This place is round the corner from my house and I've driven past several times so thought we'd give it a go. Had read some reviews which were helpful. First of all this is not your typical Thai restaurant. It's situated inside a little local hotel and the restaurant doubles as the breakfast room. Yes it looks a little odd... More

We have lived in Colwyn Bay a long time and have only just found this little gem of a restaurant. We went on the recommendation of our son and daughter in law and were not disappointed. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly. The decor is a little dated but the food more than makes up... More

Been here quite a few times and never had a bad meal. Really good tasty food and pretty reasonable as well. My only minor gripe is that if it isn't busy then it lacks a bit in atmosphere. Easy answer to that though -- take a group and make your own atmosphere!!

We went to the Tamarind on the recommendation of a friend, the venue needs updating but what a find. The food was brilliant, four of us eat great food and at great value. Will definitely eat there again and recommend it to others. Thanks

We hadn't been here for quite a while. Always enjoyed it beforehand and were interested to see what it was like with the new chef. Excellent meal - really enjoyed it again :). As has been mentioned before - don't go here for the atmosphere but do go for excellent Thai food.

We had a poor experience in respect of the Hotel so were not sure what to expect from the Tamerind but we had had a long drive and didn't know the area so decided it was worth a try. We can only say fantastice. The food was amazing and the staff helpful and attentive. Like the other reviews, don't be... More
