Loved that we found tasty thai at a non-crowded restaurant! Tamarind seems to be known for its quick fried fish, and the snapper was flavorful and moist with its crisp skin. Also enjoyed the depth of flavor in the pad thai.

The food here is always amazingly good. You will NEVER be disappointed. The prices are a little high, but you get what you pay for! We like to order several dishes and eat them family style. Try the BRAZILIAN rice!!! :-)

Inviting. Polite. Great food, Decor is more spartan but food VG. Would revisit there; large groups are tricky but they are accomodative despite place being small.
