“Thai gem in the Far West”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

It doesn't seem grand on the outside but it's cozy inside. Very good but little restaurant. The two people who were there made sure we were seated, even though the place was crowded. the prices are really reasonable and it's a good place to share what you eat/for take out. Some tourists and locals were there (mostly Asians). They have a scale for spiciness level, which is quite nice. Remember, if you take something already spicy, you might want to scale down a little. as I've heard 3 was really spicy, I ordered 2/5 but it was mild. (I'm used to cooking with Sriracha, a mild hot sauce.) We took beef fried rice 2/5 (not a lot of heat but great, great flavor with veggies), chicken curry 2/5 (nice heat, a lot of sauce, yummy) and chicken pad thai 1/5 (great flavor from sauce, lots of noodles).

“Good Homestyle Thai Cuisine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Ate an early dinner of Pad Thai and Tom Yum. Both were delicious; Pad Thai was sweet and seemed to he missing an ingredient or was overwhelmed by the sweetness. Tom Yum had chunks of vegetables. A different way of preparing. Atmosphere had modern Thai music playing and was roomy with Thai decor, a small-town feel. As a plus, Dara has beer from Japan, Thailand, China and domestics.

“Worst thai food ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

Horrible food- curry dish ridiculously salty - beef and chicken in the noodle dish were both totally dried and shriveled up- barely edible, vegetables were straight out boiled- not blanched and stir fried in wok. We are lovers of Thai food
so stopped for lunch on way to the GC from Vegas and it was incredibly disappointing. On the plus side the lunch special price was reasonable and their idea of medium level spice was perfectly in line with ours. But would never return nor recommend to anyone.

“Fan-THAI-stic !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Love, Love THIA food, and this place will not disappoint. Aromas will begin to satisfy the moment of arrival. Pricing is extremely well suited to portions. And menu offers heat index from very mild to very hot. Location off main boulevard but do not be dismayed, once you arrive you palate will be over joyed!

“Pleasant dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Went here for the first time. I come to Williams several times a year on business on Route 66 .
Met friends here who recommended Dara Thai Cafe. We all three had a good meal. From spicy to not spicy.
Not too many choices in Williams thus would be a good one.
