    Nice outdoor seating with heated lamps. Vietnamese crepe is good! So are the lemon grass beef rolls and fried egg rolls. Next time I want to try the coconut rice cakes.

    Oh wow, where to begin? This hidden spot is FANTASTIC. Parking might be tough, but it’s well worth the challenge--though call ahead for a reservation! Everything was delicious, and veg friendly.

    While it’s fairly casual, they do have a nice reservation system on the website, which even allows you to select which table you’d like, guaranteeing you’ll get the outdoor spot you want.

    The seven courses of beef is a lot of food for most, offers a great balance of fresh and hot veggie/beef, and very worth it!

    Really well done Vietnamese food - great weekend lunch specials for only around $7 and huge portions. Loved the dry noodle with tomato sauce. Super unique and special dish

    Bridging the divide between no-frills pho joints and higher-end Vietnamese dining, Tamarind Tree has an enormous menu of dishes that feel high end, even if prices may not be. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Cocktails were so good I tried two: Tamarintini & Papaya Martini, both delicious! Extensive menu, will definitively be back. Cinnamon pork balls w/ fresh coconut & lemongrass beef skewers were great!

    Their crepe with lettuce wrap was amazing as recommended by the waitor and we finished off with the coconut gelatin dessert which was big enough for 3! We were so full but glad we didn't miss this.

    Good for lunch, but skip for dinner, unless waiting for 30 min for your order is something you're into. Also, they don't bring out everything at once, so someone's food is gonna get cold
