I just finished eating lunch there and I have to say it's one of the best meals I have had in a long time. As a foreword, I wholly disagree with Dave's review. Upon coming in, I was greeted by Long, our server, and he was incredibly helpful. He wasn't the least bit aggressive. Instead, he made helpful suggestions, inquiring... More

Maybe it's a cultural thing, but I do not appreciate getting the "hard sell" when I go in to eat a relaxing meal. I understand the place makes more money if you buy the more expensive plates, but I can read the menu and do not need to be persuaded to add more items or try dishes I do not... More

Dear Dave H, Thank you for visiting our establishment and taking the time to share your opinion, as we appreciate all feedback from our valued guests. It gives us an opportunity to take 1 step back to re-evaluate in order to take 2 steps forward. Firstly, I'd like to apologize for coming across as "aggressive," it was the farthest thing... More

From the moment we entered the restaurant, we were blown away. The atmosphere is awesome, from the lighting to the table settings. We were greeted immediately upon entering by our waitress, Laura, who promptly inquired as to whether this was our first visit (which it was). She started us off with drinks, then explained the appetizer menu and made suggestions... More

The space is beautiful and can probably handle a large party if you give the restaurant sufficient notice. Went with a group of colleagues and we each ordered appetizer, entree, and dessert. The appetizers are wonderful. I loved the Imperial rolls which are a bit more complex than the regular spring rolls. Wrap each bite in a bit of lettuce... More

Travelling to London ON, we needed to find a place for dinner. Went to TripAdvisor and found Tamarine. Located downtown and close to our hotel and work destination, we decided to see what all the fuss was about. When I am trying a new restaurant, or a new cuisine, asking for help from your server tends to pay off. For... More

We tried Tamarine because of it's tripadvisor rating and we weren't disappointed. The summer rolls were as fresh and tasty as I hoped and I tried the pineapple chicken for my entree. I only wish I had room to try a dessert. We found the service was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. We will definitely be back!!

This is it. The one that I recommend to everyone who asks. "Tamarine is an off-shoot of Quynh Nhi, the long-standing Vietnamese restaurant on Wharncliffe, and is located across the street from Budweiser Gardens, next to Kingsmills. So it’s always facscinating to me how many people haven’t heard of it. I have told so many people about this restaurant, I... More

Food was fresh, flavourful without being overpoweringly spicy! I enjoyed every bite I put in my mouth. Long was attentive and helpful without hovering over you, altogether an enjoyable dining experience, can't wait for my next visit!
