Party of 12 went to celebrate a birthday.Food was great as usual but was very slow in arriving..........nearly an hour from time of order to mains being served. Good value for money and very friendly service.

Called in with a few friends for a curry. We were seated quickly and our drinks order was taken as soon as we had settled. They have Cobra beer on tap at the small bar area. The restaurant is narrow and long with a rear entrance which leads you to the rear car park. We heard a recorded Happy Birthday... More

I have always loved the food in the Tamarind Risca, but I was disappointed last night. Service was good as usual. We asked for the waiters recommendation, and he was very friendly and happy to recommend from the specials, but we were both unimpressed with what we chose. Vegetable rice was excellent but the rest was edible but very average.

Met up with a group of friends for a meal here. Nice bar area for pre dinner drinks. Tables were not crammed in so space to move about. Plenty of staff on hand if we needed anything. Food arrived quickly and was hot and tasty. Even came home with a doggy bag. Good selection for all tastes and my mild... More

Great food and service as always. Very busy but food was delicious. A word of warning - check your bill very carefully - they added on bottles of wine and pints that were never ordered or brought to the table. They Caused a bit of a fuss when this was queried - the tickets had clearly been altered by hand... More

Take away or eat in. I have never had a bad experience. At times you can be waiting a little while between starters and mains but this is all forgotten when you dig into your food. Take away food is at a reduced price so always a good take away option if you don't mind picking up.

1st visit this evening. Excellent selection on menu all well priced. Meals were tasty with good portion sizes and very enjoyable. However service was poor. Waited over a hour and 1/4 for main meal after poppadom starter and had to call waiter each time for drinks, salt 'n pepper etc. - either understaffed or poorly trained.

6 in our group and we booked for 8pm. On arrival the restaurant was absolutely packed. No waiting, seated at our table straight away and drinks order taken and arrived within 5 minutes. Starters and mains ordered. Food was undeniably the best I've eaten. Service was fantastic. We were all given a stemmed carnation on leaving. Never been before but... More

Always have a lovely meal here, although when they are really busy, we tend to have to wait a long time, best to book.
