“Lunch at Tam Tam: a Midday Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2007

I just had lunch at TamTam and haven't had such a good time and great food since my last vacation. Lunch at Tam Tam's felt like a fabulous and relaxing midday vacation! The ka-chai is the tastiest chai ever, with plenty of spices for the tea. I can't decide what jumps out at me most--the owner's unparalleled hospitality, the tastiness of the food, or the truly remarkable value. GO--and take your friends. It's a comfortable and wonderful place, even if the neighborhood may not be the first to come to your mind when looking for a new restaurant. You'll be glad you went!
