Thai food in bread crumbs, greasy oil as if it where fish and chips and knock off rice. Worst Thai in our entire lives

Found it a nice enough restaurant, friendly and helpful staff. Maybe a little over priced with value for money, the food was nice enough, just not nice enough for my liking. Not sure what was going on with the lighting, but it kept going a little dark then went bright again! If it's a way of calling waiting staff, may... More

We were walking past the restaurant on the way home from a day on the beach, and decided to stop for something to eat. They weren't really open for another 15 minutes, but they let us in and were very accommodating and friendly. The place soon filled up, and no surprise as the food was delicious. Our only complaint was... More

Lovely tasting Thai food but small portions. Can get much better value for money elsewhere. One waitress had the name tag as 'doughnut' which I found offensive

We had an early reservation as we were going to the Palace Theatre. We were the first people in the restaurant at 6pm but it didn't take long before the restaurant was buzzing with dinner guests. The food was excellent, however I had wanted Prawn Massaman and they only has chicken or beef although Prawn was on the menu. If... More

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
