Tara Thai, located at 9811 Washingtonian Blvd L9 in Gaithersburg’s Rio Lakefront, has been listed as temporarily closed on Google for a few months now. The Tara Thai website still states “We are closed due to the plumbing problem”, but today we received confirmation from Rio that the restaurant has permanently closed.
Tara Thai has additional Montgomery County locations at Bethesda’s Montgomery Mall and in Rockville’s Montrose Crossing, and other locations in neighboring counties. The Rio restaurant has been open for over 20 years. The location, which has a patio overlooking the lake and offers one of the few places in Montgomery County you can “eat on the water”, is already very close to being leased. We will have an update as soon as we are able to get confirmation on the restaurant replacing tara Thai.
