Tara Thai (NW)

1310 NW 23rd Ave..
Portland, OR 97210
503-222-7840websitePrice: Moderately Expensive
Area: Downtown

Tara is located in an old Victorian house (which characterizes this part of Portland), which boasts a great outdoor deck that attracts a crowd when the weather cooperates. Inside it's pretty basic with Asian accents, blue walls and an overall casual feel. This family owned eatery offers both Thai and Laotian cuisine.

In terms of selections for both lunch and dinner, count on stir frys, curries, sautés, noodle and rice dishes all with choice of chicken, pork, shrimp, beef, tofu, or tempeh. Other notable dishes include ginger marinated chicken with veggies; steamed spinach topped with protein of choice; and rice noodles with choice of meat with spinach, basil and ground peanuts in a spicy chicken broth. One special that may appeal is the grilled Mahi Mahi salad with fresh mango, spinach, fried shallots, kaffir lime leaves, cilantro, ground peanuts and coconut flakes. Veggie lovers can order more steamed green stuff!

Open M-F for lunch beginning at 11a and Saturday & Sunday at noon.  Dinner nightly.
