If you like clean, perfectly spiced, healthy food, you will not be disappointed!
We were looking for something new/vegetarian in Calgary and saw the ratings and comments for Tamarind, so we decided to check it out. What a great decision. This is a fully vegan, family owned restaurant, that makes most of their own ingredients and all sauces. The house made tofu is to die for.
We spoke with the owner, a very sweet lady, who told us her vision is to make good clean food, that nourishes the body. That is precisely what we were looking for and the food is definitely that.

Wow! Amazingly good. I came in here not realizing it was vegetarian but loved it. I had the Bun and the spring rolls. The only thing I do miss is the depth of flavour from the lack of fish sauce. Their hommade replacement is interesting but doesn't get there. I do understand they want no meat products in their kitchen but it would be nice to have the option. In the future I may only do takeout so I can use my own sauce. XD I didn't try a soup, which doesn't necessitate fish sauce, so I definitely wanna give that a shot.

The first time I came here, after they moved. This new Location is spacious. The service and the foods are excellent. The price and the size of foods are generous. Thank you and grateful to have a Vegan Vietnamese restaurant in Calgary. I strongly recommend for vegetarian to go.

Hands down my favourite restaurant in Calgary. Just exceptional. Even non-vegetarians will love it. I cannot say enough good things about this place. On every level - taste, presentation, freshness, it hits it out of the park. If you have not checked it out, I recommend that you do. You will not be dissapointed.

Vegan heaven. Found a good review for this on Happy Cow and so stoked we went. This is the BEST pho I have ever had, the taste is incredible and it’s a super friendly, loaded portion for a great price around 14 bucks.
I’m going again for lunch tomorrow whilst I’m the city on a short trip.
I asked for spicy so they put satay in mine which I think was even more delicious and aromatic. I’m not usually a fan of mock meats but it works so well and the fried tofu is incredible.
