I've been to every restaurant near Tamarine that is considered high end dining so very surprised I haven't walked into Tamarine before tonight. It was recommended by a friend who had heard good things but had never been in. I thought it would be a great spot to try Vietamese food for the first time. It has a beautiful modern dining area and is quite impressive when you walk in with colorful dim lighting, and music in background that gave a vibe similar to a restaurant I may find in Toronto. We were given a table immediately upon entry by friendly wait staff. The menu had lots of variety of beef, chicken, fish and veg options. Every item from the mixed appetizer plate, to entrées to dessert were beautifully presented, fresh, appetizing, hot and delicious. Be prepared for a little spice in the pad Thai and in the basal beef! I loved it as it wasn't overpowering. Our server gave great suggestions on how to eat/mix food to capture the authentic flavor. Definitely, going to be back and I highly recommend it for: relaxed cozy yet modern atmosphere, efficient, pleasant helpful service, delicious flavors in every course and great value for fresh, tasty, meals. I can't count the number of times I felt it was a 'party in my mouth' :)

We were very impressed when the owner opened up early for us during the World Figure Skating Championships. It was often challenging to find a restaurant open for dinner during breaks in the event schedule and the owner at Tamarine was fabulous! The service was very personal and friendly. Staff suggestions were helpful and informative. Our dinners really satisfied our desire for a taste of Vietnamese cuisine. The Pad Viet and Curry Chicken were delicious! Definitely worth a visit.

Dear Jay,

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us!

Since our grand opening two years ago, we have come to love being in the heart of downtown London; we are able to welcome both local clientele and those that are visiting our beautiful city and experiencing all that it has to offer. I would agree that the restaurant industry - I would venture to say the majority of industries - experience ebb and flow with their customers. It would certainly be ideal to be busy all day, every day, but we play the cards that we are dealt. We do appreciate your business, and we hope you return the next time you are in London.

Best regards,
Long Phan

The higher-end version of Quynh Nhi - really nice people, ambiance and food. I've been going to Quynh Nhi for years so this was a natural extension. The food has been described as "authentic" - tasty and classy.
