We were terribly dissapointed by the food; the spring rolls were flavorless and both main dishes we ordered were very sweet. Other items on the menu might be better, but we will not be going back to find out. The service was very friendly.

We've tried most of Charlottesville's Thai restaurants, and this seems to be the best. They definitely have the most friendly staff, and they love kids!

Go early to get the summer special rolls. They were gone by 6pm on a Thursday! Was non-plussed with the Tom Yum soup. That's all I had, but will stop by next time I'm in town for a taste of a spicier dish.

We went to Tara Thai as it was walking distance to our hotel and because the restaurant was located in a strip mall we did not have high expectations.

We were agreeably surprised by the chic modern decor and the nice ambiance and the food and the service were excellent.

We sat in one of their booths which was really cool.

We ordered the shrimp cakes as appetizer and I had the kee Mao goon gai and my husband some other flat noodle dish with seafood and crab meat on top.

It was really nice that we could order how spicy we want our dishes to be prepared.

We really enjoyed our food, atmosphere and service. We eat our fare share of Thai food back in Denver and we would go back to any Tara Thai any time! It was great!
