The setting was superb, we could choose between restaurant, deck, lawn, pond or fireside dining, nothing was too much trouble. Food was delectable, high end quality but not too rich and heavy. Flavors and textures sensational. Waitstaff so friendly and helpful but professional and well trained too. Thanks to all at The Tamarind for a wonderful dining experience.

Lovely setting and superb food, we had the degustation and every course was excellent. The combination of textures and flavours made this a special dinner.

The Tamarind did not disappoint. We chose the tasting menu and it was delicious and more than enough food! Left very satisfied. Beautiful dining pavilions and staff were friendly and attentive.

Fabulous meal. Slight delay with menus, but from there it was all very slick. The food sensational. Servings were super generous and we left very full indeed. Our waitress Christine was knowledgeable and knew the menu backwards. We will be back .

Beautiful location ,, cocktails were divine, food was good but not as good as expected. Most plates were tiny, quite flavorsome, but the duck was cold and tough and the dessert was poor.. did not meet expectations .. but would try once more, just to see if we were there on a bad night

The Tamarind has long been one of our favourite places to dine; sensational modern Thai cuisine, top quality wine and exceptional service in laid-back luxury keeps us coming back again and again.

Really disappointed in the experience. The food was no where near the past experiences we have had there. Not sure if a new chef but food was not the high class we expected and def not value for the pricey tag .

The gardens in the grounds of the restaurant are fabulous but the interior itself lacks warmth. There were no table clothes or even mats and the tables were a hard grey melamine like finish. The music was intrusive even though not loud and I felt inappropriate for the setting. The food was good. Service was overall good although drinks took too long to arrive. The bar service in general was too slow. After asking if we were ready for the bill it didn’t arrive and we had to go looking for it in the end.

This was my second meal at The Tamarind. It's a lovely setting with beautiful food. I would question whether pineapple is a good accompaniment to pandan pannacotta however. All up it was a beautiful meal which I enjoyed immensely.

The food was great, staff were attentive as Nd efficient we had a great time. Would have preferred our requested location of the first restaurant by the bar as more ambiance in there. Ambiance is a big part of the experience and the other dining area seems to lack what the first area has

Right from when we parked the car to the time we left there was nothing but sensational service. the greeting and attention from staff Michelle and Bree was excellant. The food was amazing as was the ambience of the room. Would highly recommend The Tamarind.

The restaurant is pet friendly the grounds beautiful staff efficient. Personally I go there often and wish more menu change but other than that great place to go on a Sunday complimented by jazz which creates a pleasant ambience.

The Tamarind as always has excellent food, very welcoming staff and a great ambience. No special request is too much for the chef. Thanks for the great afternoon.
