Really loved my visit to Tara Thai. I had the Phad Thai and my friend had Phad Mee. Both were fantastic. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and the staff were friendly and efficient. I will certainly return.

Having been very disappointed on a visit a couple of years ago we decided to give it another try but were sadly still unimpressed. The food lacked flavour and the real Thai sensations so will not go back. Also quite expensive for small portions

This is a large thai restaurant and the staff were helpful. They only stuck with the set lunch menu and would not deviate as I like thai soups with noodles. Was a bit pricey for lunch, but the food was ok

I was greeted warmly and ordered my drinks, which came quickly. They took my meal order, which again was served quite quickly. The Panang was lovely.
