Review of Thara Thai Restaurant

912 1/2 W Bloomington Rd, Champaign, IL 61821

Overall Rating


We stopped in last night after a wedding — I was starving and was so thankful the takeout was ready very quickly! It’s currently takeout only but they boxed everything up very nicely while piping hot, and stayed very hot even after we got back to our hotel.

I got the red curry (comes with rice) at the medium spice level. It definitely had a kick but was very delicious, and I didn’t have any trouble eating it. (However, if you’re not a spice lover, definitely go mild.) Red curry is one of my favorite dishes, I might even call it comfort food!

The woman who took our order was very friendly and cheerful — she helped me with the gluten free options and was overall just very pleasant to interact with. When I asked about a GF menu she came over to help me look over their regular menu and to let me know which things they could not make gluten free. (It’s always to have a majority of the menu available!)

I felt safe ordering from here and did not get sick after eating.
