Tamarind Hill offers a varied menu of authentic and unique Malaysian cuisine for lunch and dinner.
When driving all the way from downtown to New Westminster, we were hoping the food would be worth the ride. And it really was!
Our group of 4 shared spring rolls and roti-canai, which were pretty good (and oily). We shared 3 vegetarian dishes of which the Sambal Chili was the absolute best (again deep-fried) and the Sayur Lemak (veggies in coconut gravy) and Indian Mee Goreng (noodles) were fantastic too.
The service, which we barely noticed between bites, was quick and friendly enough. The value was great, too - between the four of us, we paid just $50!
I try this restauant a while ago, food was too oily and too salty.
Sevice is a little bit slow. The server don't have enough experience. People woking there don't have smile.
I have been eating in all different Malay restauants, seems like they are coping the other restauant's whole meun, decoration, drinks and even music. Poor peoples there!!
Don't bother to go there.
I visited this place twice over the last year. The first time I didn't enjoy it very much because the fish was just soooooo salty! And the service was extremely slow. However, the second time I went here for dineout new west, the food was great! So I guess your experience at this restaurant will depend on how lucky you are. But it is worth a try!
I been to this restaurant maybe 6 or 7 times and still love it. I tend to go during the week, so I get a restaurant that has some people in it, but is not crowded. They have this roti, not sure what it's called, but it's my favorite. I could eat that appie all day!! Curry is good too.
The food from this restaurant may be great and tasty but they serve very little for the amount you pay! Its not really worth it unless your in for a really small dish...they also play a bit of malaysian sounding music with old-fashioned lights and walls....but really fancy looking! On the weekends the lineups are horrible and so overcrowded! It's nosy here and there so try to go on the weekdays....
The food here is decent although it is too mild for me. It feels likes a watered down version of the real thing. They have hiked up their price again and it is quite pricey. Portions are very small as well. On a good note, the manager is very friendly and makes an effort to check in with the customers. I would recommend it for the occassional dinner visit; I think lunch is cheaper though.
My husband and I visited this delightful restaurant tonight and could not wait to share our great time with you. We started with the mango and green papaya salad and it was an wonderful combination of sweet, sour, soft and crunchy, the flavours and textures all complimenting one another and with just the right dose of "heat". Yum. We next had the roti canai which is a must. The dipping sauce was perfect and the hint of sweet to this crepe-like bread made another great contrast. We had the Chicken Curry, which we enjoyed but the Char Hor Fun was absolutely incredible. It had that flash fried, smoky flavour to it. The noodles were perfect and the sauce, oh my, the sauce was what captured out attention. Each mouthful was divine. We traveled throughout southeast Asia and dined in some great places in Malaysia... this is as close as it gets, folks. We live in Burnaby and the trip to New West took us al of ten minutes... what a treat! The ambiance in this venue is lovely, simple, elegant, very asian/indian, just beautiful. Best of all was the service. Louis, our host and a lovely young woman who told us about how much her kids love the Char Hor Fun, were very attentive, sweet and made us feel very comfortable right away. The food came quickly... but take your time, savour the wonderful flavours and the obvious care that goes into each meal. We will be back, again and again.
Ive eaten at Tamarind Hill many times. Ive also eaten at many other south east asian restaurants all over vancouver and south east asia specifically singapore and malaysia.
Anyone who is from south east asia will know that the chicken rice at Tamarind Hill tries to be just that, authentic. While i can't say it is the best chicken rice ever, the chicken has been consistantly moist, tender, juicy and tasty. The rice however id try to make a bit tastier and not so dry, but i guess it depends whatever people like.
The murtabak is the best in vancouver ive tasted and the most authentic although a little jazzed up. Really friendly servers, quaint atmosphere and area.
Our family goes at least once a week so im sure they enjoy it as well!
While running around doing errands on one of our few days off, my fiancee suggested we try this place and are we both glad she did. From the moment we walked in, the staff treated us as if they had known us for years. The service was amazing. Once we decided what we wanted and placed our orders, the food was on the table within ten minutes. Perfect, especially if you're on a lunch break. The food itself was fantastic, spicy but not overpowering and everything cooked just right. We have not been able to make it back here for dinner yet, but are definitely looking forward to it. To Scot and all the staff: keep up the good work!
Excellent, spicy, food full of interesting flavours; great service; reasonable prices; comfortable seating; good atmosphere and interior design. A very welcome addition to the New Westminster restaurant scene.
