Reviews of Tara Thai

After having their lunch special the "Nua Sub" around 1:30pm, I went back to work and after about an hour I realized that I wasn't feeling well. I had a small breakfast around 8 am (piece of bread and a tea), so at first I thought maybe I ate too fast or my stomach was too empty when I ate lunch. The major symptoms starting setting in quickly, nausea, dizziness, and a raised temperature. 10 minutes later I was throwing up violently at the bathroom in my work. Felt much better afterward, but I've decided that I'm never going back to Tara Thai or any of their locations ever again. They serve tainted food and maybe it was a fluke and only a one time thing, but my friend who had lunch with me had a terrible time in the bathroom too. Lesson learned, don't even trust established restaurants to serve you a good meal. Definitely calling management about this one and giving them a piece of my mind.

Ordered takeout. entrees and appetizers. All <br /> tasted the same (tasteless)t and sitting in thin, soppy sauce, The rice was gluey and the side sauces were sparse. Nothing had any heat at all. Difficult to do in a Thai Restaurant. We had specified that we wanted it spicy.. Very disappointing experience.Ordered friom Tara Thai because I thought it as a sure thing. Will not order or go there again.

I used to like having a quick lunch here, but after my experience today I am never going back. I called in an order for pick up, got there and it's not what I ordered. Instead of the waiter trying to be nice and offer me another option he stood there arguing with me. I'm not thast person who always thinks the customer is right, but in this instance he was dead wrong. I too own a restaurant (Caribbean) and love supporting othe rrestaurant businesses. I specifically don't eat their scallops and mussels because those are two very important seafoods to me. They always have this old, extra dead taste that I don't like. This was just an ok place to eat---now they are on my "never" to eat list!

service was substandard, rude, and unprofessional. as a student,who works as a restaurant hostess, i don't appreciate the lack of attentiveness of a staff who clearly discriminates against young adults. the hostile attitude of the staff was clearly aimed at our table.

I actually found this place by accident. We ended up having dinner there. It is the best i've had so far..

Never had a bad meal and have been going for over a decade. I go to the Rockville and Rio (Gaithersburg) branches.

A reliable source for solid Thai food for year and will likely continue to be one for years to come. You won't regret eating here.<br /> ~

Been many times- never had a bad meal. Food is well-prepared, tasty, and is only marred by smaller portions. Highly recommended.

Bangkok Garden is by far the best if you want wholesome satisfying thai foods.
