TAMARIND THAI CUISINE's arrival finally answered the question we've all been asking ourselves privately: Does all Thai food taste alike? Our city is full of very good Thai restaurants and Tamarind serves the same dishes many others do. But Charlie and Nan Nikomkul make something especially magical happen to their pad Thai, nua namtok and noodle dishes. Sauces are never thin and seasonings stimulate every aspect of the palate. Fantastic service and great decor too.
