We ordered the Malaysian curry. The curry sauce was pretty good but the vegetables were just soooo overlooked and mushy.

We also ordered the beef noodles (i forget the title of the menu item). we had to send it back (eek!) because it was just so overlooked and the noodles became mushy.

They did not mess up the fried rice. But who can?

It was disappointing to see a young caucasian kid cooking the food. This is clearly not an authentic Malaysian restaurant.

I'm very surprised by the good reviews...because this place just doesn't have good food.

We happened to be on Lonsdale for dinner and dropped in on Tamarind Hill for the first time. Service was prompt and friendly, prices reasonable. The food was very good - great flavours, nice level of spice, well executed. Overall a great experience and an unexpected surprise for us. We ate the Malaysian calamari, kari lamb, and a flat noodle dish (with seafood) the name of which I can't remember (but it was very good). All of it was excellent. Lots of vegetarian options on the menu. We'll be back.

The food is outstanding and the service is great. Servers are able to assist vegetarians with sumptuous selections. One if my favourites in North Vancouver

The red snapper in the banana leaf and the soft shell crab are my two favourite dishes. The roti and nasi goreg are also fantastic. I eat here or do take-out as often as I can!

Small restaurant with nice cosy atmosphere. The waitress was great even when the restaurant filled up she was running around like mad.

The Roti Canai was very good, flaky and sweet. The Char Kuey Teow ( noodles were also very good, but on the light flavoured side.

The Sayur Lemak (vegetable curry) and chicken curry were very bland, only saved by the Hainanese Chicken Rice.

The Sambal Green beans had eggplant ( ???yuck) otherwise was good.
