I love Tamarind, they are always amazing. We tried today’s special, that was Lamb shoulder dish, and it was superb!! Also, I highly recommend Teeth fish? Meal, it come with ponzu pearl, it was way better than I was expected. I forgot my waitress ‘s name , but she was so friendly and helpful. And she knows wines and food very well. Highly recommend to try Tamarind if you are in Cairns.

We are frequent visitors to Tamarind and have never been disappointed. Last night was a clear 10 out of 10 experience in all respects, food, drinks and service. It is not often that you are offered the unusual both in term of ingredient and the way it is cooked. Slow Cooked Organic Hens Egg and the Slipper Lobster are just but 2 examples of their imaginative and unusual offering. Don't be afraid to ask the helpful staff to tell you more about the unusual you cannot fathom! They make your food experience a simple delight with their knowledge.

This occassion was a family dinner. We were given a private area to enjoy as we were engaged with each other from one end of the table to the other and did not disturb other diners. Very very comfortable for all 8 of us.

Eye fillet , one of the best! I guess someone has to get the last glass when buying red wine by the glass. However at $29 per glass and getting not quite a glass and topping up the glass with from another bottle was not to expectations . Desserts rate 6-7. Overall excellent restaurant .
