My family and i ordered the Basil Duck, Panang Salmon, and BBq Duck, all were excellent. My preference were to the last two dishes named, as the Basil chicken was fried. The service is exceptional... The best i have experienced in the 40 countries visited worldwide. Our waitor had superb manners, was courteous and polite... He spoke with formal english... More

Very nice atmosphere inside, clean and welcoming. The variety of Asiatic dishes, with a strong prevalence of Thai, has menu options to satisfy almost anyone. Prices were very reasonable with most entrees being less that twice the price of a fast food "meal deal". I was very impressed by the number of duck dishes on the menu. I don't think... More

Small, charming Thai restaurant with friendly staff and excellent food. Don't let the plain exterior fool you. Go on in and give it a try!

Ithaca, NY should really position itself as the destination for Southeast Asian cuisine given how many very good choices there are -- among those is Tamarind though it quaintly describes its fare as "Asiatic" cuisine. It is a definitely Southeast Asian in its cooking with small nods to Japan etc. I visited here after a gap of a couple of... More

Before the new owners this venue was the best Thai food in Ithaca. We've been her several times and each time the quantity, quality and service has varied from great to unacceptable/cheap.

My wife found this restaurant while we were passing through Binghamton last week. The meal that we had was delicious and very reasonably priced. I am gluten free, and was p[leased with the number of options that I had. The waitress couldn't have been nicer. All in all, it was a very positive experience eating at this restaurant. Even though... More

We love Tamarind, and eat here quite frequently. The service is great, and the main waitress knows us by name, and even knows what we usually order as an appetizer--the crispy vegetable platter! The food is quite tasty, and the portion size is pretty large. We almost always take food home with us. If you have a sweet tooth, I'd... More

the last time I ate in sate sauce was just a blob of peanut butter but my panang curry with duck was decent . I ordered 1 to go this past weekend & it had lots of pieces of bone chips in it ... overall a big disappointment . There are many better places for thai in Ithaca .

Doesn't look like much from the outside.. The food is really good. I highly recommend it.. You can have no spice to as much as they have.
