Seattle's International District does not have many of the hidden alleyways and interesting sights of, say, San Francisco. But in terms of food, several places measure up, and then some. One of those is Tamarind Tree, located in a hard-to-spot location back off of the...More

This place was hard to find. It is at the back of a parking lot. We began with shrimp toast. This was not at all what I expected. It looked looked like a big donut. This was too much pastry and not enough shrimp. We...More

The place is relatively cleaner than other Vietnamese restaurants in the neighborhood. We ordered pancake and noodles, which came with heaps of fresh vegetables and herbs. The seven courses of beef were not as good as before. It's a casual hangout for friends and family....More

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...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...More
