“This was okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

This worked out to be okay. We were starving and the first few choices we had for dinner that evening did not work out. The portions were very large and that was good since everyone was starving. The food was a little bit bland. The biggest disappointment was the charges for the pitchers of tap water that they brought with dinner.

“Bad service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

Last evening in Tamarin Iso-Roba. The table next to us waited their food at least one hour, maybe more and the place was not crowded. No apologies, nothing when the food finally came. When checking out the gentleman who was taking care of the bill asked for a reasonable compensation, when the waiter suddenly lost her ability to understand finnish or any other language totally. Painful to watch, but this is very typical service we get here in Finland, no matter what the restaurants "cuisine" is...

“delicious green curry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013

I ate here couple of times during my visit to Helsinki. It was very good. Delicious Green Curry. A bit spicy but of course suit my Asian tongue.
The service was fast. The restaurant has a nice Thai ambiance.
Price was not too expensive. Totally affordable and totally recommended.

Great food every time, and they have recently renovated all their locations around town. Late lunch for 10 euros until 6pm :)

“Very good thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2013

The first time I entered this restaurant it was just a "let me see what they got" and after that I became addicted to their delicious dishes. My favorite dish at this restaurant is chicken phanaeng curry, I have tried some other thai restaurants around but here they do it better and I'm always tempted to go back for more.
