Very Yummy!

We both had Shrimp Pad Thai. The spice was perfect for us at medium. It could use a bit more sauce but that's just me. They would probably provide more next time if I ask. We added some peanut sauce to ours to give it a bit more moisture. Perfect portion size. Very nice little restaurant in a strip... read more

Excellent food and service. We had an early dinner before heading to the Agricultural Center for a horse show. I had a chicken peanut curry and my husband had a pork Thai dish. I preferred his over mine...but both excellent! We had wine by the glass with a good selection. Service was fast...fortunately it was a night we wanted it... More

DH and I stopped here before a long car ride home. Overall, we were very pleased with our meal. We shared a Tom Yum that was good, but not the best I've had. DH ordered a stir fry dish that he thought was good, but not great. I ordered a dish of spicy noodles that were delicious. The flavors really... More

Some friends had recommended Tamarind Thai in Arden, near the Asheville Regional Airport, so we decided to try it. After we got there, we realized we already had eaten here some years ago, but for some reason never went back. Our reaction to Tamarind Thai this time was that it is a pleasant little restaurant in a strip mall, with... More

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).
