Went out for dinner at Tamarai's a few weeks ago and was truly blown away. Authentic thai food alongside other Asian dishes in a fantastic environment. If you're in Kampala and crave a taste of Asia, make sure to stop by Tamarai!

Tamarai has a lovely atmosphere, sitting outdoors under thatch roof in candlelight. I love the fresh fruit juices, Vietnamese spring rolls, and coconut soups. Altogether a great way to spend an evening.

Had a quiet Sunday evening at Tamarai, awesome Tom yum soup and very tasty chicken Rendaang. James my waiter was very polite and attentive, even tried to teach me some Luganda. I'll keep trying.

It really depends on how hungry you are. If you just share rice and a curry dish the cost is very inexpensive. The vegetable fried rice is 14,000 and the vegetarian curry is 22,000. So if you are not real hungry you can... More
