Tamarind Seed - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
Food was just okay. Didn't taste authentic, but my food was enjoyable. I had the pad prik king and it had a strong vinegar flavor to it... I actually enjoyed that but it tasted less like the pad prik red curry dish I am used to and more like some other ethnicity's cuisine -- maybe Chinese or Singaporean. The quality if the chicken (white meat) I ate was good.
One person in my party said his chicken was chewy and he did not care for it. The void was not even spicy hot for me -- despite my ordering it five out of four stars (not a mistake... I intentionally order above the star level because I do like it hot and most places cater to the masses that do not handle hot food well)
I also found the food to be expensive for Thai food
Overall the place is okay. I believe the restaurant will be relocating and opening with a new identity soon based on a sign near the door.
Appetizer was pretty good, entrees were tasty, even if a little too much garlic was used. Service was barely adequate. I think it has the opportunity to be a top notch Thai restaurant, but it needs to increase service and food quality. I doubt I'd go back until I saw a review praising its service.
Crowded and quite loud. Hostess told us at the door that they were backed up and that they might not get our food in time for our theatre time. We ordered just cold appetizers and she made sure we got our food quickly. The food was good. Staff seemed generally overwhelmed and disorganized. The dining room and rest rooms could have been cleaner.
After 20 minutes and prompting from us, the waiter took our order. Couldn't answer questions about the menu. Appetizers arrived and no drinks. After another prompt, we got drinks. Once the food arrived, we never heard from the waiter again until he brought the bill (certainly not because they were busy). Woman, who appeared to a manager, used the excuse that the waiter was new. It's management's fault for not training rather than the waiter's fault.
Now about the food - to call it bland is kind. Thai food should taste like Thai food, spicy and fresh, not mushy like it came from a buffett. Thai food from a mall food court would have been better.
The hostess was more interested in texting someone, with her back to the hostess stand.
Overall horrible experience. Need new management or deep pockets to remain open. I gave it 1 star only because 0 was not an option. This was more than generous.
I decided to go to Tamarind Seed on my Birthday, April 27 2017 since I had never had Thai food and wanted a different experience. My first impression was the look and atmosphere was nice, I felt I was in Hemisphere. The waiter was extremely professional and cooperative in helping me with the menu. I ordered the lamp dish with Steamed rice. I was impressed with the presentation of the dish then I tasted the lamp and it was melt in your mouth wonderful. Two months later in June when a friend decided to meet me for lunch, I suggested Tamarind Seed so I could have the Lamb again. I wanted to try something different but I could not resist having the Lamb again and it was fantastic. My friend had a Shrimp fried rice and she said it was great. We also order two appetizers Chicken screwers with peanut sauce. It too was great. Will go again soon. I want to try the pineapple rice!
We were seated immediately, even though we arrived early. The waitress was helpful when one of us wanted to substitute prawns for the tofu in a dish. We shared 2 orders of the Thai spring rolls which were so good. All our plates were appealing to sight and taste. We enjoyed the jumbo shrimp masala curry, vegetables with prawns substitute and a mixed seafood dish.
Tamarind Seed never lets me down. It is a great place for a business lunch by day or a nice evening out with my wife by night. If you are looking for the best Asian food in Atlanta, look no further than Tamarind or Nan. The food is spectacular and the service is spectacular. What more can you ask for. I very rarely review but I have never had a bad meal in the 9-10 years that I have been dining at Tamarind. Consistently excellent means something in all business and is particularly true in dining. Thank you for a consistently great dining experience.
We told the waitress that we were going to a show and needed to be out quickly. We ordered appetizers right away. After 30 minutes we asked where our appetizers were – and she said we're out of your appetizers . We would've appreciated knowing that right away so that we could order different appetizers. Then we waited another 20 minutes for the food and the service was not good at all.
