Tamarind has great yellow curry, served in a soothing interior setting. It's a great place for a get-together with friend to catch up. The service is also on point.

Tamarind is a great little restaurant. They offer sit down menu as well as food to go. The restaurant has a small parking area, which is a plus in downtown Ithaca. Inside is small and cozy, yet they manage to make it feel organized and well put. The food is great, the portions are good for the price and the flavor is spot on. Regarding service, these guys really do it well. Your cup never goes below half without someone passing by to refill it.

I went with a couple of friends and I ordered the Pad See Ew, which admittedly is my gauge plate for any Thai restaurant. The flavor was great, not too greasy not too "noodley". I also had a Tom Kha (spice level 2) with shrimp and it was the best I've had so far. My wife had the Mongolian beef and the had the option of brown steamed rice. All in all, I love this place and the only thing I could complain about is that the place is tiny and it is normally full during peak dinner time. I recommend this palce.

Great tasting food, lots of veggies in the curry with just the right flavor. Your choice of spiceiness, attentive service, comfortable atmosphere. Also an excellent place for vegetarians or vegans, I look forward to going back!

Picked this restaurant based on reviews. Was a little concerned when we called to make reservation and person hesitated and suggested a later time. It is a relatively small place and when we arrived, only the tables in the room on the right were being used and there were still several empty tables. Tried to order curry dish with duck, but told they were all out of duck. They replaced with chicken but still charged the higher price. Curry flavor was good, but chicken was a bit tough - seemed like it was previously cooked and just added to the curry sauce. Spicy fried rice was good. Portions were fairly nice size. Overall, food was good.
