Cuisine: Contemporary
Price Point: Mains from Above $35

It's the most awarded restaurant in all of sunny Cairns and it's not hard to see why. Eastern-inspired cuisine plus fresh produce and faultless service prove to be a winning formula at Tamarind.

At Tamarind, modern glamour is at the forefront and it should be at the top of your list if you're wanting to impress a certain someone. The crisp white tablecloths are joined by comfy chairs, perfectly complemented by the sky-scraper ceilings, contemporary lighting and an unmistakable air of luxury.

Elegant and exceptional, Tamarind’s Eastern inspired cuisine, handcrafted from the freshest local produce, delivers exquisite flavours, impeccably served. For starters, try their gin and tonic salmon, coconut braised pork belly or seared halloumi. Move on to a Penang duck curry, pork belly with spicy plum sauce or XO cured eye fillet.

Ask the friendly staff for their wine recommendations if you're overwhelmed by the choice. Alternatively, add an extra touch of glamour with their strawberry and basil caprioska cocktail or tamarind iced tea. If you really want to let your hair down, the Saigon kiss is for you!

Absolutely loved it. The food was amazing and the service was faultless. Little extras like free appetiser and complimentary drinks at any casino bar after dinner were greatly appreciated. We had a great night, thanks First Table and Tamarind ❤️

It was one of the most enjoyable dinning experiences we had. We highly recommend anyone who enjoys fine dinning to go the Tamarind Restaurant. The food, atmosphere and service were all fantastic. The waiter just couldn't do enough for you. We have selected the share entree option and it was so good. Overall, it was a very memorable dinner for us.

Exceeded all expectations. The staffs knowledge of the food & wine was without fault, Also explaining each course as it was delivered. Quality of produce is second to none. Looking forward to dining here again with or without a discount.

Quality dining experience. Difficult to decide amongst all the delicious offerings listed in the à la carte menu, we ended up sharing 4 selections from each course and none disappointed. Staff were attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommended

Awesome meal
First table discount was a huge value for money bonus.
but to be honest, meal was worth every penny of its normal pricing.
Starters were great, mains devine, deserts fab and even the coffee was top notch (and i own a coffee shop)
Staff were great
Couldn't fault the experience
Will be back.

We were given a table facing the street and it was really lovely as the lights outside came on. really intimate and cosy. Service was top class. We chose the degustation menu with the wine paring. Well, it was SUPERB! Wow, highly recommended.

Staff was very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Great presentation of the shared plate and taste delicious. The baby Barra taste fantastic and the steak was cooked to perfection. Using First Table to book our dinner gave us 50% off the mains and entree so it was a win, win for us. Fantastic night, well done Tamarind.

The food was absolutely outstanding. From presentation to plate choice to flavour and contrast. The service was a bit erratic as different waiters attended to us. The atmosphere is private and relaxing. I can't wait to go back. Thank you so much Tamarind!

Great staff, lovely ambience in the cool & sophisticated restaurant. Entree of scollops yummy, my wife had the Duck Curry, couldn't finish it all and regretted not putting the dog bag in the car. I had the lamb neck, equally yummy but a little disappointed with the lotus root chips which were too fatty & too bulky. Great wine, reasonably priced and pannacotta for dessert was light & delicate. Great meal to celebrate a wedding anniversary & friends birthday. Dave
