The restaurant does not look as homey outside as it is inside. Beautifully decorated and quiet, on Friday evening there were just couple of other quests in addition to us. Food was great: authentic thai, tasty and delicious. Service was friendly and fast. Value for money!

A range of basic thai food for the lunch buffet: rice, sour and spicy chicken, vegetables in coconut sauce, some soup. Not bad, but very simple.

I went there on a Wednesday evening and arrived around 8pm. The restaurant was almost empty. I know that the restaurants in the area closes quite early, but when I checked online it was open until 10pm. Later I realized that this was not the fact. But this was the only disappointment I had. I was together with a friend... More

Tamarin Vantaa Tikkurila. Have a quite good selection at lunch buffet. Food is good but should be more spicy and more thai-like. Ok place

Eleven of us arrived for a family get together. The table was set and waiting for us. The servers were gracious, warm and professional. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. When they mark a dish as spicy, they mean it! If you like Thai food, this is your place in Vantaa.

The best thai restaurant in Tikkurila, Vantaa. If I eat in Tikkurila, the choice is always either Tamarin or nepalese restaurant Sagarmatha, the other good choise in the area. Spicy enough and quality food. A bit small restaurant and crowded during lunch hours. Reasonable price of 10€ for the lunch buffet. Don't matter how it looks outside.

We went there with friends to spend some time before Christmas. A few of us is vegetarian, one vegan and we all had a great meal! You just need to say to personnel if you don't want fish sauce and they'll leave it from the meal. The food was spicy enough and not too hot and the ingredients seemed to... More
