Not entirely convinced new menu is impressive
The food was delicious, service exceptional, and atmosphere was nice. My feedback would be to ask the neighbouring bar to lower the base of the music because it can be heard from the restaurant: It’s not too intrusive though.
The service, food and wine were exceptional. We personally found the atmosphere and decor a little stiff- however this is a matter of personal taste rather than an issue with the establishment. We had a very enjoyable experience at Tamarind.
Very friendly environment and great service. Food is great and special. This is the place for a special dinner.
Had a lovely dinner the staff were extremely friendly and efficient
Always a great dining experience, especially for special occasions.
Always a great meal with excellent service
Our second visit to Tamarind on a week. First visit we had the tasting menu which was amazing. Second visit we chose a few items from the menu. The baby barramundi was delicious! But both visit I was really disappointed with the desserts. The cassava cake was bland and dry and the rhubarb panna cotta was hard and tasteless. But overall the food was amazing!
We chose a Taste Of Tamarind from the menu & thoroughly enjoyed our respective courses. However, when asked by a waitstaff member, as she cleared the empty plates from our table, following service of our Seared Eye-Fillet dish as to how our meals were, our feedback was that our meals could have been hotter. Now, we only gave that feedback to staff-members to pass onto the Chef so that the problem could be rectified. To be honest, our beautiful Spiced Tiger Prawn Bisque had not been hot enough either which was such a disservice to the Chef given that BOTH meals were beautifully prepared for us. Obviously, the problem of getting the dishes to the tables in a more timely manner needed to be addressed when it had happened twice on one table, in one evening. All handled beautifully by staff-members & we would definitely return to this wonderful local restaurant in the future. In fact, I definitely plan to have THAT Seared Eye Fillet dish as a main course in the not-too-distant future .... the flavours were totally awesome & left you wanting more! Thank you, Tamarind for a lovely evening & very pleasant dining experience! And, I do hope that "little glitch" is able to be rectified!
Everything was perfect 5 stars
Great food excellent service
The food and drinks were first class in both quality, taste and presentation. We were made to feel special and valued as customers.
Fantastic evening in all respects
Beautiful food. Great service. Such a special place for Cairns
Fantastic food but also very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff. Superbly professional! Will be back!
Service was awfully slow. If you’re going to put ice buckets in the middle of the room, at least have the waiter swing by every now and again to top up glasses. Waiting 30mins for a drink and almost 30 minutes between courses was not really what I expected. Overall the food was lovely, the overall experience was not. For the price, my expectations were much higher.
High quality restaurant that always surprises.
It was an interesting experience
Fantastic experience, helpful staff, value for money, inspiring unique food
Exceptional dining experience, lovely atmosphere and great service, food was exemplary. A must when visiting Cairns.
Absolutely wonderful experience both food and service. The servings were good proportions and you will surely not go hungry. If you are with luxury deals or staying in-house, ensure you make a reservation way ahead as you may encounter a rather obnoxious Maître d'hôtel who was quite abrasive. Gurun and Cybill made it a wonderful and pleasant experience.
The only booking we could get was for 9 pm ( we tried booking from the Saturday for a Wednesday night). We requested to be notified if an earlier booking became available. At 8.57 we received a message to be there for an 8.30 sitting.
Excellent food Although short staffed, service was very good
Very good menu with variety. Good implementing wine list as well. A very nice evening
Always a pleasant dining experience. Love the barramundi - which I have on every visit😂. Great staff and service.
