Our Latest Great Place To Eat - Tamra Thai

Monday 10 April 2023

Just a few hundred metres from the bustling Dunne’s Stores at Cornelscourt, there is the calmness of the beautiful Cabinteely Park, plus a number of small cafes and restaurants, including the excellent Tamra Thai restaurant.

It’s set in a black fronted building at the traffic lights beside the dinkiest picture post card little old Post Office and diagonally across from the equally picturesque Garda Station.
As it transpired, there’s a tale within every tale, Tamra is a sibling of the excellent Veda Indian restaurant, which is owned by Krishan Kant who originally trained as a chef with the prestigious Taj Group in India.

The menu proved to be extensive with starters including traditional Thai style spiced fish cakes; kai satay; duck spring rolls; golden fried tiger prawns; chicken wings, wontons, sticky finger ribs, crispy pork belly, and a selection of salt & chilli pepper coated calamari, prawns, or wings. They also have a platter for two, which can be a good way of trying a few different thing, or one of my favourite dishes – aromatic duck for two.

Rena being vegetarian chose golden fried sweetcorn cakes which, spiced with kaffir lime and paprika, were delicious light and crispy, served with sweet chilli sauce. It was the aromatic quarter duck for me, well sliced both moist and crispy, served with julienned leek, carrot and cucumber with steamed pancakes and hoisin sauce.

Again, the selection of curries, salads, sides, soups, fish & seafood, noodles and stirfries was extensive – we were really spoiled for choice.
