Although a bit expensive, Tamarai seems to do good quality Thai and Vietnamese food. The restaurant itself is really nice, beautifully set up and surrounded by lush greenery. Just beware of sitting too close to the bushes in the evening, as there could be a lot of mosquitoes.

Came for a business dinner, we both ordered curry and it was a bit bland. Service was good and the wine was cold but would say there are better options in Kampala. Also the music was a bit ridiculous on the loud/club like side for a monday night.

The service is fast and quality, and the food is prepared well. A nice place to stop if you are in this section of Kampala.

I love Tamarai food. I have had a chance to meet the chef and he is a very good man. I have eaten here a few times and have always loved their food. My wife enjoyed our dinner there a few months ago. (I plan to take her back).

Before settling for Tamarai, I kept looking for a restaurant in Kampala that I could call my second home. My search led me to this exceptional restaurant. The set up is uniquely homely while the service is nearly impeccable. The food is simply amazing. Tamarai is definitely not just a restaurant, it is an experience...
