Located down a quiet residential street in Thao Dien, this restaurant has a wide-range of Japanese cuisine, including the obligatory sushi and sashimi options, as well as tempura, yakitori, hot pot, ramen, and soba and udon noodles. Prices range from VND 50,000 for starters to VND 400,000 for a hot pot. Sushi rolls cost between VND 50,000 and VND 150,000 each.
Tama River opens from 10am-2pm and 5-10pm, seven days
When you feel like healthy, home-cooked style but don’t want to eat in; when you feel like crunchy tempura and hot udon; when you want to relax and enjoy a variety of sushi dishes, Tama River in Thao Dien is the obvious choice.
Even my 3 year old votes for Tama River as his first choice for eating out in Thao Dien.
The restaurant offers 3 floors of seating. Upstairs, and most popular with the kids, the dining rooms are furnished with Japanese style tables- and a more comfortable version of the “chabudai”.
Around 3 members of staff are available on every floor to serve guests and so the service is always prompt and precise.
For lunch, especially at the weekends, it is probably best to book as families in Thao Dien choose Tama River to dine. With their fantastic wide-variety set lunch menu, all between 140,000 VND to 250,000 VND, this place has become one of the most successful eateries in the area.
Our favourites on the set lunch menu are:
– Chicken Teriaki set for our 3 year old
– Maki Udon set for me
– Beef Teriaki and Sashimi set for my husband…
All sets come with tea, salads, a small side dish, miso soup, steamed egg and (!) a sweet dessert, which is usually a cold refreshing bowl of red bean pudding.
And that is possibly one of the reasons why Tama River is so well loved: meal portions are impressive yet you leave the restaurant feeling healthy, good on the body and satisfyingly full!
Well done Tama River for enchanting kids and adult alike with your brilliance.
