It just so happened that we ate in the restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday and then had a take-away from here within a fortnight and both times thoroughly enjoyed our meals (as always!). We always have the chef's selection for starter and we always love it - one of these days I really must try something else :). It... More

This was a really lovely hidden gem. I visited with my partner and my in laws and every meal was spectacular. We usually go for a Chinese or Indian takeaway but decided on something a little different and we were not let down. The staff were polite and accommodating and the food really was something special. We all ordered something... More

I was surprised to hear that a Thai restaurant had opened in the Lyndale Hotel. My family had been previously and raved about it. I was not disappointed! I had Tom Kha soup to start and it was delicious. The spicy chicken main I had was outstanding. I could have eaten it again! Everyone present, including three children under 5,... More

Can't believe never knew this restaurant existed. Was a bit wary on entering, old fashioned hotel foyer and bar. Sat in restaurant decor very old fashioned with a little Thai flair. Waiter and bar lady very very polite. Food lovely my hubby likes spicy I like very mild and that was catered for and both very tasty. I had scallops... More

Came here for the first time as its only up the road and I'd never been before. Had king prawns in pastry to start which were lovely dipped in sweet chilli sauce. I then went for a Thai red curry with beef and asked the man if he could make it slightly hotter than normal which he said was no... More

The decor of the restaurant is somewhat anodine. However the food is very good. Huge choice on the menu. Most choices have a vegetarian option, which makes a change. Not expensive, and always tasty food.

Although we were staying in Llandudno we found The Tamarind Thai Restaurant at the Lyndale Hotel Colwyn Bay listed by the Gourmet club. The hotel seemed very nice and comfortable and we are sure could be recommended for a stay. However the reason for our visit was the Thai food, we were not disappointed, the dishes were well presented and... More

Entering through the foyer of the distinctly lack lustre hotel, the ambiance enhanced by the buckets collecting the water coming through the ceiling, we were shown to the dining room which was half in darkness. Seated at a table too small for us to eat off sitting opposite each other (really) we were a little apprehensive about the food, but... More

We visited on Wednesday evening as my daughter had had her last exam, and had a very pleasant surprise at the service and food we received. The waitress we had was very polite and lovely, and the food was all up to a very good standard. Very impressed, will return.

One of Toptable���s favourite hidden gems, Colwyn Bay offers a surprise in the shape of The Tamarind Thai Restaurant. Reliably fantastic food and always excellent service have ensured that The Tamarind is a local favourite and always, always busy. The cosy dining room, complete with Oriental wood carvings and always fresh flowers, is low key and subtle, perfect for those nights out with friends and family whether you���re local to the area or enjoying a holiday in this historic area of North Wales. Chef Noo, renowned for the authenticity of his recipes, offers a wide ranging menu straight from the Bangkok streets. Anyone who has been lucky enough to visit Thailand will be immediately transported back to those balmy South East Asian evenings with one bite of the wonderful food here.
