Really good spices!

Tamarind had done if the best Thai food that I have eaten. The Phad Thai noodles have great flavor. Slightly expensive for lunch, but worth it!

What a great little restaurant in a nondescript strip mall! Once inside, the atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable -- almost elegant. The food lived up to all of the great reviews here. The satay chicken appetizer was tender, moist and delicious. The salmon appeared in a bowl with a tasty sauce on a bed of vegetables and was very good.... More

My husband, 16 month old son, and I absolutely adore this lovely place! From sushi, to satay, amazing curries, delicious thai dishes, reasonably priced. We order at least once a week, pick up is just as delicious and a better option for us with our lil one sometimes. The staff are SUPER friendly and welcoming. The inside is a comfortable... More

I ad the Penang Curry and it was the best Thai food I have ever had. My friends all ordered different entrees and they all said it was fantastic. This was the first time I had been to Tamarind but it definitely will not be my last.

We went to Tamarind based on reading the reviews. We had a spicy tuna roll as an appetizer... four pieces each for a very reasonable price. Our meals were excellent and the service was very good. If you enjoy Thai food, I highly recommend this place. You won't be disappointed.

Great service and quality of food! We live nearby and often enjoy Tamarind. We like the fact that each dish is made for you individually, and you can request the amount of spiciness that you prefer (ie. mild, moderate, spicy).

Great place, nice staff, good food. I have been to Tamarind many times, but on my first visit I was struck by how friendly the staff were. The menu is large with all of the usual things I expect to find in a Thai restaurant. My favorite was the special, soft shell crabs in green curry! Excellent!

Well, after reading all of the reviews for this restaurant, I had to try it. My wife and I decided to make the trek from Hendersonville to Arden to see if this place did live up to the hype. I love Thai, especially Pad Thai, and am always in search for great pad thai.... and if they have good sushi,... More

Great Thai food.. and very authentic. We eat here once a month at least. I had friends visiting from Chicago where the food is the best in the US ( my own opinion..) and they were impressed with this restaurant. Truly good food.
