We arrived 7.20pm for our table booked for 7.30pm. We had our starters, drinks, then placed our main course order. 10.15pm and our main course still had not arrived. At no point did anyone apologise for the wait. Appalling.

Good service, little slow, but food fresh and tasty. Needed a little help with Menu and choices but probably should have asked but will do next time , as will return to try other things.

We visited Tara Thai when staying overnight in Southend. A great find. We couldn't fault the food which was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was very good too and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. Highly recommended.

We ordered Chicken Satay and Thai Fishcakes "to start" then Sweet and Sour Pork and Beef in Oyster Sauce. All extremely tasty and beautifully presented... More
