We came here for dinner on a Monday night to celebrate a birthday. The food was delicious, highly recommend the yellow curry. Service was very good although a little slow. This restaurant has a lovely feel to it, friendly staff and brilliant food. Will definitely be coming back soon...

Visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago just for a nice meal out. We went mid week so it was pretty empty which was initially a bit concerning but once the food came out I couldn't understand why it wasn't busier. The food was absolutely delicious. We had complimentary prawn crackers that actually tasted like prawn rather than the... More

We went to the Tara as two couples on a Saturday evening. Decor Some reviews have criticised the decor. I found it quite charming. Panelled wood and glazed tables. Toilets were fine. So perhaps things have been improved since some reviews. Food Loved it. Steamed dumplings to start and a chicken dish as main. My friends had a mixture of... More

Second visit to the place, the food was as I had remembered, very good! Great choice , the service was a little slow, we got our food, before the drinks.... Sadly the tables and decoration are getting a little grubby, it could do with a bit of TLC....

The food is good and fresh and the staff are friendly. The premises though could do with a deep clean and freshen up. One waiter who was nice and attentive had a dirty shirt and it was very off putting. I used the toilets and they were clean but the carpets in the stairwell leading to them were grubby. Certainly...

Me and two friends visited the Tara Thai on a Tuesday evening. Warm welcome, seated to our table. For starter we had the duck pancake rolls, satay chicken and cocunut prawns! Highly recommend all three starters!! Sticky rice is exactly what it describes.. Very sticky! Nice flavours! Great decor and very friendly young waiter! Will definitely be returning!
