It's no longer the only Thai restaurant in town, but it remains most folks' favorite. With enticing dishes such Evil Jungle Princess, who can blame them? A wide variety of vegetarian options are among the curries, rice and noodle dishes on the menu. Satays and Tom Yum Gai soup are also favorite options. The staff is very willing to customize the dishes to fit your desired level of spice and your dietary restrictions. Prices run from USD10-15 and full bar service is available. The dining room is Asian-style sparse but welcoming. An Asian beer makes a great accompaniment to the food.
food was fantastic.
we live in chelsea, NYC and i've been to most of the menupages 4+* places on the island, so the bar was set high. calamari was best i've had at any type of restaurant. red chix curry was amazing. prices great, portions large. g/f got the catfish. just durned good.
service was only ok. caution to those going there; see #3:
1) person who became our server passed us several times before acknowledging us. another server acknowledged us after about 10.
2) finally came over after about 15 min.
3) not definite, but we suspect the server was trying for a double tip. when check came, it had 15% added for party of two; i don't remember anything mentioned in the menu, except for parties of 6 (8?) or more. we paid w/ credit card; no mention of the tip when receipt came. the bill did not accompany the credit card receipt when it came back for me to sign.
i left no further tip. we usually give 20% for competent service; more if better. this is the first time this has happened to us. we're both professionals in our mid-40s.
i'd go back, but would call the tip being added to the server's attention next time.
After reading the reviews, my family decided to visit Dara. The food was great; however, I pesonally wasn't too thrilled with the Evil Jungle Princess, it was filled with too many mushrooms. But the other dishes were great! I will definitely revisit! :)
We chose Dara Thai based on reviews read on Yahoo and ordered a clear chicken, mushroom and lemongrass soup followed by Evil Jungle Princess chicken for me and Panang chicken for my husband. Both the soup and the entrees were delicious, comparable to the best Thai food I have had anywhere. My husband's Jasmine Tea was weak and tasteless even after steeping for 20 minutes. The ambiance is casual and the restaurant was fairly loud--this is a place I would go for excellent food with a crowd of friends but not for an intimate dinner.
I love the peanut sauce on all of the food, however, this time it was a little bitter. The service was good but the server was a little uncertain about the food. The price rose since last year, but it is still reasonable.
My husband decided to take me out for Thai food on my birthday (I'd never had Thai before). We ended up at Dara Thai and I just couldn't believe what I'd been missing all these years. I have been there a number of times since then and no matter what new dish I try, it is always incredible. I will say that the Evil Jungle Princess is quite possibly the best dish I have ever had in my life!!!
We lucked into dining here just by cruising by and looking in the windows. we were huhgry, tired and cranky. We found:great food, great service and all our crankiness evaporated. We had a steamed fish with ginger that was just outstanding.
Everything alse really wonderful as well.
We stayed in Flagstaff for a couple of days in March 2005. The food is pure pleasure for the taste buds and for less $$ than it seems possible. If you are going to eat at one place in Flagstaff - eat there.
