“A real find: good food, quick service, great value”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

This unassuming place has no fancy decor or pretensions, but the food is delicious and surprisingly cheap. Eat there inside or outside at wooden tables on the fenced patio or order food to take out. We like the ginger beef or walnut shrimp, but everything is good and portions are quite large.

“Great lunch deal”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

I go to Tam's every few months when I'm visiting the area and am in the mood for a good and affordable Chinese lunch. They have the best deal in town. Tasty soup, meat of choice, rice and a fried wonton for under 10 dollars. Plus I love their little outdoor deck to enjoy the sun and my food.
