Tamara Preston (née Huáng born Huáng Mei or Mei Huáng) was a new waitress who came with Gary from his travels to Hong Kong.
When Tamara first appeared in the restaurant, both Miranda and Stevie competed to become her best friend before conceding when they found her to be too lively and over-active for them. It was eventually revealed that she was not just a friend of Gary's but was officially married to Gary to allow her to enter the UK to study. She then left the restaurant to avoid it from becoming awkward. As a goodbye present she left her painting of a naked Miranda.
