This is an incredible menu. A ton of diverse dishes and it is really hard to choose. If you love beef, get their 7 courses of beef to share with someone. Really delicious. I don't love their Pho, but everything else has been more than incredible. We took a party of 10 here this past summer from all over the... More

The food here was so good the first time, that I went back two days later. I had the best soup of my life: full of flavor with lemongrass sausage, rice, cilantro, green onion and a broth that was divine -- not overwhelmingly chicken or another dominant flavor. It was a generous portion and despite the fact that I was... More

Really Incredibly Diverse Menu - there were pages of dishes to select from with influences from Chinese and Indian food and spices. Very appropriate for all types of occasions. The outside seating looked beautiful even though it was in the middle of a parking lot! Hard to imagine but it was set off and well done. I ate inside where... More

Many varieties of Vietnamese entrees offered. Daily specials offer excellent value. Located off-street frontage in mini-mall. Highly recommended.

I don't know much about Vietnamese food but was assured this place was very legit. What I DO know is the food was delicious and so beautifully prepared and presented you almost hated to eat it! (Almost.) We had the Tamarind Tree rolls, the Green Mango Salad, and the Tamarind Tree Crepe. WONDERFUL.

Holy yummy Vietnamese food! We had a good variety of dishes to try. Chicken fried rice, Chicken Pho, egg rolls, and the tamarind rolls. All I can say is DELICIOUS!! You will not go wrong here if you enjoy authentic Vietnamese cuisine. We sat with Ling who was a very nice server!

No matter how often I go I always enjoy having a meal at Tamarind Tree. Now the the new Seattle trolley is running it's easier to get there without a car. The food is very good and considering the quality and quantity a great value. Highly recommend a visit.

Nice Ambience. Creative food. Excellent spring rolls. The Pha was too large for one person but tasty. Eggplant sate was a wonderful surprise

I love this restaurant! If you have never been before the restaurant is located in the back corner of a parking log. Often times there are dumpsters and garbage littering the parking lot. Do not over think it, just head into the restaurant. Upon entering the restaurant does not look that large but off to the left they have an... More
