A great place to take your honey on date night. Friendly efficient servers and a nice selection of meat and vegetarian dishes.

“Reliably Excellent”
Reviewed February 12, 2011

We eat here frequently and have never been disappointed. The food sometimes a little more spicy, sometimes a little less, but always delightful.
They have increased their prices recently, but we always return for the quality.

“My Favourite Malaysian Restaurant”
Reviewed December 20, 2010

This is my favourite Malaysian restaurant in the Vancouver area. The food is authentic and delicious. Everyone we have taken to this restaurant loves the food. It has an extensive menu, and they are open to accommodating special diets. Although meat, chicken and fish are in most of the dishes, many items can be made vegetarian. The quality of the food means it can get crowded on weekends and reservations are advised. During the week there is usually no problem getting a table as a walk-in. A second location has opened in North Vancouver, but I have only been to the New Westminster location. Check out the menu at www.tamarindhill.ca

“Fantastic, authentic food”
Reviewed January 4, 2009

Tamarind Hill is one of the more sophisticated New Westminster restaurants so a good choice if you're going out for an occasion in the area. Nice Malaysian interior but it's not a problem showing up in Gortex and hiking boots. I took my parents there as they'd never had Malaysian before and they loved it.

It's quite a small so a good idea to make a reservation. You don't expect to have to do that in New West but I was told to book and was glad I did as it was crowded. That's no surprise because the food is excellent; they have a great selection and it's all very authentic.

It's slightly pricier that the other places in the area but it's worth it for the quality of the dishes. Good portion sizes, fantastic flavours and a varied menu to chose from with all the Malaysian classics.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area or you can get the skytrain to New Westminster station then use your ticket to hop on a bus up the hill to 6th and 6th - or walk and work up an appetite! The entrance is around the side on 7th street and I think there might be one or two parking spaces.

Appetizers $5, laksas $7-8, large meat dishes $12, vegetables $10.
