We had a party of 4 which must have been invisible to the staff. Took us several tries to flag down anyone to get water and give our order. Then it took forever for the food to come...may other diners received their food even though they ordered after us. The eggplant dish was our best dish...it was very good. Would... More

No matter how many times I go to Tamarind Tree I am never disappointed with the quality of food, and at such at reasonable price. Today we had the Thang Long yellow fish, Tumeric coconut rice cake, and Tamarind Tree rolls all really good.

Get pho or your salad bowl here...along with lots of other, less common offerings like Lotus Root Salad or 7 Courses of Beef. Solid preparations. The thing that sets Tamarind Tree apart from most Vietnamese restaurants is that it's more upscale....once you get inside. Excellent service.

Great food, drinks, atmosphere, menu... I try to make it in to Tamarind Tree every time I come through Seattle. It's a good spot. Service is always on point too.

This restaurant has a great vibe. The staff is friendly, but with the restaurant being busy, they were a little slow in taking our order. Having said that, the food came our quite quickly. We ordered the Chicken Phở, Bamboo duck noodles, and Chili lemongrass chicken rice. The Chicken Pho was pretty basic, no sprouts or any add ons. The... More

Previous reviewers have this place right. Huge Menu, nice atmosphere, good service and terrific food. One thing I really appreciated was the accurate long in English descriptions of each dish. Makes it easy to decide what to get and will make it easy to try new things in the future. Definitely worth a trip.

A great choice for almost any occasion. The food is always very good. I try not to be boring and get the same thing over and over but it's challenging sometimes. I highly recommend a visit.

It was THE V N restaurant when it opened some years ago and was very popular. We went regularly but haven't in a good while. Stopped in at 5 PM on a Thursday and glad we did. Lots of free parking. Good timing, just a few diners, quiet, and for the first time seated at the fire pit, welcome on... More

This is one of the first "nice" Vietnamese restaurants in Seattle and it is still one of the best and the one all Vietnamese restaurants are compared to. The aging ambiance is still nice and the service is good. You'll find all the standards and some others to try out. Great place, I should come more often. They have weekend... More

Our family was actually going to try another Vietnamese restaurant, but found out it was closed for the holidays, so we decided to go here instead. It was a nice surprise. Space is fairly modern, and clean. We had: - Beef Meatball Pho - Good for the kids. Big enought to feed two small children, and some of the largest... More
