We used to frequent them often even the portions were extremely small. They have changed the recipe's for some of their items, added Japanese. I think they should stick with what they knew.

One of my favorite Thai restaurants for several years. Food is always fresh, service is good and great atmosphere. Spicy Basil with chicken is my personal favorite, although they have a great selection of dishes. Nice place for lunch or dinner.

Tamarind is consistently good. Their ingredients are always fresh. Their spices are perfectly blended and made to order. And their flavors are incredible. Lots of options too. Service is always great.

Good variety and food. Not stellar, but one of the better offerings in the region. Their lunch specials are very reasonably priced.

Located in the back corner of a strip mall, you would not think this was a great place for Thai Food. You would be wrong. Great Food in a special atmosphere. Well worth the search.

Had green curry and pad Thai. Chicken soup seemed prepackaged. Wish the green Thai curry had been hotter temperature. Can’t beat the value for lunch.

If you like Thai and Japanese cuisine, Tamarind Thai delivers consistently good food and good size portions, with the level of spice adjusted to taste. With a nice relaxed ambiance, friendly prompt service, and reasonable prices, they are our go-to restaurant near work, and great...More
