Phad Thai with/without tamarind

I love phad thai, but it seems that some restaurants in Victoria use tamarind, and others don't. (Then again, one of these "thai" restaurants doesn't use fish sauce in theirs, either.)

Can anyone tell me which is correct? Is the phad thai flavour I like (with tamarind) regional to BC, or is it actually Thai? I have never been to Thailand, and I don't even know if phad thai exists there.
