My wife and I had a very nice meal here. Nice decor, the perfect level of lighting, and relatively attentive service. The food was outstanding. The chutneys we had with the poppadoms were really fresh and delicious. Excellent chicken kashmiri and naan. The biryani was very good but the flavor was a little overpowered by the tikka chicken, so next... More

Have eaten here lots - mainly takeaway but restaurant too. Last night was the first time in a while and it was incredibly disappointing. Won't be going back. Starter was very small (semi acceptable) Naan bread was the smallest I've ever been given (it was tiny), after literally hundreds of curries at tens of different restaurants around the country. Main... More

Another visit to Tamarind and we came away happy. The food was great. Poppadoms are excellent as is the naan. King Prawn pathia has stacks of prawns and loads of flavour. Great lamb sag and enough for two. Chicken rogan hit the spot. The house wine is good value and very cold. We also ordered three different rice dishes and... More

We've eaten here a few times because it's near our house. Most of the staff are nice and the decor is pleasant. However, the food really isn't that good. I think tonight was our last visit.

Once again I find myself writing a review about a restaurant where the food is great but the service poor. We went here on a Saturday night without booking. This is obviously not a good idea (i.e. not booking on a Saturday). Anyway we got there at 19:45 and were told a table would be available between 20:00 and 20:15.... More

I must congratulate you Tamarind on the ability to pass yourselves off as a Restaurant. I've cooked better curries whilst sleep walking, blindfolded with cat food as my only ingredient. All the food was luke warm, the naan somehow seemed to be wet the chicken dry and the sauce of the dopiaza was disrespectful to my taste buds. The slice... More

So this is the place for us. Unlike a lot of Indian restaurants, the staff are pollute and engaging and smile!!! The place is unhurried and relaxing. We often go with friends as we know we can sit and chat over reasonably priced meal and bottle of wine (or two). The manager is in a class of his own. Always... More
