To celebrate our 52nd wedding anniversary, we decided to return to Tarana in Lingfield to sample more of their scrumptious fayre!
We last visited there well over a year ago when returning home from a firework display at Lingfield Park Racecourse. The setting and standard of food then was excellent. Nothing has changed in that time. In fact our guests with us thought it had actually improved even more.
The surroundings within are simply stunning. When sitting in the restaurant, you could be in London or any other big city. The fittings , layout and design are simply exquisite.
We booked a table beforehand and as we approached the main entrance, there was someone there opening the door and giving us a warm welcome.
With all its subtle lighting and good use of mirrors and glass it
gives the interior a feeling of spaciousness.We had the choice of where we wanted to sit.
There was ample staff about and very quickly and seamlessly we had ordered pre dinner drinks.
Choosing from the menu caused a slight problem, because there were so many wonderful dishes to chose from!
We opted for a mixed starter and a vegetarian starter called Phak Tord. Both were excellent choices!
We then chose a selection of meat dishes for our main course together with two different types of rice( Khao Suay and Khao Gratis).Most delicate flavours. The size of the dishes as such that everyone had more than enough to satisfy their appetite. The plates used for the main meal were hot!
On this occasion we chose a red wine produced in Cambodia/Thailand (can't remember which now!) called Monsoon Red. It was very light, smooth and complimented the meal. We enjoyed it so much we went back for a couple of individual glasses to finish up the meal!
The place itself is spotless as were the toilets. The staff were very attentive and extremely friendly and appeared like magic whenever we needed something.
Value for money? Certainly.
It was good to see that the standards were still extremely high and we will be back for another visit.
