The food served is ok, sometimes not really very Thai, but fairly well made. There is a limited amount of options, but that is sometimes just a good thing. There is a range of proteins to choose from (tofu, beef, shrimp etc.). Not a restaurant to go to for a special occasion, but an ok venue for lunch with friends... More

We passed the restaurant for a few times already and were looking for a place to eat at a reasonable price. Eating out in Helsinki is quite expensive and we figured that a Thai restaurant would be a good choice. We shared a few dishes with 4 persons since we were not that hungry. Overall the quality was good. The... More

There are a few of these Tamarin places in the Helsinki metropolitan area, but I have not managed to visit one until today. Upon recommendation of my wife, who had tried a beetroot chicken curry with chantarelles on a bed of rice before, and liked it very much. So we came here, albeit a different location, to taste just that... More

A huge disappointment. Ordered food to take-away while rest of the group stayed for a sit in dinner. Made sure at least twice that they can make the food before 6pm when I had to run for a bus. When the clock was 6pm, they stated that it will take 15 more minutes. I couldn't wait any longer as I... More

My husband got the red chicken curry and it was excellent; it comes with a heaping amount of white rice. €15. There is a delicious-sounding beetroot curry on the menu. There is a €11 lunch deal.

Pretty comfortable Thai restaurant along the promenade. Pretty good menu and nice staff. Space for larger groups.

The restaurant next to Kamppi has much friendlier staff, but the one in Forum shopping centre is awful from this point of view. Last time we waited 15 minutes and nobody came to give us the menus. In the meantime, other customers who came later were served. We were sitting in the middle of the room, and they DID see... More

Several times have I thought that newer will my shadow darken the threshold of Tamarin on Iso Roobertin katu due to the appalling behaviour of the waitresses. As a customer you get the feeling that you have somehow offended them by entering their domain and to add insult to injury you are requesting them to bring you food. I do... More

The service was not so great, friendly though, but not too helpful. Good spicy salad, sparse and tough duck. Pick something else from the menu.
