Sure, it’s a cafe in name and the relaxed vibe of this Claremont favourite certainly suits lounging with a coffee for the afternoon; but the food here on St Quentin Avenue better befits an elegant restaurant. Slow-cooked Amelia Park lamb shank, twice-cooked duck and a premium ribeye steak with mushroom and truffle sauce are some of the stars of Tamarind Cafe’s selection of impressive mains, but there are plenty of other hints on their menu as to why some head to Claremont from all over Perth simply to eat here: we’re talking baked eggs with Persian bread or smashed avocado with heirloom tomatoes for breakfast, an irresistible pulled beef sandwich with apple slaw and chipotle dressing for lunch, and a range of exceptional Asian dishes including an authentic nasi goreng and traditional beef rendang. In case you’re already drooling and heading towards St Quentin Avenue, bear in mind that Tamarind Cafe is a popular spot and you’ll likely need an advance booking to avoid waiting!
Great service. Tucked away and in a very pleasant setting. The satay was amazing with that nice slightly charred flavor. Plus they're BYO which I love.
Awesome food, fantastic friendly service, will definitely be back again ! Loved the atmosphere of the restaurant, children friendly. Definitely a hidden gem ! 😊
