I went here for lunch with a colleague; it was my first visit. The restaurant is not fancy. The seating and decor are very basic, but comfortable. The food was quite good. The staff were very polite and responsive.

There have been times when we'd give Tamarind a 5. But not always. Of the three meals we ordered 112/12/15, two were very mediocre. The "stir fry" was more like "steamed and put together." Chicken was tough. Beef was pasty white and not seasoned through.

A great, reasonably-priced, friendly place to eat. My husband and I ate lunch there for my birthday - the portions were perfectly-sized, the salad with warm peanut dressing (which comes with all lunch entrees) was delicious, and the dishes were spicy without being overwhelming. Highly...More
