Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback. Whilst I enjoyed the food immensely at Tamarind some of the finer points of service were missed, which for the expense of the meal and calibre of the restaurant I was disappointed. The waiter whilst friendly, did not offer a taste of the wine that I purchased, merely presented and poured the bottle. I understand that wines under stelvin are unlikely to have fault, nonetheless it is an element of the wine pouring process that is essential - faults can still be present. Secondly, when the food was delivered, the food runner/waiter was unaware of who ordered what and placed the food down incorrectly - on a table of two. I hope that this feedback is constructive and can be used to provide additional training to your team.

Peter our waiter was fantastic and pointed us in the right direction with our selection with the menu. we also enjoyed the space around the tables as we could have a conversation without having to talk over the tables around us our worry about being heard.

I travel around Australia weekly and have the previlege to dine at some of the best restaurants across Australia. Tamarind, is the only place I dine in Cairns. Consistently good food, great wine selection and friendly staff with a myriad of backgrounds. The degustation with wines is a must do. If you are a food or wine lover, this is a must do.Enjoy.

Previous visits have been better. Music was more like a trendy bar than a fine dining restaurant. Waiter was friendly enough but his attentiveness dropped away as the night progressed, maybe due to understaffing? Also, food is very good but there is repetition on the menu (e.g if you get the pork croquette for entree and then the pork belly main, you got another croquette!) and as a local needs to be changed more often.

Amazingly good. Our first time at Tamarind but most definitely not our last. The tasting menu would stand well against any 5* restaurant in the country. My only criticism was that we were not advised, when booking, there was a surcharge due to it being a public holiday. However this did not detract from our experience.

Both my wife and I had the degustation. I had the accompanying wines but my wife didnt. The wines were paired very well. I need to be up front that im measuring against the likes of Tetsuyas or Aria Sydney, but we both thought the degustation flavours were hit and miss. Some courses were very nice, and some we thought mediocre. My wife swapped a course of the degustation with a zucchini flower and said it was exceptional. We will go again, as the service and atmosphere was very nice, but we will stick with the signature dishes.

Beautiful relaxing music during weekend breakfast. Staff are very well chosen and pay particular attention to detail. It would be nice to see the chef make a personal appearance, particularly during degustation dining. I will always come back to this restaurant when in Cairns. However, it would be nice if staff could invite some foreign tourists to not use mobile devices, eg noisy FaceTime conversations on speaker when one is trying to have a peaceful start to the day. I have been objective in this assessment compared with top restaurants throughout the world. Separately, please reinforce at least smart casual dress for patrons and consider a little foliage on tables. Many thanks and this place keeps getting better.
