excellent Thai

We are all Thai food lovers and Tamarind did not disappoint. The Bento box was perfect as were the two orders of pad Thai. Service was good even though the restaurant was completely full at lunch.

As I have traveled around the globe in a variety of jobs, and spent several years in Thailand with my family, we are always looking for Thai restaurants that have that unique... More

What a treasure in an area full of chain restaurants with mediocre food and loud dining rooms. This serene little restaurant is a quiet oasis with excellent service and very good food. We have never been disappointed with any dish or drink that we have ordered. A favorite is the pineapple rice with shrimp. Ask for it a bit on... More

This is a nice little restaurant near the interstate. The staff is very nice, attentive, and accommodating. I have eaten there two or three times and will go back again.

The Pad Thai was delicious, and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and the size of the tuna in the roll. I am only sad that it... More

Best Thai food in Asheville area in my opinion. Waitstaff very friendly and accommodating. Ordered the green curry and requested mild seasoning as I had throat surgery and they were happy to do this. I also asked for steamed tofu. It was so tasty with just the right amount of spice for me to handle. Fresh basil and green and... More

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 mall.... More
