“Fresh Ingredients & Best Sauces!!”
Reviewed April 10, 2011

It's always good @ Tara Thai in PV. And for vegetarians or vegans - it's fantastic! I highly recommend the the Grand Canyon with fried tofu. I was never a tofu fan until I had it the way that Tara Thai makes it in this dish - utter perfection! I'm a fan! You can also have the Grand Canyon (and other dishes) with a choice of meats if your not veg. The vegetables are always fresh & the spices are interesting and delicious. Don't miss it - and it your not one for spicy - don't let that keep you away - you control the level of spiciness. It's really yummy, try it, you'll love it! :)

“The Best in Prescott”
Reviewed January 28, 2011

There are 3 Thai restaurants within the Prescott, Prescott Valley community. Tara Thai II is by far the best out of the three. The other two are located near the downtown Prescott square and unfortunately, they cannot hold a candle to this restaurant. Traditional Thai Cuisine without any western influences. They offer 4 levels of heat, number 3 is my recommendation. That level seems to accentuate the different spices used to make their dishes. Our last meal consisted of chicken satay for appetizers, Tom Ka soup, Pad Thai noodles and pompano fried fish. For two people, we were stuffed. The fish is served with the head attached. If that's going to throw your appetite off, you can ask to have it removed. Coupled with some veggies and a red curry sauce, the fish is simply amazing!!! You may find yourself pouring some of the curry sauce over your rice, makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

Located next to a Circle K gas station and with the small parking lot, you wouldn't think it would be that good based on location...WRONG!!! There is an intersection located at the gas station that you will want to turn into. Be careful for there are SPEED CAMS at that intersection. Take the frontage road in front of the gas station and you will see the restaurant on your right. I plan on going there every other month and trying out the other dishes.

“Best Thai Food in the Prescott area”
Reviewed October 17, 2010

The food at Tara Thai is consistently delicious, and the service is prompt, friendly...always. Curries are delightful as are their desserts. The menu items are numerous. Lunch is very economical. Tara Thai is a casual restaurant that is a local favorite, for those that enjoy fantastic Thai food. You can dine in and enjoy the numerous plants, flowers and fish throughout the restaurant, or call in your take out order to enjoy at home.

The Arizona Heatwave (red curry) is so perfectly balanced that I think it could even be mixed with cream, eggs and sugar to create a unique and spicy ice cream flavor! (Dibs on that idea, people.) The Sweet Grand Canyon curry is also lovely, as are the Thai classics; Pad Thai and Tom Yum Soups.

Tara Thai has added a wonderful and gorgeous Thai Massage Center next door. I recommend Thai massage first, followed by a perfect lunch or dinner.

“Best Thai food I have had outside of Thailand”
Reviewed October 16, 2010

Having recently moved to the area from California, was nervous about dining out. Agreed the ambiance isn't great, but the staff and food are great. Have not had a bad meal here. Ingredients are fresh, you control the spiciness, and it's always a pleasure to eat here.

“Fresh food delicious every time!”
Reviewed September 9, 2010

The ambiance of Tara Thai leaves a little to be desired. But the wait staff is friendly and the food is delicious. I have never had anything there i didn't enjoy. The best thing about Tara Thai is that the ingredients always taste fresh.
