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. Semi-annual exhibits will close with a cocktail event to auction the art. Proceeds will be donated to La Maison Chance, an orphanage in Saigon, Vietnam.

Excellent restaurant where the fusion food is prepared very professionally and the service is excellent. We had been many times to this restaurant and we were always very satisfied at each time. All courses are good and they have a very good wine list.

“Lovely birthday dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Would definitely go again, nice atmosphere and great food. Side dishes and vegetables are huge so don't order too much. Nice cocktails and mock tails.

“Good Food and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

I stopped here to meet up with an old university friend for a few drinks and some light food at the bar. The bar man was great, the food was good, and we had a great night catching up over some food and drinks.

I will go again,

“Great food & ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We started with some appetizers: we shared the Tamarine taste platter and the tuna tartar. Tuna was OK and from the platter the tea leaves beef rolls stood out.

I had the Hoisin lamb chops and coconut tapioca for desert. My son had the Massaman short rib curry and the banana beignet.

Great ambience and excellent service.

“Good food and ambience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

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.
