Tara Thai Restaurant Review

: Owner Nick Srisawat has ventured where those at many other local Thai restaurants have feared to go. He presents authentic Thai flavors in a flamboyant style. This has made his restaurants magnets for crowds, who return time and again to indulge in honey-roasted duck, green papaya salad, Pattaya noodles and Tara Thai's signature dish, grilled whole rockfish wrapped in banana leaf. A line of refreshing tropical drinks (with or without alcohol) and offbeat tropical sweets, such as the young coconut pie, effectively wrap up a meal at Tara Thai. Also effective: The restaurant's cool aqua colors and deep-sea d├ęcor. Other locations.
