Just had our second fabulous dinner at Tara Kitchen. Wish we lived closer. Sit at the bar near the stove and watch the amazing dance as staff cook and serve food in a tiny space.

Delicious tea, cozy atmosphere, and wonderful food. The service was very good and friendly. My 5 year old devoured her meal. Would definitely recommend. A nice alternative to a million unimaginative Italian restaurants in the area. Well done!

The flavors at this place were incredible. Definitely a place to eat at when you are in Schenectady. The only thing I would change is using thighs instead of breasts in their chicken dishes.

I have been there twice. The place is small, everyone is very friendly and the food is great. Very authentic Moroccan food!

I had a recommendation from a colleague to visit Tara Kitchen and it was definitely a good call! Great food, good service and a really nice atmosphere. I like more down to earth venues where the place is buzzing and you definitely get that here....More

I'd agree: Let the server know and it shouldn't be a problem. They were so accommodating to us, even "holding" the kitchen open as we came in just before closing.
