Thara Thai, Champaign: “Definitely Thara Thai. They will customize anything and the food is always good. I feel like people don’t know about it because it’s out on Bloomington Road, but I think it’s the best Thai food in town!” “Thara Thai is a best kept secret in town!” “Their pineapple rice and coconut dessert are amazing!” “Definitely Thara Thai! So incredibly good. Be prepared for a wait, not usually for a table, but the food takes a while to come out. So worth the wait, though. Never had a bad experience or left less than over the moon for the food.” “Pad Thai is amazing, and the mango sticky rice? Amazing!” Editor’s Note: See why we think Thara Thai is a good place to go for date night.
