Description: Tamarine is a contemporary Vietnamese restaurant that features the light but flavor-intensive culinary delicacies of Vietnam. The restaurant offers a menu based on small plates, promoting the Vietnamese tradition of the 'shared' meal in which food is shared and enjoyed with those close. Tamarine's small plate entrees are enjoyed with the pairing of a variety of aromatic, flavor infused rice, designed to be mixed and matched to create a truly unique flavor experience. Along with culinary delicacies of Vietnam, the restaurant showcases the works of emerging artists from Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries.

Very interesting and varied menu. Great atmosphere. Gets pretty busy so book or turn up early. Good place to go with a "family menu" that can be shared by a small group.

We have eaten here at least 10 times and have never been disappointed. I am gluten intollerant and they are one of the few restaurants with a full gluten free menu. The lemongrass sea bass is awsome

We were disappointed with this restaurant. The airconditioning was full on and we almost froze until it was turned down.

Favorites like Tamarind prawns, Lemongrass sea bass, Shaking beef, and Hoisin sauce lambchops remain on the ever-changing menu of starters, salads/soups, entrees, vegetables, rice, and dessert. The finest quality ingredients wonderfully cooked and presented. When making reservations, ask for the room with curtains furthest from the front door for an extra quiet and romantic meal. Vibrant bar scene in the front room. On another occasion, I had arranged a prix fixe dinner for 15 people (required for large groups); I chose the $75/person option (most expensive of 3). It had all the favorites above, and it was divine.

Ordered the Flash fried prawns on crispy noodles with a house tamerind sauce. Wow! Also the Lemongrass Sea Bass with Mango and rice noodle salad. Another taste bud delight. Great service. I don't like the close seating so would make a reservation (which you really need anyway) for the front tables. And Pecan Caramel Bourbon sauce Bread pudding to top off the meal. Pass on sides as the portions are large. I would pass on the Spring Rolls as well. I've had better although the jalapeno peanut sauce was delicious!
