I had a ginger chicken dish that was so salty I debated not eating it. The Blu time I tasted ginger was when I ate a sliver of ginger. Very disappointed.

I didn't recognize this place as the same one I visited in 2016. Service was ok (not busy). What charmed me last time - well did not. ie. I could have judged the book by its cover this time. The food was NOT terrible but...the chicken curry dish was far too salty. Also, I have ordered chicken curry without rice in the past (in several other places) but it has always had enough in it to fill me up. eg. there were only a token 3-4 short pieces of green beans in it. When I mentioned the saltiness and "lean on the bean" disappointments to the attention of the server in a friendly manner, a defensive response followed, with a "yah" about the salt and the suggestion that I "could've ordered a vegetable dish" instead. An apology or at least a "we will certainly consider these things for the future" would have been appreciated...I feel sad giving such a negative review. Without this response, I would have been able to give it a 3/5. Head up: Their spice levels tend to be less spicy.More

This is hands down thee worst service and food I have ex perienced in three decades for this area. The worst. The people were rude uncivil and the food was absolutely disgusting - The peanut sauce was so salty you couldn’t taste the peanuts. The...cold rolls were rubbery and the co te ts was cut or prepared without any care. All contents of the rolls were too thick and lacked what cold rolls should contain - we have to push back on this service ! It’s time everyone calls bad restaurants out and their service - while gouging prices with no respect for a customer. We received more than 100 $ of food that was not nearly what items we had ordered. They argued despite being wrong and guilty. This is not decent, civil or Canadian. It’s time now more than ever to push back on these restaurants that are uncivil and criminal.More

I avoided this place for a few years, its not attractive on the outside and its connected to a gas station. On advice of others we finally gave it a try. WOW!!!!! Its super cute inside, very nicely decorated and clean. THE FOOD IS ABSOLUTELY...WONDERFUL!!!!! This is def our new fav restaurant! High quality ingredients, everything is just so tasty. We have eaten in several Thai restaurants over the years but we will never go anywhere else but here. I would drive an hour to get their food.More

We visited last week and it was our first time here (but probably not our last); we loved the food (The special stir fry was great); we also tried the lemongrass & mushroom soup bowl (very tasty) Service was fast and friendly (we dined-in, but...socially distanced) The place was clean & tidy; the people were friendly & helpful. It was a great experience.More

We have ordered takeout several times, and find the website menu is easy to use, and the food is DELICIOUS. We heartily recommend Thai Tamarind.

We ordered a mixed vegetable plate, beef green curry, chicken pad Thai, and a fish dish with rice. All were great tasting initially but all were WAY TOO SALTY. It became difficult to eat because of the salt content. I was disappointed because this has...been a great restaurant in the past.More

The web sight and lack of ability to contact this establishment has forever changed how I feel about it. Apparently technology hasn't reached here yet. Very disappointed as a long time customer NOT to be able to leave a reservation. Call on a Sunday for...a large booking during the weekend and the phone simply disconnects. No answer. Nothing.More

This is a nondescript restaurant at the edge of Ancaster, but love the food! The staff are so friendly, and the quality of the food is second to none. I have done take out and think it is the best Thai food in the greater...Hamilton area. You will not be disappointed with anything here, but I must say the green curry is tops in my books. Looking forward to the next time I order from here.More

This place was recommended by our customers and I was skeptic so considering it’s in a gas station plaza and the outside is less to be desired . When you step in, it’s a nice looking restaurant. There were 3 of us and we shared...pad Thai, fried chicken rice and general chicken dish and it was fantastic . The portions aren’t super big but big in taste If I ever come back to Ancaster, I will definitely come backMore
