Tamarine is a contemporary Vietnamese restaurant that features the light but flavor-intensive culinary delicacies of Vietnam. The restaurant offers a menu based on small plates, promoting the Vietnamese tradition of the 'shared' meal in which food is shared and enjoyed with those close. Tamarine's small plate entrees are enjoyed with the pairing of a variety of aromatic, flavor infused rice, designed to be mixed and matched to create a truly unique flavor experience. Along with culinary delicacies of Vietnam, the restaurant showcases the works of emerging artists from Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries. Semi-annual exhibits will close with a cocktail event to auction the art. Proceeds will be donated to La Maison Chance, an orphanage in Saigon, Vietnam.

"We frequently go to Tamarine, mostly for dinner. I am starting to get disappointed with the quality of the lunch dishes, even though the dinner and lunch menu are the same, I believe (with the exception of their lunch special). I'm assuming the chefs at lunch are not as experienced/trained as the evening staff? The pili pili prawns were a complete disappointment, and way too pricey.
Even the service is very different between lunch and dinner. The place was not crowded, our reservations were at 12:15, group of 4, but we had to wait a long time for our main dishes after appetizers were long finished."
