Location and contact

Tara Thai & Sushi is the only place on St. Simons Island to offer both authentic Thai food and quality & fresh sushi made to order. You can choose traditional table seating, outdoor or indoor, or sit at the sushi bar to watch your food being made right before your eyes. We also serve Saké, beers, wines and mixed drinks at the bar. The restaurant is newly redecorated and under a new ownership who runs many Thai & sushi restaurants and has over a decade of experience in the business. Our sushi and Thai chefs also have years of experience and are carefully hand-picked. This is a fun and cozy place for a small or large group and family to enjoy lunch or dinner or hold a party. We also provide good-portion and affordable-price lunch special dishes for your quick lunch. Come try our delicious food and let us know what you think! Tara Thai & Sushi have been opened since Sept 2, 2015, in St Simons Island, GA. We are not Tup Tim Thai. The restaurant is newly renovated & is under new ownership! The restaurant is used to be called Tup Tim Thai. So, please disregard previous comments prior to September 2, 2015. Thank you!

Yes! Amazing! So good we ended up taking away a second order. Super friendly staff too!! We had sushi, sashimi, warm saki. And I even cut up fresh oranges for the kids. Really great experience and atmosphere.

I didn't try any sushi, but thoroughly enjoyed the drunken noodles. Despite being a bit skimpy with the fresh basil, which is a trademark of this dish, it was well prepared and seasoned. I will likely return.

We always stop here when in town. They have fresh sushi and great service! The broken heart, spicy California roll and shrimp pad Thai are fabulous.

Very disappointed with food and service We ate nothing on our plates and no one inquired if there was a problem. Service was slow and no one cared. Don’t waste your time or money stopping here.
