveling through Taos on a budget. We wanted something filling, delicious and healthy for around $7 and that's what we got! Yum.

We got back from Thailand last summer and I had some yearning for Thai food so we went to Dara Thai. I was extremely pleased to have Thai food as good as the wonderful Thai food I had in Thailand. I have had lunch and dinner there many times in the last six months and sampled most of their menu... More

Most places don't seem to open until night, when the skiers are all back from the slopes. We drove by this place a couple of times and settled on it. The food is fragrant, fresh,... More
