We have been going to Banana Leaf regularly for malay food but recently decided to stay closer to home at Tamarind Hill on Lonsdale. First thing, they need to redesign their entrance so cold air doesnt blow through the whole restaurant whenever the front door opens. Menu is quite standard malay fare and the dishes we choose were all well... More

When we first started coming here 4 years ago it was good. I used to particularly enjoy the Beef Rendang. Great taste, excellent sauce and high quality beef. Yesterday the experience wasn't so good. Terrible oily sauce and stringy, very fatty beef. Didn't sleep well at all as a result. Shame that the consistency isn't there. Perhaps the regular cook... More

This little restaurant is a gem! I went with two friends tonight, and we walked away with full, satisfied bellies and very little damage to the wallet. We started with roti, a dish with prawns and vegetables in a coconut curry cream sauce served with rice, another dish of eggplant, okra and green beans in a black bean sauce, chicken... More

Very busy place, quite cozy. Lots on the menu, and excellent value for lunch! Have eaten here a few times, always yummy, with efficient service. My favorite is the Singapore Laksa, a MASSIVE bowl of spicy coconut broth, rice noodles, chicken, shrimp, fish cake, etc which is a commitment to eat but is so very yummy with subtle flavours; plenty...

This place is consistently good, both for dine-In and takeout. I've eaten here many times and have never tried anything that wasn't delicious, especially the nasi goreng, rendeng beef and lakhsa. Friendly people, quick service. Highly recommend.

This is a small room which appears to be constantly busy. The one server managed to multi-task expertly and food was served quickly and piping hot. We shared spring rolls (to die for!) and satay before our individual entrees. Next time I think I'll suggest sharing because everything looked so good, and the server was happy to split the shared...

Best Singapore laksa in town ( better than banana leaf and tropika)...nice ambiance and great prices. A bit hard to find parking during key times... Best to go at night for dinner.

This was our first time at Tamarind Hill and we were pleasantly surprised. The Singapore laksa was amazing, chicken satays were delicious and they have some great drinks too. Free parking in the back. Great ambiance and decor and fantastic service. We will definitely be going back in the future

Walking in for lunch, the atmosphere is fine. The staff are cordial and friendly. It started to get busy during the lunch hour. The menu is full of Malaysian cuisine and that becomes the hard part...what to order. I have not had a lot of Malaysian cuisine and found that it is a blend of different cultures I have experienced.... More

Nice quiet spot, pleasant space and good service. Singapore Laksa is worth a visit! Closes quite early, the only down side .
