Our Menu:

Curry without coconut milk? Yes, our delicious sour vegetable curry will be served with jasmine or brown rice. This Thai entrée is called Gaeng Som Pak which translates to Sour Vegetable Curry. It can be vegetarian or with shrimp.

Day Longsomboon is a chef and a co-owner of the Tamarind Thai Restaurant in Miami Beach. Her family learned to cook from the members of the Thai royal households.  Day learned firsthand how to prepare the kinds of dishes that are cooked in traditional Thai kitchens from her grandparents and parents.  Prior to opening the restaurant, she was a researcher at the Diabetes Research Institute, University of Miami. It was there that she began to recognize the health benefits of her native cuisine.  Since then, Day has been researching healthy diet, nutrients, and the ingredients of Thai cuisine. Her passion for cooking has led her to open this restaurant with a mission of sharing her healthy native cuisine with those who seek to try something new.
