Opened in August 2011, Tara Thai is already becoming a favourite with diners both in the locale and beyond. Beautifully refurbished to include oak panels and Thai motifs, the spacious dining area boasts an air of elegance and, capable of seating around 60 people, could never feel too crowded. Perhaps order a flowering tea and watch it bloom magically in a glass teapot while you peruse the menu. Glance down and you'll see beds of white rice artistically decorated with miniature vegetables and souvenir plaques from Thailand beneath the glass table tops.

Our meal began with complimentary Thai crackers followed by a clear, tangy soup, deep-fried spicy fishcakes and miniature pork spare ribs - deliciously succulent. Cooked according to the ways of a traditional Thai kitchen, dishes such as stir-fried vegetarian bean curd have a lovely crisp texture. My companion raved about the thinly sliced sirloin beef in creamy, flavoursome green curry sauce. Side dishes of rice noodles and sticky rice - which arrived in its own charming wicker basket - complemented the meal superbly, as did the refreshing house white and soft house red. Every need was catered to - this was a truly excellent meal in a delightful setting. There's no doubt we'll be heading here again.
