Tamarind Tree may just be the best Vietnamese restaurant in town. Tucked in the corner of the frantic and somewhat haphazard Asian Shopping Center in the ID, the restaurant is surprisingly elegant, with a sophisticated and graceful ambiance that begins with the outdoor waterfall. Although delightfully classy, it is very affordable, with more-than-reasonable prices for excellent food. The menu is extensive and ranges from exotic concoctions to straightforward curries, with meat, poultry, seafood, and vegetarian dishes all well-represented. The Tamarind Tree Rolls - salad rolls with fresh herbs, fried tofu, roasted peanut, fresh coconut, jicama, and carrots, presented as little trees - are an especial treat. This is one of our favorite spots to mark a special occasion.
One note: for this event, we will certainly need firm RSVPs from anyone who plans to attend. Especially if our party is of any size, we will need to make a reservation in advance. We'll be planning for dinner at 7:00 pm. Let me know as soon as you can via email.
