Concidering there was only 7 tables, the service wasn't that good. They forgot to bring my drink and was sat without a nap king for some time. The food was good but not great. The best of it all was the starter, however, the main...More

Went last Saturday - it was really busy but we still had very good and friendly service - the food was delicious and not overpriced. We have already booked to go again.

First of all £3.50 for a 330ml beer is way over priced in my opinion Starters were very good but the chicken in my main was tough and over cooked

Located a short walk from the station, this place has become our first choice when we don't want to cook after a long day at work. We have always found the food to be of high quality and reasonably priced. Service is very swift and...More

We were looking for a Thai Restaurant with good food and stumbled across Tamarind on line. It’s cheap and cheerful but good food and friendly service.... starters were to die for. Main courses could have been a bit spicier but we will definitely be back...More

This is a really nice, small restaurant in Rickmansworth. It gets quite busy and usually is when we have been here. I guess that is due to good food, but also the size of the place. It is very nice though.

We do not generally book a table, arriving soon after opening on a Saturday evening. Always feel welcome and are looked after straight away. The food is amazing and always prepared with care and attention to detail.

This is a great little restaurant. Food and service is always great and its always busy. They really need a bigger place as they would fill it no probs.

No I don't think so. This is a very busy little cafe/restaurant. The ambience is basic but pleasing and the food exceptional. I would hesitate to want to take a small baby or child there as room is at a premium. Not saying... More

Quit the diet for one night and enjoy one of the best Thai restaurants around! Seriously though, if you speak to the owner Sasima , she will give you ideas for less rich dishes. Thai food isnt that fattening anyway.
