    Great service. The team were bubbly and friendly. The food was amazing! Highly recommend the red curry - the best I’ve ever had. The sticky rice pudding for dessert was also so delicious

    Amazing Thai food, excellent service and a great wine list to accompany the meal. Second time we have dined at Spicers Tamarind and on both occasions have been very impressed. Our favourite is the barramundi, however all dishes are well balanced with hints of chilli and spices. Must mention the number of quality Rieslings to choose from which perfectly match the delicious Thai cuisine.

    Did get a bit cold during the dinner service. Maybe a heater would be nice to add to the atmosphere.
