The Tamarind at Spicers Tamarind was last night awarded BEST ASIAN RESTAURANT at Queensland's Restaurant & Catering Awards for Excellence.
Lead by Executive Chef Daniel Jarrett, The Tamarind specialises in Modern Asian Cuisine, embracing the flavours, philosophies and unique culinary cultures of Thailand, Korea, China, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos with emphasis on Western presentation and palates to create a modern twist.
Daniel Jarrett was trained in the French tradition and spent time travelling through China and Malaysia learning the secrets of Asia's unique culinary culture, before turning his hand to creating his celebrated dishes at The Tamarind.
Daniel Jarrett comments: “We are thrilled with this industry recognition of our efforts at The Tamarind and are proud to be a part of putting the Sunshine Coast on the culinary map. We work hard to create a dining experience that is the perfect meeting of the traditional and the new to inspire the palate and provide a true taste of Asia”.
