What a gem of a place. Lovely staff, absolutely delicious food at a great price and a wonderful ambience. This is the best Thai food I have had outside of Thailand. What more could you ask for!

A little cafe with an upstairs that serves great food at good prices. The service and food are authentic Thai. The lunch offers a limited menu but at a great price and the place is always busy so consider booking to ensure you get a seat. The place has waitress service but has a cafe style - the effort goes... More

It has a basic café setting, but the food is excellent! Friendly service and just a super place to eat; that the house was full says it all!!. I highly recommend the Tamarind Thai Café and I will certainly return.

Totally amazing food! Don't expect 5* surroundings- that is not what this is about- the food is just delicious! I would happily eat there every week! The broccoli and garlic is to die for!
