My husband and I were staying in Union Square area and wanted Thai for dinner, searched reviews and decided to try Ta•ra. We found the atmosphere to be quiet and reflective of an Asian restaurant. Wait staff was very attentive but not too much. Food was as it was described in the menu. We had the Green Papaya Salad with Mango and Shrimp. Flavors were well melded, not too much lettuce but enough to give additional texture to the dish, very crisp and clean. We tried the Woon Sen soup which was a clear broth with glass noodles, vegetables, pork and shrimp. It was what we wanted to prepare us for the heavier foods to follow. Entrees were Tsunami Prawn and Panang Curry. I would have preferred a bit more fire to the Tsunami Prawn, but the vegetables were perfectly prepared and the shrimp not overcooked. The Panang with tofu was warm to the palette but had that creamy sauce. We tried the spicy noodles, a side dish for only $6 and it added more of the fire we come to love from Thai food. The staff indicated they are busy Monday-Friday but much slower on Saturdays. We used Open Table to reserve our table and it was waiting for us upon arrival. Overall we left full and very pleased with our meal.
