Their 10$ lunch is a great deal. The pad Thai and crispy pork dishes are delicious. Handy location, nice environment and friendly staff. I’d totally recommend this restaurant.

I have had lunch from Thai Tara three times in recent weeks. Twice as a takeaway and once sitting down with some colleagues. They have a $10 lunch special and it's great. Well cooked and well seasoned Thai food. A small restaurant but popular and...More
