“it is a joy — to share this food around a table, to listen to Tiglao talk, to eat a story encoded in a meal that communicates something at once personal and cultural. It is not at all the sort of restaurant one wants to reduce to a number of stars; it is an experience, and if it is for you, you will know it after reading this.”

DEVRA FIRST, Boston Globe

“But merely calling Tanám cool and unique sells it short - because it’s also really freaking good. And what you’ll realize as the chef/owner is giving you the personal history behind a dish of mung bean noodles, blood pudding, and braised pork shoulder, is that Tanám makes Boston more of a complete city.”

DAN SECATORE, The Infatuation

“Tanám delivers something unique and uncommonly moving for a restaurant experience: fascinatingly eclectic, delicious food underpinned by an extraordinary level of human connection, lending a much more profound meaning to the notion of empathetic, multicultural family-style dining.”
