Best Thai restaurant in CU! A great family-owned restaurant with good pricing and portion sizes. There is a huge menu with many different options. This is a great place to come and share plates family-style. Good service always! Try no spice or mild spice for starters if you’re new to the restaurant.

This is one of Champaign’s best kept secrets! We love coming in when we are visiting town. Best Pad Thai ever and great customer service.

I love this place. It is my favorite Thai food in America. I spent three weeks in Thailand between Kanchanaburi, Bangkok and Koh Tao and fell in love with the food. I’ve been to Thara Thai many times and tried several dishes. My personal favorites include: Thai iced tea, Thai iced coffee, fish cakes, pad Thai, red curry, green curry, panang curry, and the duck fried rice.

Our favorite Thai place in town. Hands down the best Pad Thai, and the Crab Rangoon seems freshly prepared and not pulled straight from the freezer. Highly recommend this family-run business!
