Before the new owners this venue was the best Thai food in Ithaca. We've been her several times and each time the quantity, quality and service has varied from great to unacceptable/cheap.

We love Tamarind, and eat here quite frequently. The service is great, and the main waitress knows us by name, and even knows what we usually order as an appetizer--the crispy vegetable platter! The food is quite tasty, and the portion size is pretty large....More

There have been times when we'd give Tamarind a 5. But not always. Of the three meals we ordered 112/12/15, two were very mediocre. The "stir fry" was more like "steamed and put together." Chicken was tough. Beef was pasty white and not seasoned through.
