546 University Avenue
(between Webster & Cowper)
Palo Alto

Cuisine: Vietnamese/Asian

Description & Atmosphere
Palo Alto has no shortage of good restaurants and this one is a gem. In fact, we can sum up Tamarine in one word — fabulous!

Elegant Asian decor includes an exhibit of Vietnamese contemporary fine art.

Food
The Asian-inspired menu features light, flavor-intensive culinary delicacies of Vietnam. Small plate dishes promote the Vietnamese tradition of the "family style" meal where food is shared — what better way to sample a variety of Tamarine's exquisite offerings...
