My husband and I had an amazing dinner last night at Tamarine. We were greeted at the door by the owner who started our night out on a welcoming note. Our friendly server Prim, helped us navigate the menu and made some wonderful suggestions. For our appetizer we had the platter with the tea leaf beef, meatballs, mango shrimp salad... More

The service was excellent. The owner came out and chatted with us which made it a more personal experience. The food was amazing. I have never tasted so many different flavours in my life!

About mid-afternoon of the 16th day of our Circle Lake Erie trip, we parked Pearl (my wife's vehicle, a pearl colored SUV) in the underground garage across the street from our hotel. We had already made six o’clock dinner reservations at Tamarine, currently #2 on TripAdvisor. It features cuisine of Vietnam and is located across the street. Although I spent... More

Went here with a few girlfiends of mine for dinner and was very impressed of the food quality and portion. Place was very clean and visually appealing on the inside. Great place to eat, I'd recommend this place to anyone who likes Thai food.

Went there for a staff lunch and were impressed with the menu variety. There was something for everyone's taste buds. As always, the portions were large and the service very friendly, informative and prompt. I have eaten there before and the Tamarine is definitely one of the best restaurants in London.

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

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
